There's no metro in Georgetown as it's somewhat isolated from the rest of the city if you look at the map. But it also doesn't have many hotels so it's highly likely that you are actually staying in Foggy Bottom or West End which does have a metro station. Use google maps for transit directions, or wmata.com.

Note that your hotel is most likely near the Foggy Bottom Metro Station, and many museums are near the Smithsonian Metro Station. The 30S and 30N buses run on Pennsylvania Avenue and go to the Mall.

Believe it or not: N stands for Naylor Road, S stands for Southern Avenue; they do not have anything to do with North or South.

You need to say exactly what hotel to get good directions.

The circulator bus is an option also, one line runs along M St and then up Wisconsin in real Georgetown. I think it comes up Penn Ave from Foggy Bottom.

That actually is real Georgetown. The aforementioned $1 Circulator bus would be useful for getting to the White House and Supreme Court (near Union Station). dccirculator.com/georgetown-union-station/

For the Mall it's a long-ish (just under a mile) but straightforward walk to the Foggy Bottom metro station where then you can take the train to the Mall or other attractions. Depending on traffic/transfers may be a wash compared to taking the bus.
