... to go out to Woodley Park. Upon arrival we were greeted with 2 non functioning escalators. Both of which should have been taking passengers up to the surface. The down escalator was working but everyone going up had to hike straight up 204 feet (I wikipediaed the station out of curiosity, this also is equivilent to about 10 stories). Needless to say Caroline and I were suffering from Jelly-Legs when we reached the surface.

... have learning difficulties or not. Their commitment to delivering the curriculum through the arts and high interest academic clubs was also admirable. The greatest challenge for trying to implement something similar in the NZ state school context would of course be resourcing the high level of staffing required. I am convinced however, there are aspects of the Lab School's approach that could work in our context and this is something I'd like to explore in the ...
Today was another fun filled day! We were up at 4 and out the door by 5 in Baltimore. We caught another Amtrak to Washington D.C. and were here by 7 this morning! We went to drop our bag off at the hotel but they said they had empty rooms and we could already check in! Then the real adventure started. Our hotel is about a mile away from the National Mall and we decided to walk there. On the way we stopped to take pictures ...
Today was my final full day in D.C. The more I am here the more I like it!
First up was brunch with a friend I met while we were both teaching English in France. We haven't seen each other since 2007 and we had a really good time catching up and reminiscing about our trips across Europe.
After brunch, Tammy and I walked to the Museum of American History so I could finally see those ruby slippers. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Twelve & K Hotel Washington DC
My family recently visited Washington DC. We picked the Four Points Sheraton because it had an indoor pool (rather rare) and a club floor.
Great hotel, not so great management. I was surprise to find out that on Friday and Saturday this hotel's lobby turns into a drag-queen club were hordes of drag queens and I am talking butt-cheeks hanging out of their clothes, hang-out. If you have children you will have a lot of explaining to do! When I complained at the Front Desk. I was informed that on Fridays and Saturdays the ballroom becomes a "night club" by the name "Noche de Fuego" and it's mainly a homosexual party ran by the GM of the property. Therefore any complaints against the activities fall on deaf ears! I was staying on the second floor and the noise was unbearable, the room was vibrating from the pulse of the music downstairs. When I asked if I could be moved the front desk staff informed me that the hotel was sold-out. I did not sleep all night because the "club" does not stop until 3:00am. The noise was deafening.
I stayed at the Four Points over three days for a conference. When I got to the desk, they didn't have the room I had reserved. After a slight complaint, they gave me another room and knocked $30 off the price. The Room was really nice. Quite large and on the corner of the hotel. All the standard comforts were there, plus a newspaper in the morning and a robe in the closet. As for the Hotel, I was very surprised. There's an indoor pool and outdoor deck on the roof. The lobby is immaculate and the staff very attentive. I've always thought of this chain as standard business-class fare, but I wouldn't hesitate to stay here for pleasure as well.
I stayed here with two 16 year old boys. The pool was small but was used by one of the boys; it's nice to be able to leave the room and have a place to sit and read for a bit. The room was comfortable, not real big, but good. The location was great. We did a lot of walking and also used the Metro to get around. We only stayed for a weekend, so we had lots to see in that short time and the location of this hotel was convenient. There is a quick breakfast place across the street for weekdays and a McDonald's a few blocks away for weekends. We also found Capitol Brew Pub close by for inexpensive and enjoyable dinners. The staff members of the hotel were pleasant and friendly. I would stay here again!
Had a few days in Washington last summer. I normally backpack and stay in Hostels, but this was a quick break from work so I decided to treat myself for the first couple of nights! Found a great rate on the Starwood website. Hotel was clean, with a very nice sized room. Staff were very friendly. This was my first US hotel experience (although I've spent a lot of nights in business-y hotels in the UK) and it was very pleasant. The hotel is located in a quiet area, not a lot going on at night but it seemed safe. Only a short walk from a Metro station, so it was quick and easy to get around on public transport. All in all I'd highly recommend this hotel - it's not flashy, but it does everything well.
Very good price/quality ratio
Just back from DC where we spent a night at the 4 Point: very good service and what good pillows
Recently stayed here as a last resort as all my normal choices were fully booked....have to say I was very pleased with the experience. I agree with a previous reviewer -the bed was very comfortable, plus the funiture was new a clean. No flaws to be seen in the bathroom either.
Room tend to be on the small side. The only service flaw I experienced was not being offered or even considered for a room upgrade as a spg member.
I had a business trip to D.C. and found a good rate for a club room, so I reserved it online. Even though I had my room confirmed and I am "Preferred guest" (doh) I was checked in a standard room. When I saw the room, I complained but wasn't given any explanation. The receptionist offered me two "GREAT" choices: a downgrade to standard adjusting my rate, or a club room the day after (PAYING FOR CLUB ALSO THAT NIGHT). I stated my choice had been and was "club" for every single day, so finally, after some more discussion I got my room.
I stayed here for 4 nights during a business trip. The location is at 12th & K and very centrally located in downtown DC. Room service was timely and delicious; the furniture looks new; bed was firm; very cordial customer service; rate was very economical. Stay here...I recommend it!
Great location, comfort and value!
We were very pleased with the Sheraton Four Points in downtown D.C. The location worked out great--a few blocks from the Metro stop, walking distance to some sites, good breakfast place across the street (weekdays only), McDonalds a couple blocks away, department store nearby (handy because my daughter forgot her swimsuit), rental cars across the street...The room was small but very nice, and the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever experienced! We got a good room rate on-line, which made it even better. Based on the one day that we ate breakfast at the hotel, I'd only recommend doing that if you aren't in a hurry to start your day. Other than that, everything was great.
