"It's not easy, being green...."
Which is just as much a jealous nod to those lucky locals with enough time to wander at leisure through all 19 Smithsonian museums, as Kermit the fabulously famous frog, whom we also saw today. (He was behind a case, so we're assuming he's the original!)
But I'm ahead of myself.
Today is Aidan's 12th birthday. Its all about him ........
1. Sleep in
2. Hot breakfast with sausage, egg & bacon.
So, we just gave in to the inevitable & went for all kids stuff. No museums. No art galleries.
Had some brilliant help from the gals at the front desk to pin down our options. All it took was …
We're not sure what to say.
Everyone had a brilliant day and we're lost for adjectives.
So just enjoy the Smithsonian pictures.......
PS: we sang Happy Birthday to Aidan at breakfast whilst it turned midnight in Melbourne
Happened to go on facebook last night and saw a post from a friend about seeing the space shuttle whilst he was in new york. Hang on - Jay is in new york and there is a space shuttle here. (!!??!!) This wasn't part of the plan we had, we were going to go to the natural museum today but a shuttle and aircraft carrier is a hand full of aces. A look …
... its 50 plus miniature (not mini, so we're told) golf courses, some being the best in the world. As it's low season they are closed for the winter. Clearly visible from the outside, one course has a plane strung 2 floors up. You're in a mock plane disaster before a helicopter, also midair, comes to rescue you. There's courses with train rides and floating pirate ships. Dave loves his miniature golf so it was a shame we couldn't go for a game or two.
For me to be able to put ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Washington - Georgetown Washington DC
My husband and I stayed here in 2003 and were very pleasntly surprised with this hotel. Our room was very spacious with lounge, bathroom was of a good size and very clean.
The staff were very friendly, the shuttle bus to Foggy Bottom station was great. We had breakfast delivered everymorning and it was large and tasty.
We didn't have a big budget and we could not complain about this hotel. We would stay there again in a flash. Georgetown is a great area to stay in, restaurants close by and the shuttle will drop you in the middle of Georgetown. We recommend this hotel if you are on a budget.
Watch out for the aptly named room 101
When we arrived we were given smoking rooms although we had requested non-smiking. Because the hotel was full they were unable to change the room.
My first room was aptly numbered 101. The window was on the ground floor. It was small, poorly maintained and shabby. The window had signs that it had been forced from the outside and apperaed to be a security risk. Had I been able to book another hotel that night I would have left then and there. If offered this room leave.
The subsequent room I got the following day was much more of the standard I would expect from Holiday Inn and iff I had been put there first I would have rated the hotel highly.
I had stayed here before in 1983 & just for kicks inquired to see if was still around. Lo & behold, it was and was still a Holiday Inn. Checked around & was recommended in safe neighborhood, etc so I booked into it for 6 nights.
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights middle June. After staying at the Holiday Inn White House Central a few days earlier for 3 nights--the comparison was obvious. This Georgetown Holiday Inn is much less quality than the one on Rhode Island NW. The lobby is average, the hallways not as wide and nicely decorated and the while we did get a large room in the back and nice and quiet --it was almost shabby. For the bed was less and the mattress cover was just a sloppy thing that made the sheets wrinkled and the sheets did not fit too big so the bed was uncomfortable because you kept have to straigten it out and you could not so there was slumpy mattress cover to sleep on which is really annoying so we did not sleep as well!. The room was clean, the hotel is clean but less quality than the Holiday Inn Central White House. On the plus side they have a free shuttle to the Foggybottom metro and so less walking to start the big walk around DC museums etc. And also close to restaurants either direction and grocery store next door. And our final morning we took a walk from the hotel to nearby neighborhood and enjoyed the parks, big trees, flowers, and houses and found the Tudor House and gardens. Lobby is small so if many people waiting to depart or get a room it could be standing room only or tight fit together. Would we stay here again. Depends on price and if we need to be in Georgetown. Probably it is the best value for hotels in Georgetown I do not know but if yes then go there. Pool was clean as early in season helps I guess and there is a 'lifeguard'. It is not a bad hotel by any means but compared to the Holiday Inn White Central it is much less of a elegant feeling that is for sure and we paid less a night for the Holiday Inn Central White House. We chose to stay in different parts of DC to get an over all feeling and glad we did as we enjoyed the 2 days there. We also stayed at Marriott Dulles as my husband had business meeting there for a couple of days. See that review and one of Holiday Inn White House Central.
A reasonably priced, clean Hotel. Very Friendly staff, especially the Concierge who would go out of his way to help. The room was a good sized room and the cleaners were very friendly and did a great job. The restraunt was decently priced and the food tasted good. The only bad thing I can think of with this hotel is the price of a beer in the bar, more expensive than most. Great location, a short walk into the centre of Georgetown and a bus journey to Washington DC Mall.
I have been staying here at least twice a year for the last 10 years, on one occasion stayed for 3 weeks on a business trip.
Have always found the hotel rooms to be clean and spacious, ( depending on your luck, some are very spacious with sofa). The restaurant is not particulary good though but there are loads of places to eat in Georgetown about a 25 minute walk or 5 minute taxis ride. Overall no real complaints...best bit stop by in the bar and get Sandy to pour you a beer, it always tastes better when she pours it!!
Thought it was great
Was a little skeptical reading some of the negative reviews, but I was happily surprised. Just stayed for a night but I thought the rooms were clean, staff was friendly and the rates are reasonable. I would stay here again.
What a disappointment
We stayed at the hotel in August.The moment you walked in the door you knew it was going to be a bomb.The elevators smelled like pee and the over all appearance of the hotel was dated and shabby.The pool was so dirty we didn't allow the kids to go for a swim.We had a family room which was a good size but was dark and the bathrooms were very dated and shabby as well.We will not be returning to this hotel any time soon.
We stayed here for 3 nights in Late June 03. Our room was large, clean and tidy but very dark. They need to look at the lighting. We found the front desk people rude and not really wanting to help. The free bus to and from Froggy Bottom was great, very easy to get into Washington DC.
I booked 2 rooms at the Holiday Inn in Georgetown, Washington D.C. for 3 nights, the first nite at one rate which was a Sat nite and graduating higher each consecutive nite thru Hotels... The front desk clerk informed me on arrival that I would have gotten the rooms for the lowest price all 3 nites if I would have called them direct. A savings of over 200.00. An irate traveler
