Travelling with a small dog.

I plan to be in Washington DC around the 24th April from the UK. Is it easy to travel around the city with a small dog? Also does anyone know of accommodation where I can stay for the duration of one week?

All Kimpton hotels allow pets. There are seven Kimpton hotels in DC.

Your dog will not be allowed in any of the museums, public buildings, shops, restaurants, etc. (An exception may be made for outdoor seating at some restaurants, but not all.) When walking it on the streets or in parks, you will need to carry a plastic bag to pick up all its dog poop.

Unless it is a service dog, it cannot go with you on Metro rail or bus unless it is in a Carrier www.wmata.com/about_metro/faqs.cfm#pets

Not sure about taxis, may depend on the individual driver.

I am fairly certain cabs must take animals in carriers. Thats how my cat and I go to the vet. :)
