Statistically, home is the place you're most likely to fall asleep under a running lawn mower or spontaneously combust while trying to slow dance with a running lawn mower. Find a safe haven with today's Groupon: for $117, you get a one-night stay, a welcome bottle of wine or champagne, breakfast, a nightly wine pairing, and a $25 dinner credit at The Brick Hotel, located on The Circle in Georgetown (a $235 value).
Occupying a restored inn originally built in 1836, The Brick Hotel's quaint lodgings exude antebellum opulence, complete with two on-site taverns and a rooftop garden. Leave modified rocking horses at the door and check into one of the inn's 14 guest rooms, each decorated in its own historically inspired fashion. There, westward expansionists will find a bottle of champagne or wine and fresh fruit to enjoy upon arrival and before redeeming the $25 dining voucher at either of the hotel's two on-site taverns, The Brick Restaurant & Tavern and Moose & Tini's. At dinner, Federalist foodies treat guests to a wine pairing with the chef's choice of hors d'oeuvres. The Brick's dinner menu is punctuated by the Georgetown fried chicken ($16) and fried oysters with hickory-smoked mayo ($11). Every morning, the second-floor parlor hosts complimentary coffee and breakfast, ideal for enjoying while reading up on the news of the day or the news of the past, such as which mustachioed manufacturers recalled their line of petticoats.
Although fully renovated, The Brick Hotel's building boasts a rich history and contains many features left intact from the original structure, including the first-floor staircase, window and door trim, and several drafts of the Monroe Doctrine hastily written on the back of tavern beer coasters.
