This weekend was filled with exploration of a city that I always have such an amazing time in. Oftentimes, D.C. doesn’t get quite the high rep as other East Coast cities, but it has a lot of offer. With it’s melting pot of people, museums and restaurants, D.C. has great energy.

We had a queen sized room in what they called their English basement, which was housed on the first floor. The bed was very comfortable and there was storage underneath the bed for luggage, so you didn’t have to worry about tripping over it. At $110 dollars for the night, this option is not only very affordable, but doesn’t sacrifice comfort.

I thought this was a neat thing to do both from a marketing perspective for them, but also a treat to their guests. Plus who
Hotel Hive is somewhere we would definitely stay again and would recommend to friends/family as well. Have you ever stayed there? What do you think of the micro-hotel trend? I’d love to hear your thoughts so comment down below.
Until next time,
