Landed safe and sound with a stopover back in Chicago. Could feel the icy winds as we stepped off the plane. Massive snowstorm across the states but we think we missed the worst of it. 3 days in the Capital starting with a sneak peak at my good mate The Presidents house. Got the rear view first up and not that impressed. Heading over for dinner …
Washington was the perfect place to end our history lesson. The town was built after all the action in Boston and Philly, so we had accidentally followed the USA's path nationhood (I hope that's a word). We stayed a short distance from Watergate and made the most of the Trolley tour that encircled the touristy part of town. The highlight for me was …

We start off with an amble around the Baltimore inner harbour to drink gluhwein at the German christmas market (are there any Germans left in Germany over Christmas?? They seem to be able to run markets on every continent all with the same wooden huts, freaky nutcracker statues and delicious hot spiced wine) and apparently the cold has chased away the "thugs" as the waterfront has been ...

Much of the signage is in Spanish. Miami has similarities to the Gold Coast. It has similar beaches, canals, palm trees, high rises and wide open roads. Most of our exploring in Florida will be left for when Allison and Adriaan are here in February.
A few hours North of Miami is the ...
... a $20 ham and cheese toasted sandwich [luckily it tasted good and came with sides!]) we wandered over to the FBI building so we could buy merchandise! We each bought a cap and pretended (for a moment or two) that we were real agents! (Again perhaps too much movie/TV watching)! We did receive a bemused look from a real FBI agent as he left work for the day!
The next day, we had one main task on our agenda- the spy museum! This was a very ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Avenue Suites Georgetown Washington DC
Just back from a 5 day trip to Washington and thought the Washington Suites was a great find! Very reasonably priced for a spacious suite and full kitchen facilities. Initially thought the kitchen unnecessary until our daughter got sick the final night and we were able to make her soup rather than having to go out.
We stayed at the Washington Suites ($ 119 per night) for a week during August 2004. We were a family of five and found the room quite spacious.
WE"LL BE BACK
My 3 grandchildren ages 8 to 16 years were there July16 to the 19 2004. We loved it.The rooms were very clean. Everything we needed in the kitchen for making meals.Their free breakfast was my grandsons favorite, also those games the kids like. I enjoyed the movie we rented from the tv. The lady at the front desk the morning we arrived was friendly and helpful.The gentleman that put our bags in safe keeping until we could ck in was a great help. I CAN"T PRAISE EVERYONE ONE THERE ENOUGH FOR ALL THE HELP. THANK YOU WE WILL BE BACK
Highly recommended for families
We came with our 4 teenagers and found the rooms so spacious and clean, we all sprawled out and had some space. The bathroom had 2 sinks, one inside with shower, one outside the door as well as a large kitchen. Bathroom was all marble and looked new. We only stayed 2 nights but it's a perfect place for a longer stay also. Of our 2 week trip with 5 hotels, this was the only one that didn't make a mistake (lost reservation, smaller room, only 1 bed, etc. which the Hilton and Marriotts did to us). The Metro is accessible by a 10 minute walk, but the White House took us about 30 minutes to walk to. With construction around it was hard to see also. Definately would stay here again!
Great value - but limited
The rooms were very good, clean and comfortable. It was really great having separete bedroom and kitchen and a dining table. Kitchen was minimally equipped, plates, cups, glasses, basic cutlery, basic pots and pans. No utensils for cooking.
The only problem we had was the HVAC. They have a system where the air or heat is on for the whole building. You cannot directly control the temperture in the suite. The system is either on or off, with no variance in the room. This proved to be very uncomfortable at times. We stuffed towels in the living area of the room to tone down the air.
The location is good, the staff friendly. It was a very good buy and overall very good, but due to the air/heat problem, would not stay there again.
We stayed at the Washington Suites over the July 4, 2004 holiday. Our suite had 2 double beds in a separate room with a TV. The living area had a foldout bed and TV. The suite also had a full kitchen with refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, microwave, silverware, pots, pans, dishes and glassware. We never cooked but we could if necessary.
Great, safe, location & great value
We chose this hotel after reading the good reviews and it was a good choice. Its in a great location, 5 mins easy & safe walk to the Metro and a 10mins leisurely and safe walk to Georgetown restaurants & shops. It was completely safe even at night time. After being downtown all day it was great to come back to Georgetown and relax and soak up the atmosphere there. The suites are great, it was fabulous to have more than just a 1 room hotel room - we took breakfast up to our room & used the kitchen there which was v relaxing. A couple of tips - the reception desk girl is not very helpful, (the guys were fabulously friendly). And ask for a room at the back not overlooking Pennyslavia Av as it can be very noisy. Overall, its a great location & I would recommend it.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for five nights. We had our 3 teenage children with us. The night clerk was extremely cordial and polite upon our late check-in. The room was spacious, clean, and moderately up-to-date. The lodging price per evening was moderate, which helped us to allow all members of our family to travel. The location was superior, and our teenagers could walk to and from the shops in Georgetown. My husband and I enjoyed dining and dancing on Valentine's Day in Georgetown. We had a rental vehicle, and valet parking was available (for a fee). The complimentaly morning breakfast was very nice and helped to get us all up and out of the room to start our day. I cannot say enough about how nice the staff was - they treated all of us with such helpfullness and kindness - they were fabulous. I give this hotel a positive recommendation!!!!!!!
We found this hotel to offer great value. From our check-in which was warm, friendly, helpful, to the suite swhich is spacious, comfortable, a good-size kitchen with oven, full-size refrigerator and microwave, plus dishwasher and utensils for those who need, to the comfortable sitting room which has comfortable couches, desk, TV, and then the main bedroom which had two comfortable queen size beds, ample drawer space, another TV, and led to an alcove with a rack for hanging clothes, and then a bathroom with a good shower and plenty of good towels. The hotel location is very convenient, about four minutes from the subway, barely fifteen minutes from the airport, and walking distance to the White House or to some of the main buildings such as the Lincoln Memorial. On top of all this comes an adequate breakfast of cereals, muffins, croissants, cold juices or coffee or tea, and there is also a small exercise room with treadmill and weight machine. Excellent value. We felt very comfortable. Very reasonable price.
I recently stayed in this hotel. The rooms are very large with a decent sized kitchen. The decor is okay...a bit dated, but not bad. The rooms were clean. The only criticism is not really of the hotel but the location...it is a bit of a walk (approx. 4-5 blocks) to get to a transit station. It was fine because we just stayed downtown all day and didn't want to go back to the hotel to rest. But if you had young children and wanted to take a break, it would was a lot of your time walking all the way back from the station.
