The Best Hotel Near the White Flint Metro
The White Flint Metro has one hotel within about 50 feet of the station and that is a Marriott. The rooms are praised as comfortable and clean, and guests seemed to enjoy the hotel restaurant food. But, what we found is that a majority of the time guests are here for business or a conference. It was rare to find tourist who used the hotel for sightseeing. If you are a tourists the drawbacks to staying here are the neighborhood and hotel cost. You’ll have to pick up a tab for parking, internet and breakfast, in addition, beyond the metro there is not much compelling to see or do within walking distance. Altogether a good choice if you can find a great deal and want proximity to I-270

Why: Quick access to I-270 and Metro
About the White Flint Neighborhood
The White Flint metro stop is located in the Maryland suburb of Rockville, north of DC and Bethesda on the red line. The metro is located on the bustling Rockville Pike, containing strip malls and shopping centers, with townhomes and single-family homes as you move farther out from the Pike, and the area is made up of affluent families and professionals.
The area directly around the hotel is made up of generic strip malls with national chain restaurants—think Chili’s and Olive Garden—and national chain shopping—Target, Payless, etc. Taking the metro south to Bethesda will give you many more dining and shopping options. However, if you have a car, there are plenty of attractions in Rockville. La Brasa Latin Cuisine is a favorite of locals, as is Polish deli the Kielbasa Factory. Try to make it to Twin Valley Distillers to try their handcrafted, locally sourced bourbon whiskeys, rums, and vodkas.
Those looking to dive into Maryland history can visit the Montgomery County Historical Society or head to Civic Center Park, where you’ll find Glenview Mansion, the Croydon Creek Nature Center, trails, gardens, and playgrounds. For visitors looking to get active, Rock Creek Park offers miles of trails that lead all the way to Georgetown in DC, and Rockville is also home to Earth Treks Climbing Center and Zipline and Aerial Adventure Parks.
Who is Best for this Location?
This area is popular for business travelers due to a number of conferences held in the area. Otherwise, this area is appropriate for visitors who don’t mind getting off the beaten trail to explore what Rockville has to offer. If you’re looking for convenient attractions and amenities, head south to Bethesda for your stay.
