Cherry blossoms in Washington DCSpring can't come soon enough. Thankfully the National Cherry Blossom Festival-- the festive harbinger of spring-- is right around the corner in Washington D.C. (Events will run from March 27-April 11; the average peak bloom date is April 4.) In past years, we've seen hotels in the nation's capital fete the occasion in a big way with cherry blossom cocktails and scented massages, served with a side of chocolate-covered cherries. Not to mention agreeable room rates with cherry blossom-themed packages. What's on for this year? The prestigious Hay-Adams Hotel, which just opened a state-of-the-art fitness facility, is giving out cherry blossom amenities, free parking, and full American breakfast with the Cherry Blossom Package (priced from $449 per night).

Park Hyatt Washington DCWashington's sleek Park Hyatt– stylishly designed by Tony Chi– is offering a Spring Blossom Package so you can embrace the season of renewal. Priced from $349, the package includes a complimentary upgrade to a Park Deluxe Room, a pot of Cherry Blossom Green Tea from the hotel's rare and vintage selection, a children's surprise backpack filled with sightseeing supplies to explore the cherry blossoms, and a choice of Valet Parking for the length of stay or Continental Breakfast Table for two.

St Regis Washington DCMeanwhile the St. Regis is giving away Jake Raj's Cherry Blossoms book, a cherry blossom delicacy, Parisian Breakfast for two adults (served in the award-winning Adour restaurant), and complimentary overnight valet parking with their Spring Traditions package, priced from $375.
