Kimpton Banneker Hotel

Bridging the best of DC’s storied historic highlights and leafy residential neighborhoods, the Kimpton Banneker Hotel has one of the most enviable addresses in the District.

Located at Scott Circle in the Embassy Row and 16th Street Historic District, The Banneker features curated artwork throughout, along with 3,800 square feet of flexible indoor and alfresco event space, an intimate and relaxed French bistro, and a year-round rooftop bar and open-air deck with iconic views of the Washington Monument and the White House, which sits just six blocks away.

Our guests could stay anywhere in the city, but they are drawn to this home away from home, a playful balance between the city's historic past and modern times.

Over-sized guest rooms offer thoughtful design that breathes comfort and ease into every element of our guest's experience. Find comfort in our Frette linen and bathrobes, locally infused mini-bars and spacious work-space.

The Banneker is home to a new French bistro, Le Sel. Classic at its roots with a modern twist, Le Sel offers an intimate environment with patio seating serving elevated comfort food, prepared with locally sourced ingredients.

Our city center location finds us just under a mile to commute to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

Explore the culture of our neighborhood with a complimentary downloadable Heritage Trail audio-guided tour by Cultural Tourism DC.
