Hotels Near Metro Center Station

1484271751_08_thumbs_upRecommended Hotel: Hotel Harrington
Why: More Affordable, Parking ½ Cost of Nearby Hotels

There are many hotels in downtown Washington, DC and three are within three blocks of Metro Center. We recommend checking out the Harrington Hotel for the affordable rates and affordable parking. The drawback is that the hotel décor is older, and guests frequently comment about this. On weekdays your likely to find the Harrington has rates $50 or more below the nearby Hyatt and Marriott. Wifi is free, but breakfast is not provided at the Harrington, nor Hyatt or Marriott. Travelers who want to impress a loved one or stay at a more upscale hotel should prioritize the Marriott, or Hyatt. Often in DC weekend rates are much lower, so weekend visitors can skip over Harington. As for travelers with modest hotel expectations we like the Harington as a first choice for staying near Metro Center.

nieghborhood_vibe_48Neighborhood Vibe: Metro Center is a business district at the heart of Washington, DC. At the junction of almost all of the metro lines—Red, Orange, Blue, and Silver, it is also a major transportation hub in the city. The National Mall is going to be a 15 to 20 minute walk or quick ride on the Orange line. Foot traffic dies down on weekends as you won’t find many who actually live in this area, though upscale condos have started going in at various spots in this neighborhood, such as City Center. While Metro Center is generally a safe neighborhood, you will find panhandlers on the corners and should take care when walking around at night.
