Cherry Blossoms and Capitol Hill Hotel Stay – Washington DC.
Late last month Mike and I headed to Washington DC to experience the Cherry Tree’s in bloom. Something that had been on my bucket list for a bit of time. We stayed at the Capitol Hill Hotel, in Capitol Hill. We usually stay in Dupont Circle, so this was something different for us. We loved it. It’s much more like a quaint neighborhood feel, with cute shops nearby. The hotel is amazing. Each room has ample seating, you know that’s high on my list of wants, and a kitchenette with frig and microwave, which was perfect for my Snap Kitchen meals.
The hotel as an excellent location only a few minutes walk from Union Station
Close to the Metro, and within walking distance of all the sights. Saturday I walked all the way from the hotel to the
Tidal Basin, passing many of the great Smithsonian Museums, which were only minutes away from the Capitol Hill Hotel. See the red bikes next to the hotel in the above photo. Free to the guests. Over the weekend I saw a lot of guests use them. The staff was really amazing. Everyone seemed to be checking in at once, 7PM, after making the drive down from the North. Traffic was a nightmare, people were cranky, but the staff was amazing, really they were.
Within blocks begins lot of the tourist destinations that you want to see while youre in DC. How about the Capitol itself. This is the podium where the press conferences are held, and these electrical boxes are where the media plugs in their cameras and mic’s to record the pressers.
Not within walking distance, but easily to get to by Metro, cab or car. The National Zoo. It’s free, it’s not crowded and you’ll get to see the Giant Panda’s. All in all I realized I need to visit Washington DC more. There is so much to do and see, and lots of attractions that are free, which is great on a families wallet. Another thing that’s great – The Capitol Hill Hotel – spacious, kitchens, closet space, ironing board, continental breakfast, wine happy hours, exercise room. valet parking $50 with in and out privileges – that’s huge, and close to eateries, shopping and bars.
Thanks to the Capitol Hill Hotel for hosting me and letting me be an #IC_connoisseur for the weekend and taking over their social media to chat about my stay.
