          Very convenient and one of the most reasonably priced hotels in DC.

          I stayed at the Holiday Inn - Capitol for 3 nights in August 2013 during my summer holiday and would highly recommend this to anyone planning to visit Washington DC whether that be for business or pleasure. First of all with a Holiday Inn you know exactly what you're going to get and the rooms were clean and tidy and well maintained. When I was looking at hotels for Washington DC this kept coming up as a popular one for its location and I can definitely agree. The hotel is a matter of minutes from the National Mall and is not far away from Ronald Reagan Airport. On top of everything else the staff are really polite and helpful and the porter was very helpful in pointing me in the right direction to Nationals Ballpark (about a 30 minute walk away). To be honest I cannot recommend this hotel enough and will stay here the next time I'm in Washington DC.

          After our Scottish breakfast we ventured downstairs and got a taxi over to L'Enfant Plaza (named for Pierre L'Enfant, the Frenchman who designed Washington) where I joined my Washington Grand Tour group, consisting of three other people. Tom went off to find the metro to get to the Pentagon. My tour initially visited all the memorials we saw the …

          Tom was off before 9am to make his way, via the Metro and the public bus system, to the Stephen F. Udvar-Hazy Centre. The centre is over one and a half hours away and it is part of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and Tom LOVED it. The museum is HUGE! He saw the Concorde (whose demise he still mourns), the Enola Gay (dropped the atomic …

          We went downstairs for our free breakfast - the cooked food looked awful. None of it looked appetising at all. I tried a dried up sausage and 2 bacon rashers cooked till even the devil left them alone. I resorted to two pieces of toast with peanut butter and strawberry jam (and they'd hidden them up with the fruit - not next to the bread as they …

          ... today but sunny. And it snowed for a nanosecond while we were at the market. First stop, as always, was for coffee but for the first time no soy. Next door to the Peregrine and an excellent brew is had. Somehow the markets did not seem as interesting as first visit but both of us spent a few dollars on items none the less. To celebrate our last day we decided a nice lunch was in order so went to an Italian I had seen recommended. ...

The morning was spent learning how to properly use the tools like chop saws, skill saws, drills, etc., and the afternoon on small projects- painting, fitting a few doors and coping baseboards. Victory of the day went to myself and Oliver, working on baseboards. We managed to get ...
