2017 Georgetown Move In Weekend Day 1

Over the summer, Sharon and I decided that both of us were going to go back with Jack to help him get moved in for his sophomore year at Georgetown.

Up at 4:20 am, Sharon, Jack and I were in the car by 5:00 am and on our way to the airport. We caught a 7:00 am Southwest Flight nonstop from Sacramento to Baltimore. Sharon and I have been arguing over the last few months about the merits of flying into Baltimore and then catching a cab to Washington DC. Although Jack did it once during the school year, this is the first time that we have tried it.

We landed at BWI a little after 3:00 pm. It took us almost 40 minutes to get off the plane and collect our luggage. We caught an Uber at 3:44 pm. We got to the Georgetown Marriot at 4:43 pm. It has taken almost an hour from Dulles [DCA] to the Georgetown Marriott.

Checking in and getting settled in the room, Sharon and I went down for a snack in the concierge lounge. We have stayed at this hotel a number of times. I really like the rooms and the lounge since the remodel.

We took a cab to dinner. Sharon made a reservation for dinner at Paleo. We ate there with Mary Maloney when we toured Washington DC in 2011. More recently, Sharon ate there with Mary in May when she picked Jack up. I was surprised that she didn't pick somewhere new. We spilt some shrimp and rabbit tapas. Overall, I was very underwhelmed by the food and the wine recommendation.

Catching an Uber back to the hotel, we finished the night watching the finale of season 7 of Game of Thrones.
