My wife and I are driving from Cincinnati to Washington D.C. in mid-August and we're both looking forward to it. While I have many questions my first one is on where to stay. As I mentioned, we are driving a car so I'd like to find a place that has convenient (and hopefully, free) parking. Also, from what I understand, D.C. has a good metro system so I'd like to be able to leave the car behind and not worry about parking hassles. A hotel that is within walking distance to a metro station would be great. Lastly, a location that is safe and has conveniences such as restaurants or markets and such would make the trip ideal. I was hoping to find a room in the 100 to 125 a night range. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
