The Writer's Center: what do users think?


Ioana Stoica: The writing classes here are incredible. I've been taking classes since COVID - all online - and have done so in other places like famed Gotham Institute. The Writer's Center classes are far superior imo, because of the interaction they foster between students through the discussion boards, and because the instructors give such detailed and useful feedback. I especially recommend instructor Mathu Subramanian for her detailed suggestions.

Max Baskin: Good venue for theater. It would be five stars, but I get a little stuffy there sometimes, so I think the HVAC system may need some cleaning. Overall, cozy, intimate venue.

Brandon Johnson: A quite gem in Bethesda if you're looking to hone your craft or begin on a new adventure of writing. The staff is lovely if not a bit quiet but I think that adds to the writers feel. The teachers are professional and I learned a lot in the workshop I took.

Eugene Chay: Unbelievable to have a resource like this locally. It's underappreciated & underfunded, and that's a shame. The classes & instruction are top notch. If you care about writing and live in the area, sign up for a class!

Stuart Leviton: The Writer's Center is as good the Iowa City Writer's workshop.

Bryton Bode: Attended a show recently. Enjoyed it very much. Facilities, cast and crew were all great.

Matt R: Great organization with lots of resources and classes for writers, as well as an independent theater.

christine hall: A center for everyone adults and teens to achieve their. writting dreams

Karen Ed: Great experience.

Graduate School USA: what do users think?


Francesca Baldanzi: I called and write multiple times to get some information about a Grant Management certificate but nobody ever call me back or wrote me back. There is not enough information on the website and it is not clear. I ended up clicking on the enroll button to try to get some information about costs and it came a message saying that I’m enrolled in the program. I was nervous that I had to pay or required to do something. I wrote to ask that they remove me from their lists but nobody answered. Poor support service and orientation. I won’t bother waist if my time here.

Jennifer Champlin: My company chose this institution because I needed a course that relates to my job and they offered it sooner than my organization. They spend money to send me there but only authorize me to stay until the last day of the course as my company does not want to pay an additional night for the hotel to leave the following day. I leave the class early on the last day, as I told the instructor, and they refuse to issue the certificate even though the instructor agreed that my leaving early would be fine and they would mail the certificate. I emailed several people explaining this situation and no one has responded back and one person told me to refer to the rules and regulations page on their website. The certificate refusal needs to be on the registration page!!! Duh people! They do not honor agreements, nor are they customer oriented.

Anthony Johnson: I took an auditing course and I was extremely disappointed. The content of the course was dated and poorly organized. The instructor was never prepared and could not answer students’ questions. The instructor was supposedly a retired professional, however, that seemed far from the truth. The instructor was constantly confused by the content and would skip content that the instructor didn’t understand. Don’t waste your own or your agency’s money here.

Quenby Wilcox: Recently had training at this facility and lets just say everything is and was unorganized. Lets just start with calling into to register. I specifically spoke with a juanita who I later found never registered me for a Dc course but registered me for a san diego course. I showed up for a class just to later find out it was not offered in the dc location. Upset is an understatement . Never will attend this facility again .

Kevin T: Highly recommend institution and work-related programming.

Kevin Brackney: Good source for professional development for the federal employee.

B. W.: Tremendous school for instruction in government training.

Daygo Blasian: Horrible customer service, a product of their environment

Aletta Catoe: Great training and instructors!!

Charles Boozell: Nothing is five stars

826DC & Tivoli's Astounding Magic Supply: what do users think?


Spenser Villwock: Great organization. The magic shop is a social enterprise storefront with limited magic inventory, yet great for some magic gifts. Proceeds go to support 826DC, a writing center for talented and aspiring DC authors. You can purchase books from the authors in the Magic Supply storefront, as well. Five stars

