The sleep of the just: cozy mattress made of 100% organic latex; all-natural linens woven in a way to require less electricity when drying.

Bedside treasures.

Stylish and spacious bathroom.

Always good to match the breakfast to your pajamas before heading out to a protest.

The beautiful yoga room set for an end of the day sound meditation.

A lobby that invites you to get stuff done.

American Son restaurant.

Members of Eaton House, the workspace for people with a shared ethos of social impact.

The daily program and the arrival of Fridays For Future to the Capitol.

Ichiro, the Dino, by Mexican artist Marianela Fuentes, loves a good party on the 11th floor roof deck...

... especially if the cocktails are made with ingredients from the hotel own rooftop vegetable garden.

The Radical Library right by the lobby.

Eaton's super hip newstand and happy me on my DC thrift findings.

The dramatic walls painted by artist Erik Thor-Sandberg at the speakeasy-inspired Allegory bar.

The 50-seat professional screening theatre is available for first runs, panel discussions or production crews wanting to work on their pieces.

With the legendary Sheldon Scott: artist and Eaton DC's Director of Culture.

Highs & Lows

  • Effortlessly disruptive: Eaton’s purpose driven mission is present in every detail of its interiors and dynamics, yet it all feels natural and sophisticated.

  • The community-focused, free to attend cultural program. I’ve never seen a hotel be so alive at all times!

  • Content is queen. Guests and locals can enjoy a book from the Radical Library (a feast of environment, wellness, activism, race, gender, art, design, literature and architecture titles); listen to a live broadcast at the hotel’s lobby-level radio station, Eaton Radio; or watch a film in the professional screening room.

  • The room: spacious layout, super comfortable bed, nice selection of books, excellent shower, working space, cozy couch, and a record player.

  • No superfluous toiletries, just soap, shampoo and conditioner made with organic botanical ingredients. Bye bye wasteful single servings, welcome conscious travelers (who bring their own stuff).

  • The restaurant is delicious but it would be great to have more plant-based options.
