I plan to spend a couple of days in Washington DC this summer. I would like to do some sightseeing on the hop-on bus, but I also want to stay in a hotel with restaurants (and shops?) nearby. Basically, I'd like a place convenient for sightseeing, but also nice for just strolling and eating out. (I like to just walk around, especially in the early evening)
I'm thinking Georgetown area would be good? But I'm open to any suggestions. Location is more important than price.
