With spring just around the corner, vacationers throughout the nation are looking forward to spring and summer getaways.

Travel Fun in the Washington DC Area

Travelers want to save money on vacation while not giving up the opportunity to create wonderful memories,” said Ralph Randall, the hotel’s general manager. “Staying at the DoubleTree gives Washington, DC travelers a name they know and trust.

With spring just around the corner, vacationers throughout the nation are looking forward to spring and summer getaways. One popular destination, especially among families, is the national’s capital. A growing trend for those that want to save money without cutting quality is staying just outside major cities – and Washington, DC is ideally situated for this type of trip. One close to the city option is the DoubleTree by Hilton Largo-Washington DC, located adjacent to the nation’s capital in Largo, Maryland. The hotel is managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts, an operator of over 100 hotels throughout North America, including 15 in the Washington, DC area.

When looking at the suburbs, there are a few key factors to consider. Transportation (and parking costs) to and from the city, things to do around the hotel in the evening, and the hotel and its amenities. “Travelers want to save money on vacation while not giving up the opportunity to create wonderful memories,” said Ralph Randall, the hotel’s general manager. “Staying at the DoubleTree gives Washington, DC travelers a name they know and trust.”

The hotel is located in Largo, MD, with easy access from all points via Washington, DC’s famous “beltway,” the highway that loops around the capital city. Additionally, the hotel provides complimentary parking for all their guests as well as complimentary shuttle to Metrorail’s two main lines that run directly into the city. This not only saves travelers thirty five dollars (or more) a night on parking, but gives them fast and direct access to the nation’s capital. Washington, DC is the ideal walking city and guests need not worry about driving in an area new to them. After a day of touring, guests can select from a variety of shopping and dining options just an easy drive from the hotel – or via complimentary hotel shuttle.

The Doubletree offers a unique perspective with its new Six Flags Stay & Play Package, which includes two Six Flag admission tickets per reservation and a parking voucher for Six Flags as well as breakfast buffet for two and even a welcome fun play kit for children.

“We always get great feedback from our guests when we include Six Flags in our packages,” said Randall. “This gives the kids a chance to splash around in the area’s most popular water and amusement park. It’s a great addition to visiting Washington, DC’s Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest museum complex which is free to all visitors.” The city also offers museums and attractions with fees, but far less than attractions in other cities. These include the Newseum, the Spy Museum, Madame Tussauds, a variety of city tours and others. The DoubleTree by Hilton also offers a variety of other packages that may be booked online or by phone, (301) 773-0700.

“Business travelers can also save money on their leisure travel by paying for rooms with their HHonors points they earned while on corporate travel,” said Randall. DoubleTree by Hilton Largo participate in the Hilton awards program. Advance reservations are required for many special rates and packages. Randall suggests the best way to save is to book early and be flexible with arrival dates. Sometimes just shifting one day, can mean a real savings based on the length of stay.
