DC is a wonderful place to take the kids! My absolute favorite place to stay is the Embassy Suites. There is one north of the Lincoln Memorial on or near 23rd Street. Here are a few reasons why...you get 2 rooms and with kids the extra space is wonderful! Cook to order breakfast is included for the family with the room (EASY $30 value for a family in DC) AND there is an indoor pool! Doesn't matter what the weather you guys CAN go swimming in your down time! Across the street you can catch the metro and ride to all the sights. There is also a tour bus stop across the street. If you need something extra the hotel staff is great about getting you to the right place.
There is so much to do in DC and SO much of it is FREE. Must sees for your kids & you would be the Air and Space, Holocaust, Arlington, White House, Capitol, oh I can go on. Just see and do as much as you can. Be prepared to park your car and pay a daily parking fee if you do drive into the city.