Austin Piano: I walk into the magic shop and go up a set of stairs.My uncle asks, Where is the magic?The lady replies, right here, your in it. FYI It is an extremely tight and small space. Almost no magic there. I ask the lady Is there anything special about this magic wand? She says , no it's just magical. My uncle asks, so what's magical about it. The lady at the register replies, Its just a magic wand, not knowing what to say. In the store there were metal bent spoons that were supposed to have hinges for the proper magic trick but DIDN'T😬 There wer about 10 decks of cards but only two different types😡ALL of them were already opened except one. Then there was a thumb which was extremely big and hard. The better ones are rubber and smaller so that they can mold onto your hand.TERRIBLE... There were tokens for ONE DOLLAR to have a memorable experience but who is going to have a memorable experience at a place like that.And one dollar is expensive for a piece of plastic. The lady at the register half knew what she was doing and didn't know what to say. A quick thought: maybe she thought it sucked. They have a small bookshelf with a lot of books on stupid magic. My uncle asks, Do you have any how to books? She replies, what? He said How to books, like how to do something. She replied, NO. Out of ALL of the BOOKS they had, none of which were how to books.I will give this magic shop a one star rating and those are all the reasons why and they were very specific.WORST MAGIC SHOP EVER. I am an intermediate/advanced magician and can say that this is no magic shop for a begginer, intermediate, or advanced magician.

david kula: I was There 1.7.2017 11:20 It is a great shop for People Who dont want to buy anything... I asked for Cube 3 (rubiks cube) and they told me to buy it in a toy shop😂😂 (funny) and i asked for sponge balls and they told me That they Have only 1... Great shop, never never NEVER GO THERE!!!!

Pixl: I never bin there but I mite go today so what if it’s small it’s still something and only 1 sponge ball how is it there Daly this place sound like a fun place!

Sarah Richman: Tivoli's Astounding Magic Supply Co. is wonderful! I love that my purchases support writing programs for local students.

Virginia Lawson: Very welcoming staff helping a 5 year old find a trick he could do.

Jonathan Farley: What a great find. Come up and see for yourselves!

Paul Roberts: Great folk doing important work.

Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies: what do users think?


Hemant Gaule: Great institution, excellent faculty and resources available to students. A lot of impressive events and conferences are hosted at the institute.

Amy Friedlander: Like many others have said, the support staff, to include the Deans Office, is absolutely awful. Unhelpful, discourteous, unprofessional. I expected so much more from this institution, but the SCS is a disappointment and can only be described as a mediocre school at best.

Larry Poe: The classes and the professors are superlative. However, I concur with many comments here....THE SUPPORT STAFF SUCKS!!! You expect a lot more from the admissions office, registrar and folks that answer the phones (oh, by the way, if you call the SCS you usually receive the voice mail) when you pay 60K for a Master's degree. Georgetown is truly "resting on its laurels" and academic reputation in the customer service department. Every time I needed assistance from someone, it was as if I was asking for a favor and not paying for a service (lots of attitude and unhelpful comments). CUSTOMER SERVICE IS TRULY NOT A PRIORITY AT THIS INSTITUTION....
Response: Dear Larry, Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding Georgetown SCS’s Emergency & Disaster Management program in the Middle East. We’re sorry to hear that the student support services have not met your expectations thus far. We’d very much appreciate the opportunity to speak with you further about your experience and do what we can to help with any outstanding issues. A member of your program support team will be reaching out to you as soon as possible to arrange a time to discuss. Sincerely, Office of the Dean, SCS

Karina Valverde: I love being a student on campus again. In pursuit of my masters in Public Relations and Corporate Communications. This campus is for the grad school and certificate programs. The culture is professional, high caliber students.

Patrick Revord: Convenient location, beautiful building, great instruction and great classmates. Georgetown runs a class act, even away from its main campus.

