If you’re looking for something close to everything in DC including museums, parks and monuments the very tech savvy citizenM Washington DC Capitol hotel is for you. This hotel is by far one of the most technologically advance hotels I’ve ever stayed at. From the moment we checked in I was able to use the app on my phone to control my hotel experience.

Checking In at the citizenM Washington DC Capitol

Checking in at the citizenM in Washington DC was so easy using the hotel kiosk

This was one of the easiest hotel check-ins I’ve ever had. Prior to checking in my citizenM app alerted me when it was time to check in (no waiting around past the check in time). I was able to preselect options on my phone like breakfast, late checkout, pick my preference of a high or lower floor and my view. Once in the hotel lobby I simply selected checking in on a kiosks and scanned my phone. Someone verified my ID and I was then able to create my room key with my phone on the kiosk. That was it! So simple and easy.

On the elevator I scanned my room key to access our floor. Once in the room everything is controlled by the app on your phone including the room temperature, dimming/brightening the lights, turning lights on/off, changing the light color/mood of the room, changing the thermostat, changing the tv channels and even putting up the blinds. The hotel provides a tablet in the room to access these features as well in case you don’t want to use your app or don’t have a smart phone. There are traditional switches as well in the room. I was so impressed with all the features of the citizenM Hotel in Washington. I like that the storage space in the room was like a cruise ship style room with lots of storage.

Planning our trip spontaneously around the blooming cherry trees at the Tidal Basin citizenM Washington DC was in perfect walking distance.

From the citizenM Hotel in Washington we could easily walk to the Washington Monument, Tidal Basin, Thomas Jefferson Monument, WW2 Monument, Martin Luther King Monument and the FDR Monument. The Spy Museum and several other museums are only a street or two over from the hotel and easily walked to. If you don’t want to eat at the hotel restaurant there are plenty of restaurants near by and the citizenM app gives recommendations and maps too. The staff at the hotel are also, so friendly and ready to help in anyway they can.
