We got off our bus this morning in Washington central, at the Smithsonian Musuem....wow...the kids split and walked around there for 1.5 hours, we met back up and then had lunch...subway. From the we walked up to the Lincoln memorial, had many photos and looked around. Lots to do. When our coach " found us" (don't ask)...we headed off to the ...
... at her beautiful townhouse.
We were also able to visit the dream property of Diana and Dick Virgo – it’s a mansion that befits the beautiful parcel of land it falls on, it truly has spectacular 360 degree views. In between many dinners and lunches with Eliza, Sean and Jenny, we did get out and about over the week. The highlight for Rachel and Sophie was undoubtedly Halloween and the getting ready before the event. Rachel made a spooky ...
... they both died in the attack.
The Atom Bomb was being built for military use; to President Truman it was as if entire planet fell on him. The president was a hard, working persistent man that wouldn't give up. He pushed through the first years as president and helped end World War II with the bombing of Japan. The bomb he released was nothing like any other bomb. The atom bomb had the force of 20,000 ...
... was packed and full of tents and trucks that sold 3 meals each. I had a good look around before choosing what I wanted which ended up being a Pulled Pork Roll. Was pretty desent. I then headed back to the National Mall and saw Washington Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, and the National Museum of History. The Washington Memorial was my favourite. The sheer size of it drew me in from miles away and standing underneath it was almost scary as it looked like it ...
... the Vietnam, Korean and WWIi war memorials, and the White House. It was pretty cool seeing them all lit up, although you can't get that close to the White House anymore so my photos didn't turn out that great. We then walked back to the hostel, but by this time it had started raining so that wasn't much fun. It ended up being a petty long night so we just crashed when we got back. The next day was a free day in DC, and despite warnings that it would be raining, the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Adam's Inn Washington DC
A Hidden Jewel
Tired of staying in the Mc-Hotels that make you feel like you're in the same strip mall no matter what city you're visiting? Me, too. That's why Adams Inn was a breath of fresh air for my wife and I on our 9th anniversary/thirty-something-ish birthday celebration. A quaint, brownstone front porch greeted us, and an old-world, familial living area embraced us with its warmth and genuineness. Original fixtures and a friendly staff made us feel like we were going back in time. Our room, like so many at the Inn, was an original. Hand-painted walls, gracious furniture in a living area, and --Praise the Lord-- no phone or TV! We had privacy and quiet in the heart of the nation's capital, steps away from the hottest restaurants, night clubs, and cafes in the city. Breakfast was wholesome, nothing too unusual, but best of all was the courtly rapport between all of us Inn-dwellers. Adams Inn, we're permanent fans.
Warm, charming and friendly bed and breakfast
We stayed at Adams Inn for a "night in the city" for our anniversary.
The accomodations were quaint and warm with unique touches. The service was friendly and excellent. The inn is centrally located, near restaurants and landmarks. We especially recommend the English basement room, which is private and well decorated.
Quaint but Lacks Friendliness
Great location and an excellent facility, however, the entire staff save one lacked the type of friendly service one would expect in a bed and breakfast. When asked a question about the area or simply making small talk, the staff was rude and quick to stunt the conversation.
Other than the people, the facility was great with computer access that helps tourists find their way. I would recommend staying here for a nice visit in a fun D.C. area, but do not expect much from the staff.
We stayed here for our first Trip to D.C. and it was perfect. Its just a 10 min walk to the subway and a 5 min walk to the zoo. The room was spacious and although we shared a bathroom, there was never a wait to use it. The breakfasts were above average and the service/managment was cordial.
The one complaint would have to be the pillows. They were very thin and made out of sponge.
I'll be staying here next time and would highly recommend the Adams Inn to anybody. Except next time I'll bring my own pillows.
Short, but sweet honeymoon!
We've stayed at Adam's Inn after our wedding&reception. So we needed somewhere which let us check in pretty late. They helped us checking in outside their office hour. (We checked in around 11:00pm.) We loved our spacious and tasteful bedroom, the cozy TV/computer room, etc... The staff were nice and helpful too.
Cozy and Quaint
We were warmly welcomed and made to feel right at home. Tea, coffee and cookies were available at all times of the day. The room and bath were immaculate and the breakfast simple, yet tasty. Common areas were comfortable and nicely decorated. The price was right, too!!
Great Bed and Breakfast!
We really enjoyed our stay at Adams Inn. The people were nice. It was in a great location. Very inexpensive! Only reason it gets a 4 instead of 5 is because the fire alarm in our room went off every time you took a shower. But management moved us without any questions at all!
A 5-star bed and breakfast
A quiet, clean, charming spot in hip Adams-Morgan. Great staff who want to make your stay pleasant, tasty breakfast and afternoon tea, guest laundry and internet facilities, and a lovely yard for private sunning or conversation.
This is a very friendly, relaxing inn with a distinct European charm. I was impressed by the amenities and the physical design, including the woodwork. The inn also is in a fascinating section of town with lots of nightlife. The staff work hard to make this a very pleasant place to stay.
Convenient, cozy and clean
What a great place to stay!! Aweesome location with great rates. Stayed here a couple of years ago and then paid a return visit in September. They have done a great job renovating and the breakfast is much improved.
Definitely a place worth recommending.
