For Artsy Out-of-Town Guests: D.C.’s CitizenM Hotel
Visitors can stay in style at this colorful, cool boutique hotel in NoMa near Union Station.
Opened in the fall of 2022, a short walk from Union Station, the 10-story CitizenM Washington DC NoMa hotel is a study in art, design and efficiency. The colorful and spacious lobby is adorned with works by D.C. artists and has tucked-away booths and comfortable seating areas.
The adjacent bar opens to an interior courtyard. Try CanteenM bar & kitchen’s signature cognac-based sidecar, or the DC old-fashioned, made with honey blossom water and locally sourced whiskey.
Most of the 296 rooms (save the 16 that are ADA compliant) are a snug 150 square feet and designed to maximize space. Each includes a compact desk, a safe, an extra-large king bed with underbed storage, and a tablet that controls the TV, lights, blinds, blackout curtains and LED shower lighting.
Visit the lobby barista for coffee 24 hours a day. An $18.95 breakfast buffet includes unlimited espresso-based drinks. The small hotel gym, open 24/7, includes two Pelotons and two higher-end Woodway treadmills.
Rates begin at $134. Save 6% when you book on the hotel’s website or app and select the mycitizenMrate. While requests can’t be guaranteed, courtyard view rooms are quieter, and outer rooms on higher floors have a view of the greater NoMa area. Note: The hotel has no parking.
