Paint the Town

Our location is unparalleled, midway between the White House and the U.S. Capitol, and just off Pennsylvania Avenue. The Lexington at Market Square sits in Penn Quarter, one of DC’s most vibrant and historic neighborhoods. We’re just steps away from many of the city’s most fashionable restaurants, the Smithsonian Museums, numerous private galleries and so much more. The Lexington: the ultimate in an urban address.
