I've stayed here many times for special occasions and anniversaries. The rooms are beautiful, well kept and the lobby level is always so busy. The bar and artwork are a trip to the past.

The Driskill is an elegant old hotel with a ton of history and ghosts. Walk into the woman's bathroom on the second story and you might hear a little girl bouncing her invisible ball or she may even feel naughty enough to knock on your...More

We went to the bar and sat on cozy couches while chatting with other patrons, sipping on red wine, listening to a terrific band. Highly recommend. Beautiful architecture, lovely space, classy but casual.

This a the ultimate political watering hole and very high end. I have been there many times and you seldom do not see someone that you saw in the paper earlier in the week. Truly, it is Washington, DC's Capitol Grill.

We are thoroughly enjoying our stay in this exquisite hotel. It is absolutely quiet in spite of being in the centre of everything. The corridors are also totally quiet. We have heard no one in the halls and no slamming doors. The beds are wonderfully...More
