Great video! Please add some hotels that are pet friendly. I stayed at the Monaco in Alexandria with my cat. Nice hotel! Do you have any suggestions?
You didn’t mention State Plaza Hotel. I know the location is good but do you know if the hotel is nice?
I just stayed in DC last week, and found that the H-street corridor (around 7th and 8th) was very good. I stayed in an air bnb, though not a hotel. The restaurants and stores were very close to where I was staying, and the street car was only a few minutes walk away.
Thanks for all of your videos! They really helped me out with my trip!!
Hi Rob. Me and my friend went to DC last year for the first time. We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Greenbelt, Maryland. The hotel had the best customer service I’ve ever seen. They also had a free Shuttle that would take you to and from the Greenbelt metro station. One time the shuttle wasn’t available when we requested it, and the staff paid for us a taxi so we didn’t have to wait. I’ve never seen a hotel staff go out of their way to help customers like they did. Being outside the city we were able to save a lot of money on the hotel price and were able to do a lot more on our trip. Would definitely recommend Holiday Inn Greenbelt, Maryland to anybody!
What about National Harbor?
This was a great video! I always wondered where to stay when going to DC.
Hello Rob. Excellent videos! I'm planning a family trip to DC and was wandering if you have any recommendations for good Bed&Breakfast places to stay.
Hey Rob, I’m in the process of getting an internship with the Smithsonian this summer. Do you have any tips for interns? Such as housing options and things to do during free time.
I'll also add in some inner Maryland suburbs: Bethesda and Silver Spring. Both are 30 mins and 20 mins away from downtown, respectively too. Both also have pretty interesting downtown districts of their own too 👍
We stayed in Georgetown at the Residence Inn (Marriott). We loved the location, it was close to the Foggy Bottom Metro and there were restaurants and several grocery stores around. We had a room with a small kitchen, free breakfast each day and they did an evening social Mon-Wed that was our dinner. We chose to stay there to help save on Metro expenses but honestly once we figured out how to calculate the metro fees via city mapper I realized that we could have stayed in Arlington and saved ALOT of money. It was only $.25-$.50 more for each person taking the Metro to be in Arlington and the hotels were $100+ per night cheaper. I think they even have a Residence Inn in Arlington so you'd have breakfast/kitchen and possibly the evening social also. The Metro is so fast that it really wouldn't take that long to get into the city (just avoid AM or PM rush hours) and you could save alot. If we go again and there is a big discrepancy in price we will stay in Arlington instead. FYI I think Arlington even has a Costco and some of the hotels I looked into offered a 1 mile radius shuttle so they'd drive you there. Think cheap lunch/dinner.
POD in Chinatown, Loved it!
How is transportation for a person in a wheelchair. Especially interested in subway access.
I use to find a hotel in Washington DC but right now I stay in my cousins apartment in Falls Church,VA, downtown silver spring and Comfort inn in Beltsville because I normally take Wmata subway to Washington with my metrocard with a lot of money and my mom works in the FDA
There is a free trolley in Old Town Alexandria that will take you to and from the King Street Metro Station.
Umm i am traveling right now no joke
I'm in Massachusetts & will be in DC soon, & I sent ur video 2 my niece in Texas bc she & some friends will b going 2 DC & I told them 2 check u out 4 a tour! Ur videos r so informative!!
Excellent video and you are so right, I have found that at different times of the year, sometimes it is easier and cheaper to stay across the river in Crystal City. Keep up the great videos!
What was the hotel that served the Chrystal City metro? I stayed there once
I'll be needing a hotel with parking. Thinking Crystal City since downtown is so difficult to find parking.
A Hilton in laurel an hour away from Washington. Very nice staff, modern and nice. But you have to drive to get to dc though. If you just walk than don’t stay there
This is soooo helpful
Coming to D.C. planned on staying at the Capital Hilton. Curious to hear your feedback?
Any thoughts on staying in Pentagon City…?
I also had good luck in the Friendship Heights area though a bit farther out. Even Bethesda/Rockville though he is right about higher Metro fares but a $100 or more cheaper for a hotel adds up to a lot of subway fares plus there are a lot of nice places to eat etc… in those areas. My biggest tip would be, use the shoulder seasons and check when big conventions were in town. Lots of rooms that can be very reasonable at off times even in desirable times of year. No cherry blossoms, holidays or big conventions.
I like to stay on the south side lol 😂
I am staying at extended stay near Dulles Expo center Next month
tell me what the best hotels that are the closest to the amtrack station
Got good deals for either The Darcy or the Georgetown Suites. Which one do you suggest? We plan to do a bit of everything and like to walk whilst sightseeing. Love your videos, so informative. Thanks
