Inauguration day is approaching, and we’re ready to hit Washington, D.C. in style! When searching rooms in the area, we looked for comfort, convenience, and any special extras that might entice us. Luckily we found two great hotels — one luxury and one value — with all our of must-haves. The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown is located in the charming historic neighborhood, close to transportatio, as well as great shopping and dining. The “ritzy” King Room accommodations include up-to-date technologies and refined decor, all for about $830 per night during Inauguration weekend. But nearby, the Embassy Row Hotel offers similar classic elegance (if not quite as upscale), a great historic location near Dupont Circle, and a lively lobby bar. The value option even offers its own spacious King Room with modern amenities, at only $340 per night. Which is which? Check out the rooms each hotel offers, take a guess in the comments section below, and then find the answer after the jump!
Option 1 is the budget-friendly Embassy Row Hotel and Option 2 is the luxe Ritz-Carlton Georgetown! They may both have a similar understated charm and spacious living areas, but the Embassy Row King Room is available for Obama’s second Inauguration weekend at a fraction of the Ritz King Room price that same weekend.
