Parking near Dupont Circle

Is there anywhere we can park a car (besides our hotel) somewhat near Dupont Circle for a couple of days for less than an arm and a leg? (It was MUCH cheaper to rent a car for a week than just the 5 days we need it -- so we have to park it for two nights in DC before returning it -- it'll STILL be much cheaper, but would like to not pay $50 a night to park it if possible).

Here is the cheapest 24-hr access parking I know of.

It is south of the Circle right off Connecticut Ave NW.

The other area garages are around the same, to my knowledge, but don't have 24-hr access.

Parking is at a premium in the city and you are going to pay premium prices. Don't expect any street or neighborhood parking.

Will the rental car company not let you drop off early?
If you keep it for the full week, will you need 24 hour access (in and out any time) or just need someplace to leave it undisturbed for 48 hours? If the latter, consider this one, at Conn near T (four blocks north of the Circle and probably a slightly easier walk from your hotel than the DeSales location).
It doesn't quote a 24-hour price, so phone and ask if you can leave it overnight and what that would cost.

Thanks vjp -- that one is only $20 for 24 hours (that's cheap compared to indoor parking in San Francisco).

Thanks all. kayd - I think that's the same one vjp posted. We will NOT need access while we're there. We'll return the car early if they'll let us.

Oh, and DebitNM, we're having dinner one night at Rasika (we're all huge fans of Indian food, and it get great reviews). The other two nights, not sure, but I'll look over the chowhound list! Thanks.

The parking garage on the link Kayd posted is at 1825 Connecticut Ave north of Dupont Circle. The one I posted is south of Dupont Circle. I am talking about the actual round circle thing not the general area.

I don't know which hotel you are staying in, so I don't know which would be closer

We're staying at the Dupont Hotel. Either would be fine. Thanks.

You are at Dupont Hotel (formerly Jury's) directly on the Circle on the north side, no? That's the 1500 block of 19th/N.H. between P and Q.
