Largest Jewish community is in Silver Spring, which is a suburb of Washington. For tourists, best place to stay is in downtown Silver Spring, which has a metro stop and a nearby  shul in Woodside Park within walking distance.

The shul website also has alot of helpful tourist information

Things to do
Washington Monument closed until Spring 2019

Flying in/out of BWI and going to a wedding sunday night in Baltimore, so D.C. is a bit of shlep, but worthwhile if the eateries can compete with Baltimore.

I can get a suite there without JS for $150+, but is it worth it when I have a free suite at the Fairmont?
Besides that I'm still not sure if I should base myself in DC or Baltimore...

Thanks.

Anyone have more info on the hashgocha for Soupergirl?  They claim it's Orthodox/Bishul Yisroel/Pas Yisroel?

So is he considered reliable?

Booked in a corner fairmont suite for $0.
Now I just need to figure out Monday lunch and dinner and Tuesday lunch and maybe a dinner to go.
And any easy activities with a baby that kvetches if he's not on an airplane :P

That depends on your standards, but he's definitely not charedi, nore like MO (he's a YU/REITS graduate).

Headed to DC next Wednesday for oral argument in the Supreme Court. Any good recommendations for kosher lunch near the Court, or near the Department of Justice building where I will be later in the afternoon.

Planning on doing c/p at the Westin DC City Center

No. I'm in a class at Columbia with Nat Lewin. Every year he arranges a trip to the Supreme Court and a visit with Justice Scalia and Solicitor General Verrilli.

Anyone ever stay at the Westin Georgetown?

Also interested in the Park Hyatt, but I can't seem to get a decent rate.

+1 although it is pretty reasonable on jet setter and they let me use a suite upgrade even though it was through jet setter (although my reservation was canceled by jet setter)
