Mom and Russ were able to stay in the Marriott Tyson's Corner which was 3 blocks from my current residence - they loved it, and we were all happy to see that they got a courtesy upgrade to a Suite! This meant some extra luxury, extra space, and the feeling of being pampered. What a nice surprise, huh? Russ said the bed was comfy, and I can attest to the couch comfort because on Saturday night I stayed there with them so we could maximize the vacation :-) It was in that extra side room so there was privacy, but I think we were all so tired from walking around Mt Vernon and ALexandria on Saturday day that we could have slept through snoring or thunderstorms! We really enjoyed Alexandria, including a tour boat ride on the Potomac, and touring Mt Vernon was quite nice. Educational and pretty! We ended the evening with a big Irish meal at a pub on King Street - good times.
