April in Washington, D.C. for family of three

Jump to last reply

I just booked tickets to D.C. arriving around 8 pm at Dulles on Monday, April 14th and departing Sunday, April 20th (Easter) around noon from Dulles.

My husband and I are traveling with our daughter who will be 10 years old.

My SIL and BIL will pick us up at the airport on Monday and we'll stay with them Monday and Tuesday nights and spend time with their family. They live an hour from Dulles.

We're planning on heading back to D.C. on Wednesday afternoon and spending Wed through Sunday in D.C. and mostly touring on our own. I feel like I have a good handle on what we want to see with respect to museums and monuments and the zoo (daughter has never been to a zoo and is very excited).

But I'm wondering where to stay. It looks to me like the Metro is pretty easy to use and a great way to get around D.C. We have a budget of anywhere between $150 to $250 a night. We like Kimpton style hotels or other boutique hotels. I also looked at the Normandy Hotel and it's seems very reasonably priced. Any thoughts on it? We're Kimpton members and I'm hoping for deals to start coming up for D.C.

We like fun walkable neighborhoods with interesting shops and good restaurants and places to sit and grab a glass of champagne or wine and a shirley temple for the 10 year old.

I know we'll be doing a lot of museums and monuments, and I think it would be nice to have kind of a funky neighborhood to also explore, if that makes sense.

I appreciate any thoughts or suggestions you all might have!
