I don’t think you need a travel agent. I would just call the hotel(s) you’re interested in and ask what is the closest metro stop. Or you can go to http://www.wmata.com/rail/maps/find_station.cfm and plug in the address of the hotel and find the closest metro stop. Good luck!

Nah, don’t bother with a travel agent. Just ask us! 🙂

The DC local board loves tourists!

Seriously – DDW is right.  The DC ladies are chatty and we LOVE our city.  Check out a few of the older DC visit posts, and then come back and ask us anything you want to know!

P.S. If you search, you can find great deals on hotels downtown, especially on weekends.  I would highly recommend staying in the city – it’s so much nicer to be able to walk everywhere and enjoy all the city has to offer rather than having to ride the metro and sit in traffic on the way back to a suburban hotel.  If you don’t want to be in the city – my second choice would be to check out hotels in Old Town Alexandria (VA) – smaller town feel, but still tons to walk to and fabulous restaurants + easy metro access.

Look for hotels around Dupont! There are some great deals to be found 🙂

http://www.adamsinn.com/ is about half a mile from the metro, but totally adorable!

http://www.hilton.com/washington the Washington Hilton Hotel is where my parents stayed when they came to visit us. We found them a promotional rate for $99 a night. The location is amazing!!

ETA: Heres a better link for the specific Hilton I mentioned above^ http://www1.hilton.com/en_US/hi/hotel/DCAWHHH-Washington-Hilton-District-of-Columbia/index.do

The PPs are right – we love to show off our city to tourists! Where exactly are you staying? Are you staying in DC or somewhere in VA or MD? How long are you going to be in the DC area? There is soo much to see and do both in DC and in VA/MD as well. What types of things are you interested in?

Arlington is also a great place to stay. Its like a mini city with a lot of bars/shops/restaurants and easy metro access.
