Washington, D.C. — Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel

Few things are more patriotic than spending the 4th of July holiday in the nation's capital. Washington, D.C.'s fireworks and Independence Day celebrations are visible from the Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel, which is located downtown but slightly separated from all of the busyness of 14th Street. The warm and relaxing getaway complete with sophisticated library decor on the interior and a sunny roof deck on the exterior still magically has a few rooms left for the mid-week holiday, so there's still time to celebrate America's 242nd birthday in the capital.

Nantucket — The White Elephant

By some matter of fate, Nantucket’s best hotel still has a few openings for the biggest holiday weekend of the summer. It’s also conveniently located right in town so you don’t necessarily need a car to get everywhere. Few places feel more appropriate for 4th of July than Nantucket—spend your days sipping a crisp glass of wine at Galley Beach or a beer at Cisco Brewers, eating super fresh lobster rolls at Millie’s, and soaking up the sun at the beach. If you’re in the mood, the parade in town is always a real crowd pleaser.

New York — The Chatwal Hotel

For those who wish to opt for a metropolitan travel destination on Independence Day, the Chatwal Hotel in midtown Manhattan is steps away from all that New York has to offer. From exclusive guided tours through the Morgan Library & Museum to catered picnics in Central Park, those who stay in one of the 14 themed specialty suites will find themselves on various excursions throughout New York City. Built in 1905, the classic architecture and design of each suite take inspiration from early 20th century travel, and was restored in 2010 by Thierry Despont. Spacious terraces with great views of Independence Day fireworks and private bars distinguish this landmark hotel from the rest.

Portland — The Press Hotel

If good eats (seafood in particular) are a priority for you during the holiday, look no further than Portland, Maine, which has plenty in the way of fresh oysters and Maine-style lobster rolls (try Scales). The new Press Hotel is an excellent option for lodging and still has rooms available. Housed in the building that was once home to the Press Herald, the space plays homage to its newsroom roots while still maintain a very cool, modern feel. Those looking for an official 4th of July celebration should book tickets in advance for the annual Stars and Stripes Spectacular, here.

Cape Cod — Chatham Bars Inn

What’s a better place to be for the 4th of July than Cape Cod? Massachusetts, after all, was the first-ever state to recognize Independence Day as a holiday.
