Where I Stayed in Washington DC: Carlyle Suites Hotel

Carlyle Suites Hotel

The boyfriend and I decided a last-minute getaway to Washington DC when I sensed that he’s getting sick and tired of the very laidback atmosphere at my mother’s house. So one fine morning, we loaded our bags in our rented car and drove off to Washington DC.

Very confusing roads.

At USD95, we found Carlyle Suites Hotel’s rate as the cheapest with a good review for our last minute getaway so we immediately booked it for a night. It was the best decision ever! The hotel is not only cheap, it’s also in a very central location which is great for us since we’re staying in DC for only a day anyway. The rooms were huge and clean with a great view of the city.

The area where the hotel is located is safe and charming, lined up with trees and residential houses. Restaurants, cafes and malls are all walking distance from the hotel including some of the most famous tourist attractions in DC such as the White House. It took us no more than 25 minutes to reach this very famous residence, I wonder who lives there. Lol.

Dupont Circle is about 5 mins away on foot from Carlyle Suites Hotel.

We didn’t take breakfast from the hotel as we preferred to have it outside to be able to explore DC more. The one night stay that we had in Carlyle Suites Hotel was perfect mainly due to its location. The only thing that I didn’t like was the charge of USD39 per night for the parking which we will later find out is a lot cheaper than the parking charges in New York City. Lol.

    Good day! I meant to post this on your Greece tour. Anyway, we need your advise please. My partner and I are planning to visit Paris next year and apply for the Schengen via VFS Global. Will it be hard for us? As some say that France is costly and visas are harder to get from than other countries. As our basic is less than 5k aed. However, we currently have about 15kaed each on our bank accounts. Looking forward to your kind reply. Thank you!

      Only thing I can advise you is to try, there’s no harm in trying. Good luck. 🙂
