... what he ordered people to do was far worse then I ever thought. They had models of the gas chambers and it was bigger then I thought. You walked through a room which was full of old shoes, all dusty and dirty and burnt, it was the representation of the pile of shoes left by those marched into the chambers after they were told to strip off for what they thought was a shower. They had incinerators to show the streamline of the clean up after the mass gassing. ...

... chicken and watched people struggle with their inside out umbrellas.

Our night was made just right when we arrived by cab to our hotel to find the place swarming with police officers and the foyer cordoned off! Our natural curiosity was bettered only by our desire not to get shot, so we went and locked our room door, and even with "hill street blues" going on right outside, we fell asleep pretty quickly.

... next hour wandering around looking for one of those frozen yogurt shops and wondering why so many people sit in D.C. traffic. I later met up with some fellow Sun King people in Dupont Circle who happen to be in town for a beer event. Veggie tacos, a beer, some lava cake, and some small talk with a Kentucky alum (yeah...I know) rounded off my day.

More to see tomorrow. I will try to be better with the pictures. ...

... around. I asked the secret service guy if we could take a photo in front of his car! The Presidential/ Goverment/ Important people helicopter flew past several times when we were there - its pretty cool to see as well. From there we went to a couple more museums. Saw Dorothy's red ruby slippers and the American Flag of Independence. That was a wonderful exhibit, no photos permitted though. Headed towards the Spy Museum. The kids went to that but Dave and I thought it ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Washington, D.C. City Center Washington DC

    Good hotel in great location

    from

    I stayed at the Westin City Center for two nights. It has been fully refurbished up to Westin standards--athough a little minor painting, etc was will going on as it converts from being a Wyndom. The location is great and I found the staff very helpful. I stay at Westins all the time and the concierge and staff were more responsive. than what I have experienced at other hotels Its a great location for business in downtown DC.

    Magnífico alojamiento rápido

    from

    Hicimos un vuelo nocturno y solo necesitábamos un lugar para hacer una siesta y asearnos. Las camas eran muy confortables y las toallas eran afelpadas y suaves. El hotel nos cobró la tarifa diaria para aparcar nuestro coche. Habitación de un buen tamaño. Nuestra habitación estaba en el piso superior. Tenía un balcón mirando al atrio y también una vista bonita desde la ventana del frente. Solo quisiese que nos hubiéramos quedado más tiempo.

    Great Quick Stay

    from

    We had an overnight flight and just needed a place to take a nap and clean up. The beds were very comfortable and the towels were fluffy and soft. The hotel only charged us for a day rate to park our car. Nice size room. Our room was on the top floor with a balcony overlooking the atrium and a nice view from the front window as well. Only wished we would have stayed longer.

    Perfect for what we needed

    from

    Perfect location and price for what we needed. Six blocks from the White House and Monuments, two blocks from the Metro, four block from Adams Morgan. Avis Rental Car center three blocks away, and a starbucks on every surrounding corner! Hotel was typical of all Westins - comfortable, clean, stylish, great bed. Concierge was very helpful also.

    Perfecto para nuestras necesidades

    from

    Ubicación perfecta para nuestras necesidades. A seis cuadras de la Casa Blanca y los monumentos, dos del metro y cuatro de Adams Morgan. La agencia de alquiler de Vehículos Avis está a tres cuadras, ¡y hay un Starbucks en cada esquina circundante! El hotel es un Westin típico - confortable, limpio, de estilo, con una cama óptima. El conserje también era óptimo.

    Great Location and Staff -- Horrible Hidden Expenses

    from

    The Westin Hotel on 1400 M Street, is in a great location, however I encountered many issues as soon as we got there on Friday May 25th, 2007. We got to the hotel, received our room keys and went to our room. There was only 1 bed, when I specifically requested 2 double beds since there were 2 adults, and 2 kids. When we returned to the front desk with all of our luggage, we were given another room. We went back up the elevator to this new room, the room had 2 double beds -- however it was already OCCUPIED!, how embarrassing! I told my husband and the kids to stay on the floor while I went down to get yet another room, I received another key on a different floor, opened the door and once again only 1 bed, in a tiny room. I returned back to the front desk, and was told that they had no more rooms with double beds, and if it would be ok for the kids to sleep on 1 rollaway cot (the kids are 10 and 11) Since it didn't seem like I had a choice, I said OK, while the front desk agent went to check to see if there were any rollaways, another agent/manager was helping some other people with rooms with 2 beds and I asked her if she could help us, and she did. I finally ended up with a room with 2 double beds.

    Endless Problems

    from

    The problems started right from the beginning. For starters, this hotel is now a "Westin". Got no advance warning of this change, and ended up wasting time trying to get to the correct hotel.

    Good, Renovations almost complete

    from

    Formerly the Wyndham: 4/24-25 & renovations were still ongoing in small section of lobby & some of the room floors, but not too noisy or distracting; rest of hotel was complete & very nice. We stayed 2 nts in double/double room that was just completed. Room was lovely with great view of Thomas Circle & both churches. Great beds but room was a bit cramped with 2 beds, chair, ottoman & side table plus desk/TV/bar along opposite wall. Updated standard bathroom with new granite counter with rack shelves underneath for convenient storage (nice feature). King rooms had better layout & more open space due to having only one bed. Good location (5 blocks up from White House) & convenient to public transportation. Concierge, Lynn Jason, knows her stuff & is very helpful. Staff service at all levels was wonderful. On site restaurant is average for this type hotel, which means it was good but not outstanding, with the exception being the breakfast buffet, which had a large selection & was very good (came with room).
