We are looking for a hotel in the Alexandria / Arlington area that is in a safe area that is within walking distance to the metro. Typical family vaca to the nation's capital and would like a pool, clean rooms, fitness center and a REALLY decent price.
Any and all ideas are welcome! We are looking to stay between Wed. June 20 to Sun. June 24 and it seems difficult to find bookings in that window. Weekends seem easy, but weekdays are tough and pricey.
Other options are welcome as well if you have had a good experience and the price is right. Not sure how some people came up with the cheap rates they are posting on here, but the rates I'm seeing on Expedia, Orbitz, etc. seem much higher.
What's the trick to a lower rate?
