Taking a look at Expedia, there is very little in the District within your price range for those dates that is a decent place:

Jurys Normandy Inn--$195/night

Savoy Suites Georgetown--$194/night

Windsor Park Hotel--$154/night

As I said, there are some that are cheaper but IMO, they are either not good hotels or not in good areas.

You could consider staying in Rosslyn which is in Arlington, VA and just across the Potomac from Georgetown. In your price range:

Best Western Key Bridge--$149/night

I suggest you read the reviews posted under "hotels". It will help you come to an informed decision.

What about Northern Virginia- Arlington- pop into the VA forum, there are lots of great reviews of hotels and people who keep up w the Expedia prices.

My daughter is a student at American University. We have stayed in different hotels in Arlington and have taken the metro to the Tenleytown Metro Station. American University has a free shuttle bus from the Tenley metro to the University that runs every 15 minutes or so.Call American and ask them to send you a free pass which is something they usually send to prospective students and their families when they are coming for a visit.
