Washington DC, USA
The Darcy may look like a distinctly grown-up hotel, dressed in chic mid-century threads and understated tones, but its playful undercurrent’s revealed in bursts of technicolour. And unique Darcy Daypacks give budding mini-travellers five fun ‘missions’ for exploring DC – whether it’s as a ‘Darcy Detective’ at International Spy Museum, or a stargazer with astronaut ice cream. During the warm months, each young adventurer is offered ice cream sandwiches at check in– and you get to enjoy the complimentary cocktail hour (or in-room tipples from your Cocktail Butler), before Siren lures you in with its seductive maritime-themed décor and seafood platters. The Darcy’s complimentary bikes and scooters (and free WiFi for route-planning) make sightseeing simple, although you’re just 10 minutes’ walk from Dupont Circle and the White House. And you can set yourself up for the day with beignets and coffee at its New Orleans-inspired café, Lil’B
