Here's an interesting tip on...

Here's an interesting tip on accommodation in the States if you're looking for cheaper hotel/motel prices.
From memory the normal price of our hotel unit was $180 per night. However priceline got for us for an incredibe $90 per night. So between the 4 of us it was quite cheap accommodation for such a nice place.

Here's a good travel tip about accommodation in the States if you''re looking for cheaper hotel prices.
There is a company called 'priceline.com' that will look around for you for the cheapest hotels in the area you want to stay.
It's all internet based so you can do it from home or any computer in the States that has web access.
What you do is nominate an area where you want to stay and a price that suits your budget. Priceline will then email you back with some options.
You do need a valid credit card and also it must be agreed that you must accept an offer that has been emailed to you if it fits your nomination.
They are definately worth checking out. Make sure you read all the fine print though.
What you do is nominate a price

Comfort Inn Tysons Corner: Comfort Inn Tysons Corner



This particular hotel was named Inn of the Year 2001. It is reasonably priced with free breakfast every day. There is also a manager's reception Monday - Thursday evenings that serves food, soda, wine, and beer, all free! The staff here is incredibly professional and helpful. There is a shuttle to the Metro station, to Dulles Airport, and to any local location within a 3 mile radius, including two great malls. I stayed here for three weeks and highly recommend it. It is a Comfort Inn, though, so don't expect the Ritz.

I was fortunate to come to Washington, D.C for work, so I stayed at the Four Seasons in Georgetown. If you have the money, it is a pretty nice place to stay (but I still think a little overpriced for what you get). If you are in Georgetown, it's an area with a young collegiate feel, lots of little places to have drinks and eat.

We always stayed out in Roslyn at the Key Bridge Marriott since we had a rental car and I didn't want to drive in DC!

The Key Bridge is a great location if you don't like the hustle bustle of being right in DC. You'll really like the KBM if you score a room up high with either a view of The Mall or Of Georgetown Univ. The University is surreal when it's lit up at night.
It's only a short walk to the Metro's Roslyn station.

The Hyatt in Arlington also is close to the Roslyn Metro and always has specials but no views.

The past 4 visits, we've stayed at The Metro Marriott which is located at 12th and H st right in DC.
Great hotel, service and location. Plus it's right across the street from the Cap City Brewing Co!

Arlington Hilton: Arlington Hilton



Covered skywalk to Ballston Commons Shopping Mall
The Metro system's Ballston stop is located below the building. You don't have to leave the building to get on the metro!

Crystal City hotels near the airport...easy to hop the Metro. All are good...or Tabbord Inn. Oldest inn in the city. Wonderful fireplaced sitting room for a drink at the end of the day. Great breakfasts in their dining room..garden tables in season. B&B's in DC are great. We've tried several.

While there are many hotels in DC, these can be completely booked, so make reservations when traveling to DC! Do not take the chance or you will find yourself lodging somewhere deep in Virginia (or paying big bucks for a really crappy room). I have been told that there is a nice youth hostel in DC and, as usual, I always recommend hooking up with local students if that is at all feasible. (Then you get to stay for free -- or in exchange for buying some dinners -- and get a personal guide to the city).

For frugal travelers: the interntaional youth hostel in 11K street should be a good choice.
In 1997 when I first visited DC, I stayed there for two nights. I think I paid US$16/night. Not a bad price in DC downtown. Metro 1 or 2 blocks away.
1997-$16

There are hotels everywhere. ...

There are hotels everywhere. It all depends on how much you want to pay and where you want to stay. I notice that a lot of american tourists stay in Old Town, Alexandria, VA, where I live. There is an Embassy Suites and a Hiton right at the metro station (King Street station). Other people stay right in downtown at the Marriot on 14th street and at Metro Center. Dupont circle hotels are the preferred choice in the gay area. There are hotels in Rosslyn also , which is accross the bridge (VA) from Georgetown (DC) and the metro station is Rosslyn.

We stayed at the Great Western in Arlington VA. It was a moderately priced motel. The room was large, had a safe, was clean.comfortable and quiet. We mostly ate at the restaurant at the hotel. I don't quite remember the name (Rosita's?) but the food was great. Generous servings, very friendly efficient staff and very reasonably priced.
We booked on the internet.
It was around US$75

The Key Bridge Marriott: The Key Bridge Marriott



This hotel has a simply fantastic view of the city. From the rooftop restaraunt, you can watch the cars going across Key Bridge, which leads right into Georgetown, the nightlife district. You can see the Washington monument, the Potomac waterfront (where many boats are moored), and the Kennedy Center for the Arts all quite clearly. Directly across the river from the hotel is Georgetown University, and the chapel makes a beautiful backdrop.

I stayed at two different youth hostels. The people were allways nice. Though it didn't feel as comfortable as in the most others I know...

They're making tours to the sights, and other programms what you can attend for free.
But I didn't learned to know any person there (unlike the most other YH)...

We stayed at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington. Rate was $ 79.00 per night, and hotel offered complimentary transportion to Pentagon City Metro station and airport. Request higher floor in main building. Has rooftop pool and garden where you can see planes taking off from Reagan Airport. Views of Arlington Cementary and City of DC.
