Traveling alone with teenage son in April 2018 to visit DC museums and monuments. Have never been before! Staying 6 nights so looking for good price on hotel ($250 to $300/night) but don’t want bargain basement experience. Love the look of new hotels at the Wharf, and the price is right, but can’t discern how convenient the location is. How long is metro ride? Websites say it’s a 12-minute walk to metro. Is it worth it or should I just bite the bullet and stay at Grand Hyatt in town that’s literally on top of the metro ($400/night-yeesh!)? We’re fine to walk around museums but I don’t want to add another mile each day just to get to metro. Also the Wharf looks like a good area with restaurants but we are not going for nightlife, this is a mom-son trip. Appreciate insight!
