Washington for a few days

A travel blog entry by wheresmisty


... the whole situation. Nice try on our part! Am sure we are on security videos.... We turned up in Washington DC and went directly to the famous Union Station to fro off the car. In fact, there were lots of famous places that we were going to be seeing for the next few days. We spent the afternoon walking around Washington, getting orientated and seeing some of the sights. We also booked onto a hop on hop off tour for the next couple of days. These were great in Boston and ...

... that the area I was going through wasn't the nicest of areas and this was proved further when I walked along and attached to the Washington Metro Police Department Recruitment Office was a Homicide branch!!! Thankfully it was still plenty of time until night time and it wasn't long before I was near the Stadium and as I was crossing the road what did I see but the offices of BAE Systems Inc. (all this way and I can't escape work!!!).

When I got to the Stadium ...

Washington DC-Niagara Falls

A travel blog entry by jenni_c_smith


... is loving it and he now understands why I banged on about the coffee that I had when deployed with the yanks in 2008. We picked and paid for all of our options for the rest of the trip. This was a good opportunity because of the long drive and we could ask questions. Ours all cost around $1900.00. We watched a couple of ads to help choose what we wanted to do and we watched a documentary about Niagra Falls and the people who had made the plunge to go over the top. The US ...

... this past semester. Special thanks to Farooq, my supervisor and director at Study Sparkz, for giving me the opportunity to work directly with you. The real-world experience that I took away from this semester is absolutely priceless. Also many thanks for serving as a mentor and resource for me. I’m so glad that I got the opportunity to know you. You do outstanding work and it was really an honor to be your intern. Of course, many thanks to Denis, for driving me safe from ...

Day 4 - DC to Gettysburg

A travel blog entry by jrammon


... The Farm" CIA Headquarters and more. The trees are still bare so we can see a fair bit around us. In another week or two the trees will be full of leaves and the cherry blossoms will be in full bloom. Many used the bus ride as an opportunity to catch up on some missing sleep. We arrived at the Gettysburg Visitors Center. We went straight into their video presentation. The story of the Gettysburg Battle is told. After the video we head upstair into the Cyclorama. A Cyclorama is a ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Homewood Suites Alexandria

    Very comfortable


    We were only able to stay here for one night but it was fantastic. The most wonderful pillows I have ever had -- and there are four on every bed.

    Very good location for getting into D.C. quickly. The breakfast they have in the morning is varied and very good.

    Great for families


    We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in early August. It is great for families because you have extra space in your room, a full kitchen, laundry facilities, 2 TVs in the room, etc. The overall appearance of the hotel was good, I think it is fairly new.

    Best Homewood Suites by far


    We stayed at this property the week before 4th of July. The room was extremely large--full kitchen, living area, seperate bedroom. Perfect when you are staying for 5 days. The good point of the room--seperate dressing/vanity area outside the shower room that could be closed off from the living area and the bedroom. A great advantage to let the kids sleep while you are getting ready. The rooms were quiet, also. The breakfast was large--great selections (not all "grown-up stuff" as my 7 yr. old said) and a well laid out flow to the breakfast. The two ladies in charge kept everything full and there were no waits for anything. It was a great advantage and budget saver to have the manager's reception in the evening (M-Thr). Usually, this means some veggies and dip but here it not only had veggies and dip, but a full salad bar, and a hot entree and side dish (veal parmigiana and rice, BBQ sandwiches and baked beans, hot open faced turkey sandwiches and mashed potatoes). This saved us a lot of money on food. The location was good. We were on the main drag to go to 395 and Washington.

    Beautiful Hotel


    My family and I stayed here for Father's Day weekend while visiting Washington DC. We had a 1 bedroom suite which was very spacious and modern. Housekeeping came in every day to make the beds and tidy up. The fitness area and hot tub were open 24 hours. The breakfasts were awesome. Not your typical continental breakfast, but a nice assortment of hot and cold food.

    This hotel is very convenient to DC. We got a good deal with a summer rate, but not sure I would care to spend what it typically costs to stay there, though if you can, it is DEFINITELY worth it.

    I left my cell phone charger in our room when we checked out and didn't realize it until we were half way home (PA). I called the next day and by the day after they had located it and mailed it back to me.

    Great Hotel in Alexandria!


    We stayed here during the Memorial for the Police. Great place! Friendly, professional staff attended to our every need without hesitation. The buffets were tasty and plentiful. The rooms were spotless and always tidied upon our return. Every request was met with courtesy and gracious manners. We really, really loved this hotel. (TIP: If you have your car, drive it to the Pentagon City Mall which is about 3 miles and park in the mall parking garage. Take the Pentagon City Mall Metro into D.C. and upon your return, purchase something at Macy's - they will validate your parking ticket and you will pay nothing for parking). Also, there's a great grocery store about 2 blocks away as well as a number of restaurants. We will definitely stay here again.

    Highly recommended - you get your money's worth and then some!


    We got a special deal on a room via the Hilton website for the holidays while we had relatives visiting from out of town. We spent every day in the hotel with them, and they simply loved it. Plenty of space, friendly staff, and tons of food at breakfast and during the manager's reception (they only paid for meals on weekends). Breakfast had eggs, sausage, cereal, pastries, waffles, french toast - not your standard continental, for certain. The evening 'reception' had veggies and dips, soup and salad bar, some prepared salads, and a main dish - sandwiches, hot dogs, chicken stir-fry, etc.

    Happy With My Stay


    I spent a Saturday night at this hotel in late October 2004. As it was the weekend, there was no Manager's Reception when I was there, and I do not offer that comment as a negative one. My stay was enjoyable. The hotel, and my room, were clean and quiet. I wanted a beer so I walked a few blocks down the hill to a 7-Eleven and took care of that. Note: the property is located in an area where I would not feel entirely comfortable walking at night. That having been said, I felt entirely safe at the hotel. The room was a large suite with a full kitchenette, i.e., 2-burner stove, dishwasher, sink, and refrigerator. The bed was firm and comfortable; the bathroom was clean. Free high-speed internet access was available in the room and it zipped along at the speed of a full T-1 connection. This location would not have been my first choice for a hotel room in Alexandria, however, I will say that I would stay here again.

    Fantastic for DC family vacation


    I stayed here on a vacation with my extended family, 6 adults and three children. I would highly recommend this hotel either for vacation or business.

    Highly recommend this hotel!!!


    This is the place to stay while visiting the DC area!We came here for a family vacation and absolutely loved this hotel!!! The hotel is beautiful and spotless. The atmosphere is homey. The breakfast is everything you can ask for to get your sightseeing off to a great start. The staff is pleasant and knowledgeable. The rooms are spacious and immaculate and accommadate five easily. The exercise room actually has equipment to provide for a full workout. The pool was always warm. The meal provided from 5-7:00 was beyond expectations. The extra touches this hotel provides such as warm cookies out of the oven make you feel right at home. Try it, you won't be disappointed!

    Homewood Suites top notch


    We spent four days at Homewood Suites in Alexandria and the four of us couldn't have been more pleased. Lovely room, everything there we needed, grandaughter loved the pool, breakfasts were great, as was the one evening meal. Friendly staff, would certainly stay here again and also - based on our experience - try another Homewood Suite. Great job, guys!!
