The 3,000 cherry blossom tress in Washington, D.C. will bloom for the 100th time this year, and hotels around the capital are offering travel deals.

Head over to our Real Deals section for details on a hotel deal at the Liaison Capitol Hill, with rates starting at $199 a night during the festival (the deal includes a picnic lunch and metro passes).

The 10 Kimpton hotels in the D.C. area also have a hotel–only deal that includes a $30 hotel credit and sake tasting, from $229 a night.

If you are looking for a full vacation package to the cherry blossom festival, United Vacations is offering a deal that includes airfare from Chicago (other gateways are available for an additional fee) and three nights hotel for $578 per person, including taxes. The hotel is the Holiday Inn Arlington at Ballston, so you won't be staying in the heart of the capital, but a metro station is just three blocks away.

Looking to really splurge? Some of D.C.'s swankiest hotels are also offering "deals," including the Ritz-Carlton, where the cherry blossom package starts at $929 per night, including dinner and a bike tour of the blossom along the Georgetown Waterfront.

Of course, D.C. isn't the only city where the sakura will bloom. Check out our guide to 10 great cherry blossom festivals around the world, and get in the mood by flipping through our readers' best cherry blossom photos.
