We took a Greyhound bus down to Washington DC for two nights. The bus only cost us $58 return each which was a bargain! It took about 4 and a half hours to get there and then we walked to our hotel. Helen had booked us in to the Four Points Sheraton which was like a palace compared to the hostel! Lovely beds, private bathroom and a tv yay! We took …
... time" to tour the museum. We did Daniel's story first, which does NOT require a ticket. You can walk in anytime. It was geared towards children. It was AMAZING! My students will do a PBL (project-based learning) unit on this! I picked up two books to go along with it. We had to pull Weston through the exhibit because he wanted to read EVERYTHING! The story was told through the eyes of a child via his diary entries. Sound familiar? Diary of Anne Frank? The pile of shoes ...
... It is NOT Mexican Independence Day (that is in September) and Mexico does NOT celebrate the day (except for the little town of Puebla-- which was the host of the battle that the day does represent).
Next we went to visit some memorials. These were SO fabulous and honestly I could have spent a couple of hours at each (though I am not sure a 12 year old would have the same attention span) and we zoomed through them, spending about ...

I was so excited that I was there for the exact blooming of the Cherry Blossoms. I have never seen them before. I have heard Frankki talk about them and how beautiful they are.
After the conference I stayed with a friend Mary. Tuesday night I had dinner with Mary and another friend of ours, Jo-Ann. It was great to connect again with Golden Sisters.
Wednesday I took a day to wander ...
We spent the morning in the lounge of the hotel before heading by taxi to Dulles Airport. Checked in for our flight and was told we could choose our seats. It was a jumbo jet and was empty. It was like travelling first class - we all had 4 seats each and after being served dinner just lay down and slept. Touched down in Heathrow to wet weather - typical cold UK day. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Points by Sheraton Washington DC
My family recently visited Washington DC. We picked the Four Points Sheraton because it had an indoor pool (rather rare) and a club floor.
Great hotel, not so great management. I was surprise to find out that on Friday and Saturday this hotel's lobby turns into a drag-queen club were hordes of drag queens and I am talking butt-cheeks hanging out of their clothes, hang-out. If you have children you will have a lot of explaining to do! When I complained at the Front Desk. I was informed that on Fridays and Saturdays the ballroom becomes a "night club" by the name "Noche de Fuego" and it's mainly a homosexual party ran by the GM of the property. Therefore any complaints against the activities fall on deaf ears! I was staying on the second floor and the noise was unbearable, the room was vibrating from the pulse of the music downstairs. When I asked if I could be moved the front desk staff informed me that the hotel was sold-out. I did not sleep all night because the "club" does not stop until 3:00am. The noise was deafening.
I stayed at the Four Points over three days for a conference. When I got to the desk, they didn't have the room I had reserved. After a slight complaint, they gave me another room and knocked $30 off the price. The Room was really nice. Quite large and on the corner of the hotel. All the standard comforts were there, plus a newspaper in the morning and a robe in the closet. As for the Hotel, I was very surprised. There's an indoor pool and outdoor deck on the roof. The lobby is immaculate and the staff very attentive. I've always thought of this chain as standard business-class fare, but I wouldn't hesitate to stay here for pleasure as well.
I stayed here with two 16 year old boys. The pool was small but was used by one of the boys; it's nice to be able to leave the room and have a place to sit and read for a bit. The room was comfortable, not real big, but good. The location was great. We did a lot of walking and also used the Metro to get around. We only stayed for a weekend, so we had lots to see in that short time and the location of this hotel was convenient. There is a quick breakfast place across the street for weekdays and a McDonald's a few blocks away for weekends. We also found Capitol Brew Pub close by for inexpensive and enjoyable dinners. The staff members of the hotel were pleasant and friendly. I would stay here again!
Had a few days in Washington last summer. I normally backpack and stay in Hostels, but this was a quick break from work so I decided to treat myself for the first couple of nights! Found a great rate on the Starwood website. Hotel was clean, with a very nice sized room. Staff were very friendly. This was my first US hotel experience (although I've spent a lot of nights in business-y hotels in the UK) and it was very pleasant. The hotel is located in a quiet area, not a lot going on at night but it seemed safe. Only a short walk from a Metro station, so it was quick and easy to get around on public transport. All in all I'd highly recommend this hotel - it's not flashy, but it does everything well.
Very good price/quality ratio
Just back from DC where we spent a night at the 4 Point: very good service and what good pillows
Recently stayed here as a last resort as all my normal choices were fully booked....have to say I was very pleased with the experience. I agree with a previous reviewer -the bed was very comfortable, plus the funiture was new a clean. No flaws to be seen in the bathroom either.
Room tend to be on the small side. The only service flaw I experienced was not being offered or even considered for a room upgrade as a spg member.
I had a business trip to D.C. and found a good rate for a club room, so I reserved it online. Even though I had my room confirmed and I am "Preferred guest" (doh) I was checked in a standard room. When I saw the room, I complained but wasn't given any explanation. The receptionist offered me two "GREAT" choices: a downgrade to standard adjusting my rate, or a club room the day after (PAYING FOR CLUB ALSO THAT NIGHT). I stated my choice had been and was "club" for every single day, so finally, after some more discussion I got my room.
I stayed here for 4 nights during a business trip. The location is at 12th & K and very centrally located in downtown DC. Room service was timely and delicious; the furniture looks new; bed was firm; very cordial customer service; rate was very economical. Stay here...I recommend it!
Great location, comfort and value!
We were very pleased with the Sheraton Four Points in downtown D.C. The location worked out great--a few blocks from the Metro stop, walking distance to some sites, good breakfast place across the street (weekdays only), McDonalds a couple blocks away, department store nearby (handy because my daughter forgot her swimsuit), rental cars across the street...The room was small but very nice, and the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever experienced! We got a good room rate on-line, which made it even better. Based on the one day that we ate breakfast at the hotel, I'd only recommend doing that if you aren't in a hurry to start your day. Other than that, everything was great.
