Thinking of staying at L'Enfant hotel (yes, I've done all the research and know what we'd be getting for the $100 deal that I've found), but we can't afford to pay their $50 parking fee for 3 nights.
Was thinking of parking at DCA's economy lot, which shows $14 for a 24-hour period, and then taking metro to hotel. Is it permitted to leave a car there for several days? And is it safe (since it will be a rental car)? I know Union Station is another option for $22 each day, but it doesn't seem as easy to get from there to the hotel with luggage and 3 of us on the metro, as it does from DCA.
Any reasons to choose Union Station that I'm not thinking about?
