A Local’s Guide to Extended Stay Hotels in Washington, DC

Looking for an Extended Stay along the DC metro? We found three in the suburban areas, with our favorite being the Tysons Corner Extended Stay. The combination of activities nearby, convenience, overall cost and amenities puts this location as the best.

Franconia-Springfield is also a decent option, with a lower average price point, but the area itself is limited and the commute can be longer. Largo Extended Stay is another possibility, with a more convenient location to the metro station. But, the hotel is really only helpful for people going to see the Washington Redskins game. Aside from that convenience, sub-par rooms and mild safety concerns near the metro holds this hotel back. All Extended Stays offer free parking, breakfast, wifi and are typically cheaper than other hotels.

Why Find an Extended Stay Near the DC Metro

airbnb near the metro
The Metro system in DC is fast, convenient and cheap. In fact, it’s cheaper to take the metro than to drive around, whether you’re in DC for business, vacation or just visiting.

Parking anywhere in the DC area can be expensive and frustrating. Add on the hectic traffic and limited street parking, and you’re looking at spending more time and money than it’s really worth.

The DC metro system can take you anywhere you need to go, usually within a 15 minute ride (30 if you’re out towards the suburbs). Be sure to stay at one of these hotels close to a Metro station and save the hassle.


#1 Tysons Corner

Extended Stay in Virginia, I-66, I-495

Tysons Corner is a well-known suburban shopping hub in Virginia. With Tyson’s Galleria and Tyson’s Corner Center nearby, there’s tons of activity in the area and place to eat. The metro station is about 8 blocks away from the Extended Stay, warranting a car or shuttle to reach it rather than the semi-long walk. From there, the metro takes 30 minutes to get into Downtown DC on the silver line. Reviews are primarily positive and rates are reasonably cheap, making this location the nicest, safest and more fun Extended Stay near DC.

#2 Franconia

Extended Stay in Virginia, I-95

The Franconia-Springfield area is a typical suburban sprawl at the end of the blue and yellow line in Virginia. Nearby you’ll find the Springfield Town Center mall and Lake Accotink Park. The area isn’t very walkable, so having a car is necessary to get around the immediate vicinity. From the Extended Stay, the metro is 7 blocks away and takes 30-40 minutes to get into Downtown DC. This Extended Stay has typical amenities and cheap rates. But, the location may be suited more for people who have business in the nearby area or Quantico.

#3 Largo Town Center

Extended Stay in MD Suburbs, I-495

Largo is known primarily for the FedEx Field, home of the Washington Redskins and is a suburban neighborhood in Maryland – at the end of the blue and silver line. The area can be quite busy, especially on game-day, where foot traffic and vehicle traffic can be intense. The restaurants in the area are typically national chains. The hotel is a few blocks from the metro station and commuting to Downtown DC takes about 30 minutes. This Extended Stay had an even mix of good and bad reviews, many quoting the poor state of rooms and varied service.
