Chances are travelers haven’t been to the nation’s capital since their end-of-the-year, grade school field trip with their teacher and some parents as chaperones. A lot has changed since then, and Marriott International’s Washington, DC area hotels are encouraging travelers to take a fresh new look at an American classic, while saving on weekend travel. Washington, DC was recently named America’s “Coolest” city by Forbes Magazine and called America’s Fittest City for its vast network of cycling and walking paths. Since 2004, Washington, DC’s downtown retail has increased by 250% with over 700,000 sq. feet of retail, including the new luxury retail and restaurant destination, CityCenterDC.
A new restaurant in the District opens every week, almost doubling the amount of restaurants a decade earlier. Now is the perfect time to #StayDC. This Fourth of July holiday, July 3 through July 10, travelers who book on Marriott.com will receive 20% off best available weekend rates for stays July 10 through December 31, 2015. In addition, by booking directly on Marriott.com or Marriott’s mobile app, Marriott Rewards members will receive free in-room Wi-Fi during their stay.
Guests can choose from 21 participating different hotels, across six brands, JW Marriott, Marriott Hotels, Autograph Collection Hotels, Renaissance Hotels, Courtyard, and Residence Inn. Located in the many vibrant neighborhoods of Washington, DC and Arlington, Va., each hotel is uniquely tailored to fit a travelers’ own style, and provides the superior level of accommodations, service and amenities guests come to expect and rely on. Whether kayaking on the Potomac River, visiting the historical museums, running through Rock Creek Park, watching a play at the Kennedy Center, catching a concert at Verizon Center, shopping at many boutiques or discovering the latest new neighborhood restaurant, the Washington, DC area has plenty to offer travelers looking for a quick weekend away.
