Hotels Near McPherson Metro

1484271751_08_thumbs_upRecommended Hotel: Hilton Garden Inn
Why: Free Wifi, Indoor Pool

There are two hotels within one block of the McPherson Square Metro. These are the closest hotels to the White House. We recommend checking out the Hilton Garden Inn for its free wifi, and indoor pool over the nearby Crowne Plaza Hamilton. Like other downtown hotels parking is a premium. Both of these hotels offer up a good location for business and tourist in downtown Washington, D.C. Before committing to either of these hotels travelers might want to checkout options in DuPont Circle, or hotels in Chinatown, each of these locations offer up better nightlife. As for these two hotels, because weekday rates usually climb over $250 and weekend rates often don’t go below $150 they have trouble standing out relative to other options in the greater D.C. area. If you love these brands either hotel will supply an upscale room with walkability to all DC has to offer.

About McPherson Sq. Area

Who is Best for this Location?

thumbs_up 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.


nieghborhood_vibe_48Neighborhood Vibe: 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.

things_to_do_48Things to Do: 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.


what_to_east_48What to Eat: 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.
