Neighborhoods and Hotel Deals South of D.C. for Location & Savings

Step 1: Check Eisenhower Hotel Deals

About Eisenhower Hotel & Deals

Eisenhower Sitting just outside Alexandria, the Eisenhower station neighborhood will appeal to travelers who want to sacrifice a little bit of location for savings. Hotels near the station offer free parking. There are still restaurants within walking distance, but the location won’t have the same appeal as other Alexandria stations like Braddock or King Street. The area is still in an urban setting, and restaurants are still within walking distance. Try Montana Ted’s Grill only a block or two away from the station for an excellent bison burger. Most people staying near the Eisenhower are saving on hotels compared to other options in Alexandria. With that being said, Eisenhower can still be considered a part of Alexandria, but you’ll have to walk a little further to all the main attractions.

Step 2: Check Braddock Hotel Deals

About Braddock Hotels & Neighborhood

Braddock The Braddock station is location Alexandria. All the hotels are a five block walk to the station. On the upside the hotels are also close to most of the attractions in Alexandria. Alexandria is home to many unique restaurants, riverfront parks, and will be appreciated for its easy access to downtown DC, DCA, and Mt. Vernon. It is hard for any tourist to go wrong with Alexandria. For a nicer night out that won’t break the bank, The Majestic and Columbia Firehouse both offer slightly upscale takes on American classics and terrific service. You’ll also find that the bars run the spectrum from divey sports bars to upscale cocktails. Old Town also offers its share of shopping. While you’ll find a number of national chains, such as Anthropologie or Lululemon, you’re more likely to find locally-owned antiques shops and clothing boutiques.

Step 3: Check King Street Hotels

About King Street Hotels & Neighborhood

Kings Street The King Street station sits on the business end of Alexandria. Within several blocks you’ll find plenty of unique restaurants and main street shopping. One downside to the King Street station is that it sits further away from the waterfront and main attractions. The metro station is several blocks away from the historic downtown and waterfront area of Alexandria. Instead of walking use the free trolley for a lift from the Metro to the historic old town. The area around King Street itself is bustling every day of the week, and is an urban setting. Families and all types of travelers can’t go wrong with Alexandria.
