DC Fare: World-Class and Forward Thinking

Old and new and in between, Washington DC's best dining comes in many flavors, cuisines, and price points. Hotel RL is located in Downtown, one of the District's fastest-emerging neighborhoods. Downtown is surrounded by established dining hubs like Logan Square, Georgetown and Dupont Circle, providing easy access to world-class eats, from fine dining to food truck fare. As some of our favorites, we encourage you to try these offsite dining options.
