As for specific hotels in the vicinity:
-Hotel Monaco is literally caddy-corner (southwest) to the Verizon Center, and is $159 a night. Really, really nice hotel with a great restaurant (Poste).
-A couple blocks west, you've got a generic option in the Courtyard for $99 a night.
-A block or two north of the Courtyard is the Grand Hyatt, for $99.
-A block west of that is the Marriott at Metro Center, for $99.
-The Fairfield Inn is on the opposite side of Verizon from Hotel Monaco, and is $109.
There's a bunch more clustered 3-4 blocks north of VC, at the Convention Center for comparable prices, but they're a little further from the sites. There's also a cluster 7 blocks or so west (on 14th street) near the White House, but they're typically more expensive and further from VC. Of the ones of listed, Monaco is the nicest and has the best location, and Fairfield has the worst location (but its still fine).
Thanks so much.
