        The hospitality was wonderful here; after we'd been ripped off (sad to admit) by taxi drivers who stole our information from the real don carlos shuttle and claimed to be them (DC offers a shuttle from the airport to hotel for a reasonable price), the manager actually took that amount of money off of our bill since he felt bad for us and for some reason even seemed to give us a discount on the stay. I was not expecting such great customer service! The hotel room was clean and the breakfast (free) was just fine. I'd definitely stay here again.

        ... We had to pass the time till the bus left somehow!

        Back in the city we went to the supermarket (it was quiet exciting
        actually as I found hummus for the first time in 9mths!) and then got
        soaked walking 3blocks bk to the hostel.

        I spent the evening on trashy websites and watching E! and The big

After negotiating co-operation, I came back with 3 garbage bags, 4 brooms and buckets. In an hour we had made a huge impact and it looks so much better.
