On 5 June my family and I spent a very rewarding day at Jamestown Elementary School in Arlington County. Jamestown is a large elementary school catering for around 650 students from Kindergarten through to Grade 4. It is one of 32 schools in the Arlington County public system. My contact for the visit was Camilla, who is Apple Distinguished Educator and responsible for overseeing ICT in the school. She also works with a number of other schools ...
Busy week this week with the dogs flying across, finding a house and getting the second car. The dog saga is blogged in a different entry. It looks like we finally have a house that takes one small well behaved dog - just like we haven't got. We should be able to ...
... king room, but Angie asked if we could have a twin, and we were moved without an issue. There is a supermarket and various cafes in the vicinity, though it did seem like a lot of the neighbouring food places were mainly open on weekdays -i.e. when all the nearby office buildings are open.
... friendly people (e.g. lady on our first metro ride offered me her seat due to our large bags).
So I guess here is a good point to sum up our time in the US of A as we are leaving now to head to Canada. I have had a great time, made greater by having my own personal tour guide (Jenny) although I did sack her a few times but she kept coming back! Haha. Boston was our first port of call and it was both our first time to visit. Jenny the tour guide came ...
... cookie dough. Both were amazing!! We walked up king street and checked out all the quirky shops. It was amazing! We found a candy store called Candi's Candy's which had so many different sweets! We were really tempted by the taffy! They had barrels of different flavoured taffy! Yum! We got a bucket each and chose what we wanted. Mohamed are quite a few before we got to the till! Such a child! Hahaha!! We walked around Old Town in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard by Marriott Arlington Rosslyn
We stayed here on the weekend of April 15-17, 2005, and it was excellent. The room was renovated with new Marriott-style bedding. Lots of pillows, attractive bedspread, and contrasting wall decorations. It was classy feeling.
Horrible Internet Service
The wired internet service inside the room is horrendous. You can connect to it for 1 minute and then after that minute's up, you get disconnected for 2 minutes. And then it will connect you again, but of course, this is only for 1 minute and the cycle continues. This makes any I-Phone and video conferencing impossible. Not to mention being signed in and out of your favorite IM software a million times within the same hour is not a very good experience. I would much rather they inform patrons that "No, we do not have free internet at all." than to come here and get internet service that is worse than dial up from the early 1990s. If at all possible, there are many other better hotels out there with better service AND internet options.
Thanks for reading.
This Courtyard was a step above most I have stayed in over the years. The rooms were recently renovated--a modern Euro kind of style. As well, new beds were obviously placed in the rooms that are of the Sheraton "sweet sleeper" sort and include something like five pillows. Free high speed internet access on a huge desk. Very pleasant staff in all areas from the front desk to the restaurant (where we never ate). Short 3-5 minute walk to the Metro station several tiny blocks away. Excellent housekeeping service. Safeway behind the rear of the hotel. A safe and quiet neighborhood that is somewhat dead at night. Georgetown, however, is minutes away (driving) and maybe a twenty minute walk over the Key Bridge. Very pleasant indoor pool (w/ lifeguard there at all times) and workout room. Probably a great hotel for business travelers and families whose main focus is on sightseeing alike. Cheers!
I was SO impressed with this hotel! After staying in a 5 Star hotel in New Orleans in June, that was absolutely AWFUL, it was SO nice to stay at the Courtyard! Everything was excellent. The decor, the rooms (very clean!), the staff. They even have a shuttle van that will take you anywhere within 6 blocks. That includes the Metro stop in Rosslyn. I would definately go back to this hotel and highly recommend it to EVERYONE!!
Nice hotel, good location
We stay here often and find it a first-class facility that's near enough to DC to make it very convenient.
We just finished a wonderful nine night stay at the Courtyard Arlington Rosslyn and I would definitely suggest staying here. The Rosslyn metro is an uphill three or four blocks from the hotel but it is a very safe area and we walked it at night without any problems. One of the young ladies at the front desk was especially helpful and she always had a smile on her face. Her name was Sharmin and her name tag said she was from Bangladesh. We had a wonderful room on the ninth floor. Everything was clean and a morning paper was at our door every week day morning. Although they have a free shuttle to the Rosslyn metro, we decided to walk it every day. The two places that we enjoyed eating at the most were both easy walks from the hotel. The Red, Hot and Blue was a block and a half away and the food and atmosphere were great. We ate three nights at the Orleans which is also walking distance being about three blocks down from the hotel. Both restaurants are located on Wilson Avenue. They had a wonderful salad bar and all of our meals were good. Be sure to walk to the Iwo Jima memorial from the hotel. It is about five blocks. Try to go on a Tuesday or Thursday night during the summer when the Marine Corps band plays. They usually start ariund 7 P. M. Enjoy the hospitality of the Courtyard Rosslyn in Arlington, we sure did.
Mostly very good!
The Hotel Staff & rooms were very good. The shuttle service was excellent! The one BIG problem was the restaurant for breakfast. We attended during the WWII Dedication in May & only 2 people were on staff at the restaurant!!!! Consequently, everyone had to wait to be seated, to be served, & to get their bill & then pay it. Certainly with a major event of this size, more staff should have been added.
Stayed at this hotel (on a Priceline bid) Cmas Eve and Cmas Day 2003. I had read a couple on-line reviews from Summer '03 that the hotel was under major renovations and that it was a real pain staying there. By the time we checked in in late December, the desk clerk told me that all of the renovations (save for the last 7 rooms) were completed.
Better than expected!
I bid for a hotel on priceline and was a bit upset that I was going to have to go down to a 2.5 star rather than my usual 3 star. I usually win the Hilton in Ballston and I liked this one better! I thought it was cleaner. Everything seemed new. We got free parking in their controlled-access garage (it was a Saturday night). Check out time was noon. No problems whatsoever, would stay again.
We stayed here June 28 - July 5, 2003 A family of 4 on vacation. (You can walk back to the hotel after a great view of the fireworks at the Arlington Nat. Cemetary) The hotel is undergoing major room and restuarant renovations! The lobby floor is cluttered with construction.
