Each of the 124 suites in this all-suite hotel is one-bedroom, measures a remarkably spacious 600 to 650 square feet, and includes a sleeper sofa in the separate living room, a fully equipped kitchen (Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s stores are nearby), and trendy but comfortable decor, all at an affordable rate, though that varies by peak/off-peak times. Another plus: a stock-the-fridge program that allows you to order groceries ahead of your stay. I also like Avenue’s prime location (on the cusp of Georgetown and within walking distance of the White House, a Metro stop, and other attractions) and that guests get pool privileges at nearby sister hotel, One Washington Circle (see below). The hotel’s restaurant/bar and terrace lounge, with its comfy furniture, firepit, and green garden wall, is a charming place to enjoy the nightly happy hour, as the city’s 20-somethings often do. Note: Interior rooms at the back of the house overlook the lounge, so during the warm seasons you might want to try for a top-floor room on the 25th Street side.
