Three days in Washington DC

A travel blog entry by kirstyandtom on Jul 11, 2014

... the documents. This was both really enjoyed this. We spent a good few hours here so afterwards it was early evening so we had the 'delight' of food shopping. On our way we got caught in a bit of thunderstorm (I literally hate thunder) however it was not too bad as it did not last very long.
The following day, we had another busy day planned. We started with the American history museum which was really good. It had a lot about ...

... a woman and her 2 young kids, and 2 young men.
This area, LeDroit park, developed in 1873, is part of U Street/Cardozo and was one of the first suburbs of DC. Although slightly too far to walk to everything we want, it has a lot of really interesting and diverse architecture with several dominant variations. It was developed and marketed as a "romantic" neighborhood with narrow tree-lined streets. Extensive focus on the landscaping of this neighborhood ...

Sunday on the Mall

A travel blog entry by rhidianmorgan on May 11, 2014

This was the last day of my little break but Helen has the whole week off. Lucky girl. On a sunny Sunday in DC it good to take a leisurely stroll around the memorials on and around the mall. So this was our plan today. Ok I've done it many times but it's good nonetheless. Today is scorching and there's a bunch of people with the same idea as us. So after a pleasant day as a tourist, we head up to Rockiville to change hotels for the working ...

MISSION THREE: HELP THE HOMELESS

... about Richmond.

I arrived in Washington, DC, early in the morning. About six months earlier I had only driven through the Capital Hill area following along highway I-95. But coming into the massive Union Station by bus is a whole other experience. I went outside and noticed how spread out the entire city really was. Having traveled to NYC many times I was use to the long drawn city blocks, but ...

... Monument which is 555 feet 5 and 1/8 inches high. No building in Washington is allowed to be taller than this monument, by law. It was the world's tallest building in 1898 but the Eiffel Tower overtook it in 1899, We had lunch at the bottom of the Lincoln Monument. This is very impressive and was built in 1922. It has the names of 48 States around the top - Alaska and Hawaii were purchased later. Many, many steps at the front of the Monument at ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The George Washington DC

    Would recommend, but a few concerns

    from

    Stayed at the George for 4 nights over Memorial Day weekend.

    The positives: Cool, modern decor, friendly if a bit reserved staff, spacious room, large bathroom, nicely appointed with robes, Aveda products, free high speed internet access, excellent breakfast. Because it is small, it does feel intimate and quiet, a definite contrast to the hustle and bustle of the Hyatt down the street.

    The negatives: The walls are thin! We could hear our neighbors TV every morning. No views or balcony, somewhat questionable neighborhood-we preferred to walk 3 blocks out of our way to avoid E St. and New Jersey at night due to aggressive panhandling. No conveniences nearby, i.e. drug store/convenience store to buy water, film, forgotten items or coffee shops. Also just a few restaraunts nearby.

    We found a coffee stand inside the Hyatt one block away as well as a gift shop-convenient but pricey. $4.50 for a Latte, $5 for scones, muffins, etc.

    We would stay again unless we could get a similar rate at the Monaco, which is much closer to the heart of things.

    Enjoyed the very modern Hotel George.

    from

    I am 13, and we have stayed at alot of hotels with my family. We have stayed at 5 stars to types like the Holiday Inn. I give Hotel George a 9 out of 10. The rooms were spacious and comfortable for the 5 of us. We had 2 beds and a sleeper sofa. The staff was very child friendly, and they let us play their grand piano. And best of all, they have high speed internet accessible from the rooms. The bathrooms were very nicely done with a marble shower and a tub. This is a great hotel to stay at. It's a very quiet hotel in a central location right next to Union Square. It's also close to the Capitol building. We didn't try eating at the resteraunt so no comment there. Our view overlooked a parking lot, but that was alright since we weren't in the room alot. They also had a billards room -pool. We really enjoyed our stay there.

    Loved the hotel,but check your credit card statement!!!

    from

    We stayed at the George between Christmas and New year 2003.Everything about the trip was great until i got my credit card statement last week!The hotel George charged my card for 4 nights accomodation even thought I was on a package with a UK tour operator.I e-mailed the george only to be fed a line about it being the tour operators fault and that I should chase the tour operator for a refund.

