I hope this hasn't been asked in quite this way. I'm not trying to get out of the searching the Forum first--I promise. I haven't been to DC. What neighborhood/s would provide a "centralized" or best location if our itinerary plans are as outlined below? This will be 2nd week of April and cost is an issue so I'll probably Hotwire/Priceline (or whatever else anyone recommends) the room if I know which neighborhood to choose that way I can go for a 4-star choice. We'll have 3 full days for itinerary with the other two days as travel days.
-Campus Tour - Georgetown and GW Univ. not necessarily on same day--unless doable.
-Capitol Tour and walking the monuments, mall etc.
-Possibly visit Adams Morgan section if it's truly the "Greenwich Village" of DC.
Plan to use Metro or walk (as feasible!)
Thanks so much!!!!!
