Largest Jewish community is in Silver Spring, which is a suburb of Washington. For tourists, best place to stay is in downtown Silver Spring, which has a metro stop and a nearby  shul in Woodside Park within walking distance.

The shul website also has alot of helpful tourist information

Char Bar is open with a Kosher LíPesach menu. The gorgeous Ritz (down the block) and St. Regis are available for 50K points (certs).

The shul (Kesher Israel) does not ask for proof of vaccination.

I was researching similar, best I found was Residence Inn Arlington Courthouse walkable to Chabad of Alexandria-Arlington, I think 12 minutes.  It didn't work out for other reasons, so I don't know how Shabbos-friendly it is.
I should add that I was looking for a kitchenette.

Looking to stay at the Hyatt House by the Wharf, as it has everything Iím looking for. Outdoor pool, kitchen in rooms, good location.

Just wondering if anyone has experience or know about it, especially if itís Shabbat friendly. There seem to be a few weird things like the fact that the entrance is on the second floor of the outdoor area. Also apparently elevators can only be used by touching some options on a large touch screen that apparently doesnít work too well.
