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 …
... close by...Nandos! In the afternoon we went to Capitol Hill, (such a beautiful building), and then on to the United States Botanical Garden, and finally the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. It was then time to set off on the long, and very sore walk back to the hotel! We were lazy at tea time and just ordered a pizza to our room! We have already walked nearly 20 miles over the passed two days, so roll on tomorrow for the next 10 ...
... about a quid a ride,) I have met up with 2 Aussie guys, bout my age, so we left the youngsters to their own devices while we walked along the beach, there is some kind of construction going on, some religious thing going on, it looks quite substantial for a temporary thing, (haven’t seen much in the way of these protests either)
We stopped off at a beachside bar for a beer, the beach is a lot better than Bali, the sand is actually sand and soft and ...
For my first day in the national capital, my host family wanted to show me how to take the metro and all the directions to go to the museum and the town. I'm really lucky. Marie took the time to explain to me where each metro circuit go. Then, thanks to her, I know approximately which station I need to take to go some places as the big mall, my museum and the White house too. Of course, I will take the initiative to go there by ...
... and listen to air traffic control. I'm surprised they still allow people to go up there with the way security is but it was cool to see. A couple of kids were in their element screaming with excitement every time a plane landed, dressed in their flight suits, very cute.

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?
