They have a wonderful gift - shop. And visiting the house itself is traveling in time. Enjoy both the outside, and the inside.
Wonderful, and orderly and clean, be it in the summer or under the snow. Just sit, and enjoy.
Most distinguished bar. Staff at the counter is helpful and clever. Tables are mostly set quite apart, so you can enjoy a nice conversation.
The best of D.C., in my opinion, be it for shopping, eating or just window-shopping, whether in the summer or under the snow.
I have been a fan of the Law Library of Congress for the last twenty years, since my first visit. Staff is most helpful, at least in the Law section. Anything you need, from anywhere in the world, related to law, may be found there.
After renovation, the marble looks brand new. The whole place has a touch of mysticism. You can queue in order to sit in at a hearing. Many famous lawyers may be seen. Hidden gem: the restaurant downstairs: food is not expensive, and delicious. Staff, everywhere, including the bookshop, is superb.
This is where the Magna Carta (one of them) is kept. The place is a cathedral devoted to Constitutional history.
Any important embassy can be seen along this row. You can walk along it, or ask a cab driver to drive along it.
Unforgettable place to spend, for instance, a Saturday morning. Tennis shoes are not compulsory: you can keep your style wearing flats, and, perhaps, a hat in the summer.
Lovely house, full of family history. The Russian objects are a must. Lovely gift-store, good to find things to buy for your own home.
Lovely home, full of history. Lovely park around it. Good to spend a whole day, strolling around and enjoying a piece of history.
Lovely house, in the middle of Georgetown. Good to take pictures (or be pictured yourself) in such lovely gardens. Interiors are original style.
The most inviting museum I have been to, in the U.S. Staff is superb. The volunteer ladies who walk you around the place are most enchanting. The library is incredible. Do not forget to get a picture of you right there, surrounded by shelves and flags.
Probably the best hotel in D.C. Superb staff, great cookies at the reception in the afternoon, and unearthly housekeeping service. The kind of hotel in which you know there is a lot of service somewhere behind each square inch.
Nice pub, excellent Irish food, staff is OK, and an air of "congressmen" around. It gets crowded at non. For tourists and locals, alike.
Super French restaurant in D.C. It belongs to the Sofitel hotel. If they have the sampler, order it, and you may marvel at six or more different tiny dishes on a tray. The terrine is also excellent.
Unearthly, as if it were a dream. Each room is fabulously decorated, and the bathrooms are astonishing. Restaurant is unavoidable: enjoy the samplers. And if you get a table inside the kitchen, marvel at the cooking ballet.
Wonderful inn: everything is tasty. I loved the Armani style decorated suites. A place where to rest, hear the water, and do nothing. We all deserve it!
One of the best restaurants in D.C. Nothing is more traditional than this restaurant. There are various seating areas. The bar is also nice.
Excellent sea catch. But the last time we were there it was a bit over-priced. But many dishes can be shared. Staff is OK.
