Things to Do in Washington D.C.

With The St. Gregory Hotel as your home base, you’ll find a number of fascinating things to do in this historic neighborhood, including a vibrant restaurant and bar scene, groundbreaking cultural institutions, and high-end storefronts. Join locals in the morning around the Dupont Circle fountain with a cup of coffee and a good book, or spend an afternoon perusing The Phillips Collection, considered the nation’s earliest museum of modern art.

Just a short stroll down M Street is charming Georgetown, with cobblestone streets and 18th-century brick row homes. Further along the Potomac, find yourself within walking distance of the nation’s most famous landmarks and attractions, including the National Mall and Capitol Hill. Carve out time during your stay to visit the Lincoln Memorial, picnic along the Reflecting Pool, and explore the brand new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, before returning home to our boutique hotel in Dupont Circle.

If you’re ever struggling to decide what to do next, drop by our front desk or our lobby for inspiration and direction.
