... us in for a cup of tea, but was left disappointed.
Next stop was The Elipse. Normally you can see it for miles around but ,again, it’s white and non too visible in the snow. On finding our way across we found it was covered in part by scaffolding. Still not impressed yet.
So we made our way to the war memorials. Now here’s where the good points stack up. The memorials are stunning and moving and do an excellent job of provoking thought and ...
... th Street and got a great view of the Capitol, where congress is located. The other direction we saw the sun setting over the museums which was a beautiful sight also.
Letting our stomachs guide us we walked up 7th Street until we reached our street H. There was a Spanish restaurant La Tasca which looked popular and sounded delicious. I had a sangria which went straight to my head, while Joel had a beer. We shared a range of Tapas from a set ...

When we go back outside the night was falling and as we commenced our walk back to Union station to grab some dinner and hop onto the train to NYC, we walked across the large park that faces the US Capitol building and man oh man, the building was just being touched by the final rays of the sunset and it was a magnificent ...
... in wheel chairs travel on the buses all the time, there is a special place where the seats go up against the wall and as soon as a person in a chair enters the bus everyone moves from those seats and the driver gets up and straps the chair into place so it won't roll. Wouldn't it be good if our people in Australia who are confined to a wheelchair could travel on public transport as easily as that.
I will get off my soap box now.
... floor on the self tour, and as we were ushered towards the elevators, a lady sitting on a chair pointed to a stack of papers and said "pick up an ID card" in quite a menacing way. I couldn't decide whether it was deliberate, and part of the experience, or not. Does it seem mildly inappropriate to anyone else??
From there, it was a short walk across the Mall, snapping some ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Washington D.C.
My wife and I stayed here for two nights with our four-month-old daughter. Every moment of our stay was perfect. The staff is friendly and not a hint of pretensiousness. The room was spotless, comfortable and well-equipped. The restaurant was outstanding for both dinner and breakfast. The location is great, too! Georgetown is a beautiful spot for a walk and shopping, and to get down to the tourist sites there is a 'Circulator' bus that goes straight (with transfer) to the Mall and other major downtown spots. The bus was only ONE dollar and we never waited more than a few minutes for one. It was also spotless and is a European-style transit bus with a low floor so we were able to push the stroller right on and go! This made up for the slightly out-of-the-way location of the hotel, and even better due to the convenience of a bus vs. a taxi or car service when traveling with a small child. Even though we stayed there for just two nights we were so pleased with our stay it felt like we were there for a week. Highly recommended and I can't imagine anything that could have been better!
Dilution of the brand
After staying at outstanding hotels of the chain earlier (New York, London, Budapest , Prague) I arrived with very high expectations. Unfortunately it was a disappointment. Although the location is perfect and the front-desk people was really nice, for $800 a night we had a view of a container full with garbage from our room. Some other guests seemingly got sick due to excessive alcohol consumption and throw-up in the hotel's elevator, which kept the unpleasant smell during our stay. Our executive suite was nice and roomy, all the materials used in the rooms were high quality, unfortunately the upholstery on chairs and sofas were not up to the standard - slightly dirty and aging. I'd go againg though - the location is really great.
I spent my birthday weekend at the Four Seasons in Georgetown. When our car delivered us to the lobby, we were greeted by a knowledgeable staff who was friendly, courteous and made us so welcome. We were escorted to our room which was simply wonderful. The room was decorated in exquisite taste and I loved the robes, jacuzzi and separate shower as well as private toilet - all enclosed behind the double doors. I asked for a CD player, which was not there, I called and (really!) before I hung up, two CD players with remotes were delivered (for each night stand). Room service was delicious, every time we ordered. I sat in wing chairs and relaxed in the sitting area. There was also a large crystal display with every kind of decadent candy you could think of. The fridge was also stocked with juices and waters and sodas.
My huband and I treat ourselves to an anniversary stay here - we did that 2 times so far (and possibly again next year)....Each time it's awesome. It is 4-5 star. Rooms are beautiful, bathrooms are gorgeous. If you are paying for a regular room, the room and breakfast package is usually only a little bit more per night and believe me, it's worth it. You can eat in the restaurant or have room service - treat yourself and get the room service - they even pour your cream in your coffee for you. The table is wheeled up to your room already set and with flowers. You can order as much or as little as you want and each time we ordered, if we had bought it in the restaurant it would have been $60 and we only paid about $5 more per night for the breakfast included so it's well worth it.
What more could you want?
The Four Seasons' tradition of luxury, class and sophistication continues unabated at the Washington DC location. From the staff who seem to have a psychic ability to anticipate your needs to the rooms which are elegant without being stuffy, this is a first-class hotel.
I had a wonderful stay here and will certainly keep the Four Seasons at the top of my list both in D.C. and likely just about everywhere else I can find one.
They haven't let me down yet!
We had the pleasure of staying here in January 2004. Our Executive Suite -- 800 sq. feet -- was very attractively furnished with thoughtful touches (e.g., the bedside, dimming reading lights), an exceedingly comfortable bed, and a huge, sumptuous bathroom. There is, however, a major drawback to the layout of the Executive Suites: there is but a partial wall between the bedroom and the living room, i.e., the two rooms cannot be entirely closed off from each other so that one's sleep might very well be disturbed if another member of your party wants to work at the desk in the living room or watch television there. Also, we heard more noise in the wee hours of the morning from the next-door suite than I would have expected -- but our neighbors were apparently a bevy of bridesmaids who had partied long & hard, so your experience might be better :-)
Luxury at it's best
I stayed here with my boyfriend in 2000. We stayed in the presidential suite for one night. We had room service and didn't leave the room.
The room was fantastic. The service, perfect.
The bathtub was clogged!
The hotel has a most urbane and cordial atmosphere, as expected. Our room was plush, but the top of a desk was stained and the bathtub would get clogged! Figure that out in an hotel chain that is supposedly careful about details. Our view was a warehouse and the highway. We had breakfast in the dining room, again most urbane, but the food although of great quality was not particularly tasty.
Good but thievery abounds
WATCH OUT!! Stayed at same hotel on two seperate occasions. On first stay over Christmas, 2 ornate belts were pilfered. Hotel security did what they could and of course came up with nothing. Hotel offered reduced rates for the next stay which I accepted. On second visit, a bolero tie with a rare coin on it was pilfered. Will never stay there again even if lodging is free because of security issues. Be WARNED....
I've stayed at better Four Seasons
I stayed for one night in August and yes,the airconditioning worked very well. My room on the 6 floor was very small and the bathroom was straight out of a budget motel. The staff insisted that this was a non smoking room but the drapes and bed spread smelled unpleasant.
However,the furnishings were pretty and the small room was comfortable.
The lap pool is a plus-it was great to know exactly how many laps to a mile.