Monica Puerto: I enrolled into the Data Science Certificate Program at Georgetown. It is a waste of money and your time unless you have a robust background in Python. Most students did not because this certificate program appears to help you turn into one. I have background in SQL and data analytics and was hoping to gather some skills to make me a data scientist. Although I understand that a certificate program can’t turn you into one (although the marketing and messaging of this makes it appear so with the “robust” curriculum). This was purely taught on slides and wish it was more hands on. It is very expensive and you don’t start learning till the 3rd class. The first class was an introduction on what is data science (around $900) for some powerpoint you could have read at home. Second class was to get into groups to create a data product on a process that you barely know about. I recommend General Assembly they are more hands on. Although they don’t have the prestigious name (which I think Georgetown takes advantage of to teach this way), you will learn more and actually do projects AFTER you learn the material. I thankfully dropped out and sadly was only refunded the classes I did not take although intro to data science and getting into groups does not feel like real classes..
Response: Dear Monica—Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding Georgetown SCS’s Data Science Certificate program. We’re sorry to hear that the program did not meet your expectations. We've received your feedback on the course and have worked to integrate improvements, including communicating the Python expectation and resources available to students. We invite you to speak further about your experience by contacting a staff member of the Center for Continuing and Professional Education by email at ccpeprograms@georgetown.edu or by calling 202-687-8128. Sincerely, Andrew (Office of the Dean, SCS Georgetown University)

Don Johnson: Thought Google users might enjoy seeing what this building looked like in 1919.(credit: Library of Congress)

Rose T.J. Perna: Georgetown SCS staff are unorganized, unresponsive and unprofessional. My son had a horrible experience with the administration. They do not return phone calls or emails. It may be an "elite school" but the SCS program has less than stellar staff and administration. I hope that they clean up quick, his actual program was very well and the insturctors were very qualified. But if you need a document or any type of administration assistance- you'd be better off going to another school.
Response: Hi Rose! Thank you for your message. We're sorry to hear about your experience. Thanks for being in touch so we were able to resolve your issue.

Gouled Hosh: I would like to study here for my EHLS program next year.

syed pervez: One of the best schools in DMV area.

Johns Hopkins University - Krieger School of Arts and Sciences - Advanced Academic Programs: what do users think?


Michael Sweet: The graduate school for arts and sciences at Hopkins is really solid.They only use PhDs as instructors in most programs, which is good. Many programs can be done fully online now too.The tuition is high, granted, but it's also one of the top 20 universities in the world! Unfortunately, the name on your diploma does matter.

cat wu: The Econ program is challenging and knowledgable. Though, the classroom equipments are not handy at all and the "library" is tinny tiny. Most of the lecturers are not full time professors, so the teaching quality varies.

Leo Dorsey: Excellent school with fantastic graduate degree programs in D.C.

Trinity Washington University: what do users think?


Ming Xia: Beautiful campus with magnificent buildings and statues. Of course you will see Nancy Pelosi's picture in the hallway of the main building!

Sharon Winget: The pool and gym are well equipped and clean. Locker room is spacious and clean. Friendly, welcoming place.

Betty Strickland: It was the best. My niece graduated in the top of here class. I'm so proud.

Chaturbhuj bhojwani: Excellent Education institute.

ANNA: I am a current student at Trinity Washington University and I definitely don’t feel the same way about this school, as i did a few months ago when I started. The school isn’t the worst but I would not say that you get the feeling of a good college experience. I am currently thinking about transferring to another school. So that I don’t create a long review for others to read I will give a bullet overview of what does on/why i want to leave: - The administration as a whole are not very cooperative, nor do they know how to really help you. Advisors just repeat the same information that you could have found in the Trinity website. - The food is NOT good. I have seen dining hall workers take food from the dining hall and take it over to the deli which is one building away and charge more for it. They give you a better sandwich if your using flex dollars, but they give a basic sandwich if your using your meal plan. - Security is not consistent, they pretty much let anyone on campus and don’t ask the necessary questions before having a car proceed to drop off/pick up or parking. - There are no water fountains in the freshman dorm, which i feel is a health hazard. I feel, if they can get a dollar out of me then they will. It’s either $1.25 - 1.75 for a bottle of water in the freshman building, and Laundry is $1.50 to dry and another $1.50 to dry. My first semester of freshman year it was clear that the dean didn’t like my professor so she would try and get us to say things negating about her, she would observe her teaching more than i’ve ever seen, and before the second semester was to start she quit. Trinity is nice in the brochures, and online, but if you come here you will soon realize unfortunately everything is not as it seems.

Malik Freeman: Beautiful campus just a few miles from DC. A great place to meet, eat and sleep.

