2022 DC 4th of July Trip Report

Washington Monument

We are on our way back from a great trip to DC for July 4th weekend. We visited our daughter who is interning for the summer in the nation’s capital.

We flew Delta first class as I used my Delta Reserve companion ticket. First Class was only about $100 more than main cabin per ticket so with a 2 for 1 ticket, it was worth paying for the guaranteed upgrade.

We stayed at two different Hyatts: the Park Hyatt, which was 17k points per night off-peak and where I used a Suite Upgrade Award to guarantee a suite, and the Grand Hyatt, where I used two expiring Hyatt free night certificates and we also got upgraded to a suite.

There are a few segments of this review trip including:

1. Flying Delta First Class During the Travel Chaos

2. Park Hyatt DC Review

3. Grand Hyatt DC Review

4. Visiting Smithsonian Museums

5. DC Restaurant Roundup

This is our last travel for the peak summer season. We’ll next be visiting Montreal over Labor Day.
