E Certificates Expiring & Wash DC Hotel Recommendations

So two questions in one....I am traveling to Washington DC in early December to provide a bone marrow donation at Georgetown Medical Center.  My trip is covered, but I am wanting to extend my stay one day (hotel at my expense), so I can at least do a little sight seeing while I am there.  We are Gold, and we have two E-certs for cat. 1-4 that expire in March.  As you can imagine, there are NO Cat. 1-4 hotels in DC.  I called the Elite Cust. Service to see if I might be able to combine my two certs into one worthwhile one or upgrade the cert with points.  I explained the situation to them, but no go.  So I guess I am stuck using some of my points we were saving for Hawaii to get a good hotel in DC.  Okay, finally to my questions:

 

  • Recommendations on a good hotel in DC for sightseeing as we will not have a car.
  • E-certs, the agent led me to believe they do extend the expiration date sometimes, but not until they are closer to expiring.  Has anyone had experience with this?  I hate to gamble & wait until they are close to expiring, but honestly I have no use for a Cat. 1-4 between now & March....
  • Also E-certs, the Marriott account is in my husbands name and the cust. service told me we could only ever use them if he was traveling with me - really???
