The morning started with me leaving my wallet, filled with my ID, debit card and $300, at home, and my dad driving all the way back to get it, making me almost miss the plane. Note to self: don't finishing packing the morning your leaving. The plane from MV to Logan was boarded by 5 well-kept, middle-aged businessmen, armed with briefcases and …
... which was so cool cos we could see all around DC! Then we had to walk (according to google a ten min walk) for a million miles towards the Capitol building because they were closing off the building for a meeting ... Hoping that we would catch a glance of Obama we didn't mind. Alyssa had arranged for us to get a tour with one of her friends interns. So we had to go to a senators building to meet her, bearing in mind everyone is in suits and heels, converse and denim hot ...
... interesting, thought-provoking, baffling, and straight terrifying. Then in our individual program groups, we had professional career panels. For the Russian Kazan program we heard from three different professionals who use Russian in their job: a Foreign Service Officer, a Russian Museum Curator, and a Development Specialist for Cardno Emerging Markets U.S.A., Ltd. After the professional career panel, we heard from two CLS Kazan alumni. Their insight and tips were ...
... length of the memorial. You would walk through each term Roosevelt served and the stone structures and waterfalls would differ to reflect the key events and challenges for each term. It was very well done. I really enjoyed the sculptures too, I particularly enjoyed the fact that his dog was included – as did all the children visiting! I also think it is important to note that Eleanor Roosevelt was also cast in iron, she is ...
... only restaurant I came across was a burger joint. I really, really wasn't in the mood for a burger, so I passed it up, thinking that there had to be at least one more restaurant in between my hotel and I.
Spoiler: there wasn't.
So, I ended up going on my tour tonight with nothing in my stomach. Luckily for me, the tour was so engrossing that I forgot to be hungry. I got pictures of a bunch of memorials and buildings that are way prettier at ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Quincy Washington DC
The location of the Quincy is excellent....it is in the heart of the business district and the Metro is just a block away.
I lived in D.C. for years and recently had to travel back for business. I was planning on staying with a friend but at the last minute that fell through and I was forced to find a place on just a day's notice -- at the height of cherry blossom season! Tough assignment, but since I was on a limited budget and only needed two nights, I took a chance on the Quincy. I have to say, it worked out fabulously, as not only did I pay less than half I would most places, it was a very good experience.
Ich habe ein großartiges Angebot über das Internet gebucht. Nur $99/Nacht im Herzen des Geschäftsviertels in der Innenstadt von D.C. Am Anfang war ich etwas besorgt, wegen dem großartigen Preis (Zimmer in anderen Hotels hätten $300/Nacht gekostet). Es war wundervoll. Die Zimmer waren nett, sauber und gemütlich. Das Personal war unglaublich - und das ist noch untertrieben. Jeder schien wirklich daran interessiert, gute Arbeit zu leisten und jeder gab gerne Ratschläge, wo man zum Essen hingehen kann wie auch Wegbeschreibungen.
I got a great deal on this hotel through Travelocity. Only $99/night in the heart of the business district in downtown DC. At first i was apprehensive because of the great price (everything else was going for $300/night or so). It was wonderful. Rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable. Staff was amazing - and that's an understatement. Everybody seemed to really care about their jobs and were very helpful with advice on places to go and eat, as well as give directions. The Location is perfect too. We literally walked everywhere! To all of the government sites, to eat, and to Georgetown. The hotel is also very close to a metro stop, which we took to and from the airport and also to the zoo. When i read reviews there were some complaints about noise (delivery trucks and downtown hustle) which we did experience slightly but it is not a big deal at all, especially considering all of the great features of the hotel. Besides, it's downtown - not the middle of nowhere?! So, I highly recommend this hotel!!
Not a bad little hotel. I traveled here with My wife and 3 sons for a long weekend in D.C. We arrived Thursday night and left Sunday Morning. Everyone and every brochure states continenteal breakfast and cookies. Alas they are no more. We inquired at the front desk and were told they don't provide any and weren't given any reason for the change. Our room was spacious with a kitchen that included a microwave and stove top with stove. Not as huge as some claim but larger than most recent rooms we've stayed at. The checkin staff didn't smile once but they were polite. The room needed some minor upkeep such as one wall border was not finished. And the bathroom door needed repainting. The rug had some stains that looked like varnishing or recent paining. All that is being picky. There was a coffee maker and a basket with coffee but only 1 sugar. The next night no additional sugar was provided and when we brought our own, no additional coffee was provided and our sugar disappeared. The basket was left in the bathroom that day. One towel had some yellow stains on it, looked like hard water/rust stains, so it became a floor towel. It was replaced and all others were sparkling clean. If you park your car you will be charged a nightly parking rate that is expansive 28 dollars and tax on that of 3.36. To go into and out of the garage you have to stop at the front desk pickup your key drop off your key and ask them to open the garage each time. A hassel for sure. The hotel is nicely seated 5 mintues from the White House and we walked to the Museums which are 1.5 miles away and walked most everywhere. There are restaurants on 19th and 18th street within walking distance. It's actually a nice stay for folks looking for a conveneint and comfortable place to stay, but if you are picky you might want to look elsewhere.
We stayed at the Quincy for one evening at the end of February. The staff was wonderfully friendly and helpful, and the hotel is centrally located to many, many things in DC. Overall, I would recommend it to friends. We liked the general layout of our room, and having a kitchenette was a nice amenity. Also, I loved the huge, fluffy towels!
We spent a week at The Quincy in Oct.2006 and had a nearly flawless experience!
This hotel is an excellent and safe choice at a good price! I traveled there with my 11 year old son. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The room was HUGE and nicely appointed, at a low rate of $99.00. The neighborhood was very safe and we walked to most restaurants. Try the quaint Italian restaurant around the corner called "Luigi's". Ben and Jerry's is a few blocks away. Here's a BIG tip: The taxi's are expensive, but there is one way, THE BEST WAY to get around. His name is Mr. Foxx and he is a retired gentleman with his own cab who frequently parks outside of the Quincy. This was the BEST! Mr. Foxx will take you anywhere for a very reasonable price and will provide transport for you your entire trip for an overall fare. He can take you to the airport too. He even gave us a private, guided, all day tour of the best sites for a fraction of what is would cost to use a cab here and there. He has been in D.C. for a long time and will guide your tour and wait for you while you check out the scenes!!! Incredible! So, be sure to ask for Mr. Foxx. Tip #2: The hotel has certificates for the asking to the restaurant next door.Ask at the desk. It gives you a credit, so one of our breakfasts was free! The Irish pub in the hotel is definately for adults only, even though they offer food too. It is a smoking bar too, so we ventured elsewhere. The metro was close, but we never used it. Cabs are much quicker. Be sure to check out the FREE National Geographic building lobby too! It's close by. The only issue we had was with the Pay-per-view movies at the hotel. They malfunctioned in the middle and we had to get a credit. The staff was very pleasant about the issue, and said the problems were temporary. Maybe by the time you get there, these problems will have been fixed. We will be at the Quincy next year too I assure you!
