A June 2002 trip
to Washington, D.C. by Reidie
Quote: Business in Washington, D.C. is always laced with pleasure as you experience shopping, dining, and entertainment in the nation's capital.
DC always has plays and events, and Rockdale Park was offering free Shakespeare in the Park tickets. The play was well-acted and worth the visit to this open-air theater. The meal at Chuck's Steakhouse was a highlight for me. The food was delicious.
Ford Theater is a great place to see if you are interested in history. You will feel like you are in the theater with Lincoln as you absorb the facts and information of where and when he was shot. The box where he was sitting is decorated with mostly original furnishings and will take you back to the Civil War period. Across the street is the house where he was taken after the shooting.
Check out the concierge at the motel. They have maps of sights and restaurants that make getting to where you want to go easy.
Read the guidebooks in the room. This information lets you know what's out there to see and do.
The hotel boasts a food court as well as several restaurants, convenience stores, shopping boutiques, and a post office. Conference facilities and meeting rooms are well organized. The concierge is helpful and taxi service is readily available. A nice place to stay when in DC.
It's near the MCI Center and the metro stops within two blocks. Ford Theater and the Spy Museum are both within walking distance and the metro makes all of DC at your fingertips.