Cristin Barnett: I've always struggled with academics, but my experience at Trinity was exceptional. The class sizes were much smaller than colleges I attended in the past. The environment was collaborative and engaging. I felt the teachers as well as the students wanted everyone to succeed. I am in the process of applying for my masters degree and didn't consider any other university. I'll continue my education at Trinity and would encourage my friends and colleagues to do the same.

Xavier Hodge: I have nothing nice at all to say about this awful school. Well, the professors are good and caring. The school administration is the worst! although I am only a few semesters away from graduating with a 3.8 GPA or better, I absolutely regret going here. I wish I could change my alma mater. I am ashamed of being a "soon to be" graduate from this school. I will NEVER recommend this place to a prospective student. I have NO desire to ever participate in any Trinity related alum activities... If they ever reach out to me, I will do all I can to NOT use profanity when saying "HELL NO!"

Hiwot Tadesse: the worst school i have ever been to. All they care about is the money they get from you. the staff are no help at all. community collage appears to be better. the professors are good but the people in the office are rude and mean and all they do is sit around while they drink coffee and talk about their personal life. for any question i asked the answer i got was "I dont know". i am glad i left when i had the chance.

n Jjo: I really thought coming to this school I was going to thrive and get my degree. However after coming here my experience is bad, the counselors here don't know how to help you. There are multiple things I could say about this school, however simply put this school is horrible. After barely finishing my first year here, I have fallen into a deep state of depression. Do not go here unless you live off campus, and even then make sure it is your last option .I have been going here and am finally about to transfer to Montgomery college just to get away from this school. Please listen and do not go here.

Georgetown University: what do users think?


Alex Kolkena: For the record, I didn't go to school here, but I've only heard good things. From a tourist's perspective, there's plenty of neat architecture on campus. It's in one of the older sections of Washington DC, so definitely worth checking out.

Da-Wang Wu: I have several talented colleagues who graduated from Georgetown University, so I always want to visit this school. The campus is very beautiful, especially with the fall foliage. It’s a nice half-day trip to visit the university, the shopping area (mainly on M Street), the canal and the waterfront park.

Danny L: Must place to visit if you are visiting DC. Lots of things to do around the university. Great place for photography and sightseeing. Plenty of Restaurants around that area. You would love it.

David Gilbank: I fulfilled a lifelong ambition when I came to Georgetown to see where The Exorcist was filmed. I particularly wanted to throw my self down the stairs that featured in the finale. Obviously that could cause terrible damage, so I through a soft toy down instead. See photos. Its a brilliant beautiful neighbourhood. Well worth a visit.

Mj Dillenburg: Great graduation ceremonies! Except for the 95 degree heat and humidity....it was beautiful.

Adnana K: I've had my last two kids here. They met all my needs in that time. Both C-sections were done perfectly. Two and a half days hospital stay. Recovery was very successfull. Staff was very friendly and professional. I highly recommend this hospital.

Russ Watts: Excellent university, superb perspective on the political realm, mindful about the Jesuit values.

Enric Piferrer Torres: We stopped for a quick walk around the university buildings, and it was worth it! It reminded me of Harry Potter somehow. Beautiful main building. We parked outside for free in a 2 hour parking (no meter). The neighborhood is beautiful too

Justin Ahearn: So charming and beautiful. Feel like I’m going to get culture of Washington DC and the people that I meet are great

lilian gonzalez: I do not come to school here but it's a must place to visit and see in person!!! The buildings are so beautiful and massive. It's breathtaking. The surrending place to grab food is amazing and you can bring it back and either sit in the rocking chairs or picnic tables they have or bring a blanket and lay under a tree and relax!! It's so nice!!

National Archives Research Center: what do users think?


Stacy A: Worth at least one visit to celebrate US history. See the Declaration of Independence, constitution, and bill of rights. Room is dark and cold to help with preservation. No photos allowed at all. Entry was simple enough once I found it and staff was quiet but helpful.

