A couple of weeks ago, some girlfriends and I made a trip to Washington DC to see The Nutcracker Ballet, performed by the Washington Ballet, at the Warner Theatre.
After lunch and a bit of shopping, we checked into our hotel, The Crowne Plaza Hamilton, which is located on the corner of 14th and K. We could not have asked for a better hotel. The staff was very accommodating, the room was cozy, with just enough space for the three of us, and the location couldn't have been more perfect. We were literally only a few blocks away from the White House, as well as Warner Theatre, with loads of opportunity for food, shopping, and touristy attractions.
The theatre was only a few blocks away from our hotel, so it did't take us long at all to walk there - even in heels. It was a bit cold and windy, but I was equipped with my lambskin leather jacket and very thick tights, so I stayed rather cozy. The ballet was adorable - there were more children in it than I expected - but best of all, there was alcohol served! Score!
The following day we did a bit of sight seeing. We walked around The Mall and hit up the White House, before heading back to the hotel and checking out. However, on our way home, we headed back to McLean for a browse around Tiffany's, where I may or may not have made a couple of purchases. Merry Christmas to me!
