Family of 5 - dh, myself, 18yo, 17yo and 11yo. So we need either 2 rooms or a 1br suite
We will be driving in - so parking is an issue.
Places we plan to see: of course the out door monuments; Smithsonian; and Spy Museum. Also might go skating.
Cost is a consideration to an extent, but will pay more to be comfortable. Also, don't mind staying out from DC and taking the Metro in but would prefer an area with character and close by things to do.
