Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the heart of Georgetown; 15 minutes from the nearest Metro stop

The Graham Georgetown is located on a charming, bricklined sidestreet just off M in the heart of the buzzing, historic neighborhood of Georgetown. It really doesn't get any more central in Georgetown than this -- some of the city's best shopping and restaurants are at your doorstep -- and within just a few minutes' walk you'll run into the Potomac waterfront, the charming C&O Canal towpath, and Rock Creek Park, all great places for a stroll or a jog. Its location means some street noise at night, however, especially in rooms on lower floors like mine. The most significant downside to Georgetown is that it's not connected to the city's Metro, or subway, system. The nearest Metro stop is a 15-minute walk from the hotel in Foggy Bottom (Foggy Bottom/GWU), although there are a number of bus options to the city, as well as the convenient DC Circulator. The Circulator isn't a tour bus, but its routes stop at all the major cultural and entertainment destinations in the city, and it's only $1 per ride or $3 for an unlimited one-day pass. Though the Monticello is located farther from the White House, the Mall, and other major tourist attractions than other neighborhoods, it's also one of the most charming areas of the city.

  • Located off M Street in the heart of Georgetown, a charming, historic neighborhood along the Potomac River with cobblestone streets, two- and three-story brick rowhouses, and some of the city's best shopping and restaurants
  • Not on the city's Metro system; nearest stop is a 15-minute walk to Foggy Bottom/GWU
  • Convenient DC Circulator, which travels anywhere a visitor would need to go, costs a $1 per ride or $3 for an unlimited one-day pass.
  • 1.3 miles (five to 10-minute drive) to the White House
  • 2 miles (10-minute drive or so) to the center of the Mall (Washington Monument, WW II, etc.)
  • 2.5 miles (10- to 15-minute drive) to the Smithsonian Institution
  • 1.5-miles (a pleasant half-hour walk along the river or a 10-minute drive) to western monuments on the Mall (Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Veterans, Vietnam Veterans, etc.)
  • 15- to 30-minute cab ride ($10 to $15) from Union Station, D.C.'s major train station which services Amtrak, the Metro, and commuter railroads
  • 20- to 30 -minute cab ride ($20 to $25) from Reagan National Airport
  • 45- to 60-minute cab ride ($55 plus) from Dulles International Airport

 Bottom Line
