National Mall: DC's Iconic Hotspot!
The National Mall is America’s most-visited National Park for good reason, and this dazzling emerald green space lies just a few blocks from the Kimpton Hotel George. If it’s your first time visiting, make sure to pencil in some gawking time – for your first glimpse of the commanding Washington Monument stretching skyward and for all those moments you realize (again) that you’re walking through the backdrop of our nation’s most important moments.
Whether you love steeping in history or seek a creative jolt from cutting edge contemporary art, the famous Smithsonian Museums lining the edges of the National Mall have you covered (mostly free of charge, too)! Book ahead to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture, a newer addition to the Smithsonian family, or spontaneously stop by the Hirshhorn Museum for a contemplative gallery stroll. In addition to the museum offerings, you’ll come across lively DC scenes – food trucks and music, students reading in the shade, and possibly one of the fun events or festivals that populate the National Mall’s calendar.
Rent a bike or bring your walking shoes. Hop on a bus tour or explore solo. You can experience the most iconic spot in Washington DC your way. Hotel George is what you’ve been looking for: your gateway to the National Mall.
