Make Your Staycation Your Best Vacation feat. One Washington Circle Hotel

One Washington Circle Hotel 6

I am a wholehearted devotee of the staycation, which may come as a surprise to those who know my love for travel. Going to sleep on a plane and waking up in London or France is a thrill, and zipping up to New York for a long weekend is a treat, but travel and vacation are not always compatible; the jet lag and stress of highways and airports can erase your vacation chill. When you need to unravel that knot of tension in your shoulders and get some real, restorative sleep, staycation is the answer!

Recently we spend a relaxing weekend at One Washington Circle Hotel, my third stay with a Modus Property. It has an easy access to all of the sights and attractions of Washington DC. This spacious hotel contains all the amenities of home, including a kitchen or kitchenette in every room. It feels like a home away from home, without the everyday life responsibilities. We were a big fan of the fruit bowl, and detox water in the lobby. It got us refreshed even after a hot and humid summer day in the city.

You can enjoy a cocktail by the outdoor patio or take a dip in the pool during summer months or enjoy a delicious meal at Circle Bistro. I would say it is an ideal location for a Staycation in the city or for people visiting who would like to be centrally located. Keep scrolling down to checkout the pictures from the stay. 

Let’s admit it, we probably have spent more time exploring places far away from home than we have the sites of our own area or region. This is natural. People tend to dismiss local sites or always assume they’ll go there some day. So there are bound to be places around us we haven’t explored or activities we haven’t tried.
  • There is no wasted travel day on the front and end of a vacation -- two vacation days saved!
  • No travel means no physical drain. Let’s admit it, travel is exhausting.
  • You don’t have to spend your vacation with strangers, either on flights or in hotels.
  • If the weather is lousy, who cares? Adjust.
  • Your vacation can’t be cancelled by an airline or other travel situation.

Here's what we did on your staycation: 

Visit to a local museum

We checked out the new exhibit at the Renwick Gallery. It was one on my recent favorite. If you have a moment check it out on the highlights on Instagram under "OWC Hotel"

Checked out the local trails

You know I love my daily workouts. We always use the opportunity to check out the local trails which we can't commute to while living in the suburbs.

Planned our own food fest

We also use the staycation weekends to checkout the new or our favorite D.C. restaurants. Since we don't have to drive an hour or look for parking the joy of a delicious meal is even more.

I was a guest of the One Washington Circle Hotel. All opinions mentioned are my own. 


  1. Such a fun staycation! I need to plan one for my city (Boston) for the fall. Plus - it's so nice to be able to do things in your city and to sleep in a comfy bed afterwards.


  2. I love when there's time to take a little staycation. It's always fun to explore the city and act like a tourist for a day! We forget how many awesome things there are right in our backyard.

  3. Staycations are whats up! Boston is such a fabulous city for all sorts of local adventures and discoveries. I use to travel up there back in my younger days to visit family. Great Post!

  4. I always love doing a staycation! It is a great way to unwind and decompress!

  5. I love staycations! They help you relax with out having to have the hassle of traveling.


  6. I'm with you! After working in the tourism sector, I've seen so many people who need a vacation after their vacation. So I am a big fan of the staycation. How fortunate to have such a beautiful property nearby for yours!

  10. This looks like a great place to relax while in Washington. Perfect since I am planning to visit my friends there.

  11. So fun!! The hotel looks beautiful... I'm also ALL about staycations; it's so nice to get out and explore your own city, or literally use it as an opportunity to do nothing and relax. :)


  12. The food looks delicious as well as the room decor. So relaxed! I am crazy about your look btw, it's so STYLISH yet very comfy

  13. My husband and I love taking staycations on occasion! Looks like you had a great time!

  14. I LOOOOOVE the "plan your own food fest" idea!

  15. I love a good staycation--and I love that bag you're wearing! Where is it from?

  16. Staycations are the best! My husband and I try to have a few of them every year! And I think that blue couch and chair needs to make it's way into my house haha!

  17. I love staycations! I am actually trying to plan one right now. Ooh the food looks so delicious too. I am sure you had a great time.

  18. The pictures says it all. You seem to have enjoyed your staycation

  19. I totally get you girl! I love traveling but sometimes I love staycations even more ;)

  20. Nowadays, I'm getting more excited with staycation than traveling. I totally agree with everything you said the jet lag and stress airports can erase your vacation chill. It's good to have staycations every now and then :)

  21. I'm all about vacations. And sometimes it doesn't even have to be far. Staycations are a great way to explore one's own city.


  22. Staycations are the ultimate form of rest and relaxation to me. I can't wait for another opportunity for something like this in my future. This hotel isn't far from where I live so I might need to do a "barely outside of my city staycation" if that's a thing haha!

  23. These are some great tips to consider. and the hotel looks really awesome to stay in and those foods looks delicious. Hope you had a wonderful time there.

  24. I have never had a staycation but it actually sounds really fun and way more relaxing than going away!
