Trip Report Joe Tro's DC trip report

Jump to last reply

Thanks for all the feedback on my earlier post. Here's my trip report, day by day.

Day 1 (Jan 2nd)

I arrived at Reagan from Dallas on American. I was lucky to use miles from my family, which meant priority access, an exit row, and no bag fees. I was in heaven. The flight was really great, except for no plugs that would take my computer adaptor, so I only got like 20 minutes of interview prep. time in

Took a cab to the Marriott Courtyard US Capitol hotel. Fare was $19 including cab. I landed at 2:10 and was unpacked by 3, so it was a breeze. The check-in lady spent 10 minutes fawning over a rapper who was just checking out ahead of me, so that could have been a bit smoother.

I'd originally planned to go to the Smithsonian, but being NY holiday, I wasn't sure if it was even open. I walked a bit around the NoMa area, discovered that even in a clearly transitional area, one complex wanted at leat $1850 for a studio, and cried. The location is basically connected with a metro stop, which is great, but it's rather dead here. Maybe it will be better on a workday. The decor, room, lobby, etc. are all super nice, so that's a plus.

Did work here in the hotel until meeting a friend at Woodley Park metro. We ate at a hole in the wall pizza place basically at the station (maybe called like Italian Pizza Kitchen). It was okay. Got out for $20 including my small pizza, flatbread and a soft drink.

Walked from WP to Cleveland Park on Connecticut. I so adored this area - so many great buildings and facades, so I was a bit disappointed I hadn't gotten off of my booty earlier to see it in the daytime. I can definitely see why this area is so nice and will probably be out of my price range.

Tomorrow I interview until 1, and I'm planning on going to the Phillips, walking around Dupont/Logan/Adams-Morgan, and meeting my good friend at his Logan Condo to explore further and to go to a gay bar. I'll report back.