Shine Thomas: Washington DC is a land of museums. You have a lot of places to visit in DC which has a huge number of historical archives. This was one such place with a lot of artifact's to see. One would need around half a day to cover this place, that too if you do it in a hurry. The place has so many sculptures and paintings, including Ginevra de benci the only paining of Leonardo da Vinci in the United States of America.

Rodrigo Gonzalez: An impressive building which was made to preserve the national documents. In the exhibition, you can see The Constitution, The Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights. Congratulations to the staff and curators for such an impressive place. I recommend it.

Dez Davis: Beautiful building and so many things to look at. However, the security personnel are extremely rude and yell constantly. Also, it is a complete free for all to try and see the documents. Everybody crowds around the documents and stands there forever, not allowing anyone else to see the documents. Need to execute a better option of allowing everyone to see the documents fairly.

courtney edwards: The worst place I’ve visited in DC. The staff was rude and pushy with the exception of the employees working in the cafe. I highly recommend visiting the cafe. I was also locked in the building for 10+ and not permitted to leave due to an issue that was not disclosed to guests. I would go to anywhere in DC again except for the National Archives.

Matthew Miller: In reality, you could make a very quick trip here and only see the most important things here--The Constitution, The Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights. With a bit more time, there are other exhibits to see, especially if you are interested in the archiving process and what gets stored in the National Archives. For families with younger children the Boeing Learning Center is a nice place with activities and hands-on materials. The staff there are keen to explain things and are clearly devoted to their vocations.

John Neff: Security staff are a joke, while going through the security screening process two security staff screamed and yelled at my child. They soured what was an anticipated visit to see our nations founding documents into a terrible experience. The security staff needs to take a class on sensitivity training. What an embarrassment to our national treasures.

Wei Hsu: Amazing building and gorgeous architecture.

Nikoloz Gachechiladze: Considering that the place is free, it provides an amazing experience. You can see the originals of American Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence and Constitution all within 15 minutes, if you have planned your route. There are other interesting exhibits, but these three are highlights and definitely worth a visit.

Abigail Carroll: What an amazing place. Though the entrance is a little confusing. It was surreal to actually see The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, and The Bill of Rights with my own eyes. I wish we'd had more time to explore. Loved the gift shop

Praveen Sriram: Stayed here in the summer of 2005 for my internship in Washington DC and the experience was absolutely fabulous with the dining halls and the gym being my favorites. No complaints at all and excellent customer service from the residence hall staff. I sometimes wish I studied Accounting at this university than at the one I studied at. Great school and great residence halls. Highly recommend! A+

cat wu: It's an average college, no particular major that's really standout around the country or the world. Courses are not that challenged compare to some other higher ranking schools and that probably explains why graduates don't get the best careers, you get what you work for. One thing should be mentioned is that dorms have a lot of rats.

洪銘勳: I have received my master of law degree (international legal studies) from the Washington College of Law of this school. It’s a very internationalized and excellent university. I really miss it.

Santiago Tovar: My friend is away at a summer camp and given the precarious infrastructure of your so called "university" has no wifi. He is unable to communicate with friends and family. This is outrageous, its unfair. Please fix this ASAP.

Adam Cox: Graduated school here in 2005. Students are very engaged and staff friendly. Great place to study.

Gabrielle Thompson: Jacksfilms is a notable alum, and yet, I do not see his name. Therefore, I will not spend my valuable time or money on this university!

Sarah Ashworth: Loved my years at American!! Great diversity and learning community!

Igor Dorokhine: Priced at the level of Ivy League University but return is not at that level at all. BEWARE!

Madame Dabo: Today I went to drop off my niece who’s continuing her second year of pre-med. the experience was amazing. I love how supportive the staff is. They have smooth transition process during moving in season. They were very well organized and had keys, moving carts, parking permits and guidance everywhere. I noticed that minorities are the majority at Howard. Diversity is embraced and everyone is welcomed and respected. I loved how they have sanitation stations everywhere fondue to Covid-19. The application process is easy and they financial aid staff is very helpful. Howard university os affordable and well known school. The dorms are spacious and private. Kitchen is well organized and the bathroom is huge. Campus was a little crowded because it was moving in day, but it was so organized that by 2pm everyone was situated and the streets were cleaned. I recommend this university.

