Swoonfest Saturdays: 24 Hours in ~ Georgetown

Roll over the images above to see what 24 Hours in Georgetown was like! This is a new series that I have just launched. As many of you know, I travel quite a bit whether I am doing TV segments or appearances. In many cases, I don't get an awful lot of time to be in a city but I do end up going there quite a bit. So in reality, I have 24 hours to explore an area on my own. I kicked this series off with going to Georgetown as I was going to be in Baltimore the following day to do a segment. I wanted to spend 24 hours in this quaint area of DC to experience shopping, restaurants, bars and to pop in and out! I loved being able to have time in the city and you can see what I was up to! My coverage focuses on Georgetown and specifically M street which was a wealth of treasures (next time I will have to venture out a bit more and also tackle Wisconsin for great finds)! I also loved being hosted thanks to the Tourism Board of DC and the Fairmont Hotel!

Before getting into my stay, I have to say that there were 3 stores I enjoyed popping into that are an absolute must for you when you're in the Georgetown area:

* Wink - this store always has unique of the moment assortments from accessories to apparel.

* Hu's Shoes and Hu's Wear - these are two separate stores but on the same street, I love that in the clothing store there is the cutest dog that was there walking around - obsessed. As a Co-Founder and Creative Director of Shoe Week, there were so many drool worthy brands worth checking out!

* Charm - I love one of a kind items and knowing that what has been selected works together but it is all very unique, you'll find this here within their gifts and accessories!

The Fairmont Hotel is definitelty a luxe hotel that also has a great sense of zen while you're staying there. I truly enjoyed hanging out in the lobby as I held a few meetings and even recouped there. I also loved that there are a number of green initiatives that take place there including having their own bee keeper area upstairs and infusing this within lipbalms, their drinks and foods.The Juniper restaurant makes you feel like you're in the midst of a botanical oasis and with a menu that is locally grown (which is a huge selling point with me) did not disappoint.

I was super impressed by their gym as it was quite a huge space (I mean massive and a number of floors) with their personal gym area as well as Balance Fitness which is not only for hotel guests but also those outside of the hotel who live in the area can have memberships there. This gym is also quite a place for celebs to go to Nicholas Cage worked out there while he was working on the National Treasure movies as well as Arnold Schwarzenegger.

I do come to DC quite a bit now as I do segments in the area so it's important to find a hotel that I can stay in so that I can relax and prep. In addition, the more that I am in this city, I know that I want to learn more about it from shopping, historical locations and more! One of the packages that is taking place at this hotel right now is the Scandal Package (which is definitely a nod to the ABC show and Kerry Washington's character, Olivia Pope! You receive accommodations for two, info on being able to book one or two of the politically scandal focused tours, popcorn and red wine (snack like Olivia), a copy of Good Self, Bad Self by Judy Smith (she inspired the Olivia Pope character by Scandal) and an American breakfast for both of you at Juniper. The tours allow you to explore the juicy history of the Presidency, duels, bigamy, curses and more affairs that have taken place involving the White House each Thursday night at 7pm.

The Concierge will work with you on arranging the tours which are audio based and due to the nature of the topics discussed, I would suggest that it's not child friendly .This offer is available through the end of this year with rates starting at $249 per night and although it's great fun to get friends together to enjoy this with you, this package is not available to group bookings of 10 or more people.
