Editor’s Note: The author of this story was hosted by Kimpton.

When you wake up in the room of an international hotel chain it can be hard to tell what city (or even country) you’re in. You definitely won’t have this issue if you’re staying at the Kimpton George Hotel in Washington, DC. This boutique hotel is themed around George Washington, and the property’s decor will remind you at every turn that you’re staying in our nation’s capital.

The outdoor terrace is a popular spot in the summer to see and be seen, and the indoor bar draws a big post-work happy hour crowd.
