I did it once but not by choice. Our GPS took us through by mistake. We realized we were in the wrong lane and even though I had my turn signal on,no one would let us over. We eventually saw signs for 95 and got out of there but I would not recommend it. Get a campsite and then drop your daughter off.

Driven in DC without trailer, yes. Driven around DC with trailer, quite a few times.

It is a big city full of arrogant impatient drivers. If big city driving does not bother you, by all means drop off the trailer at a CG & go for it. There is an inexpensive decent & relatively quiet CG outside of the beltway in Reston. It is a short drive from the Metro station with parking.

Thank you to everyone for all of your great input and feedback. Many of them gave me a chuckle! I've gotten more details of the actual hotel and it turns out that it's the Sheraton in Old Village Alexandria. So, I went have to venture into downtown, and Alexandria appears to be much less intimidating. I'll still be doing a drive-by and "get out" in front of the hotel instead of parking, but at least it's not nearly as crazy as downtown.

Thanks again for all of you taking the time to respond!
