Foggy Bottom versus Capitol Hill
Hi all– I could use some advice from anyone familiar with Washington DC. My family of five and I are planning a trip to DC in early to mid June– staying three nights before heading to Philadelphia. First time visiting, we're driving our car (we live in NC) but probably taking the Metro most places, the kids are all teenagers. We'll be staying in an AirBnB, and I've narrowed it down to two that we like a lot, which are fairly equal in terms of comfort and style, and within $200 of each other (total price, not per night). That's where I could use some advice! One is in Capitol Hill, on Maryland Avenue just down the street from the Capitol Building– parking would be at Union Station, or another nearby garage, and there are two Metro stations fairly close by. The other is in Foggy Bottom, just west of GWU Hospital– parking is at GWU, with weekend rates (and presumably fewer cars on weekends, too?), and a Metro station very close by. Planning to hit all the major spots– as I said, we plan to use public transportation, but we'd consider driving as needed (Georgetown, for instance). So, what say you? Which location would be more convenient? Thanks!
