The best hotel deals in Washington
- by admin
A couple dozen people are lined up outside a Washington DC hotel’s barber shop.
They’re trying to find a way to stay together.
This isn’t the first time that the barber, James McNeil, has seen the same story play out across the nation.
McNeil has been a regular at this same hotel since he opened his first shop in the early 1990s, and he knows the hotel’s business model from the inside out.
The hotel’s reputation as the place to be has led to its continued popularity among international travelers, but McNeil says he can see the hotel as a way of making money for himself as well.
“It’s not going to be an overnight success,” he said.
The hotel opened its doors in 1993, and McNeil and his wife have been in the business since the early 1980s.
As the oldest business in Washington DC, the hotel has become known for being a place for people to meet up and socialize, and a place where locals gather to talk about the local issues.
McNeil says the hotel isn’t going away anytime soon.
He sees a shift coming to the hotel, though, as people are starting to think twice before staying at the hotel.
A shift in attitudes?
“I’m not sure how much of that is happening now.
I’m sure people are still going to come and spend time with their friends and have a good time,” McNeil said.
But the hotel is seeing an influx of foreign guests, and the popularity of the hotel continues to grow.
The Washington hotel has been one of the most popular tourist destinations in Washington.
The hotel has drawn a steady stream of tourists to the area.
The city is home to more than half a million people, but there are also more than 200,000 international visitors.
With a population of about 6.4 million, Washington DC has about 1,500 hotel rooms per night, and it’s an area where there is a strong cultural and social component to its tourism industry.
McNeil has seen a lot of the same stories play out in the past, including a story of a man who was unable to book a room at the Washington hotel because he had to get an additional $3,000 to pay for the rental car.
McNeill says that in the future, it will be more important for hotel owners to think about how they can help foreign visitors feel welcomed.
“There’s a lot more people coming in and spending money and spending time with people who are more of a ‘normal’ kind of traveler, and I think that’s what’s going to change,” he added.
“It’s going, I think, to be more about being a hotel.”