Monica White-Gant: I went to the dental school to be evaluated for new dentures. The students and professors are very knowledgeable. They treat you gently and respectfully. As they evaluate and work on you, they explain everything that they are doing. I've been going there off and on since the 1980's. They have walk-in service also. Call for information of days and times. Best of all the fees are very very reasonable. And if you need financial help they try to help you obtain it. Bottom line; help the students and help yourself.

Elizabeth Bobo: Howard University is in the process of changing, improving and increasing their level of services they offer their community. Good

Evens Dure: Took a snow day with my daughter she had a fantastic time. She enjoyed making improvements to some of the snowman the were constructed. Thank you HU!

Chenita Jasmine Amey (Nita): Love this place. Had a good experience here. Enjoyed the homecoming Saturday with my daughter. 💖💕💓❤🎈🎉🎉 I missed my high school's homecoming but enjoyed Howard's. Sorry DCs Dunbar had to go to the Mecca.

Baukran American made: I've been staying in the area of this school and I would describe myself as a good observer. If a school is a reflection of the students attending then I would say its top of the line. Every student I've come in contact with brief as it may be is very polite and respectful.

Jasmine Gilder: A lot of the buildings seem to be under construction. Overall, walking through the campus educated me on a few things that I didn’t know before.

U.S. Navy Museum: what do users think?


Ari Rang: I am interested in military history and especially Korean war. While visiting DC, we found this Navy Museum. It is not the easiest museum to get in because it is located in Navy yard. First you need to register at welcome center so you need passport with you or ID is ok if you are US citizen. Children do not need ID if with a parent. There were many workers going thru same background check process so be prepared to wait 30 to 60 minutes. People at the office were nice and waiting room has A/C. Museum is in two buildings. Main building has mostly WW2 history. Second building has nice stuff from Korean war and also a little from Vietnam. We found cold war exhibition pretty interesting. Gentleman at the main building was very helpful assisting us. There were no other tourists at that time so it sure was exclusive visit.

Adrian Nagle: What a gem! We made a point to visit here while in D.C. My daughter is a huge fan of World War II Naval history and this was the place to be for her. Much of the museum is dedicated to World War II. Many gun turrets are displayed (manufactured in the museum building?). There are displays for many aspects of the Navy in World War II including Midway, Coral Sea, Japanese artifacts, ship navigation, and large detailed models of various World Ware II ships. I learned many little insights at these displays. There is also early Navy history at the front of the museum. The fight top from USS Constitution, an example of USS Constitution gun deck and construction display are very interesting and educational. My only complaints are some artifacts could have more detail (some did have QR code to learn more!), and the models inside glass cases were difficult to see due to reflects from light sources and nearby museum artifacts. We were the only ones in attendance. It takes effort to register and access the Navy base to get to the museum. I recommend filling out paperwork from website ahead of time. If you are interested in Navy history, I highly recommend this location!

Jeff H: Tons of great information and exhibits and was not very busy. Only downside is the process of getting a day pass to get on the base.

Ted Kidwell: We love going here this a great military museum to visit they have so much to see and each time come back to hear the have new things to see. We have learned so much each time we go here. This a great place for the hole family. You will like it we do a must for history buffs and military history buffs. They have some very good staff there website's have lots of good information as well.

Michael Sawyer: This museum is on a secured base. Make sure if you are not a US citizen you bring your original passport and another ID or you are not allowed to enter. Went to check in turned in copies of passport and waited 15 minutes to be told the passports had to be original. Not sure why we were not told this as we got the paperwork that had to be filled out. If you are a US citizen 18 or older you need your drivers license and know social security number. Poor communication and should have been stated on the site. I’m sure the museum is great, but didn’t get to see it Hopefully this helps people visiting from other countries.

