We took our two girls 8 and 10 to DC for the first time. The hotel was surprisingly kid friendly. The doormen were incredibley helpful and patient as we unloaded the car. As we were checking in the concierge noticed we had children and came over to introduce a very well put together scavenger hunt that took us all over popular sites. It turned out to be a godsend as it kept the kids motivated to do lots of site seeing over a short period of time.....the prize at the end, a dip into the treasure chest. Very clever and much appreciated.
