Kids' Program

While staying at The Darcy, one of the best DC family hotels in Scott Circle, kids can check out a complimentary backpack that contains everything they need for a lively caper in Washington, DC (with adult supervision). Both fun and educational, our Darcy Daypacks are designed to capture the imagination and hold the attention of children as they get to know the best of the city. At the end of the day, with their “mission” completed, kids return the backpack for a special surprise.


With Darcy Daypacks in five themes, your child is sure to find one that appeals:
