Thinking of travelling for the weekend of Sept 15th 2 nights 15 & 16th.
Primary sight we wish to visit is the National Gallery of Art. A little shopping, nice restaurants nearby.
We are driving and hotel or closeby secure parking would be required.
Some hotels I have seen mentioned in the forums are the Embassy Suites Alexandria-Old Town, Embassy Suites Hotel Washington, D.C. and also the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel. Looking for something in the 150-200 per night range.
