... bread and were not charged for it. Brought home most of the garlic bread as well as most of the pasta and tomato sauce after I had eaten the mussels and clams out of their shells. It was the only poor service I have received anywhere in the US. Should have reduced the tip.
Got home about 9.30. Early to bed for an early start tomorrow. Unfortunately it was hot and hard to sleep until about midnight.
... museum, the Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary. This was a working pharmacy from the 1850s to 1930s. The family went bust in the great depression and sold the whole works to the city conservation body who just kept everything as is. The obligatory tour was conducted by a strange strange woman.

Oh course we asked them a lot of questions including what they wanted 4th graders to know about their job. They explained to us that they assist each state in coming up with policies and standards that are best for each state. Each state passes the policies down to school districts, like ...
... from here in Southport, North Carolina, it feels very similar to that of the small coastal town in Revenge. To my surprise Revenge isn't filmed in the Hamptons. (Side note: It's filmed in California. There is no actual Grayson Mansion. Instead, the interior and exterior of the house is a photoshopped mash up of a fictitious architectural design and a mansion in North Carolina).

It's not far from there to the White house so I walked past the duck pond and surprisingly massive Washington Monument (currently decked out in some funky lego-like scaffolding which lights up at night) to take the requisite 'selfie facing the south ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel George, a Kimpton Hotel Washington DC
Stayed at the George for 4 nights over Memorial Day weekend.
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!!!
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!
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).
Cherry Blossoms at The George
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.
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.
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
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
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
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.
