alqjtq2nrjaThe Best Hotel Near the Gallery Place Metro
Staying at any of the three hotels near the Chinatown / Gallery Place Metro means unmatched convenience. The busy hub does cause problems for some guests as each hotel received complaints about street noise issues. In terms of where to look first the Fairfield Inn offers the most competitive rates and in addition was recently remodeled in 2014. Rates on weekdays tend to run around $300, a savings of about $30 to $60 over the Courtyard and Hotel Monaco. Weekend rates will drop dramatically for all three hotels. The most common hang-up with the Fairfield Inn was large crowds at the free breakfast. Valet service is your only option for parking at all three hotels, and this frustrated some guests. The Courtyard has trouble standing out against Hotel Monaco is because of its historical boutique charm and luxury service. The trouble with Monaco seems to be basement rooms, and weddings on the weekends which make the central courtyard lobby loud and crowded. Most travelers should begin by looking into the Fairfield Inn.

Recommended Hotel at Gallery Place: Fairfield Inn
Why:
Affordable rates and newly renovated hotel.

About the Chinatown / Gallery Neighborhood

hotels near gallary place chinatown metro neighborhood washington dc

Chinatown in DC is a very busy urban neighborhood. Populated with businesses, apartment buildings, shopping, and nightlife, Chinatown never shuts down. Being at the crossroads of major metro and bus lines, this area is a big hangout for the city’s teenagers, so it can get quite rowdy. Mostly home to young professionals, this area also includes a few low income housing complexes and a large homeless shelter. While generally a safe neighborhood, visitors will notice a higher amount of panhandling in Chinatown and should be cautious in the area at night.

This area boasts a wide variety of dining options and nightlife. While there aren’t as many Chinese restaurants as you might expect, visit China Boy for a no-frills but authentic and budget-friendly experience. For a casual lunch, stop in at Dangerously Delicious for a slice of hearty, savory pies or treat yourself to a slice of their famous Baltimore Bomb. Try Graffiato for artisanal pizzas and Prosecco on tap. Headed out for the night? Chinatown bars run the spectrum from divey (Iron Horse and Rocket Bar offer cheap beer and bar games) to more sophisticated (try Flight Wine Bar’s international offerings).

DC’s main sporting venue, the Verizon Center, is located in this neighborhood and is the home venue for the Washington Capitals, Wizards, and Mystic. The Verizon Center also hosts major concerts and a variety of other entertainment options throughout the year. Chinatown boasts its share of DC’s museum scene as well. Both the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Portrait Gallery are housed within the old Patent Office building, and the National Building Museum and the International Spy Museum are close by.

Shoppers will find mainstream brands (Urban Outfitters, Loft) on 7th Street, Chinatown’s main drag, or can head to nearby City Center for upscale shops like Kate Spade or Louis Vuitton.

Who is Best for this Location?

Visitors not interested in a noisy, rowdy neighborhood should look elsewhere, but Chinatown is a great option for those attending an event at the Verizon Center or who are looking to party like a local.
