The following may be helpful to pianists visiting DC:

Hotels.com or websites: Tabard Inn; Melrose, Lombardy, State Plaza. Places to stay that you can find near Du Pont Circle East side or West side are good but a longer commute to GWU, but close to Cosmos Club. Du Pont Circle is near RED LINE METRO, so accomodations elsewhere are possible with connections via METRO. FYI: Virginia offers lower taxes on food and accomodations: Rosslyn or near Regan Airport is OK as long as you are close to YELLOW LINE METRO, that stops at GWU Hospital.
