My place is close to Mt Plesant Street, full of great bars like the Raven Grill and Haydees (late night karaoke!). Cabs are very cheap in DC and you can get anuber downtown for $3. There's also I bus line that takes you straight to the White House in 20 minutes. The neighborhood is right next to Rock Creek Park so it's gorgeous and very quiet, so you'll have an escape from the busier parts of the city! My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and big groups.
