Which one is a better location? Is is difficult to park the car for the day and take the metro from Dunn Loring or Vienna? Thanks!

Neither is in a bad location in terms of safety, but neither is in a good location in terms of things to do. Getting to the Metro will probably be easier from the one in Merrifield. But during the week, the Metro lots can fill early in the morning with commuter traffic, so you'd need to get there early. On the weekends parking is less of a problem, but Metro frequently has track work on weekends which can add an hour or more to your trip into the city. I know in your other thread you said you don't want to stay in the city, but staying outside the Beltway for a tourist visit to D.C. just isn't advisable because of the extra travel time and frustrations (not to mention Metro fares) it introduces into your trip.
