What to Do & See in DC

Consider us your very own capital crash pad — and the whole city is yours to explore. From our residential, tree-lined street in the Northwest quadrant, you're mere steps from thriving 14th Street, one of the city’s most transformed corridors. Explore its many bars, boutiques, galleries and restaurants. As you wander, there is so much rich history and stunning architecture to explore. Our highly walkable coordinates also grant easy access to nearby Dupont and Logan circles, U Street, the Convention Center, the White House and much more. And if you care to explore even further, there’s a Metro station just a 10-minute walk away, putting the entire capital city at your fingertips.

Local Attractions

14th Street Corridor

In recent decades, 14th Street Northwest has been greatly transformed and is now home to some of the most sought-after DC attractions. Soak in the rich history and stunning architecture while you hatch your day's plan. Choose from many buzzworthy bars, boutiques and eateries. While checking out the vibrant north-south trajectory along 14th that runs from Thomas Circle to U Street and beyond, enjoy daytime shopping and gallery-gazing as well as anytime eats and people-watching. After the sun sets, you have options: creative cocktails, theater productions and live concerts in venues where jazz greats like Duke Ellington once reigned.

Capital One Arena

Both sports and live music fans staying at Viceroy Washington DC are in luck — we're located just a 25-minute walk from Capital One Arena. This 20,600-seater stadium is home to the Washington Capitals of the NHL, the Washington Wizards of the NBA, and the Georgetown University men's basketball team. Staying at a hotel near Capital One Arena also puts you in prime position to enjoy the venue's spectacular lineup of concerts and events. Visit the website for schedule and ticket information.

Convention Center 

We admit we have some pretty cool neighbors here in DC, and the Walter E. Washington Convention Center tops the list. This 2.3 million-square-foot conventions and meetings facility — which opened in 2003 and is one of the most energy-efficient buildings for its size — boasts numbers like 703,000 square feet of exhibit space, 77 customizable meeting rooms, the region’s largest ballroom, and a $4 million art collection. Located on two Metro lines, the Convention Center can also easily be reached on foot; it’s just 15 minutes from our front door.

The White House & Beyond

Our hotel is a 15-minute walk from the famous Pennsylvania Avenue address, and the adjacent Lafayette Square is a great place to people-watch or enjoy a picnic lunch picked up along the way. Beyond a White House visit, our proximity to the McPherson Square Metro station also puts all of the Smithsonian museums and most of the city’s iconic buildings and monuments within reach. Sure, you can easily hop in a taxi or Uber, too, but walkers will be pleasantly surprised to find their temporary home in a highly pedestrian-friendly zone, surrounded by the best DC activities.
