Suggestions for a girls weekend getaway near DC?

Jump to last reply

Hi there! I'm looking for suggestions for a hotel in the DC area for a girls weekend getaway. It's a gift for my mom, who lives in the MD suburbs but hasn't explored much outside the major DC monuments. I'd like to find a nice hotel in the city to take her for a fun weekend "away" (couldn't swing the airfare, so we're stuck to driving distance locations) I'd like to find something in the $150-$200/night price range, convenient to good shopping, metro and maybe a good spa. She's used to staying in the Motel 6 type places, so something more upscale would thrill her! I've heard Georgetown has good for shopping, but I'd love some suggestions for other fun locations as well. We'll have a car, though I'd prefer to drive as little as possible in the DC traffic. I'm a little familiar with the area, but haven't lived there in 10+ years, so I'd love some advice for where to stay, what to do and some neat places to eat.
Thanks so much!!
Kriskate
