Subject: Re: need help with hotels in DC
Actually, I have often managed to find $129, or even $109, sales or promotions at some well-located hotels right in DC -- have even hit $99 a couple of times. Don't give up! Might try some of the Holiday Inns in DC and ask for the Great Rate, or Radisson Barcelo, or some of the hotels near Union Station. The French chain hotel near Dupont Circle that you're trying to think of is perhaps Sofitel? But the property there isn't old.
