Flying into Raegan National (DCA) next Tuesday night, and looking for a place to stay for 2 nights. I prefer northern Virginia, as I'll have an appointment in Arlington. Any recommendations?
Also have to get up to Bethesda and Silver Spring Maryland one afternoon, and still deciding between renting a car or taking the Metro. I don't know my way around the city yet, so I'm hoping for suggestions here.
Washington and the District of Columbia is best experienced above ground. While the Metro and taxis will get you where you need to go, I highly recommend renting a car at Reagan/National. Consider staying at the extremely popular Residence Inn Alexandria Old Town on Duke Street or the convenient Courtyard Alexandria on Eisenhower just off the Capital Beltway. There are several routes to Arlington 8 miles northwest and Bethesda 22 miles north; but my absolute favorite is the scenic drive along the Potomac. The vistas of our nation's capital are extraordinary, its an experience not to be missed. Have a great trip.
