Well, finally made hotel reservations. We will be staying at Courtyard Marriott @Rosslyn. I have reviewed the metro website just still unsure which way to pay for our fares. We would be staying a Friday-Sunday. Most of our destinations are by the Mall. We have a meeting with our Senator, a tour of the National Archives, and Library of Congress. Which would be the best way to purchase. The weekly pass, farecard paper , or any other recomendation. What about the smartrip card? Any help would be very much appreciated.
