Washington, DC

Discover Downtown Washington, D.C.

Explore the Nation's Capital From Loews Madison Hotel

Our nation’s capital sits right on the majestic Potomac River and is overflowing with interesting things to do. And since our property is located right downtown, everything is just a short stroll or a Metro ride away. In fact, we’re only five blocks from the White House, close to the Washington Convention Center, and we have views of the iconic Washington Monument from many of our guestrooms. During your stay in Downtown D.C., save time to explore the vast Smithsonian complex with its 19 museums. It’s the place to see everything from Dorothy’s ruby slippers to the Wright Brothers’ first plane to the Hope Diamond. For diamonds of another variety, catch a Washington Nationals or Baltimore Orioles game. Or check out the National Zoo, home to some very famous giant pandas. Ford’s Theatre is still the place to see a live show — and have a killer good time. Of course, a visit in the spring—to see 600 cherry trees during the District’s National Cherry Blossom Festival —is truly breathtaking.

At Loews Madison Hotel, our expert staff can help make your stay even more memorable. Contact the hotel for suggestions of even more things to do on your trip.
