Recommended 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.
