A Local’s Guide to Homewood Suites Hotels in Washington, DC

Homewood Suites is a semi upscale hotel brand with three locations near DC metro lines. My suggestion is to choose the Dunn Loring Homewood Suites if you will be driving in or will have a car during your stay. The free parking, free shuttle and incredibly low weekend rates make this location ideal for drivers. For travelers who won’t have a car, then Navy Yard is a great choice with convenient access to the metro and plenty of fun things to do in the neighborhood. Silver Spring was a close call with Navy Yard, and only lost out due to its higher weekday rate and slight inconvenience compared to Navy Yards location.

Why Find a Homewood Suites Near the 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.
