In addition to 2 hotels that we are considering (discussion in another thread), we have also found 2 rentals that look like good possibilities. They are a little pricier than the hotels, but are in the city instead of suburbs.
Both are owned by the same person, so I'm just looking for which you think have better meal options in the evenings within walking distance, and if either would be walkable to the National Mall area (if not, which would be more convenient for public transportation).
