Im just like you, college student looking for a nice hotel but cant afford much. That hotel is pretty pricey.. You know what the catch is though?

 

Go to priceline and name your own price.. I got that hotel above for only 69.00 a night! If you need help let me know...

 

 

When are you going???

Thanks! We are looking at Priceline now. You got a sweet deal, Fish4Life. I hope we can get something like that too.

 

We are planning on going at the end of June. We just want to tour the city, and also catch some Nationals games and even see the Orioles.

 

Lida, I'll look into those hotels also. They look nice.

 

Thanks!

I'd look for something in Alexandria, Springfield, or Arlington, VA. I can't imagine they're as expensive as a hotel in city.

 

 

We first looked at the Metro and it's stops in Gaithersburg, Maryland. I believe it was the George Washington Center Marriott. The hotel had complimentary shuttle to the Metro and the shuttle to the airport wasn't that bad.

 

It depends on how much money you want to burn. We had 4 people to pay for so it can get a little expensive. But, if it's the two of you, then I would still stay somewhere out of the city and look for nice hotels along the Metro route.

Jerk beat me to it :angry:

 

Yeah the Hyatt is probably one of the best selections, though the Mariott there is really nice too.

Great stuff. We'll look into it.

 

My sister used to live in DC when I was in middle school. I used to spend my summers there. I don't remember much about how to get to places by the Metro, even though that was all we used when we would go sight seeing.

We just bought our tickets at Camden Yard, Club Level, section 244 in the first row. The Nationals tickets are causing a bit more problem. They are pretty expensive since it's a new park, and for an equal price to what I paid for those club seats at Camden gets me upper deck outfield seat at Nationals Park. So far it looks like we're going to go for upper deck seats behind home there.

 

Any suggestions at these two parks from those who have visited? Can't miss stuff? Etc.

Ooooh, I wouldn't have ordered the tickets in advance for Camden Yards. Unless you are seeing the Yankees/Red Sox it is extremely easy to get field box seats for far below face value from scalpers. I've gotten seats right behind the dugout for $30-$40 before. However, those seats you ordered are still very nice for the park. You won't be let down.

 

I've gone to three games at the Nats new park (the Marlins series). Everything at that park is ridiculously expensive. Some fairly decent seats can be found in the Right Field Lower Terrace, sections 222-236. Sounds like you guys prefer to sit behind home. I'm more of a baseline guy. Upper deck behind home should suffice. All of the new parks have (like the Nationals park) have more efficient seating so that even the upper deck seats are satisfactory. Camden Yards is over 15 years old now and despite having an abudance of upper deck seats, you get a terrible view of the field. Personally, I think the seating at Camden Yards is just as bad as anything you'll find at Dolphin Stadium.

 

If you need advice on taking the train to Baltimore, let me know.

I got those club seats for 35 bucks each and they are pretty much behind home so I am happy with the price. I don't mind the baselines or behind home, I just don't like straight up outfield seats. I was planning on driving to Baltimore, if the train is better we'll definitely be interested, let me know.

I wouldn't drive in DC if you paid me to. Also, don't take taxis. They run on the zone system and they will rip you off. The Metro will take you anywhere you need to go.

 

 

And getting from the airport to your hotel?

Which airport? National (Reagan)?

 

Metro.

 

 

Yea im visiting there for the 1st time so Im not sure what to expect. Im flying into National... There is a metro (train or bus) close by the airport that will have a stop close to my hotel (Walking distance?)
