Places to stay in D.C

Postby Ian1 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 4:22 pm

HI,

Any recommendations on affordable accommodation in Washington D.C for 5 nights in January? I’ve been before on tour for a month but we were put in swish apartments.

Many thanks,

The Trump International is about $400 per night or you can splurge and get a suite for $18,000 per night. I guess affordable is relative.

I'll be returning for the third time to the Red Lion Iwo Jima.
But be aware that it's on the other side of the highway from where you GPS directs you.

Do not expect anything other than a clean room with a decent bed and free parking at Red Lion Iwo Jima, but what else do you need? :D
We stay there each year for TUSAB conference at the end of January and the convenience and inexpensive rate is enough to keep me coming back.
And--pay attention to that GPS warning Art gave you!
Bearin' up!
