    IT'S BACK... get notified when Rates Drop!!   03/19/2018

    Our newest development, RateDrop.com will monitor hotel prices for your specific dates and notify you if the Rate Drops!   Monitor hotel prices from both PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE, as well as 'regular' retail hotel rates, based upon the specific criteria you choose.   While the benefits of tracking rates from Priceline and Hotwire are obvious, another use is to purchase a refundable hotel rate using RefundableRates.com and then also set an alert for that specific hotel using RateDrop... if the price drops, simply cancel and re-book at the new lower rate.   Uses your existing BetterBidding.com account so no additional sign-up is needed.   Get started tracking hotel rates now at RateDrop.com

Does anyone have a suggestion on cheap(er) parking lots? What is the normal range of prices?

We don't need regular access to the car. Kstrom

After several days trying I finally succeeded in getting a PL hotel for 2/15-2/17. (I'm posting the PL bid as a separate topic.) The total duration of the stay is 2/13-2/17, all in Dupont Circle region. The DC Metro site that says there will be delays on the metro that weekend, so I think I want to park fairly close to Dupont Circle rather than in the 'burbs and then take the subway into DC.

Within this general area, we are happy to move the car to take advantage of savings.

PS Here's the general DC metro website. It has very easy to use, intuitive interactive features:

Hopefully somebody more familiar with the ins/outs of the city will be able to offer some local advice.

I recently received a $100 parking ticket while in DC. With the blocked off streets, one way streets, turn lanes that seem to appear from nowhere, the "grid and spoke" layout of the streets (many intersections have streets coming together at acute angles), the red light cameras, and soon to come, stop light cameras, driving the streets of DC is a white knuckle experience. I would much rather drive in any part of the Metro NYC area than in DC. Next time I'm taking the metro.
