No Vacancies: Three D.C. "Hotels" and "Inns" In Name Only

While we're spending the week highlighting the finest and most exciting hotels D.C. has to offer, we thought we'd also recognize some honorary hotels. That's to say, they have the word "Inn" or "Hotel" in their name but they don't have a place for you to stay overnight. In fact, they're probably tired of receiving phone calls asking about reservations. So here's a look at D.C.'s "Inns" and "Hotels" that gently kick you out before the night ends.

Name: Rock and Roll Hotel
Address: 1353 H Street NE
It's Not a Hotel?: No, it's a live music venue with an upstairs bar and rooftop.
Are You Sure?: Directly from their FAQ: "IS ROCK & ROLL HOTEL A HOTEL, MOTEL, OR LODGING FACILITY?
Short Answer. No. We are not an actual hotel or motel, and you cannot stay overnight here."

Name: Tune Inn
Address: 331 Pennsylvania Ave SE
It's Not a Hotel?: No, it's a bar & restaurant.
Are You Sure?: Just because a place is featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives doesn't necessarily mean it's exclusively an eatery, but they made sure to put the word "Restaurant" on their storefront twice so as to avoid confusion.

Name: Mason Inn
Address: 2408 Wisconsin Ave NW
It's Not a Hotel?: No, it's a bar.
Are You Sure?: They advertise themselves as the "Glover Park Cathedral of College Football." In short: once it's time to hit the pillow, there's no room at this inn.
