Washington, D.C. Trip for a family of 6 on a budget

Jump to last reply

Hey! I've been working on a planning a family trip to Washington and haven't had much luck finding hotels within our budget. I know that it is cheaper to stay in the suburbs and travel into the city so that's what the plan is, unless I find something cheaper with D.C which I know could potentially be a joke.

Details: Family of 6 (4 kids ranging from 9-21), staying two nights (Monday-Wednesday) of this upcoming week (I know short notice, but weren't too sure of plans due to some other factors), budget: $200 per night/$400 for stay including taxes and fees

Accommodation: Wouldn't mind a bed and breakfast or anything of that sort, would like a kitchen/kitchenette (save on money by making a couple meals), prefer a suite with some amount of separation from parents, kids don't mind sharing a sofa bed/using a cot or blow up mattress, would prefer free/inexpensive parking (for 1 car)


So basically does anyone have any suggestions/advice/words of wisdom?

Thank you so much!

*I've looked at other threads but I couldn't find any with a larger family on a similar budget, but if anyone could direct me to one it would be much appreciated*
