alqjtq2nrjaThe Best Hotel Near King Street Metro:
On average rates for the Embassy Suites basic rooms are more affordable than the nearby Hampton Inn during the week, but not during the weekend. Families should start by looking into the Embassy Suites for their larger variety of room choices, and all other travelers should start by looking into the Hampton Inn for the lower rates, lower parking fees, and free wifi. A vast majority of the reviews for either hotel are positive. Embassy Suites offers a shuttle into Old Town, the Hampton does not, but the Old Town trolley can do just as good as a job. Each hotel offers free breakfast. The Embassy Suites offers guests free appetizers during a reception hour. One reoccurring complaint about Embassy Suites was the small pool size, and some people don’t like the large open lobby because it creates too much noise. The Hilton can sometimes offer a better rate during the weekend, but no free wifi and parking is $34/day.

Recommended Hotel at King Street / Alexandria: Embassy Suites
Why:
A slight edge due to local area shuttle.

About the Alexandria Neighborhood

hotels near king street neighborhood washington dc

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.

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.

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.

Who is Best for this Location?

The Old Town area is a great location to stay for visitors looking for charm and the opportunity to see some non-traditional DC sites. It is very walkable, well-connected to DC by public transportation, and convenient to Reagan National Airport, so if you are not driving, this location is an ideal one.
