alqjtq2nrjaThe Best Hotel Near the Union Station Metro
Union Station is an expensive place to stay on the weekdays and travelers who get annoyed with internet fees, parking fees, and no complimentary breakfast should avoid each of the four hotels near Union Station. As for finding the best deal, on average the Washington Court Hotel offered the lowest rates. Guests praised this hotel for its staff, large rooms and in room Keurig. Pet lovers should note this hotel has a special floor for pets and doesn’t charge any extra fees for four legged friends. Some rooms include a view of the Capitol. Drawbacks from online reviews mainly focused on the dated look of the hotel. As for the other three hotels within walking distance to the Union Station Metro the Liason is usually the next most affordable option. Guests often were excited about the rooftop pool at the Liason, but found it small and unwelcoming when the hotel had events. Cabanas take up a lot of space and cost extra. The Liason is a boutique style hotel which appealed to some travelers. The best way to avoid $45/night parking fees is to park in the Union Station lot nearby which is on average $20 less per night. The next two options are Hotel George, remarkable for its restaurant, and the Hyatt.

Recommended Hotel at Union Station: Washington Court Hotel
Why:
Pet friendly, least expensive near station, and large rooms.

About the Union Station Neighborhood

hotels near union station neighborhood washington dc

Union Station is a neighborhood adjacent to Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. To the west, the neighborhood is made up of businesses and government buildings, as well as being home to Georgetown University’s law school. To the east, you’ll find traditional DC rowhomes. This is an area that has been rapidly revitalizing, and the more residential areas are fairly safe. However, the area in which the hotels are located is in close proximity to one of the city’s biggest homeless shelters. That, and the bustling nature of the train station that gives the area its name makes this neighborhood one in which visitors should exercise caution.

Within Union Station itself, visitors will find multiple food courts offering fast food and fast casual options, as well as a limited sit-down options. The dining options closest to the hotels are at either end of the spectrum—the Dubliner and Kelly’s Irish Times are popular casual pubs while at the other end are Art and Soul, the restaurant within the Liaison by Chef Art Smith, once personal chef to Oprah, and Charlie Palmer’s Steak. The nearby H Street Corridor offers a larger variety of both dining and nightlife options.

The main attraction of this area is its proximity to the Capitol and the Senate office buildings. From Union Station, you are also within walking distance to the Library of Congress and the Supreme Court. Within the neighborhood itself, visit the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum, lesser-known but also less crowded than its sister museums on the National Mall. Union Station also offers some shopping, mostly small storefronts of national chains such as Ann Taylor and Victoria’s Secret.

Who is Best for this Location?

The area immediately surrounding the hotels in Union Station is pretty lackluster. This area is ideal for those wanting close proximity to the Senate side of the Capitol. Otherwise, this area’s virtues lie in the transportation hub that is Union Station—here you have access to the metro, MARC trains, and Amtrak.
