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?

I spent this weekend visiting my friends Grace and Louisa in DC and have come to the decision, even after such a short visit, that I love this city. It's a very European-style city with no building allowed to be taller than the block is long. We spent Saturday trekking around the city and taking the usual tourist photographs, visiting the White House, Lincoln memorial, the monument and the parks that are in full fall ...

I really enjoyed my time in Washington DC but boy are we tired! We have done so much and seen so many amazing things it feels like we need a holiday from our holiday! We spent five full days in DC and there is still lots we didn’t see!
It started off well with a relaxing drink down by the river in a bar, where we were both asked for ID for the first time since arriving in the US. We then spent our first full day wandering ...
... back to the Metro, then took it back to the Vienna station where we left the car earlier in the day, and then headed back to Adam & Teresa's where we called it a day (after doing a couple loads of clothes).
Aside from the weather, we had a really nice day in Washington, DC. We only scratched the surface (if even that!) of what we could have seen. This city warrants a heck of a lot more time than we gave it. But we knew there wouldn't be enough ...
... Hubble, Skylab and the Apollo 11 lander, as well as lots of other fascinating stuff. We then opted for the Holocaust museum, despite having both done the requisite museums in Europe and some of the camps themselves. The tone was oddly different - somewhat sober and explanatory, but on the other hand obsessed with using it as an example for future generations not to repeat. Not to knock it, but I feel there was a whiff of accusation ...
... 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. The museum was brilliant, we had it virtually to ourselves, the only way it could have been better was if they allowed us to get inside the planes and space shuttle. One of ...
