Hotels Near Eisenhower Metro

1484271751_08_thumbs_upRecommended Hotel: Holiday Inn
Why: Avg. Better Rates, Closer to Metro, Free Parking

Eisenhower Metro station. We recommended the Holiday Inn because it is closer to the Metro, just one block away, and on average has lower rates during weekdays. On the weekends either hotel may have the better nightly rate. Parking and wifi are provided at either hotel for free. Guests at both the Courtyard and Holiday Inn often had complaints that breakfast was not provided with their stay. Guests who want free parking, breakfast and wifi should look into hotels near the Franconia Metro a few stops south. Regardless, both the Courtyard and Holiday Inn have been complemented by a vast majority of reviews for being an affordable place to stay near Alexandria with free parking. Because the Holiday Inn has better proximity to the Metro and on average better rates over Courtyard we suggest looking there first.

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.
