I wish I had time to read all postings, but in reality I very little computer usage time. Like everyone else, I just want the "quick fix" :) so I'm sending an S.O.S. out to the experts..
My husband and I will be flying in to the DCA airport on Oct.14, renting a car, and spending the 14th and 15th in Washington. (SOMEWHERE??)..We'll then drive to see our grand babies in Roanoke. We will be returning to Washington to stay from Fri/19th.- Mon. 22nd. (SOMEWHERE??) before flying out. We've never been to Washington and so we'd like to work in many of the "biggie" vacation sites in this "sandwich" trip. I'm at a loss for where to begin for the best hotel(s) for our needs. We like comfortable beds and a nice atmosphere. We tend to be 3-4 star patrons, but we do veer away from "old" feeling hotels since we have enough " wear and tear" to go around :) Since my husband has back issues, he may run " out of gas" with walking, so I may be finishing sites "solo". Should we stay a bit farther to get more for our money and then drive in and "park" somewhere with car? or stay closer in so I can hop the mass transit and float in and out of the hotel if he gives out? I'd love specific hotels I could look up based on where you think we'd get the most for our dollar and still be reasonably pleased. Thanks so much in advance!..
