We are arriving in Washington DC on the 16th of July witch is my daughters 13th birthday. We are driving from Miami Beach with several stops on our way- Orlando-Cape Canaveral, but because of hotel prices in DC we are not checking in at Park Hyatt before the 16th. So can anyone please give me some advice where to stay for a night or two before this? Not more than 3 hours’ drive, if pool or beach that would be nice. All advice is appreciated, first time driving on the east coast of US.
