Hotel:Washington Marriott Wardman Park Would I stay again? Yes but would not be my first choice. It is a huge hotel with tons of event space. I prefer something smaller.
Dinner:La Tomate Bistro Would I dine again? Probably not. The food was good but the service was absolutely terrible.
Dinner Day 2: China Chilcano Would I dine again? Yes, Yes, Yes. All the plates we had were awesome. Surprisingly, my favorite was the cauliflower.
Dinner Day 3: Bistro du Coin Would I dine again? Yes, Almost every year I attend a conference at the Washington Hilton right up the street and the food is consistently good. Plus, who can turn down a great bowl of mussels?
Hotel:Sheraton Clayton Plaza Hotel St. Louis Upgrade: Yes but lounge is nothing special Would I stay again? Probably not. The parking garage was not convenient (come in at the top level and go down two levels to exit on a one way street, bottom levels were quite dark and as a woman, not the safest feeling. Rooms were outdated and I prefer something more modern and clean. If you must, location was central and you can walk to restaurants in Clayton.
Lunch:Yellowbelly Would I dine again? Yes. Brussels were awesome and the toast was quite interesting.

Dinner:Billie|Jean Would I dine again? Yes. Solo diner so I had a great seat at the bar and saw all the food being prepared and plated. The eggplant was awesome although the soup would not be my first choice. Wish I had been hungrier – the short rib looked amazing.

Lunch:Sugarfire Smokehouse Would I dine again? Yes – Second time to this spot! I was late to the airport so I got this to go and had a good meal on the plane!
