FROG FAMILY REVIEW
InterContinental Washington D.C. - The Wharf*

What we love

  • Waterfront property situated on the Potomac River The Wharf, a revitalized mile-long stretch of restaurants, shops, hotels, parks, piers, docks and marinas, and live music venues.
  • Spa-inspired bathrooms with high-end Agraria bath amenities, plush terry bathrobes and slippers, and soaking tubs in some rooms bring Zen to your private lily pad.
  • The outdoor heated pool and pool deck is the perfect way to wrap up the day while watching boats travel back to their dock.
  • Some rooms have private balconies where you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee.
  • State-of-the-art touch technology keep guests comfortable at the touch of a finger.
  • The 24-hour fitness center enjoys natural light with floor to ceiling windows that overlook the nearby waterfront so you can race the boats passing by on that last leg of cardio.
  • Located less than a mile from the National Mall, so you can leap over to numerous sights, museums, and fun in minutes.

Keep in Mind

  • Only Valet parking is available at the hotel for a daily fee, but there are self-parking garages within a short hop away.
  • One furry family member is welcome to join you on your vacation!

Notable Facts

  • Named #9 in Travel + Leisure’s Top 10 Hotels in Washington D.C. for 2021.

Frog Family Tips

  • Tadpoles will love getting to watch working boats in action as they set sail and return to port. Enjoy the view from the comfort of your room, WAVES Rooftop Deck, Moon Rabbit, or the nearby Benjamin Banneker Park.
  • Hop on the free Southwest Neighborhood Shuttle with a stop located directly behind the hotel on Maine Ave SW to venture out to L’Enfant Plaza or the National Mall.
  • Unwind and relax in the newly opened The Spa at the Wharf situated over the pier and waves of the Potomac River.
  • While there are plenty of delicious food options nearby, be sure to grab a bite at Moon Rabbit for some Vietnamese fusion from the acclaimed in-house chef or savor a meal while enjoying the cool breeze of the river at The Watering Hole.
  • For a little piece of history in your backyard, swing down to the Maine Avenue Fish Market to see this iconic staple of the Wharf area that’s been serving up fine seafood since 1805.

Best For

  • Water-loving frogs that know the historical importance of a good port that will appreciate the close location to Washington D.C.’s national treasures, state-of-the-art amenities, fine dining, and of course, comfortable plush beds.

Energized, get your morning workout in at the on-site fitness center or stroll along the pier and immerse yourself in the waterfront's lively culture. Wander into the famous uniquely-D.C. bookstore Politics and Prose or visit The Municipal Fish Market, the oldest continuously operating open-air fish market in the United States, and grab a bite to enjoy while relaxing in one of the many green spaces nearby.

Board the complimentary Southwest Shuttle to head into the National Mall, prominent 1,000 acres of green space in the heart of Washington D.C. honoring the nation's history and celebrating its democratic values. Find yourself lost in fascination as you drift through the Library of Congress, the National Gallery of Art, and the many Smithsonian Museums. Take a break beside the tranquil Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, looking out to the iconic Washington Monument standing tall on the opposite end.

As evening falls, head back to the hotel for dinner from an award-winning chef. Pop into Moon Rabbit or utilize the Concierge Desk for another local suggestion.
