We were hoping to take a trip to D. C. over spring vacation, but the hotels are just too expensive at that time, so now we are shooting for August, so we can take in a Red Sox game in Baltimore while we are down there: Here is the question...I am looking on hotwire and they provide the following areas: Dupont Circle Georgetown Kennedy Center The White House South of the Mall Arlington Crystal City so can anyone give me feedback on a good area to stay? We are looking for a safe area, either in or out of the city, but if out, with easy access to the Metro. Also, if we were to stay in Arlington...anyone know how long it takes to get into the city on the Metro? I'd appreiciate any advice. I've always gotten such great advice here in the past!!! Thanks!
