Hotels Near Eisenhower Metro

1484271751_08_thumbs_upRecommended Hotel: Holiday Inn
Why: Closer to the Metro, Often Better Rates

There are two hotels near the Eisenhower Metro station. We recommended the Holiday Inn because it is just one block away from the Metro station and often has lower rates during the week than the Courtyard . You can walk to the Metro from the Courtyard, but not nearly as easy compared to the Holiday Inn. At either hotel there is free parking and wifi, however, neither option offers free breakfast. Regardless, the Holiday Inn was praised by guests for having a nice indoor pool, patio, gym and restaurant. There is shuttle service that can take you into Alexandria if you don’t want to use the Metro to commute to a nearby restaurant. This is a great option for those flying or driving to Washington, DC. Most of all, families can appreciate that kids eat free and there are suite rooms for extra space.

Is Eisenhower (Alexandria) Right for You?

nieghborhood_vibe_48Eisenhower Neighborhood: Sitting just outside Alexandria, the Eisenhower station neighborhood will appeal to travelers who want to sacrifice a little bit of location for savings. Hotels near the station offer free parking. There are still restaurants within walking distance, but the location won’t have the same appeal as other Alexandria stations like Braddock or King Street. The area is still in an urban setting, and restaurants are still within walking distance. Try Montana Ted’s Grill only a block or two away from the station for an excellent bison burger. Most people staying near the Eisenhower are saving on hotels compared to other options in Alexandria. With that being said, Eisenhower can still be considered a part of Alexandria, but you’ll have to walk a little further to all the main attractions.

nieghborhood_vibe_48Neighborhood Vibe: The Eisenhower Avenue metro stop sits on the edge of Alexandria. The Eisenhower neighborhood is in the midst of government buildings and a generic business district. The Eisenhower side is very quiet on weekends; and is home to affluent locals ranging from empty nesters to young professionals and new families. The area is still in an urban setting, and restaurants are still within walking distance. Try Montana Ted’s Grill only a block or two away from the station for an excellent bison burger. Most people staying near the Eisenhower are saving on hotels compared to other options in Alexandria. With that being said, Eisenhower can still be considered a part of Alexandria, but you’ll have to walk a little further to all the main attractions.

things_to_do_48Things to Do: Old Town also offers its share of shopping. While you’ll find a number of national chains, such as Anthropologie or Lululemon, you’re more likely to find locally-owned antiques shops and clothing boutiques. If you can’t find what you’re looking for on King Street, hop a water taxi to Georgetown or across the Potomac to National Harbor. (National Harbor is also a short drive over the Woodrow Wilson Bridge.) The historic district here offers the opportunity for guided or self-guided walking tours of the landmarks, such as the church where George Washington worshiped. The waterfront is also a popular spot to take in the sights—here is also where you’ll find the Torpedo Factory Art Center with rotating displays of local art. And, of course, Mount Vernon, the estate of George Washington, is just south of Old Town, a short drive or a scenic bike ride away. The Mount Vernon Trail, which connects Mount Vernon to DC runs directly through Old Town and is a popular trail for runners, walkers, and bikers.

what_to_east_48What to Eat: Old Town Alexandria offers a wide variety of dining options. If you don’t wish to wander far from your hotel, Joe Theissman’s Restaurant is a casual dining spot with something on offer for everyone, from families with children to anyone wanting to watch the day’s game. If you’re willing to explore the area a bit more, walk down King Street towards the water—or take the free trolley that runs from the metro station to the waterfront—and you’ll find something to satisfy your appetite. For a nicer night out that won’t break the bank, The Majestic and Columbia Firehouse both offer slightly upscale takes on American classics and terrific service. You’ll also find that the bars run the spectrum from divey sports bars to upscale cocktails. For a special night out, make a reservation at PX, a 1920s-style speakeasy offering innovative cocktails.
