Smile Thanks for the photos and advice

If I'm willing to look outside Washington proper but still want convenient access to the mall/museums (ie metro or dc circulator) and a pool, what's my best bang for my star-bucks (haha just realized what that said - caffeine anyone)? Based on everything I've read in this and other threads, I'm looking at the Westin Arlington Gateway, Westin Alexandria - but I was also considering the one in Georgetown. We're a measly gold so is there any chance of club upgrades at any of these hotels (breakfast saves with a preteen)?

Does anyone know if any of the hotels other than the W have a view of the fireworks from a patio or public area? - this would sway me toward that resort, with or without a pool. We don't want to brave the mall and crowds so we're planning to see fireworks either from our hotel or the Arlington side of the river.

Thanks in advance for your help and feedback.
