I will be traveling to the Wash DC area in early June. The plan is to stay with a friend for the first few days and then move on to a hotel. (Because after 3 days house guests and fish begin to stink! ) Ha!
Coming from the Boston area... might drive.. might come by bus or maybe the train..not sure on that part yet. I AM sure that I will need a hotel room for me and my 11 year daughter for June 7th- June 10th.
Rosslyn has a lower price and is one stop closer on the metro and closer to Key Bridge if we wanted to walk to Georgetown. Bonus:Starbucks is nearby.
Courthouse is a bit more per night but rated higher overall on tripadvisor... plus it has a pool which is nice too. Bonus: Five Guys is nearby.
I plan to get the 7 day short trip pass for the metro so I don't think the one stop difference will make a difference as far as cost. I believe the time difference is only about 2 minutes.
If I can get the Courthouse location for the Rosslyn price... that would be a win.
Am I missing anything important to add to the decision making process?
We are on a very tight budget. I would rather pay closer to $100/night (Rosslyn) than the $152/night (Courthouse) but... also put value on comfort.
