Because the cost of parking and lodging downtown is quite costly, we recommend staying at the Marriot Courtyard in Chevy Chase, Maryland. It is 2 blocks from the Friendship Heights Metro on the Red Line and a 20-minute metro ride from the Mount Vernon Square Metro, just one stop north on the green line. The Courtyard is walkable to many bars and restaurants.
$129 for King room with pull out couch and $139 for two Queen beds.
Address: 5520 Wisconsin Avenue, Chevy Chase, MD 20815
We have affordable housing options available through Hosteling International, less than a block from the gathering locations at Mount Vernon Triangle. They have various configurations for sharing rooms and accommodating groups. The community kitchen is awesome and all the spaces are very clean and simple, yet comfortable. They offer dorm rooms for $42 a bed per night. Make online reservations now.