Beatriz Benjamim: A little bit tricky to get into the museum, you have to go all the way around the fence and search for the only available entrance. The staff is very nice and helpful. The shop closes at 2:30 p.m. so if you want to buy a souvenir, make sure you get there earlier. It is very detailed and has a lot of mini ships and boats. Make sure you also go to the submarine museum which is right next to it! Enjoy =)

Seth Freedman: My wife and I went down to DC to attend her cousin's wedding. We had such a great time at the Navy Yard. So many cool things to see. There is a lot of history here. I wanted to visit the Navy art gallery they have here but we didn't have the time. There's always next time. Just a side note you do need security clearance to get into this area. We plan on making a trip down for family vacation.

Barry Yen: Good and nice small museum

Robert Springer: This past Pearl Harbor Day (Dec. 7) I paid a visit to the National Museum of the US Navy at the Navy Shipyard in Washington DC. Built in 1799, the Shipyard is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and as a National Historic Landmark, and it is the oldest shore establishment in the US Navy. Being an active military installation, home to the Chief of Naval Operations and several other commands. You will need your identification and will have to pass a security screening to visit the museum. By DC standards it is a small but very interesting museum.

Jooma1572: Great Museums. Beginning of the Navy up to WWII in one building, Modern age in the other. Great models of lots of different ships and planes. Loved the informative displays and the staff was very friendly.

British Embassy Washington: what do users think?


Henry Myers: In 2018, future Royal guard Prince Henry present me with two sets of pictures revealing; "Elizabeth Barhite,"... Henry's 18k for coke wasn't good enough

Joanne Boice: I called with an important question today. The lady who answered couldn't have been nicer or more empathetic.

Sonny Ng: One of the larger embassy in DC, it's a labyrinth of stylish Georgian buildings, regal paintings and statues, even an ornate English garden in the back, definitely more than a pretty penny of prim and proper setting for teas and biscuits. The staff were polite and curt, kinda snotty in the subtle English way. I only did the visual superficial tour so can't testify to level of service provided by the embassy.

Andrea Rosario: As an American, I don't think I've ever experienced such an unresponsive embassy (the automated system literally hangs up on you). It intrigues me that British people put up with this kind of service.

gerard lyons: Had a great dinner here with wounded warriors foundation. The building itself is beautiful and teh Ambassador was a great host. His parents were visiting to from UK and we sat with them at dinner, such a fun older couple!

christine savage: Very un informal no help at all

Nadya Taylor: Wow. It is true that if I could leave negative stars I would do so. You can't speak to anyone on the phone, consulate transferred me to a message not a real person. When I emailed them with a simple question whether a green card holder would need a visa, they responded that they do not handle visa questions at Washington location and I can call and pay so much per minute plus a cost of phone call to get some help.

Matt Warren: No idea why so many of the reviews of this place are negative. I lost my passport and wallet whilst travelling the USA. Booked an appointment for an Emergency Passport online, followed the process and they even mailed me my Emergency Passport to a hotel I was staying at later on in my trip so that I could continue my plans. I had no issues using the Emergency Passport and the Embassy were even helpful and responsive to me when my scheduled flight out of Miami was cancelled (due to Hurricane Irma) and I had to get a flight out on a different date.

London Eevee Tokyo Ebisu - Swanslade 恵比寿-スワンズレイド: I like visiting the British Embassy, because we'll I am British and I live in New York. Whenever I'm in the Washington DC area I always visit. The place is excellent, clean, and the staff are polite. The building is beautiful too. I just don't get why everyone else has a problem!

Julie Kuhl: I have ONE simple question and what do I get? I get the worst British accent and a circle of nothing and I mean nothing. I need a working number for the Gov.UK. HM passport office. I got more information, better information from the United States immigration offices but I did not get a working phone number. What is the deal? Are they not here to help us? Seems to me that they, like the American government are off this week! I am so frustrate. If anyone has the correct phone number for the British Passport office please post it, post it anywhere, post it everywhere! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Apple Carnegie Library: what do users think?


Vi Rodriguez: This is a very cool building to visit. The history behind it is also very interesting which you can learn all about it in the basement. The building is very clean!! Lots of staff available to help answer any questions you may have. The first and main floor is the Apple store but it’s not like a regular Apple store. There is a huge selection of all of Apple’s products. On the second floor is a digital art gallery and the library but they were both clothed when I came on a Saturday. Still a cool visit and it’s free to enter and walk around.

