Visitors to Washington DC can make great day use of Wingate by Wyndham Springfield’s conveniently close location and hourly rooms. Those staying in day rooms have a broad selection of restaurants from which to choose, and free Wi-Fi when in the hotel itself. Further afield there’s the world class museum complex of the Smithsonian, live performance venues, and a zoo complete with big cats and elephants.
Range of Restaurants – Traditional Yemeni fare is yours to enjoy at Marib Restaurant, the walls of which are decorated with tasteful art. Family-owned Eleni’s Greek Taverna serves up not just Greek treats but American dishes, or if you prefer a Mexican menu head for El Paso Mexican Restaurant. Thai temptations including noodles, green curry, and other traditional dishes are on offer at Thai Ghang Waan, with other styles available locally including Italian, Vietnamese, and South African.
National Zoo – To the northeast, day visitors with a fondness for wildlife can admire the residents of National Zoo. Lions and tigers are amongst the most popular beasts, as are enormous elephants and mischievous monkeys. Not to mention delightful pandas. The zoo’s atop a hill and should take a few hours to see everything, so be ready to stretch your legs.
The Smithsonian – This complex of museums has something for just about everyone. The National Air and Space Museum is one of the city’s highlights, featuring exhibits on the history of both Earth-bound flight and travel beyond our world. Nearby, the artistically inclined can peruse the galleries of the American Art Museum, which also houses the National Portrait Gallery. Meanwhile, the National Museum of Natural History has exhibits varying from glittering gemstones to awe-inspiring dinosaurs.
Live Performances – A variety of live entertainment is hosted by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, including plays, music, and dance shows, so be sure to check what’s on when you’re in town. In addition, the venue is also home to art tours.
