alqjtq2nrjaThe Best Hotel Near the Capitol South Metro
There is only one option for a hotel near the Capitol South Metro and that is the boutique Capitol Hill Hotel. The hotel is one block from the Metro and will suit most travelers who want easy access to the Library of Congress, Capitol Building and Supreme Court. Weekday rates hover around $350 which sin’t much better than downtown DC hotels. Travelers will find the nearby Holiday Inn has better rates. Parking is valet based and $40 per night, wifi is free, along with a grab and go breakfast. There is a wine hour every weekday from 5-6PM. A strong majority of the reviews for this hotel are positive, but on occasion we saw complaints about rooms being too hot or cold, as well as nagging wifi issues. Those insisting on staying on Capitol Hill will be fine here, but tourist would be advised to check the Holiday Inn several blocks down before committing to this hotel. A good choice for luxury minded mature couples who want to splurge and stay at a good location for tourism.

Why:
Complementary wine hour appeals to mature, luxury minded travels who demand an excellent location.

About the Capitol South Neighborhood

hotels near capitol south neighborhood washington dc

Capitol South sits at the heart of American politics. It is the metro stop most convenient to the Capitol Building, the Library of Congress, and the Supreme Court; in fact, it lets riders off in the midst of the office buildings that are home to the House of Representatives. Beyond the government buildings, you’ll find a safe neighborhood full of picturesque row houses home to affluent families and young professionals. The character of the neighborhood scene can be dependent on what’s going on in Congress—a late vote and you may find yourself dining next to faces you recognize from CSPAN or Meet the Press.

A pricey neighborhood, Capitol South may not best serve budget-minded travelers. But for those willing to splurge, you’ll be rewarded with being within convenient walking or metro distance to all of the key tourist attractions. This location is also ideal for anyone with business on the Hill.
