We are traveling to DC by car either the 3rd or 4th week of April. I was originally looking for hotels in the Alexandria area near the Metro, but began reading about the high cost of nightly parking. This can certainly add up over a 5 night stay.
We're wondering whether it might be cheaper (both in hotel rates, and parking fees) to stay further out and travel in by train in order to save on the daily parking rate?
Would the cost of the train offset the savings?
