Assistant General Manager
Tsunami Lounge - After spending 3 plus years in Japan, I can be a little particular when it comes to Sushi and Sake, but the Tsunami Lounge never disappoints.
The Gibson - When I am in the mood for a great cocktail, this "speakeasy" makes the best cocktails in DC!!
Oriental Oasis Spa is great place to pamper yourself! They do awesome massage therapy and body treatments.
Vida Fitness on P. Street is a great gym in D.C. They have state of the art equipment, yoga studios, and the BEST Zumba instructors!
Director of Housekeeping
When I need to feel hip and experience something new, I run down to the 930 Club for a concert. Great venue!
The Verizon Center is great for all types of events, from a concert to a basketball game.
One of a kind
Nellie's Sports Bar - plenty of screens and every imaginable sports package will keep you connected to your favorite team.
Gravelly Point Park - a tiny park settled right on the end of the main runway at Airport; have a picnic or take a walk beside the river while watching the airplanes take off.
