Do Not Disturb: Romantic Rendezvous Await at D.C. Area Hotels

When you are with the one you love, sometimes all you want to do is stay locked away in your room all day. When it's time for an anniversary or special occasion, many couples want a special unforgettable experience. Many Washington, D.C. area hotels offer romance packages complete with gorgeous rooms and a bevy of amenities that will score major points with your significant other.

Want to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the district? Take a drive to Virginia and check-in to The Inn at Little Washington where you can focus on the one you love with a gorgeous country backdrop. It's location makes for poor cell service so you can put down the phone and focus on your sweetheart.     

If you would rather stay close by, try the Hotel Palomar which offers "The Art of Romance" vacation package including a bottle of sparkling wine, chocolate covered strawberries and a room with an oversized Fuji soaking tub.

When it comes to splurging, luxury hotels are a great choice. Many like the Hay Adams have top-notch spas and restaurants on-site and have gorgeous views of The White House, U.S. Capitol and Washington Monument.   

So whether you are going on your honeymoon, celebrating an important anniversary or are planning a trip 'just because,' the nation's capital has a number of different romantic hotels to chose from for that special occasion.
