International Spy Museum and Ford's Theater are cultural highlights, and travellers looking to shop may want to visit CityCenterDC and Union Station Shopping Center. Check out an event or a game at Capital One Arena, and consider making time for Smithsonian's National Zoo, a top attraction not to be missed.

Very bad experience at the checkout, when something I forgot, very valuable, inside the room, by the time I came back, it was lost. Very disappointed.

5/5 Excellent

The Pod hotel was exceptional for my business stay. The room was clean and perfect in every way don’t expect a lot of room. That’s the point with this type of hotel. It was clean, modern and walking distance to many restaurants and the convention center. I would stay here again.
