The Westin Washington Dulles Airport
Travel Blogs from Herndon
It's been a while since I last wrote a blog and truthfully not much of interest has happened since the last entry. I have been a bachelor for about 3 weeks while Isa was visiting her mother and brother in France. During that time I had the opportunity to check out a few more local "happy hours" and one is worth writing a few words about. That is …
... a complete rip-off. I might look for a self parking place tomorrow. More tired from the drive than I expected because of the traffic, we didn't head out to see any sites but instead walked over to Whole Foods on P Street to stock up. Interestingly our room didn't come with a mini-fridge but the hotel was happy to bring one up when I called them about it. The guy who brought up our fridge was trying to wait for a tip but I decided not to give ...
... a little bit. Steven drove, and I slept ;-) it'll learn me to drink a whole pint of Guinness!
It was a warm, sunny and very nice day!
Tomorrow they expect 25 degrees Celsuis! What for a country is this? ;-)
Pictures? I need to upload them, tomorrow probably!

Woke up early and headed down to the impressive church towards the center of the old part of Reykjavik. It's a very prominent part of Reykjavik seeing as there are almost no buildings of significant height in the town except or a few hotels and apartment buildings along the coast. They were conducting a funeral so the inside was closed. I made my way own the cobble stone and occasionally paved street down towards the city center. I stopped at a ...
... And likewise, the view from the steps on the back of the Lincoln Memorial out on the river is great, perfect to watch the sunset. After a few hours, we called it a day and headed back to shore.
After having kayaked around Theodore Roosevelt Island, I wanted to go back and explore the island for a bit. To get there you have to take a metro to Rosslyn then cross a walking bridge to the island. The island ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Westin Washington Dulles Airport Herndon
The Westin is convenient to Dulles-less than a 5 min drive. The hotel is located in a residential area so there is a lack of restaurants unless you have a car. If you have a car the good news is they have free parking and there are some places to eat I the area...check Yelp. The parking garage is attached to the hotel so you have easy access.
The downside.....I can't believe that they charge for WIFI and the charge is $9.99 per day...are you kidding? Even the cheapest of hotels have free WIFI...in today's world that's like charging for TV. I am sure that I am not the only one who gets pissed when you are paying premium rates and then they rip you for something as common and free as WIFI....WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?
