Archer's Urban-chic Tysons Hotel
Situated at the foot of the McLean Silver Line Metro Station and just 9 miles northwest of Washington, D.C., Archer Hotel is right at home in Tysons, Virginia’s flourishing metro. The seven-story boutique blends historic urban architecture with modern flair in Scotts Run South — an up-and-coming, walkable neighborhood that’ll soon blossom with retail therapy, eateries, high-rise residences and Fortune 500 headquarters.
Scotts Run South
Scotts Run South is transforming into a walkable, engaging destination in flourishing Tysons, Virginia. Atop the McLean Metro station, the neighborhood is destined to deliver pedestrian-friendly adventures in dining, shopping and exploring, in addition to plenty of residential and corporate offerings. Visitors can expect a host of rich experiences at street level along the pedestrian plazas.
One of the mid-Atlantic’s emerging urban meccas, Tysons — the 12th-largest business district in the U.S., is just 9 miles northwest of the U.S. capital and 15 miles south of Dulles International Airport. It’s on the Washington Metro Silver Line and adjacent to the Capital Beltway — and in close proximity to the Virginia countryside. Tysons Corner Center (the 10th-largest mall in the U.S.) and the upscale Tysons Galleria are both in the city center, and such Fortune 500 powerhouses as Capital One, Freddie Mac and MITRE Corporation are headquartered in Tysons.
Steps from Archer Hotel Tysons is the Metrorail’s McLean Silver Line — less than an hour’s ride to the U.S. capital. Along with visiting the myriad of famed memorials, monuments and museums, snap a selfie in front of the White House at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW or the Albert Einstein Memorial on the grounds of the National Academy of Sciences, or see how money is made at the Bureau of Engraving & Printing. Then fuel up with signature D.C. dishes, such as an original chili half-smoke (authentic or veggie-friendly) at Ben’s Chili Bowl (the original locale on U Street NW opened in 1958 and is still going strong), Chesapeake blue crab coated in Old Bay seasoning at the Municipal Fish Market at The Wharf (the oldest continuously operating open-air fish market in the country) or pupusas stuffed with your favorite filling at El Tamarindo (the city’s longest-standing Salvadoran/Mexican restaurant) on Florida Ave.
