Capital One Arena brings the fun

Kimpton George Hotel’s proximity to the Capital One Arena, formerly known as Verizon Center, places guests right near the action. This state-of-the-art sports and entertainment arena in the Chinatown/Penn Quarter neighborhood comes to life several nights a week with national and global entertainment acts, ranging from The Black Keys to Madonna. The 20,000-seat arena presents something for everyone - world-class sporting events, concerts, family shows, trade shows, and more.

Cheer On DC's Sports Teams

A bevy of local sports teams call this hub home, including the Washington Wizards, Washington Mystics, Georgetown Hoyas Men's Basketball, and Washington Capitals. The arena comes alive with passionate fans, resonating with cheers and the buzz of anticipation. Beyond the on-court or on-ice action, there's a plethora of food and beverage options to enjoy, from classic game-day snacks to gourmet offerings. And given the arena's central location, it's easy to make a game night a full evening out, with numerous restaurants, bars, and landmarks just a short walk away.
