History

Located in Washington D.C., on fashionable Connecticut Avenue near Dupont Circle, The Churchill has been a destination for many of history’s household names since its inception in 1906. But its historic legacy isn’t the only reason The Churchill stands out amongst literally hundreds of D.C. hotel options. Over the years, The Churchill has always preserved the ambiance of a luxury pre-war apartment on one of Washington’s most exclusive addresses: Connecticut Avenue.

The Churchill has recently undergone a round of restorations to rejuvenate its antique charm while keeping up-to-date with modern society’s continuously advancing technologies. With the hotel’s combined historic and modern feel, guests are able to stay comfortably while experiencing a touch of the past.

When this Beaux Arts building opened as luxury apartments in 1906, it boasted “every convenience of a high-grade, modern hotel, in conjunction with the restful quietude and exclusiveness of a private residence.” Over 100 years have passed, and time has proven this claim to be accurate. The Churchill quickly became one of Washington’s most distinguished addresses and was home to a long list of diplomats, dignitaries, and politicians.

The Churchill, a member of Historic Hotels of America since 2009, dates back to 1906.
