... red phone box don't make up for how bad the UK embassy is, but I had a lot of fun playing guess-the-embassy-from-its-flag-and-arc hitectural-style on the way down. My personal favourite ID was of the embassy of the Marshall Islands. Yeah - I know their flag. I thoroughly enjoyed another 6-pack of corona and dinner at an Afghan restaurant to get over a hard day's walking.
On Saturday morning I said goodbye to my hosts. They have been wonderful, generous, ...
... it is a nice place you can your pay respects.
Oh it was also here, that I picked up a six pack of 7oz Budweiser beer, for less than $4 at the awesome supermarket right near our apartment! Man they know how to set up there supermarkets! But I gotta say, whole foods supermarkets a still my favourite so far.(also on the beer, three sips and the stubbie is gone!)
Speaking of Beer, I've been slowly making my way through local beers and foods, we have yet ...
We arrived into D.C at about 7pm and made our way to a lovely studio apartment near the waterfront area in the south west quadrant of Washington D.C. The apartment had a doorman so we felt a little bit special walking in! Upon unpacking my suitcase, I soon discovered a Customs slip stating they had searched my luggage- this would not be noteworthy except for the fact that this was the third time I had received this slip. That's a perfect record of 3 ...
... did! Starting off with the National Mall - no this is not a shopping mall, but rather a two mile stretch of Smithsonian museums (both sides of the street!) with the well known George Washington Monument towering down on all of it. Unfortunately there was quite a lot of construction going on around us as they are currently upgrading the lawns and walkways in the area so things weren't looking quite as plush as I'm told they usually do, but it was very impressive nonetheless. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Dupont Circle Hotel Washington DC
Great location and a fine hotel
While Jury's is an Irish chain, this Jury's is better than anything I've seen in Ireland! The location on Dupont Circle is excellent. And the quality of the rooms is top-notch. (Ask for a quiet room in the back if you want to avoid the noise from the Circle.) It's a perfect weekend hotel due to the steep weekend discounts and the local nightlife. I definitely will be back!
Was a great location for us. Convenient to the Metro, nice community. Hotel was extremely helpful, efficient and clean. Would definitely return or recommend Jurys to anyone. Thank you.
We went to a conference in DC and chose Jurys to save money and because of the internet access. I regretted that I didn't just stay at the conference hotel. On the positive side, the service was friendly, the high speed internet access worked and the rooms are clean and tastefully decorated though the bathroom was a little shabby. We received USA Today each weekday morning. On the downside, we had no hot water our first morning. They gave us access to another room so we could shower but the water pressure there was extremely low. Our room was uncomfortably small. I don't usually mind this but the bathroom sink was right next to the bed and there was no place to put the breakfast tray except for the desk on which we had our laptop. The bathroom was exceptionally small with less leg room in front of the toilet than an airline seat. A lot of rooms in this hotel have poor views, though not all. Overall, I felt I could have done better elsewhere.
Protesting in Style
We attended the Anti-war rally in D.C. on Sat., January 18, and stayed in Jury's Hotel on Dupont Circle that night. Excellent rate for a DC hotel; the service was excellent (often with an Irish accent), and the rooms comfortable. The hotel is located right on Dupont Circle, which could be loud, I suppose, during the summer when people are out on the street at all hours. But that cold, winter night, street noise was not a problem! It is perfectly located to enjoy this great part of town.
Its above average
We stayed the first week of October. The hotel is well ubicated for itīs value. Rooms are clean and small but O.K. for a short visit. Do not expect amenities, buy the neighberhood provides them pretty well. Do not make internationl calls or long distance...... as any hotel, extremly expensive. Bring your computer if you need access to internet .......... I will stay again if visiting Washington D. C.
Had a wonderful time at the Jurys Hotel. The room was very nice, the staff was outstanding, The restaurant excellent. This area of Washington DC is has a city park, and book store across the street of the hotel. I'll return.
They over charged me.
I really enjoyed the Hotel, and it's location in Dupont Circle is a very nice part of D.C.
However, the hotel charged me $15 a day, + tax for parking my car. The funny thing is, I didn't have a car while I visted the hotel. They also charged me for removing refeshments from the room refeshment center, I did not. I've called, I've sent letters, to no avail. They have not reversed the charges.
spent the weekend at Jurys Hotel, Washington, D.C. clean rooms, very friendly staff, good service no negatives at all. great resturant also.
An okay hotel. The rooms were nice and clean. The customer
service, however was horrible. We reserved the room online on one of the discount sites. After arriving to the hotel, the receptionist could not find our reservation. I pulled out my confirmation from the webpage, and 45 minutes later, they gave us a room. The receptionist was very snoody, and did not even appoligize for the inconvience. The room had two double beds when we asked for a kind size, and the view was of a dirty alley. I paid 85 dollars a night, which was worth the price. Its NOT worth 125 dollars, which is what they advertise.
Good experience. Hotel itself was fine, service friendly and good, everything clean and well maintained. Check-in and check-out both handled very quickly and efficiently, and with a smile that seemed more genuine than usual. Well worth the price, compared to some of the other options. This is a GREAT area to be hungry in. There are lots of smallish, inexpensive, informal and very good restaurants within a 5 block radius, several in a 1 block radius. Try going up Connecticut Av.
Ashamed to say I didn't try the in-hotel resturants, but the aromas were quite promising. Next time. And there will be a next time.
