Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We came here just to have a drink and read about the history. The watergate hotel didn’t serve drinks until the evening so we found a nice cafe. We read through the watergate scandal which was interesting as we’ve never appreciated exactly what happened then.

    Are you tired after frolicking all across the capital city of the United States? If yes, you would surely enjoy a relaxing walk or nap in the Potomac Park. Like the name suggests you, this park is close to the Potomac River. I also found some little pagodas and, if you come during spring, you can admire a magnificent cherry blossom, just like in Japan!

    This is a very interesting house with a history that is not known by many of the people who visit. All of the rooms are beautiful and I learn a lot that I did not know about the history of my new country!

    This park is stunningly beautiful in March & April, when the magnolia trees bloom. It’s a charming park, located in the DC neighborhood of Foggy Bottom, where one can peacefully get away from the crowds who are adoring the equally stunning cherry blossoms nearby. (Both trees are uniquely spectacular specimens each spring!) This green space has a tranquil water pond & park benches for relaxing, while taking in the beauty which surrounds you. And now for a little history on this park’s bronze... The bronze sculpture of John Aaron Rawlins rests on a granite base. It is one of the city’s Civil War monuments which were collectively listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is also one of the few Civil War monuments that is not an equestrian sculpture. Historians consider this particular statue to be one of the better portrait statues in Washington, D.C. Rawlins was a native of the state of Illinois & a lawyer who organized the 45th Illinois Infantry for the Union Army during the Civil War. He was the closest advisor to General Ulysses S Grant during the war. And after being elected into office, President Grant appointed Rawlins as his Secretary of War of the USA. Rawlins spoke passionately about the plight of recently freed slaves & he tried to protect Native Americans. He accomplished much good in his life, before dying of tuberculosis at a young age (1831–1869).

    This is a nice church in DC, in the Foggy-Bottom neighborhood. It's close to the Foggy Bottom-GWU metro station and nearby the university and hospital as well.

    A great way to see the highlights of the National Mall as you get round so quickly and effortlessly.
    We have Segways before so found getting back on one very easy. Some of the group were novices but all the staff worked together in the store to make sure everyone was confidence and comfortable before we headed out onto the street.
    The tour leader gave a running commentary via the ear-set so even if the group spread out a bit you could hear him clearly at all times.
    The commentary was a perfect mix of real facts and information mixed with fun facts and anecdotes that kept everyone informed and entertained.
    Would we do it again? Yes, Yes & Yes.

    Superb morning tour of the Capital with Joe. He was knowledgeable, accommodating, a great teacher on the segways and helped us to tick off all the sights we wanted to see plus many more. My husband and I really enjoyed the whole thing and from initial booking through to handing back the segways at the end of the tour we had a seamless experience.
