Washington D.C. is a sprawling city filled with national monuments and enough American history to give even the most fanatic history buffs their fill. These hotels listed below are all in the lower threshold for cost, are located in hot spots, and are comfortable with plenty of things to give you entertainment when you’re not exploring the city around you.

The Baron Hotel:

The best way to describe The Baron Hotel is cozy and warm. It’s situated in the Embassy Row area next to the metro, so you’ll be just be a hop, skip, and jump away from the White House. You’re also a lovely 20-minute walk away from Georgetown. Inside you’ll be greeted with traditional decore and a cozy lounge. The Baron Hotel is home to the Bier Baron Tavern, which features a vast selection of international beers, food, and entertainment such as comedy and musical acts.

Hyatt Regency Crystal City:

The Hyatt Regency hotel is said to have “luxury rooms for a fair price,” which can be a nice change from boring rooms that leave more to be desired. You’ll be situated in a good location, within 5 miles of the Smithsonian Museum and The National Mall. Inside, enjoy modern decor while lounging and people watching as you sit above the atrium or head to the Lobbibar for a drink and light meal.

Sheraton Suites Alexandria:

Sheraton Suites are typically a safe bet when it comes to finding a relaxing and enjoyable place to stay while traveling on the short-term. It’s within 3 miles of the Ronald Raegan National Airport and it’s only a few minutes of walking from the King Street district. You’ll find Starbucks Coffee in your room as well as a pull-out sofa if you need a bit of extra sleeping or lounging space. There is also an outdoor eating area to grab a meal and an indoor pool.

Courtyard by Marriott Alexandria Pentagon South:

Perhaps not as cool as the two hotels above, it still holds it weight for comfortable accommodation at a good price. You’ll be next to Fort Ward Park, which features trails, a playground for the kiddies, an arboretum, and even a Civil War Museum. Inside there’s an on-site restraunt for all three squares of the day as well as an indoor pool and workout room.

Extended Stay America – Alexandria – Eisenhower Ave.

Holy hotel names, this is almost pushing it for name length. This hotel is next to the Capital Beltway, which forms a circle around Washington D.C. The neighborhood of Alexandria is known for being friendly as well. You’ll be able to find lots of shopping and food nearby. One of the best aspects if the local walking and biking trails you can explore. If you’re looking to make an extended trip to D.C., this hotel is the best option because it comes fully loaded with its own kitchen.

Washington D.C. is known for being a pricey city, but for what you get with these hotels, they are worth the money.
