The newly renovated Dupont Hotel has pulled off Mad Men chic without so much as a hint of kitsch. The small but comfortable guest rooms are outfitted with heated bathroom floors, flat-screen TVs and surprisingly effective noise-blocking windows. A $52 million renovation and rebranding effort has upgraded all the public areas and rooms. Even a new floor has been added: Level Nine, which is like a hotel within a hotel. Each of Level Nine's contemporary rooms boasts wood floors, high ceilings, balconies that overlook the city, twice-daily housekeeping service, and access to a library-style sitting room with complimentary food, drink, and business amenities. The dark pub in the hotel's lobby has been replaced by a bright restaurant with a South Beach-style outdoor seating area overlooking the circle. Pros:

traffic and noise on Dupont Circle; guest rooms on the small side; limited closet space. www.doylecollection.com/dupont. 295 rooms, 32 suites. In-room: safe, kitchen (some), Internet (some), Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurant, bar, gym, parking. Credit cards accepted. Metro: Dupont Circle.

With Evitts Mountain and Lake Habeeb as a backdrop, this resort is in one of the state's most idyllic spots. The lobby, dining room, and lounge overlook a 243-acre man-made lake.

Rooms, larger than usual, are appointed with Shaker-style furniture, and most have views of a breathtaking ridge of mountains. If traveling with your pet, request a special "V.I.P." room, which greets your furry one with a special treat basket. Suites include a gas fireplace and sitting area. Try a spa treatment, 18 holes on the golf course, a hike along the park's trails, or boating, fishing, and swimming. At this writing, Rocky Gap was planning an expansion to include a gambling area.

Chesapeake Beach, MD
Opened in 2004, this luxury hotel and spa is a key part of the revitalization of the town's tourism business. The public spaces pay homage to the beachfront community's history. A mural in the lobby depicts the old roller coaster that once thrilled vacationers, and framed photographs line the corridors, tracing the town's changes from its Victorian heyday to the present. The whitewashed oak furniture and sand-color walls give the rooms an elegant yet beachy style. The resort was built right on the water's edge, and its suites and deluxe rooms have balconies that seem to hang over the Bay. There are also three dining options, a boardwalk, and a fishing charter company at the hotel's full-service marina. Pros:
a full-service resort with boating, an indoor pool, and spa services; a sandy beach.Cons:
don't expect a "jumping the waves" experience at the beach—the Chesapeake is placid compared to the beach properties on the Atlantic. wwwcbresortspa.com. 72 rooms, 6 suites. In-room: Internet. In-hotel: restaurants, pool, gym, spa, parking. Credit cards accepted. Rate includes: Breakfast.

Maryland's only amusement park, Six Flags America combines a theme park with Hurricane Harbor, a water park. On the "dry" side, high-speed revelers enjoy eight old-fashioned wood or modern steel coasters. "Batwing" puts riders headfirst, face and belly down, with nothing between them and the ground but a safety strap. Children under 48 inches can coast on a minimodel, "drive" an 18-wheeler, and earn their wings flying minijets. On the "wet" side, children of all ages beat the heat whizzing down waterslides and swimming in pools. The five-story Crocodile Cal's (named for Cal Ripkin, legendary star of the Baltimore Orioles) Caribbean Beach House dumps 1,000 gallons of water on unsuspecting passersby every few minutes. When your body has been through enough, sit back for the stage and musical entertainments. www.sixflags.com/America. Admission: $50, kids under 48" $25, kids 2 and under free; parking $15. Hours: Late Apr.-Labor Day, call ahead or check Web site calendar for hrs; Fright Fest, Oct., Fri. 5-10, weekends 1-10.
