Ideally located near Ronald Reagan National Airport and the Pentagon, the Sheraton National Hotel provides business and leisure travelers with easy access to the many attractions of our nation's capital.
Free Airport Transportation (Limited)
Despite the name, this place does not cater only to students, so do not feel as though it is restricting in this way.
The cost is $10 for a night on the floor, or $20 for a bed in a dorm. They supply covers and insist that no sleeping bags are used. This includes a basic breakfast, making fantastic value for money. However, this also makes for fantastic over-crowding, so be sure to book a place or arrive early. Check-In is between 0800-2300.
Set in the Adams Morgan District this place could be considered Bohemian. This area is very artistic with street performers, bars, music and everything else going on all around you all the time. Also, there is a 24/7 diner situated just beneath it, where you can order whatever, whenever.
What is more is that you will blend into a big group of people from all kinds of origins. Whilst I was there for 3 night, I encountered Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Slovenian, Spanish, French, Canadian, American (!), Greek, plus a there were a few others I did not recognise...
Other Facilities Include.
Public Internet Access
Private Rooms Available
Information - What to see & do. How to get there. Useful telephone numbers.
No Curfew - Own Key
The closest cg to DC; has its own bus stop, so it's easy to get to an underground station and from there downtown. It's also easy to take the car to the underground.
Nicely landscaped; pool and all the facilities you'd expect; helpful staff. If you are on a campmobil tour, this is the best place to stay for Washington.
This is conveniatly Located near the King Street Metro Station for DC. The Station can take you directly into DC, and to places like the Arlington Cemenary and Regan National Airport. Its located near Alexandria's Old Town District, a very histoical Area
Its low priced, located away from the hustle and bustle of DC, near Metro, has Pool and near a great number of Resteraunts.
Do not be fooled by the hotels older exterior.
The Suites are huge, and if you are staying somewhere for a week, necessary.
Housekeeping was great at cleaning up after us (we tipped them every day).
When Staying in Dc ways to save $$ is important.
The AC was excellent and appreciated in August. Slept like a baby.
Remember this is not a 4 star hotel, but very convenient to DC via 395.
AC, SPACE in a 1 bedroom 2Qs.
2 tvs. clean kitchen. Continental breakfast to take to your room.(saves $$)
Pool is OK, there was a lifeguard on duty.
When staying anywhere for a long time I suggest a kitchenette set up if you can find one. There where many in Alexandria, and I cant tell you how the others are, they are so much easier. We even ordered pizza, thank you internet menus! (brought a pizza Phone # w/us).
Refridgerator, for sodas, H2O, lite beer (it is vacation). Microwave for leftovers from dinner.
The Breakfast was Bagels and muffins etc. but there was juice, coffee, and yogurt (yeah!).
You could bring it up to sleeping teenagers who wont get out of bed until you bring them food.
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.
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)...
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.
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
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.

fabulous hospitality, we stayed in the lighthouse suite. we couldnt have asked for better service or a better location close to everything. the dupont circle area was wonderful. we walked to all the major attractions. you can also take the metro from the dupont circle station.
go to the roof and view the whole city. we stayed in one of the turret rooms, it was lovely!
We stayed what we initally thought was the travel lodge only when we got there it was a Howard Johnsons in Cheverly, MD. I DON"T recommend it. Loud, cold, no room service and its not in the greatest area.
