The Top 5 Hotels in DC According to a DC Limo Driver

The Top 5 Hotels in DC According to a DC Limo Driver

Coming to visit DC? Great! You’re gonna love it! You need a reliable DC car service? Great! I’m your man. Parking is a hassle in DC anyway, so enlisting a car service is a good way to go. Just hop right in my limo and tell me which DC hotel you’re staying at. . . . What do you mean, “You don’t know”? Okay, there are a lot of hotels in DC—having a lot of choices is the American way, right? But it can make decisions difficult. My limo clients stay in hotels all over DC. I don’t mean to brag (this time), but I know my hotels. So without further ado . . . A DC car service driver’s top five hotels in the city. These are great for business trips, trips with friends, and weekend getaways. 1. Four Seasons If you’re looking to impress someone, stay at the Four Seasons. It’s the most expensive hotel in DC. That combined with the sleek limo you’ll no doubt be riding around in should make an impression on even the most reluctant clients. The Four Seasons is elegant, but not ostentatious. You’re not going to find mermaids swimming in in-wall fish tanks or anything. It’s understated elegance, with spacious rooms. They also go out of their way with service, so if you’re hosting a business function here, everything should run smoothly. It’s also in a great location in Georgetown, close to DC sights and shops. 2. Carlyle Suites I’m following up the most expensive hotel in DC with one of the most affordable (without venturing into franchise-chain territory). The Carlyle...

Ask a DC Limo Driver: The Top 5 DC B&Bs

Last week, I talked about the top five hotels in Washington, DC. The kinds of places that you always see DC limousines pulling away from because important people are always going and coming. But not everybody’s a “swanky hotels” and “limousines” kind of guest. Sometimes, you want a comfy feel for your trip. That’s where DC’s best B&Bs can serve you. The bed and breakfasts in DC are as welcoming as my mom’s house (but without constant texting about not being late for dinner). Which bed and breakfasts should you stay at? Here are my recommendations. A DC limousine driver’s top 5 B&Bs in our nation’s capital 1 & 2. Woodley Park & Embassy Circle It’s not that I couldn’t make a decision for the top spot. (Drivers of DC limousines can’t be indecisive.) It’s that Woodley and Embassy are run by the same brothers-in-law, Raymond and Joe, who restored them from run-down conditions. Both B&Bs feel like modern suburban homes . . . if we’re talking about an upscale DC suburb where Martha Stewart designed every interior. The rooms are full of natural light, and all the artwork is done by guests who happen to be artists. Hopefully you’ll get the Mascarpone French Toast at breakfast—and don’t skip the coffee! (It’s really good.) Both B&Bs are located downtown, in the middle of attractions and restaurants, and Metro isn’t far. For special outings, DC limousines services can pull right up to the inns. During renovations, Raymond and Joe installed high-efficiency, green appliances at both inns. So if you’re an eco-traveler, Woodley Park and Embassy Circle are great choices. Taft...
