... and there are even rockets ready to fire in case of emergency. Washington is a lovely city. There are trees and grass and space! Much nicer than any other major city we have seen in the US so far. However, it is still sad to see the homeless person with their "home" set up on the walkway bench. We walked the entire length of Pennsylvania Avenue. From the White House through to the Capitol Building. Along the way we saw the old post office, the J. Edgar ...
... rambling ways.
Having parted ways with the Sach's we headed to relive some more of Sara & Chris Agne's wedding from 2 years prior. We had already done the OBBS (Brewery) the site of their welcome drinks, now onto the Hilton Garden Inn, the beach & Kitty Hawk pier where all the festivities took place. It was all just as beautiful but Sara & Chris definitely got lucky on their big day with the weather...as today it started to rain. ...
... Well, I couldn't have been more wrong if I'd tried; when I got to the airport there were about 50-60 people in front of me to check in and more and more people turning up all the time.
On top of the fact that there was an absolutely massive queue there were only two (yes a whole two) AirTran employees at the check-in desk who doing absolutely nothing. Considering it was now about 3.45am, the flight was leaving at 6.00am and I hadn't had the best luck so far I ...
Dearest readers, All good things must come to an end and sadly enough this is my last day at The Washington Center. –Insert very, very sad face- In a couple of hours time, I'll be on the plane on my way back to Belgium. Sitting here now, typing this out, feeling reflective and appreciative of my time with The Washington Center, I would like to take a moment to thank a few folks who made my time in DC not only possible, but also incredibly amazing!! First of all, many thanks to ...
... The names of the Americans killed or missing in the Vietnam War are engraved into a long bending wall.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn Alexandria - Old Town/King Street Metro
Charming Hotel on King St.
We stayed four nights at the Hampton Inn. This charming hotel is a perfect spot for exploring Washington DC because it is down the street from the Metro. We also like staying here because Alexandria is a nice town to come back to at the end of the day. There are a lot of good restaurants and shops in the area . The hotel is great because the rooms are large and clean and the staff is pleasant and very helpful. The bonus is the breakfast that is included. I cannot wait until my next visit.
Great Hotel - family friendly!
We spent 5 nights at the Inn. Very thing was excellent. The room was large enough for our family of five and the continental breakfast was great. The location was very convenient to the T and to Old Town Alexandria. Our only disappointment was that the pool closed at 8 pm, before we returned several days from our sightseeing adventures!
Very good in every way
Stayed for 9 days while visiting D C. The breakfasts were well above "contenental", rooms were clean with excellent furniture, ALL staff were quick to help/advise, parking convienent allthough we only used metro system, Dash bus stopped in front of hotel and we will certainly stay there on our next visit.
Great hotel, great value, great location
I really enjoyed my stay here. The hotel was nicely decorated and must have been recently renovated as everything was in great condition and very clean. The service was courteous and friendly. It is what I would expect from a four star hotel - you could not walk by any staff member without being greeted and asked if they could do anything for you. The free continental breakfast had more options then what is typically served. $8.00 parking is much cheaper than the $20.00 or so a night typically charged in the area. The metro stop is a block and a half away and if you fly into Regan National Airport it is a five minute train ride away with a stop right outside the airport. There are many nice restaurants in the surrounding blocks and the biggest problem you face is choosing which one to eat in. The last time I stayed in the DC area I stayed at a dump for the same price, so I was surprised how nice this one was for the money.
Best of both worlds
This hotel was really the best of both worlds. First, rooms were comfortable and clean, the staff was incredibly friendly, and there was a good breakfast in the lobby included. The location in Alexandria might seem odd for sight-seeing in DC, but we were 2 blocks from the Metro...blue and yellow lines, which take you to two different areas of the Mall in about 10 minutes. After spending the day in DC, go back to the hotel for a rest, and then you are ready to choose from a large selection of all kinds of restaurants that you can walk to. This part of Alexandria is quaint and historic in feel and seemed quite safe to stroll around to eat and window shop in the evening. Just keep your car in the hotel's underground garage ($8 day, much less than the prices in DC). We didn't use it except to go to the new Air and Space Museum at Dulles Airport (don't miss it).
No problems here!
We stayed at the Hampton on King Street for one night in November '03, after a long day of travel from Alaska. Check-in was a breeze, it was like they were waiting for me as they welcomed me by name (things were admittedly slow late on a Saturday night). A nice touch nonetheless.
Parking is a very reasonable $8 a night, you drive around the block behind the hotel and enter a well-lit and secure underground garage.
The room was not too big, not too small, nicely appointed, clean, and quiet. Breakfast was in the lobby from 6 am to 10 am. I thought the jack in the wall was for high speed internet but alas, it was only a standard telephone outlet. Providing broadband would be my only suggestion for improvement. Overall, this was a very enjoyable stay and I would definitely come back.
I was very pleased with my stay at this hotel! Not only is the location great, the staff was very professional and friendly! It is worth paying a little extra for this Hampton Inn as it is beautiful, convenient and very clean! I travel to this area quite a bit and I now plan on staying at this hotel each time I come into town! See you soon Hampton Inn Old Town/King Street.
The Best Hampton Inn I've Stayed In
My wife and I stayed at the Hampton Inn Old Town/King Street after deciding to take a small trip to the DC area to escape the hustle and bustle in the city. What a GREAT idea! The hotel was a very upscale Hampton Inn and right in the heart of historic Old Town. We really felt like we were in a 4 star hotel with the decor, service and location.
Parking is available at a small fee and the metro is only 2 blocks away. We enjoyed all the many unique restaurants and shops and came away very refreshed from our relaxing trip! I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a GREAT hotel at a GREAT price!
Thanks Hampton Inn Old Town/King Street!!!!!!!!!
Extremely pleased with the Hampton Inn
We had a very good stay. The hotel was very well kept -- very clean, nice decor, helpful staff and close to a metro station. The hotel parking was also inexpensive. The complimentary breakfast was very good - nice variety - more than I expected.The only thing I wished was that the bathrooms had fans in them. When we'd shower, the room would fog up. Other than that, it was perfect. We would definitely stay there again.
Some uneasy moments
We stayed the weekend of Oct 26th -- we certainly did have some very uneasy moments as a result of the staffs lack of emergency response training.
The Fire Department had need to respond to an alarm and I observed a major delay in obtaining a elevator key for the firemen. After trying every key in the key safe, the firemen gave up and went back outside to find one.
Neither could the key to turn off the alarm be located and while the firemen worked feverishly
for nearly a 1/2 hour to silence the alarm, no assurances were provided to the guests.
