Need location hotel advice -

My husband and I would like to visit the Vietnam Memorial, WWII Memorial, Holocaust Memorial for starters. This will be our first trip to DC and are thinking of Oct. Is that a good month to go or would you suggest a better timeframe? Am I correct in assuming weekdays might be better than weekends? I have a mobility/leg problem, using a cane, and would appreciate suggestions for hotels that aren't too far from the above, if that is possible? Also, something mid-range for seniors. How far is the Smithsonian? Any ideas or additional pointers? Thanks in advance!

All these memorials are spread apart so there is no one hotel that would be close to all of them. So I would recommend choosing a hotel near a Metro station and utilizing a hop-on hop-off bus that hits the major attractions. Take a look at Tourmobile: http://www.tourmobile.com/ or Old Town Trolley: http://www.historictours.com/washington/

I think October is a great time to visit. By then we're well rid of the horrible summer humidity. Around here fall is one of the nicer times of year.

BTW, Metro is very disabled friendly. See their website for more info: www.wmata.com
