Best hotel close to the Memorial Day Parade? The Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill or across the street, a bit smaller and more charming, The Liaison Capitol Hill. On New Jersey Ave., two blocks from the Mall.
I would suggest getting a place on AirBnB! We were there last week and I wish I would have done this instead of stay in a hotel. The AirBnb's are cheaper than the hotels and much nicer/homier.
