Hotdesking, private offices, and more in America's capital

Government work, politics, and consulting have always been a big deal in Washington DC — and that means there are a lot of office buildings in the DC area in addition to the famous monuments. But DC isn't just about giant office buildings and Romanesque classic buildings — there is a thriving and growing scene of freelancers, remote workers, and professionals of all kinds working in every possible industry under the sun.

These professionals are often looking for coworking spaces— like you might be if you've made your way to this article!

While Washington has some notorious traffic problems, you can try and avoid a horrible commute by picking a coworking space to work for the day close to where you live (or wherever you are staying temporarily!)

Here are the top coworking spaces in the Washington DC region for coworking, hotdesking, private office rental, and more.

Industrious

Industrious, like some other coworking brands, actually has multiple locations across the DC area. Their spaces strike a balance between a formal, professional atmosphere and a collaborative, open space in the modern open-plan coworking style.
