Where to stay in Arlington

If your trip to America's capital city doesn't include a big budget for accommodations, consider staying on the other side of the Potomac River in the county of Arlington. You’ll find a good selection of both expensive and economical hotels inside Washington, D.C., proper, but staying in Arlington county removes you from the big crowds and allows you to choose from a range of budget-friendly inns and motels. This area also offers extended-stay apartments, many located near the Ballston neighborhood's metro stop.
