All facts I can't disagree with. (Except standing; that's a iffy
one.) Silver Spring is NOT as nice; but the hotels I am thinking
of are not dives rather Ramada economy flavor, etc. And they are in
the <$100 area. Bethesda won't be.

Rosslyn is closer, on the other lines. It has Quality Inn's
etc.

The big issue may be the Metro stops at midnight.
Your partying schedule may be curtailed.
