    went down to the new nationals stadium last weekend. LOVED it. whenever i go down to dc i usually stay at the Radisson Hotel Reagan National Airport. its in crystal city which is 1 stop away from national airport. the hotel itself is like maybe a 3 block walk to the metro? really quiet neighborhood, really nice hotel. it can get expensive but if you search a few different websites and are flexible with your dates you can get a room for like $100 a night.
    oh yeah and they have a rooftop pool with awesome views.

I think the 400 level tickets above where I was sitting were $18, so for that price differential, the 300 level tickets seemed like the best "bang for your buck" seats.

    When I was there I stayed at the Comfort Inn in Landover Hills... not bad if you're looking for a cheap place to stay that's not too far from the stadium. Only about 10 minutes away from the RFK lot where I parked. But obviously where to stay depends a lot on your budget.
    Landover Hills? Wow, you're lucky to still be posting. For those not familiar with the area, I suggest that you don't stay in inner PG County (with a few exceptions) unless you are comfortable in places such as the Bronx, South Chicago, SC LA, Detroit or any other notorious high crime area. I am from PG and am familiar with the area and I wouldn't stay in Landover Hills. When the cast & crew from ABC's Home Makeover show stayed in the area they were mugged.

    Washington is a great area, but like other big cities there are high crime areas.

    The Marriott in Greenbelt (right off I-95) is near the Greenbelt Metro and is on the same line (Green) as Nats Park. The area is relatively safe although I wouldn't wander into the Springhill Lake apartments. I believe the hotel provides a shuttle to the Metro. The area is devoid of activity (office park) but if you are in town for a game it is a nice hotel. Visiting teams and acts performing at the Cap Centre stayed here before the Verizon (MCI) Center was built.

    Yeah, I went to two of their series this year. Agaisnt the Braves in the home opener and vs the Cubs. And the seats that really stood out were the 1 behind 1st base. You'll get a great view, plus, its close to many food stands

    I've watched games from four different sections of this park now, and I also walked around a lot to check things out in different areas. I found the upper levels (300s and above) to be just too high and removed from the field. The Outfield Box (106) was fun, as it was the landing site for a couple HRs that day, and we razzed Willie Harris for losing his hat on every play. The RF Baseline Box (132) certainly wasn't bad, although I didn't quite feel that I was getting my money's worth for a $58 ticket. I might get tickets in the RF Mezzanine (223) again, but this area is only worth the price if you're in the sections nearest first base.
