More than likely it will cost something now, but you'll be able to find 2 consecutive spots. Don't try the Metro garages (multi story parking); the clearance is spec'ed at 6'8". Going downtown will be a nightmare unless you've called ahead and verified bus parking. DC government is a nightmare to try to work with. I've paid the same ticket 3 times before. Last I looked they still had rotary phones on the desk.
DC is special and difficult. I live there; trust me.
