IHG has five hotel brands near DC metro lines: Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Kimpton Hotels, Even Hotel and Crowne Plaza. Holiday Inn hotels have the most variety and are typically affordable, located throughout the DC area and the suburbs surrounding it.
Holiday Inn Express is cheap and suitable as just a place to sleep. The Kimpton hotels are more expensive and are classified as boutique luxury hotels, with modern aesthetics and amenities at moderate to moderate-high prices. Even Hotel is affordable and has the cheapest weekend rates, and the hotel is geared towards fitness and exercise. Crowne Plaza is about the same as Kimpton hotels with less contemporary aesthetics and slightly cheaper weekend rates.
Of all the InterContinental Hotel Group hotels, our recommendation stands with the Eisenhower Holiday Inn, which combines convenience, location and affordability. For anyone looking to stay in the Downtown DC area wanting a more luxurious experience, take a look at Kimpton’s Hotel Madera. The rates are higher, but you get the offerings of a luxury boutique hotel at a fraction of a typical luxury hotel. The Dupont Circle location is also highly regarded for its restaurants, nightlife and close proximity to typical DC sights.
Why Find an IHG Hotel Near the Metro?
The Metro system in DC is fast, convenient and cheap. In fact, it’s cheaper to take the metro than to drive around, whether you’re in DC for business, vacation or just visiting.
Parking anywhere in the DC area can be expensive and frustrating. Add on the hectic traffic and limited street parking, and you’re looking at spending more time and money than it’s really worth.
The DC metro system can take you anywhere you need to go, usually within a 15 minute ride (30 if you’re out towards the suburbs). Be sure to stay at one of these hotels close to a Metro station and save the hassle.
