Overnight Trip Report


We stayed at the Hamilton Crown Plaza, which I scored for $99 a night through a TravelZoo deal. We found it to be good for the price. Unfortunately, they were doing renovations so we got to hear the lovely sounds of a nail gun at 9am but we were already up. They gave no warning of this at check in which sort of put me off. However, the location and the price made up for all that.

We took the Amtrak in from Manhattan and checked out the Holocaust Museum and The Mall today. There is still another installment which I hope to get to tomorrow.

Thanks as always for all the helpful advice!! You guys rock!

Here is the last day! We visited Arlington and the National Museum of American History on this day! We had a blast in DC and it is such a nice overnight trip from NYC.

Hey SueFee! Glad to see you still on the DC forums and giving invaluable advice!!
