Anti-Bloomberg rally in DC 1/23/07
Countertop describes the VCDL rally planned for January 23, at the DC Capitol Hilton. Bloomberg and his mayors will be meeting at the hotel, and VCDL plans a protest calling for BATF prosecution of Bloomberg for setting up alleged "straw man" sales. My recommendations for travel are in extended remarks.
You'll never find parking around there on a weekday, at least not on the street, and underground parking is pretty expensive. Metro is the best bet.
Finding a cheap hotel in DC is virtually impossible. In the Virginia suburbs, if you go out to Falls Church there are Holiday Inns, Best Westerns and such that run a under a hundred a night. I can't think of any within walking distance of a Metro stop, so you have to drive to the stop and park. Out in Fairfax there are also a few in that price class. The Breezeway Inn is pretty reasonable. It's also close to the NRA HQ, so you can drop over and visit the National Firearms Museum.
A number of hotels do provide a shuttle service to the metro. I would suggest you check before making your booking.

Everyone should wear an empty holster in recognition/protest of the local DC handgun ban.
