Get to Know Archer

Analiese Kreutzer Features, Talk of Tysons

There’s a new neighbor in the Scotts Run South community, and people want to know, who is Archer? What is he like? Those who know Archer best describe him as an adventurer, storyteller, connoisseur, and humorist. He’s gracious, the consummate host, and his hotel reflects that. 

When you enter this luxury boutique property, you immediately get swept up in Archer’s worldview. It’s got an urban industrial-chic vibe combined with residential comfort. The open floorplan lets you take in the lobby, living room area, and AKB—its classic hotel bar. Archer’s casual elegance, attention to detail, and impeccable service shine through from the lobby to the 178 guest rooms and suites to the seventh-floor penthouse event space.

You get a sense of a world traveler who knows how to make guests comfortable while never losing sight of where they are right now. Local art throughout the hotel depicts Virginia-centric stories such as the famous “Virginia Is for Lovers” advertising campaign, a flowering dogwood mural, and a mural of the peach grove that once occupied the hotel site. Curated amenities and souvenirs provide lasting memories of time spent in Northern Virginia.

Why Archer?

In this up-and-coming community nestled between Tysons and McLean, Archer provides convenient access to shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and businesses. You are steps from the McLean Metro Station for easy access to Tysons and DC. A five-minute walk to Capital One Center brings you to Capital One Hall performing arts center and conference venue, as well as Starr Hill Biergarten, a park, and an amphitheater. Across the street from Archer, a public plaza with restaurants, shops, and luxury residences is slated for completion next year. 

Guests in town for business, vacation, or visits with family and friends will find that Archer’s residentially minded design, amenities, and service make their stay unforgettable. 

“More than ever, travelers and locals are trading up for experiences and making up for lost time—so while guests may choose Archer because it’s a truly gorgeous new boutique hotel, they’ll love that Archer has it chock-full of thoughtful (and complimentary) touches,” said General Manager Pam Domingo. In addition to the amenities you would expect at an upscale hotel, Archer also features an arrival gift, favorite local bedside books (The Little Prince, Misty of Chincoteague), Nespresso coffee makers, and a rubber ducky in all rooms with a bath/soaking tub.

“Guest can choose from one of four guest rooms or suites—each with a unique design palette and luxe details like Frette robes, whimsical slippers, a rotation of curated daily turndown treats, and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel,” said Domingo. “Archer’s hosts go above and beyond to personalize every stay, so whether it is setting the mood with a Crosley record player and a selection of albums from artists with connections to Virginia, a nostalgic Kid-in-Archer gift for our youngest guests, or perks for your pup—every stay at Archer Hotel is singular and special.”

AKB—A Classic Hotel Bar 

AKB serves as an inviting gathering spot for hotel guests, but complimentary self-parking makes it convenient for locals as well. Whether gathering for drinks with friends or conducting business over a meal, AKB sets just the right mood. 

“Locals have already discovered AKB—Archer’s twist on the quintessential hotel bar,” said James Lee, director of food and beverage. “A grand central bar is surrounded by cozy niches and community tables set for group gatherings.” AKB also includes a private dining room and an outdoor patio with a firepit.

“The bar beverage menu is extensive, the food is supremely shareable, and the service is on point. If you’d like a showstopper, try the Hennessy smoke smash or the new Manhattan, both smoldered to perfection. A brick oven churns out savory wood-fired pizza, and house-made rotisserie chicken is a star ingredient on the menu,” said Lee.

Meetings and Events

Consider putting Archer’s signature style and service to work for your next business meeting or event. “Archer’s 17,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor venues and knack for hosting will make long-awaited gatherings even more grand. The seventh-floor penthouse with tumbled red brick walls, crystal chandeliers, built-in bar, and adjacent outdoor terrace is Tysons’ new chic spot,” said Lee.
