ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - Apr 1, 2014) - Deciding where to go for Spring Break can involve discussions that have more gravity than UN peace talks. Older kids want entertainment, younger kids want excitement and parents want to avoid any place where they have to feign enthusiasm over actors wearing cartoon-character costumes. Although meeting these collective demands may seem impossible, there is, like those peace talks, always a solution. In fact, there are three of them, and they're all located in Arlington.
This spring, the Key Bridge Marriott, Crystal Gateway Marriott and Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel are welcoming families with kid-friendly amenities (all three Arlington hotels have indoor pools, for example) and locations that put a wide range of activities within easy reach. That means no matter which hotel in downtown Arlington, VA that family travelers book, they will have no shortage of fun things to do.
Visitors at the Key Bridge Marriott, for example, are just across the river from Georgetown. As a result, the parents can look forward to shopping among charming boutiques and admiring historic architecture, while kids can count on recreating a classic moment from American history on the Potomac. Who, after all, can't imagine himself as George Washington during a boat ride or canoe rental on the river?
But in the Arlington area, there's no shortage of sparks for imagination. Mount Vernon offers a first-hand look at the restored home of our country's favorite president, while visiting the Iwo Jima Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery lends an authenticity to what kids may have only ever read about in history books. Plus the many iconic destinations within Washington, D.C. (think the National Mall, White House, Lincoln Memorial, museums and the National Zoo) are all just a short and easy Metro ride away.
Just as families can pick and choose among area attractions, they can find which of the three unique properties might best accommodate them. The Key Bridge Marriott, for example, attracts families with its 582 spacious guest rooms and suites, plug-in technology panels and 37-inch, flat-panel, LCD HDTVs. The Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel, on the other hand, extends a stylish, LEED Gold-certified welcome to guests, along with access to its on-site SOCCi, one of the best Italian restaurants in Arlington, VA. (Guests can count on visiting the restaurant more than once thanks to its mouthwatering menu of pastas, steaks and world-class wines.) The Crystal Gateway Marriott, meanwhile, can't be beat for convenience. Not only do its guest rooms feature deluxe bedding and marble finishes in the bathrooms, but visitors can access the Metro from the hotel's lobby, putting all of D.C. within steps of every guest.
While each of the Arlington, VA hotel offers brings something different to the table, all the properties enjoy convenient access to the Reagan National Airport and major DC entryways, including the GW Parkway and Interstate 395. That means getting to Arlington can be just as pleasant -- even with kids in tow -- as staying there.
