We're going to go back to Washington for our vacation this year. I'm looking for a hotel like a Holiday Inn, Homewood Suites or the like near a metro station. As in walking distance, in a not scary area. Doesn't have to be in Washington ('cause that's waaaay expensive). Any thoughts? I've done all the normal looking, but I'm clueless as to where the metro actually goes and how long it takes to get places. We don't mind a 30-45 minute ride if necessary. We're trying to go for 12 nights in October/November.
