Default Washington and the Smithsonian Museums

I'll be visiting Washington later this year to get a look at the spaceflight collections in both the National Mall and the Udvar-Hazy buildings of the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.

Is anyone here familiar with the area? Is it better to take a hotel near Dulles Airport (and go to the city center by bus) - or to take a hotel in the city and go out to Chantilly by bus? So far I only found out that there is a connecting bus running along the east side of the airport leading to Udvar-Hazy, and an express bus from the airport to the city center, close to all the sights there, which I also want to see of course (White House, Capitol, Lincoln Memorial,...)

So what would you suggest for a 3 day trip?
