Looking for a hotel that is family-friendly and close to everything without spending a fortune? Our trip to Washington, DC was planned only about two weeks in advance since it was a challenge to adjust our schedules, so we know that it would be an expensive trip, therefore, we are looking for deals and affordable Hotels in Washington DC to minimize the expenses.
