Check AirBnB for Pentagon City near the shopping mall. We scored a great deal on a 2-bedroom, 2-bath, 4-bed apartment. It was within 100 yards of a Metro station, where you could go anywhere in DC with ease. Loved it.

Here is what I end up doing
1> Day 1 drive from Boston to Liberty park, jersey city and went to statue of liberty (and ellis island).
Book explorer pass for NY for 3 attractions, this pass is valid for 30 days and I includedAf statue of liberty as one attraction.
After Statue of Liberty drive to Bordentown, NJ, stayed in comfort Inn (book thru price line $48 per room per night).
2> Day 2 drive to Washington park car in washington DC. For finding parking places I find parking panda best website you can reserve
the parking place for $16 per day. Visited Smithsonian visitor center and Air+space museum.
Stayed in Northern suburb in Maryland near college park in comfort inn book thru Priceline again ( $55 per room per night)
3> Day 3 drive to Washington DC downtown (used parking panda again to find the parking spot near museums) visited
Natural history museum, Art museum, washington monument, white house. Stayed in same hotel (2)
4> Day 4 drive to Washington zoo, rock state park. Drive back to philly spend time in Independence visitor center and museum.
Went to Robbinsville, NJ to see new constructed hindu temple.
Stayed in Hilton, Newark ( $69 per day booked for two nights thru bjs.com travel)
5> Day 5 Drive to Jersey city park car thru parking panda ($8 per day) and took train to NY.
Visited 9/11 memorial (another attraction in explorer pass), Wall Street (Federal Hall), Trinity church.
Use subway to travel to times square. Visited Times square and Rockefeller (another attraction in explorer pass).
Stayed in Hilton as in (4)
6> Day 6 Drive to Secaus Junction park car in train parking lot ($10) took train to penn station.
From there took train to central park. Spend 5 hours in central park, Grand centeral terminus.
