I am trying to figure out if it is even a good idea to consider the Hampton Inn in Alexandria for our trip. We (my husband and I and our 17 year-old son) will be in the area from 9/11 through 9/14 and our plan is to go to the Nat's game on Friday night and sightsee before that.
I cannot even remotely afford staying in DC, so I am looking further out. I realize I need to ride the Metro into DC. Is there a metro stop even near the area? I am really just looking for any advice you can offer to someone that is traveling from Seattle and has no idea of the area at all. Thanks so much for your guidance and help!
