If you’re looking for a little inspiration, pack your bags and treat yourself to a little alone time in DC. When it comes to gorgeous views and enthralling people-watching, the W Hotel delivers. Splurge on a room with a view of the White House.
Pamper yourself with a few hours of zen at the hotel’s Bliss Spa, and ponder life’s deeper questions. Nibble on snacks as you spoil yourself with a manicure and a ginger-infused specialty massage.
From the W, it’s a quick walk to the National Museum of Women in the Arts, which celebrates the female contribution to painting, sculpture, and writing.
Pick up a bento box at Teaism. There’s an outpost of this local mini-chain just a few blocks from the hotel. Warm up with ochazuke (rice and green tea soup) with salmon, plum or shrimp. Don’t miss the loose tea blends and salty oat cookies.
