Hitting up Virginia anytime soon? From historic sites in Washington, D.C. all the way to beach side getaways, Virginia has something for each traveler. Read on to get a better idea of the great hotels Virginia offers.
Checkin’ out Alexandria
If you’re visiting Washington DC but don’t want to pay the high pricing in the nation’s capital, staying off site at Crowne Plaza Old Town Alexandria might be the next best option. With room rates averaging $100 per night, where can you go wrong? The hotel is only two miles from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and very close to downtown Washington, D.C. Nearby in Alexandria are historic mansions, shopping, and attractions such as Gadsby’s Tavern Museum. The rooms also include comfortable bedding, internet, and a potential upgrade to views of the Potomac River.
Why not base yourself in Arlington?
A trip to historical Washington DC is pricy, but staying at Holiday Inn National Airport/Crystal City, close to the airport and with average rates of $129 per night, would help make the perfect trip. The hotel is located in Arlington and has many nearby attractions besides those of Washington, D.C., including the beautiful Potomac River and Old Town. The Holiday Inn provides complimentary airport shuttles, Wi-Fi, 32-inch flat screen TVs, and the onsite National Diner where kids eat free. The D.C. Metro, offering easy access into the city, is just six blocks away.
Stay here if visiting the University of Virginia
The Omni name commands high expectations, and this is what guests will find at the Omni Charlottesville Hotel. Rooms are a spacious 325 square feet and include a minibar and a flat-screen television. Guests will enjoy the heated indoor pool, the 24-hour business center and the fitness center. Guests can choose a breakfast package and can dine at the onsite restaurant The Pointe. Nearby attractions include the Downtown Mall for shopping, Monticello, and the University of Virginia. Rates typically start around $169 per night and can vary or rise depending on room category or season.
Ever been to Richmond?
Richmond, VA has a lot going on and the perfect spot for your stay is the Richmond Marriott. Nightly rates are typically around $160, which is a great price for all you get. The hotel offers such amenities as an onsite Starbucks, comfortable bedding, coffeemakers, and premium cable TV. Ask for a high floor room for great views of the city or upgrade to a concierge room to include breakfast (which otherwise costs $17 per day for the buffet). There is a skywalk to the convention center and the hotel is within close distance to the downtown attractions. The onsite sports bar has an outdoor fire pit for guests to enjoy.
Don’t think you can have a beach vacation in Virginia?
There’s not much better than staying right on the beach and the Sheraton Virginia Beach Oceanfront Hotel is a great option. Situated on the boardwalk near Neptune’s Park in Virginia Beach, the hotel has a 24 hour fitness center, and luxury spa tubs, two pools, and a pool-side bar.
