Yet another DC hotel question - would appreciate suggestions

Jump to last reply

I have read many of the threads here about hotels in Washington DC but am still having trouble deciding for a trip in October. Dates are October 20-24. We need parking (not optional, our visit is part of a longer road trip) and we want to be near a metro stop since we won't use the car while there. Would like a place with lots of basic, simple eating options nearby. By that I mean diners, casual restaurants, even chains. We're not foodies, we like to be on the go all day and by evening we just want a simple dinner that doesn't involve reservations or dressing up.

I know that many recommend Dupont Circle or Penn Quarter but everything in those locations seems to be over my budget which is an absolute max of $300 per night.

So far I have booked the Residence Inn on King Street in Alexandria for $264/night with AAA. Parking is $18.

Am I missing some better options that are actually in the city or outside the city but in a better location? Thanks for any suggestions!
