Holiday Inn or Marroitt @ Key Bridge

Pros or Cons of each?
Traveling with family of 7. Probably will book three rooms. Flying into National. What about a car. Not sure about taking the Metro from the Airport with all the luggage, so probably will have a rental car (van!).

I know parking is free at the Holiday Inn, costs at the Marriott. Need car for Mt Vernon, Dulles A&S museum.
Holiday Inn is closer to Metro?
What about the pools?
Both come with a breakfast. Any ideas on Breakfast at each?

About a car:

You can get public transportation to MtVernon (bus from Huntington Station) that drops you at the entrance ... see MtVernon website for directions

You can get a shuttle to Dulles A&S from the downtown A&S for $7

So weigh the costs vs a van. We liked HI but that must have been 4 yr ago.

Consider taking cas) to hotels, use Metro for a day, it is part of the adventure. Rent a minivan to tour out of the city or offpeak times. You can park just off Mall at 9:30 precisely M-F. Weekends, earlier the better. You are near enough to have one person pick up van. Compare costs, sometimes it's cheaper to rent, espec. moving 7.
I think Marriott is a bit nicer, but for 7, cost is more impt. it's a slightly longer walk to Metro, as well. If all have energy, walk across Key Bridge into Georgetown and cab back. Or drive; parking is best on the waterfront at foot of Wisconsin. Teens will love it.