    Thompsons holidays have so far been fantastic in sorting out the problem,the george have stopped replying to my e-mails.

    I'll keep you posted!

    Pretty good, except for the restaurant

    from

    Spent 4 days during Easter at George. It was generally a very pleasant experience, from check-in to check-out. My partner and I signed up for the Undercover Package, which included tickets to the Intl Spy Museum, and a quiz which promised a bottle of wine from New Zealand upon successful completion. Well, we didn't get all the answers correct, but the staff was nice enough to give it to us anyway (although the wine really wasn't much to shout about).

    The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and funky. Especially liked the picture of GW above the bed. Aveda bath products were a nice touch too. Pity the room didn't offer much of a view. And the Capitol building could not be seen from the billiards room as touted.

    The only real blemish of my Hotel George experience was lunch at the Bistro Bis. Having read much about it (made it into various top xx lists), our expectations were naturally high. Unfortunately, the seafood soup I had didn't offer much in terms of seafood, and the trout was bland and bitter. I could only eat half before I called it quits. The manager was decent enough to cancel my order and offer me a drink, but seeing the dismal state of my partner's Bloody Mary, I decided against that.

    Cherry Blossoms at The George

    from

    Staff was first rate. They took care of all our requests with a positive can do attitude. They met all their commitments and followed up in a professional manner.

    Location was awesome. We were a short walk to the Capitol, the mall with all the Smithsonian museums and great restaurants. Charlie Palmer's is 5 minutes away.

    Room was hip and spacious. Gym was fine for a small hotel. Billiard room great. Bis restaurant was a happening nightspot.

    Will stay there again.

    Mixed Feelings

    from

    Well, the rooms were beautiful, and all in all my stay was lovely.

    However, when I booked with central reservations, they made a reservation for the previous weekend instead of the weekend I was meant to stay. This took hours on the phone to get no show changes off my card, and to get a room booked for the correct weekend. Plus, I had asked for a room with a bathtub, and it took them three tries to finally find a room with a tub. The management while very nice, doesn't seem to be very organized, and made a simple mistake into something very confusing. The hotel is beautiful though, and extremely convenient (it's a block from union station) however I think next time, I would make my reservations with the in-house reservation people rather than central reservations.

    Great choice

    from

    Hotel George is very modern, contemporary and well worth all the hype.

    We had first heard about the hotel on the Discovery channel's travel show. The room was clean, large, a home away from home. I especially loved the bathroom and the nice products. The service was courtesy and you can't beat the restaurant. Very pricey but the endive salad is to die for.

    Hotel George is also just a few minutes from the metro which my husband and I found very convenient. You can get downtown from the metro station. At night, the location is very quiet so you might consider that when you book.

    Loved The George

    from

    We have stayed at several Washington DC hotels in the last three years, but we have found our favorite. We had a wonderful three night stay here. The staff was very helpful; in some cases they literally came running to be of service. The location is ideal. It is only a short walk to the Capitol and the Mall and very close to Union Station. There is an attention to detail at this hotel that we have come to expect in a first class hotel. Good linens, good room service, Aveda bath products. We will definately stay here again.

    Very stylish, convenient location

    from

    Stayed here as part of a conference, so rooms were half-price. Unlike the chain hotels, this place had attractive, comfortable rooms with more than adequate lighting. The in-house restaurant is on the expensive side, but there Union Station is close by and it has both a food court (which I tend not to care for) and a Metro stop. I don't know if I'd stay here at the full room rate, which is over $300/night, but they do have weekend deals.

    The staff was also very helpful, and whole place was well-maintained.

    Will not give refund

    from

    In sept. 2002, I was charged for a hotel room even though my reservation was for Oct. 10th. I phoned when this showed up on by bank account and began a hopeless effort to get this money back. We stayed at the George from the 10th of Oct. until the 12th and paid in full. Never the less, we have been unable to get the George Hotel to refund our money that was obtained wrongfully.
