Here are the 10 most romantic hotels in D.C., mapped
1. The Donovan
Let's talk about the bathroom first. In the suites at The Donovan, there are cocoon-shaped spiral showers meant to outline a person's body. For a more leisurely soak, there are also deep stand-alone bathtubs with enough room for two people. Now, when it comes to the beds, guests can expect 100% Egyptian cotton 300-count sateen Frette linens. At this point, there's no reason to even leave the room, especially when one can order room service from the hotel’s Zentan Restaurant. [Photo via Wikimedia Commons/AgnosticPreachersKid]
2. Four Seasons Hotel
If you have to go with one suite in the Four Seasons, nab yourself one of the Presidential Suites. They offer oversized tubs and enough living and bedroom space to feel comfortable, but not crowded. For a romantic celebration, the Four Seasons also equips rooms with rose petals on the beds, a welcome bouquet of flowers, and embroidered pillow covers. To top it all off, champagne is also provided along with sweet treats, framed photos of the couple, and the guests' choice of music. Couples can also take a look at the Night Spa package, which offers a myriad of sensual bells and whistles, such as two 80-minute massages and a personalized Michael Mina dining experience.

3. The Jefferson Hotel
This 95-room boutique hotel not only offers a close distance to the Smithsonian and the White House. It also offers three dining destinations: Greenhouse, Quill and Plume. The bathroom of each suite also comes with custom amenities and salts by Red Flower. [Photo via Wikimedia Commons/AgnosticPreachersKid]
4. The Hay-Adams
There's a reason why The Hay-Adams is one of the oldest hotels in Washington, D.C. For those in need of a romantic stay, this hotel offers flowers and champagne as well as a private, night-time sedan tour around the monuments of Washington, D.C. [Photo via Wikimedia Commons/AgnosticPreachersKid]
5. The Graham Georgetown
Sometimes, all you need is a good view to get the romantic vibes going. At the Graham, you can find the seasonal Observatory Rooftop Bar and Lounge, which offers views of the Kennedy Center, the Washington Monument, and the Rosslyn skyline. For a bite to eat, guests can enjoy The Alex outfitted with an "early 20th century 'Steam-Punk' aesthetic." [Photo via Pexels]
6. Park Hyatt
With the Blue Duck Tavern, hotel guests are able to try the same award-winning cuisine that U.S. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle enjoyed during one of their anniversaries. The Park Hyatt also provides amenities like in-room spa services and a sky-lit indoor swimming pool with a whirlpool. [Photo via Samantha]
7. Mandarin Oriental
In the Mandarin Oriental, guests can sit back and relax in the 10,500-square-feet spa. From the 400-room hotel, guests will also have a view of the Tidal Basin, which should help make the romantic getaway even more enjoyable. [Photo via Wikimedia Commons/Jeffrey Totaro]
8. W Washington D.C.
With 317 guest rooms and suites, this hotel has a lot to offer, from a rooftop deck to the Bliss Spa to the steakhouse from celebrity-chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
9. The George
Why go to the spa when the spa can come to you? In Capitol Hill, this boutique hotel provides in-room spa services like massages and facial treatments. In-room dining is also provided from Bistro Bis. [Photo via Wikimedia Commons/IQP]
10. St. Regis Washington D.C.
With 182 guest rooms and suites, the St. Regis provides butler service and dining from Decanter to tourists and residents in search of a staycation. If in search of a particularly sensual guest suite, Curbed suggests looking for the Caroline Astor Suite. This suite provides a terrace as well as amenities like a bottle of champagne, a glass of classic French wine, or treats from the St. Regis Pastry Kitchen.
