There’s no need to leave town to indulge in a little romance with your sweetheart. Here, a few local spots to spend a magical weekend for two.
Spare no expense when it comes to your beloved with a stay in this lush suite, which has 1,900-square feet of space that includes a feathertop king bed, fireplace, and full bar. Make it a second honeymoon with the hotel’s “So in Love” offer that provides in-room breakfast or in the restaurant, a bottle of fine or sparkling wine, a bouquet of flowers, and a box of decadent chocolates. 806 15th St. NW, 202-730-8800
Channel royals like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in this lavish 4,000-square-foot suite replete with contemporary yet classic touches and a hint of art deco. Venture outside to the furnished terrace, perfect for alfresco dining in the crisp autumn air. Afterwards, relax in the oversized sculptural bathtub or curl up in front of the 60-inch television. 2800 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, 202-342-0444
Thanks to an in-room kitchenette and lavish king-sized bed, you may never have a reason to leave this rich red suite. Opt for the red hot romance package that comes with sparkling wine upon check-in or, if you want to mingle with other hotel guests, head downstairs to partake in this spot’s nightly wine hour in the lobby. 1315 16th St. NW, 202-232-8000
Staycation like a VIP in this hotel’s Thomas Jefferson suit, where dignitaries and heads of state frequently choose to lay their heads. Dripping in red and gold design inspired by the White House, guests can enjoy expansive views of Pennsylvania Avenue before sitting down to tuck into dishes like a sesame crusted salmon or wild mushroom risotto in the room’s oval dining space. 1401 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, 202-628-9100
The best views of DC come courtesy of this top-floor suite, named after President Jefferson’s wife, that easily lends itself to a romantic escape for couples. Three Juliet balconies, a gas fireplace, and a canopied king bed comprise the living spaces, while the bathroom features a soaking tub for two. 1200 16th St. NW, 202-448-2300
