The Jefferson, Washington DC

The Jefferson, Washington DC Rating: 5.0 Pearls

After a massive renovation in 2009, this boutique reopened, and regained its place among DC's elite hotels. It's not as famous as the Hay-Adams, but its subtle blend of technology (TVs embedded in bathroom mirrors; electronic housekeeping buttons) and colonial charms (intimate library, working dumbwaiter) are second to none. All that's missing is T.J. himself. (Oh wait, no. Here he is. ... )

The Hay-Adams

The Hay-Adams Rating: 5.0 Pearls

Quite possibly the most famous hotel in the capital, and deservedly so. The Hay-Adams draws powerbrokers from around the world with its impeccable service, great bar and restaurant, and elegant rooms, some of which overlook its famous next-door neighbor. P.S. It's where the Obamas stayed before the inauguration (if it's good enough for the President ... ).

The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown

The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Forget gilded mirrors. The 86-room Ritz-Carlton Georgetown, housed in an historic industrial building, has the original brick and steel beams and a cozy slate fireplace in the lobby. But its aesthetic allure drops off from there. Service is excellent and its central Georgetown location is superb, but rooms are dull and the gym is disappointingly small.

Donovan House

Donovan House Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Donovan House is a sleek offering that's helping define Obama-era D.C. cool along with hip counterparts like the W and the Dupont Hotel. From its dark-purple-and-white color scheme, to its pod-shaped "cocoon" showers, to its mod lobby, and rowdy rooftop pool parties, the Donovan House offers a sexy night in the nation's capital.

Hotel Monaco Washington D.C.

Hotel Monaco Washington D.C. Rating: 4.0 Pearls

With many bold decorative touches, most notably a dramatic setting in a landmarked Penn Quarter building, this is certainly a flashy Kimpton Hotels property, with a great location and a well-regarded restaurant. Too bad the service and rooms fall short.

W Washington DC

W Washington DC Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The gorgeous, 317-room W Washington D.C. opened in July 2009, taking over the historic Hotel Washington's 1917 Beaux Arts building. But blending the new -- fusion cuisine from Jean-Georges Vongerichten; a fashionable rooftop bar; a great spa and gym; Whatever/Whenever service -- with the old -- small guest rooms; no pool; desolate location (come evening) -- has its trade-offs.

Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel

Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This upper-middle-range property is a few blocks from Dupont Circle, one of the city’s most vibrant neighborhoods. With edgy modern design throughout the property and rooms featuring bunk beds, Xboxes, and animal print bathrobes, Hotel Rouge is easily one of the more fun-spirited and family-friendly hotels in D.C. (though couples and business travelers are equally welcome here). Highlights include large, sexy rooms; in-room spa treatments, and nightly wine hours. There are slightly cheaper hotels in the heart of Dupont Circle, but the Rouge delivers more style and perks than most of its competitors. However, visitors interested in seeing Washington's major attractions may want to consider a hotel closer to the National Mall.

Hotel Palomar DC

Hotel Palomar DC Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Fun boutique flair, at a fair price. The 335-room Hotel Palomar has an outdoor pool, a lively bar and restaurant, and a great location near the Metro subway station and the nightlife of Dupont Circle. And being a Kimpton hotel, it has great perks -- free wine hour; free Wi-Fi; pet pampering; great beds; top-notch service.

The Liaison Capitol Hill, an Affinia Hotel

The Liaison Capitol Hill, an Affinia Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

A stylish lobby, an acclaimed regional restaurant, an extensive pillow menu, and a hip rooftop pool and bar (open summers) makes The Liaison hotel (opened October 2008) one of the best hotels in Capitol Hill -- an area that's convenient to the Amtrak station and most major sites, but far from most of D.C.'s dining and nightlife.

The Hotel George

The Hotel George Rating: 3.5 Pearls

A decade ago, this stunning, 139-room Kimpton-managed hotel was Capitol Hill's first hip boutique. Today, it sees big competition from The Liaison -- a new hotel, just around the corner. But the George's airy, urbane lobby, swank guest rooms, well-equipped fitness center, and top-notch French restaurant make it a solid choice.
