Urbana Executive Chef
DGS Delicatessen has a take on classic New York deli food that is always satisfying.
I can eat sushi any time, day or night, and Kaz Sushi Bistro is always a favorite of mine.
People & Culture Manager
The Sculpture Garden Ice Rink at the National Gallery of Art is a sure thing for family fun in the winter months.
When live music is calling me, I like to head to Black Cat on 14th Street

Before heading back to DC, I love to get a bite to eat at the The Original Pancake House.
DC is one of the best cities in America for cycling. My favorite trip is the Capital Crescent Trail - a tree lined bike ride gets you from the hotel to Bethesda, MD.
Shop & Eat at Pentagon Row - you will never be bored with 45 restaurants and retail stores to choose from, and even an outdoor ice rink.
The Shops at Georgetown and surrounding area give you plenty to do and beautiful scenery.

The Tabard Inn is one of the best brunch spots in the city, is just a ten minute walk from the hotel, and is located in a series of historic row houses.
The Hirshhorn, a modern art museum, is my favorite art museum in the city, which is located on the National Mall.
