Hello, I am hoping to travel to DC in late March for a Conference at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. I understand that this is Cherry Blossom season and hotel rates will be high. The Conference Center website does not list any nearby hotels. I am trying to find a few places to get rates on. I am hoping to be approved to do this through my company, so I am looking to stay around $200/night. I am a 30s female and will most likely be traveling alone.
1. Can you give me information about the area that the convention center is in. Is it a safe area? Are there places to eat nearby?
2. Can you recommend a hotel and is it even possible to get a rate around $200 or less this time of year?
