    We stayed in the Homewood Suites. Breakfast and weekday evening meal included. Coffee and tea 24/7 in reception. Kitchenette to keep food costs down too.

    Bedroom, living room with convertible bed for offspring. From memory ten minutes walk from the White House, fifteen from Smithsonian area.

    Not technically in DC, but I previously stayed at the Residence Inn Arlington Capital View, which while being a way out of the city is close to the metro, cheap and really nice (I gave it an incredibly rate 5/5 on TripAdvisor).

    That looks like a new one. Possibly better located too.

    We stayed here in August 2017, it was very good for the price - near two metro stops, a CostCo, a shopping centre (with cheap eats!) and a Whole Foods (which we largely avoided...)!

    http://www.americanahotel.com/

    We booked via hotels.com for the reward nights! We paid $328.95 (total) for 5 nights (up front).

    We booked here, then changed the reservation to the Hilton Garden Inn Reagan Airport nearby, for just a little extra per night. Either provides a great area to stay, a little quieter, a few mins' stroll from the Metro.

    I stayed at the Hampton inn in Alexandria.

    http://hamptoninn3.hilton.com/en/hotels/virginia/hampton-inn-alexandria-old-town-king-st-metro-WASALHX/index.html

    Being in Alexandria, it's not the cheapest, but its reasonable (and cheaper than central DC), nice stay, good breakfast and about a block away from the metro. Also next to the free trolley to central Alexandria, restaurants there are amazing.
