hotel with a view

This may be an impossible request but here goes...we are going to DC in March (family of 4, 2 boys ages 9 and 6). We want to stay near a metro stop, pay under $250 per night, have a suite space where we can put the boys in another room AND have a view of the city.

Any suggestions?

As a back up, we are willing to forgo the view and then our thoughts are bang for the buck in Crystal City.

This isn't really a "view" town.

I think there is a nice view from some place in either Rosslyn or Crystal City, but I cant' remember the name of the hotel

The W probably offers some views of the White House but I don't know if there are any suites there.

The view is definitely the restraining point there. There aren't many hotels in the city with great views, and many of the ones with great views (the W, the Hay Adams) will likely be north of $250/night. I would check out the various Embassy Suites in town. Families in search of suites seem to like them. Run a search in this forum and you'll see many threads on the upsides/downsides of the Embassy Suites around town.

Many of the rooms at the Omni Shoreham have lovely views over Rock Creek Park. It is also very conveniently located close to the Metro and just a couple of stops from all the sights.

You could have a great view at the Hay-Adams, the new "W" hotel (Where the Hotel Washington used to be), The Willard or the J.W. Mariott. None of those places would be anywhere near in your price range.

I agree with the advice about Embassy Suites. I love that chain for families.

I think the Hotel Palomar, in Rosslyn in Arlington has good views of DC since it is across the river. It is also convenient to a Metro station, the Rosslyn Metro.

Crystal City will probably give you better views than staying in the city. You can be in the city and at the major sites as fast or faster from Crystal City than many of the DC hotels. I would check out he Residence Inn Pentagon City.

My personal favorite view would be from the Sheraton National in Arlington.
