6 DC-area hotels named among the best by TripAdvisor

WASHINGTON — TripAdvisor announced the winners of its annual Travelers’ Choice Awards for hotels Tuesday, and six D.C.-area locations are among the honorees.

The travel site singled out hotels in 10 categories, both in the U.S. and around the world. The area’s lucky six placed in the Top Bargain, Top Value for Money and Top Luxury categories.

The award-winners were determined based on reviews collected over the last year from TripAdvisor travelers worldwide.

11th Top Luxury Hotel in U.S.: The Hay-Adams (D.C.) Guests particularly like this location’s proximity to the White House, Monahan said.
