Washington DC is a popular city for tourists, but being popular pushes hotel rates higher. We've put together a list of Hotels near the Metro in the Washington DC area, that will help you save money and enjoy your stay even more.
Booking a hotel close to a Metro Station will benefit you in numerous ways. It will be easier to access public transit for getting to the many attractions throughout the city. It also helps you get a better hotel room for your money by staying outside of the more expensive Downtown area while still making it easy to get there. Arlington, Bethsada, Rockville and Silver Spring all have hotels that are less expensive in comparision to similar properties in the Downtown area and they all provide quick access to the Downtown via the Metro.
Our recommended Hotels are hand-picked for quality, value and proximity to one or more stations on the Washington Metro. We only recommend properties with an excellent to exceptional overall rating from verified guests.
Hotels offering the best value soon become known by regular visitors to the city, so book your room well in advance to get the best deal. Last minute bookings rarely save you money in high demand cities and sometimes cost much more.
Tip: Being a major government and business centre, most of the demand for hotels in Washington is during the week. Because of this, you can often get much better rates on the weekend - perfect for a weekend getaway!
