Washington DC Contemporary Hotel
The Hotel George is a stylish, avant-garde boutique hotel in the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood, just one block from Union Station, suited for business and leisure travelers that's less than a half mile from the United States Capitol and easily accessible to Washington's leading attractions.
Union Station, visited by 32 million people each year is again one of Washington's busiest and best-known places. Architect Daniel Burnham in 1907 designed Union Station as a triumphal rail destination, orientated and opening to the United States Capitol Building, located only five blocks away.
Today, fully restored Union Station is the rail hub for East Coast travel to Washington DC, with daily passenger service including Amtrak's high-speed Acela Express linking Washington to Maryland and Virginia, respectively; and the Washington Metro Red Line. Recently Union Station began serving buses operated by Greyhound Lines, BoltBus, Megabus and Washington Deluxe, making travel easy and affordable from New York, Philadelphia, and other surrounding cities.
With 130 stores at Union Station features everything from men's and women's fashion to jewelry to decorative arts to games and toys. The Food Court at Union Station is a great place to enjoy a snack or take the whole family for a quick and inexpensive meal. Full service restaurants include America, B. Smith, East Street Café, Station Grill, Thunder Grill and Uno Chicago Grill.
