We arranged a weekend in Washington DC during a visit of several days in order to explore our favorite Smithsonian Museums. Unfortunately, due to the President's shutdown of federal offices and buildings, there was no access. We were left to recall vivid memories from earlier...More
This museum is fantastic if you wish to have an overview of the history of our American leaders. We were with an excellent docent who took us thru the American Art Gallery ,which is in one side of the same building, and then dropped us...More
The gallery is a great museum of art! I thought it was simply the place to see the presidential portraits, but it is much more.it is certainly American art, but terrific pieces. The wing with the presidential portraits was a surprise and filled with a...More
My friend and I went to see the new Obama paintings and enjoyed viewing all the presidential portraits. Especially loved the painting, The Four Justices, a portrait of the women who have served on the Supreme Court. This is a stop worth making when you...More
I hadn't been to the portrait gallery in a number of years and was blown away by what it contains. In addition to the presidential gallery of portraits and the highlight of the new Obama portraits, the second floor contains paintings and some photos of...More
Suites for 7 women on a reunion trip in D.C. (2 Replies)
We are looking to stay in D.C. near some good restaurants and want to go to the National Portrait Gallery among some other sites. We haven't been to D.C. together for many, many years. We would like to stay in several suite rooms for 2 nights. Any suites with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms? (4 women in 1 room with only 1 bathroom could be difficult)! If not, 2-3 suite rooms would work out too. Any suggestions would be helpful.

How about the St. Gregory? Typically attracts fewer families than the local Embassy Suites properties, so seems better suited for your girls'-getaway. You'll want to do some "comparison shopping" -- via, e.g., the Check Rates feature which accompanies its TA review: in the past year or so, the hotel's own web site has not always been the source of the lowest rates: tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g28970-d220076-…

Trip Report - 26th to 28th September (1 Replies)
I'm currently watching England playing France in the Rugby World Cup quarter final and it's not going well for us so I thought I'd finally post my TR. We arrived by Amtrak from Philly early afternoon and made our made through Union Station. I'd heard the station architecture is worth a look and as we were being directed to the metro and it's really just a vast corridor, I ducked out into the main station for a quick peek. On entering the metro station we immediately noticed how large and...More

March 23/24 likely to be very crowded? (1 Replies)
We've been considering visiting March 23-24 to see museums (such as National Gallery of Art, Freer, National Portrait Gallery), Capitol Hill, etc. I now see that those days are forecast to be peak Cherry Blossoms. Are museums, Capitol Hill, etc. likely to be very crowded as a result of the peak forecast, or are people visiting for Cherry Blossom season likely to stick to viewing cherry blossoms?

The crowds will be near the cherry blossoms. The other places will be fairly normal for a Spring weekend. Crowded, but not VERY crowded. I don't think the Freer is ever crowded. It isn't on most visitor's itinerary.
