... the Jeffersonian Aero and space museum and even though a few of the exhibitions were closed, it was still really wow and I wish I had more than the hour I had to allocate to it and would so love to bring the Fern Room kids! .... It was then off to the White House, was surprised at how little security was visible ( sure there was a lot hidden) and how close you could get! ... It sure was impressive though to see it ...
... the rigours of
our travels on the Insterstate 95 (South) momentarily sapped our energy. It’s
returning as the sun sets and the Egg’s on-board fridge produces admirably
The Egg is how Mrs Henry and I refer to the Dodge RAM 1500,

Today was my last full day in DC. I packed up my things from Arup's place and left around 9:30am. I went to the smithsonian and found some free lockers I was able to put all my bags into while I biked around to a few more spots. The museum of natural history was my favorite one. They had a best of nature photography exhibit that was incredible. There is a video of all the photos - http://youtu.be/rBFFDTUqsWU. ...
Oh--AND they asked for volunteers to hand over their bags to be checked all the way to destination--no charge. Since we had already had to check bags and would be waiting at baggage claim anyway, this was a no brainer! I just have to think that if they weren't charging $25 a bag, fewer people would be dragging vast quantities of carry on bags, and they wouldn't have this problem. Nuts.
... I know I don't need to describe it but yeah, it was quite amazing. Just a shame about all the gawking tourists (myself included). From the steps is probably the best place to view the phallic Washington Monument beyond the long reflecting pool, however it was under construction due to an earthquake in 2011 so it was covered with a metal protective structure. In front of the Lincoln Memorial was a kind of mini concert with an unconvincing Lincoln reciting ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Adam's Inn Washington DC
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.
