We are planning a trip to DC during our schools' April vacation--specifically we plan to arrive on April 19th and leave on April 23rd. Our family of 4 includes 2 kids, ages 7 and 10, and I'm hoping to spend under $200 a night for a hotel. I've looked at the Americana Hotel based on the reviews from this forum and it definitely seems like a good possible option for us. The one hesitation I have is a lack of a pool--with 2 kids I'm thinking that we'll spend the day touring all the typical attractions but at night we'll most likely head back to the hotel and it would be nice to have a pool. Are we better off with our budget staying outside of DC and finding a hotel with a pool or dealing with the lack of pool for the advantage of being so close to everything?
I should mention that we will be driving down from Massachusetts so it doesn't need to be near an airport. And we plan to use the Metro to get around.Edited: 29 December 2013, 03:27
