Homeaway Listing 387893vb

This seems like a really good deal at $175 per night with free parking included (I verified that since we would have a rental car for other non-DC parts of the trip).

How is the neighborhood in terms of restaurants available in the evenings and general safety?

We're still trying to decide between a rental like this or staying in the Arlington area at either the Best Western Rosslyn or Americana for the 3 nights we'll be in DC.

The rental is more expensive but if we are close to the Metro and there are decent food options available, we might be able to swing it.

Thanks!

Why don't you rent the car only on the days you will be traveling out of DC? That way you wouldn't feel like you need to limit yourself only to places with free parking, and you wouldn't have to pay for days you won't use the car.

That won't work unfortunately because we are flying in and out of BWI. We need the car at the beginning to head down to the Richmond and Norfolk areas and at the end to get back to the airport. But thanks for the suggestion.

I don't know. You haven't told us where the place is.

Sorry - I included the listing #, but forgot the direct address came from an email by the owner (long day finally booking airfare after 2 weeks of checking rates).

Here it is - 300 Massachusetts Ave NW

Not many meal options right close-by. But you are within walking distance of the Penn Quarter/Chinatown area where there are a lot of restaurants. Or go the other direction for eating in Union Station or the few restaurants in that area.

The listing looks fine, and if the map is right, you are only 3 blocks to all the restaurants etc. near Chinatown/Gallery place metro. There might be better values and more interesting neighborhoods - depending on your exact dates and number of people - but if you've done the legwork and just want it done with, I'd say go for it.
