Experience a Night of Music at Free Jazz Concerts Near Luxury Hotel in Washington, D.C.

At the JW Marriott Washington, DC, the City's Best Attractions Are Just a Package Deal Away

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 08/05/14 -- With winter now a chilly memory, travelers are rediscovering the many attractions that make Washington, D.C. a premier destination. Yes, there is the White House, but there are also exciting seasonal events like the free jazz concerts held at the National Gallery of Art's Sculpture Garden. And whether visitors attend these shows for the sculpture, the music or just a fun night out, the JW Marriott Washington, DC has both the location and the package to make the evening one to remember.

The Jazz in the Garden Series kicked off its fourteenth season in May and will enchant audiences from all over the globe through August 29, 2014. Artists representing styles as diverse as salsa, blues fusion and Afrofunk perform every Friday evening from 5 to 8:30 p.m., free of charge. As the audience drinks in the music, they can also snack on a special menu of salads, sandwiches and appetizers, courtesy of Pavilion Café, and wash it all down with a glass of sangria, light wine or draft beer.

Guests who check into this hotel near the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. will find themselves steps away from more than just the concerts. The property's convenient location lends itself well to its Destination Discovery package, which includes two passes on the Old Town Trolley. Trolley riders enjoy unprecedented access to more than 100 points of interest, from the Lincoln Memorial to the Supreme Court. And with just 20 stops on a tour, the Trolley's hop-on, hop-off approach to sightseeing means travelers can explore the places they most want to see.

The package also includes breakfast for two and accommodations within one of the finest luxury hotels in downtown Washington, D.C. Families will appreciate the spacious suites, for example, which feature Plug-In Panels and 37-inch, LCD HD televisions. Staying connected is easy with features like these -- the TVs can connect to laptops, MP3 players and digital cameras so friends at home can, with a few deft uploads, see your adventures for themselves.

With three restaurants (including Starbucks) and a fitness center, this National Mall hotel has all the right amenities to make a visit feel both productive and pleasurable. After all, other Washington, D.C. hotels near the White House may share this property's location, but no other can match its luxury or the convenience of its Destination Discovery package, two features that will leave guests calling for an encore.

Guests may secure the Destination Discovery package by calling 1-888-667-0713 and using the promotional code ARN. The package is available Fridays to Sundays through December 31, 2014.
