I am looking into booking a short break to Washington and then onto NYC via Amtrak and was looking for some recommendations for a decent hotel in Washington. I will be travelling with my 70 year old mother so we need a room with 2 beds and would like it to be in an area not too far from the main tourist sites. Will be arriving Saturday lunchtime and then getting a train on Monday morning. Am expecting to get a hop on, hop off bus on the Sunday so we can whizz round.......any tips anyone????

Help much appreciated,
