alqjtq2nrjaThe Best Hotel Near the McPherson Sq. Metro
McPherson Square is just blocks from the White House and at the heart of DC business district. Rates at either the Hilton Garden Inn or Crowne Plaza drop quite a bit on weekends. Rates at the Crowne Plaza are going to be cheaper on average during weekdays. Each choice fell victim to numerous street noise complaints. The Crowne is on the cheaper side when it comes to downtown competitors thus making it an excellent first choice for business. Pitfalls with the Crowne Plaza include paying for wifi and no free breakfast. Like all other downtown hotels parking runs nearly $40 a night and is valet. The Hilton offers guests free wifi and has a pool, beyond this difference price and brand preference will drive your decision. Travelers should start by investigating the Crowne Plaza.

Recommended Hotel at McPherson: Crowne Plaza
Why:
A slight edge because rates are usually lower.

About the McPherson Square Neighborhood

hotels near the farragut metro neighborhood description

The area around Farragut and McPherson Squares is mostly a commercial district. With K Street—famous home to Washington lobbyists—as its northern boarder, this area is bustling from 9 to 5, but tends to clear out after dinner and on weekends. Like many of the city’s urban parks, the Squares draw a number of DC’s homeless, but generally you should expect to feel safe walking around.

The 9 to 5 nature of the area can make finding an open coffee shop or lunch spot difficult on weekends, but you’ll have plenty of sit-down options. Farragut Square in particular is a popular weekday spot for food trucks. DC is currently all about Buredo, where you can get a sushi burrito. For dinner, Brassiere Beck serves up European cuisine—think mussels and fries with good Belgian beer—or visit DC landmark the Old Ebbitt Grill, located across the street from the White House.

The McPherson metro stop is on the orange, blue, and silver lines, and is the closest stop to the White House. You’re also in easy walking distance to the rest of the tourist attractions on the National Mall. Other attractions in the area include the newly reopened Renwick Gallery, part of the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Who is the Best for this Location

Being in the heart of DC’s commercial district, this location is ideal for business travelers. For tourists, this area affords easy access to the White House, but you will have a bit of a longer walk to the rest of DC’s attractions. For visitors seeking an area with a strong neighborhood feel, Farragut and McPherson may lack charm.
