Logan Circle

The restaurants on 14th Street – the main drag through this quiet neighborhood – are gaining it a well deserved reputation as a foodie’s paradise. From woodfired pizzas to seafood at Pearl Dive Oyster Palace, this neighborhood really has it all when it comes to cuisine. And there’s no shortage of nightlife options either. Grab a rooftop cocktail at Brixton or have a beer and a round of bocce ball at Black Jack. You’ll also find a wide range of cozy boutique shops and a Whole Foods where you can grab fresh ingredients to take back to your kitchen. Adjacent Logan Circle is Dupont Circle, another popular residential neighborhood with a great eclectic dining scene that gets rave reviews and a vibrant nightlife.

Penn Quarter

This neighborhood is known for its assortment of first-rate museums, like the international spy museum. It’s famous for its live theater, its abundance of 19th century architecture and its great dining and nightlife. (Did "live theater" pique your interest? Use discount code NEIGHBORHOOD for 15% off tickets* per guest at world-famous Woolly Mammoth Theatre, located just steps away.) Penn Quarter is also home to the massive Capital One Arena, playground of the big three: NBA, WNBA and NHL, as well as world-class live entertainment. While you’re in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and the United States Navy Memorial Plaza. And don’t forget to drop into Chinatown for a taste of traditional Chinese eats and to marvel at the spectacular Asian inspired arts. Booking a Penn Quarter Stay Alfred puts it all at your doorstep. *15% discount not valid for pay-what-you-will nights, opening nights or special events.

Foggy Bottom

The centrally located Foggy Bottom neighborhood – named for the industrial haze that once blanketed this now-stately area – is one of the oldest neighborhoods in D.C. Foggy Bottom offers easy walking to attractions like the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the infamous Watergate complex, and more. Fast Metro access takes you quickly to the nearby National Mall where you’ll gaze up at the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial and enjoy the nation’s history. The Metro also takes you to great nightlife and other attractions in West End and Georgetown, with easy access to other great neighborhoods like Columbia Heights with its thriving restaurant scene, and Forest Hills with its streets full of gorgeous homes. With live entertainment at venues like DAR Constitution Hall and Lisner auditorium, along with great restaurants and historical landmarks galore, you’ll want to take some time to wander around and explore Foggy Bottom itself. And when you’re ready to call it a day (or night) a Stay Alfred travel apartment makes the perfect home away from home.

Southwest Waterfront

Perfectly located between the picturesque Washington Channel and Nationals Park, the Southwest Waterfront neighborhood is one of D.C.’s most relaxed, yet up-and-coming areas. Looking for fresh seafood? You’ll find it at Maine Avenue Fish Market – the nation’s oldest continuously operating open air fish market.Does live theatre make you feel alive? Arena Stage – the second largest theater complex in D.C., is in the neighborhood. Is live music more your thing? You can catch major acts at The Anthem. Or, you might enjoy spending a day or two at The Wharf, where you can walk along the piers, rent a kayak or paddleboard, and grab a meal or drink at one of its many restaurants.

Navy Yard

The up-and-coming Navy Yard district borders the Anacostia River and is home to several city parks (Summertime? Check out the wading pool and fountains at The Yards Park.) and a plethora of trendy eateries like Osteria Morini (Northern Italian) and Bluejacket (a wonderful brewery and restaurant). Can’t get enough paddleboarding? Or canoeing? The Anacostia River makes a perfect place to do it, and rentals are easy to come by. If you’re not up for travel by paddle, fear not: the neighborhood is exceptionally walkable, and if you’d like to venture further, the Metro will put you in the middle of Chinatown in minutes. Of course, Nationals Park is just steps away, too, making this neighborhood the very definition of a home-run location.
