Want a little more legroom on your family vacation to DC?
If there's one thing a family on vacation can use, it's room to spread out. And with our spacious suites, you can do just that. At about the same rate as a typical hotel room, too. Only bigger. In fact, while a typical hotel rooms is about 352 square feet, ours are 600 or more. That's more like an apartment than a hotel room. So forget about squeezing into a small hotel room or staying with friends or relatives. There's a roomy suite waiting for you in the heart of Georgetown. With plenty of legroom.
When you stay at Georgetown Suites, you'll enjoy an apartment-style suite with a fully equipped in-room kitchen, free WiFi, and complimentary continental breakfast - all for the price of a standard hotel room! This means your family will have more legroom, more space for souvenirs, and the rare luxury of personal space on a family trip. This year's family vacation will be unlike any other; there's something different about this place.
Georgetown and the surrounding area offers a variety of fun-filled activities for the kids. There is surely something that will peak their interest.

With plenty of legroom, your family will be rested and ready to explore Washington, DC's most iconic sights and attractions. Washington, DC is full of cultural treasures, and it's hard to see everything in just a few days - especially while traveling with the kids. Take a look at our family travel itineraries to make the most of your time during your summer adventure.
Fuel up for your Georgetown adventure with a great breakfast! If you're not cooking breakfast in your in-suite kitchen or taking advantage of our complimentary breakfast, we recommend heading to Farmers Fishers Bakers for a simple, affordable breakfast with fresh-baked pastries and great coffee.
Once you've fueled up, the day is yours! If you're looking for an active morning on the river, head to the Key Bridge Boathouse for an exciting day of kayaking or paddleboarding. For a more relaxed experience on the Potomac, take an educational and scenic Monument Tour with DC Cruises. If you prefer to stay on land, take a leisurely ride through historic Georgetown on Big Wheels rental bikes!
After a nice morning out, you and the kids deserve some downtime. Relax along Georgetown waterfront park and let the kids splash in the fountain as you take in the scenic riverfront views. When lunchtime strikes, head to Johnny Rockets for burgers and shakes or Pinstripes for pizzas, grilled cheese, bowling, and bocce ball!
Warm summer nights call for something sweet, and Georgetown has no shortage of options. For ice cream, head to the old-school Thomas Sweet or Georgetown Scoops, which is just a 3-minute walk from the hotel. If you're more of a cupcake family, stop by the quirky Baked & Wired or head to M Street's Georgetown cupcakes.
If the family isn't tuckered by now, wind down the evening with a movie at the AMC Loews Georgetown 14, located just 3 blocks from the hotel!
Make sure your phones and camera are charged for this epic day of DC sightseeing! To kick things off, we recommend a tour of the White House (which you'll need to book at least 3 weeks in advance). The self-guided tours are rich with historical information and will set the tone for your day on the National Mall. If you'd like to grab a quick breakfast before your tour, we recommend Wicked Waffle, which is a five-minute walk from America's most iconic home.
The National Mall is a choose your own adventure of historical sites, monuments, and selfie opportunities! It is also an amazing place for a family picnic, which you can prepare in your in-suite kitchen. As you traverse the National Mall, you'll see the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, Martin Luther King Memorial, reflecting pool, and dozens of other iconic sights. Your kids will also have a chance to explore the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden, one of our favorite spots on the National Mall!
After a fun, busy day exploring the National Mall, you and the kids will be more than ready to get off your feet. To keep in line with the day's historical themes, we recommend heading to Old Ebbitt Grill, which has been a favorite dining spot for presidents for over 150 years. Not only does Old Ebbitt have a full children's menu with hot dogs, grilled cheese, sliders, pizza, and PB&Js, they offer upscale saloon fare and a full bar to help you unwind.
If you prefer to end your day on a sweet note, there's no better place than the New York-based Milk Bar. Treat your family to quirky, fun, and inventive treats like birthday cake shakes, salted pretzel cake, cornflake marshmallow cookies, and a variety of homemade soft serve ice creams.
Washington, DC is a treasure trove of world-class museums. The Smithsonian Institution alone has over a dozen museums (including the National Zoo) in the area, which means you'll have plenty of amazing options to suit your family's interests. We also recommend private, kid-friendly museums like the International Spy Museum, which offers interactive exhibits and unique perspectives. Museum days can be long, and we recommend eating a hearty breakfast and heading to your museum of choice early.
Most of the city's museums are located on or near the National Mall, so when lunchtime strikes, your family will have plenty of great options. Carmine's Italian Restaurant, GCDC Grilled Cheese Bar, and Old Ebbitt Grill all offer kid-friendly food to fuel everyone for the remainder of the afternoon. Since the National Air and Space Museum, National Museum of American History, and the rest of the Smithsonian Museums are free, you'll be able to choose a second museum to explore in the afternoon.
If the family is worn out from a day of excitement, education, and inspiration, we recommend heading back to Georgetown for a quick dinner before heading back to your apartment-style suite. Johnny Rockets, Good Stuff Eatery, and Fiola Mare are all great neighborhood options.
