Hotels Near King Street Metro

1484271751_08_thumbs_upRecommended Hotel: Wyndam
Why: Free Breakfast, Wifi, Lower Parking Rates

There are five hotels near the King Street (Alexandria) Metro station. We recommend checking out the Wyndam if you are a family and driving to DC because the Wyndam offers free parking and has large suite style rooms. We recommend the Hampton Inn for all other travelers because wifi and breakfast are free. We found weekend rates at the Hampton Inn often hover around $225 and drop to average $155 on weekends. The Hampton Inn is only two blocks from the Metro and was also recently refurbished. Parking is $20 per night. For an upscale luxury experience checkout the Kimpton Lorien Hotel. Travelers unwilling to pay the premium price to stay in downtown Alexandria near the King Street Metro should look at either the Holiday Inn or Courtyard near the Eisenhower Metro station.

About Alexandria

Who is Best for this Location?

thumbs_up The King Street station sits on the business end of Alexandria. Within several blocks you’ll find plenty of unique restaurants and main street shopping. One downside to the King Street station is that it sits further away. However, hotels are close by the station. Families and all types of travelers can’t go wrong with Alexandia, but should weigh the pros and cons of staying near the Eisenhower, Braddock or King Street station.

nieghborhood_vibe_48Neighborhood Vibe: The King Street metro stop services Old Town Alexandria. The metro station is several blocks away from the historic downtown and waterfront area of Alexandria. Instead of walking use the free trolley for a lift from the Metro to the historic old town. The area around King Street itself is bustling every day of the week, and is an urban setting.

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.
