The St. Regis Hotel is just a hop, skip and a jump from the White House, and has catered to world leaders the world over since the mid-1920s. It was designed to mimic an Italian Renaissance palace, complete with ornate draperies and antique furnishings. It's been named one of the "Top 200 Hotels in the World" by Condé Nast Traveler, "Top 700 Greatest Hotels" by Travel & Leisure and "Top 50 North American Hotels" by Condé Nast Traveler.
Make sure to check out Ardour, the hotel's signature restaurant, which benefits from the expertise of its resident chef, Alain Ducasse. Then cozy up in one of the 175 guestrooms, where beds come equipped with Egyptian cotton sheets.
