Founded on July 16, 1790, Washington DC is unique among American cities because it was established by the Constitution of the United States to serve as the nation’s capital. From its beginning, it has been embroiled in political maneuvering, sectional conflicts and issues of race, national identity, compromise and, of course, power.
After more than 200 years as the nation’s capital, Washington is brimming with a unique history of its own. It has developed as a complex and layered city with multiple personalities. As home to the federal government, it has attracted a diverse mix of government workers, members of Congress from every state, foreign emissaries, lobbyists, petitioners and protestors. While elected and appointed officials come and go giving the city its reputation as a transient community, many of the city’s residents have called Washington home for multiple generations. Their stories give Washington its distinctive character as both a national and local city.
Sophisticated hospitality awaits you at one of the premier hotels near Georgetown and DC. Located just steps from the nation’s capital monuments, the Hyatt House at the new District Wharf in Washington D.C. is the ideal hotel for enjoying the best the city has to offer. The Hyatt House is located next to shops, and restaurants that surround the hotel.
