Does anyone know which of the hotels American lists are worth staying at?
Also, any tips for visiting? Where to stay, what to do. I know almost nothing about the area.
I will be driving there from NY.
Thank you.

As one from DC, I can tell you that there aren't many hotels immediately by American. The closest one which I can think of, and granted, I could be wrong, are the Omni Shoreham on Calvert Street (maybe 5 miles south of the school). There are several hotels in Georgetown (the neighborhood, not the school), which is also about 5 miles from the school.

I'm sure that the visitor's centers on one of the school's websites should have more information.

Good luck!

The Omni Shoreham isn't cheap, but as I recall (I lived down there for 3 months last year), it's the closest to American. Despite the cost, it's a really, really nice hotel. I stayed there for a few nights when they hosted a conference I was attending...

theres an embassy suites in friendship heights.  it's one stop away on the metro, or, you could even walk to the school from there if the weather is nice (I've done it several times - about a 20 minute walk).

Does anyone know or recommend what to wear for sitting in on a class? American told me that I had to speak to the professor before the class...I was planning on wearing jeans, but now I'm contemplating wearing something less casual since I'm going to be speaking with the professor, and other people...I am an admitted student though...

i sat in on a class there and i wore jeans and a button down.  the atmosphere is pretty casual so i dont think you need to worry too much.