Swire Ho: From out of town and we almost didn't notice it is an Apple Store. It was the old Carnegie Library built back in 1901. Went during a weekday at 1PM so there were more employees than customers. They have a gallery on the Top floor and basement. We walked there from our nearby hotel and I don't see any parking near the building.

B Dunnegan: Wasted so much time waiting for reps, while reps who claim they can’t help just stand around. How many reps do YOU see?? I get calls and emails on regular from business team yet when I come in store, none are available to help. Also—the store operation is inefficiently run. What should be pinging/cueing up clients at check in is a belaboring dog and pony show that passes you from one rep to another. Over it. As a small business owner, who was literally called and emailed every day by what was described as a small business support team at the Carnegie location has not produced one iota of assistance. Over it.

livingmytruth 2: Michael, Gunner and Taylor were absolutely amazing. This was by far the best Apple store i ever been in. As soon as i walked in the door i was greeted by Taylor and Michael. They made me feel at home. They answered all my questions and eased all my fears about this big new location. Then i met with Gunner ( who happens to be deaf) and he was absolutely a joy. He was efficient, fast and he really made me feel comfortable through my process of getting an new ipad. Way to go Apple, this is the kind of experience i am looking for

Daria Willis: The Apple Store was quite an experience! I loved it! The staff was wonderful! Knowledgeable, helpful and courteous! I had an appointment for a phone and I requested help with my Mac laptop. They took care of it, cleaned it up and now its almost like new even though it is 8 yrs old! Excellent!!!

Vinh Mai: Great layout, no pushy salespeople, very helpful staff. My guy Marcus was fantastic from beginning to me leaving with a new phone.

Charlie Olsen: Great service from the staff. Walked in and immediately had a staff member helping me and was out with my purchase in less than 15 minutes. Also the library building has a museum upstairs that’s really cool. 10/10 shopping experience.

Scott Denman: Was told to wait for help with an employee currently helping another customer. That customer was being a royal pain, but instead of noticing that I’ve been standing around for 30 minutes waiting, others who came to the store after me were being helped for the same thing I came in for… For a company that seems to care about its image, they are pretty horrible at customer service. On the plus side, they are very accommodating for employees with disabilities. Overall though they are pretty bad at letting people just stand around

Seva Narkute: I have received the best service at this Apple Store location. I highly recommend making an appointment before visiting as this beautifully located store stays busy, although the staff there has been extremely helpful and understanding even on the times when I showed up without an appointment. :)

Mauricio Pretto: I had one of the best experiences shopping in my life here The person that was helping me was death and had a interpreter in a FaceTime to help him. This is the true inclusion of technology. Amazing! I left crying of joy! Congratulations apple! This was incredible!

United States Postal Service: what do users think?


Zenzalei Zee: Does not answer the phone. I got lost trying to find the place for my passport appointment and called to get directions. Because they did not answer to help me, I was 10 minutes late for my appointment. Then they would not help me because they said it takes 15 minutes for each customer. However, when you book your appointment, you do it in half-hour increments. They still had 20 minutes to help me for what they themselves said 15 minutes. Also, they have lost two of my packages. They come so late that our rental office is closed and the carrier cannot get in, so they say they will try to redeliver the packages and they never did. Amazon still has them as attempting to deliver my package on January 7. It is now January 11 and there has been no further update other than "USPS will try again on the next business day." That was yesterday. Meanwhile they are delivering other packages to my building. This post office is HORRIBLE and I miss having the one in Courthouse as my post office. I am going to issue a formal complaint with the USPS and I suggest others do, too. The postmaster here needs to be held accountable for the poor quality of the staff who work at this post office.

Emily Deanne: Not a huge fan of this post office. The lines are always long and the service is always slow. Sometimes the staff can be rude as well. If you can try to avoid going to the counter. I would recommend using the Kiosk or doing click and ship - so you print a label at home and can just put your package in the drop box. I have never had a pleasant experience going up to the desk. One time I had a package to send and the person behind the desk just took my package and tossed it onto another desk without saying a word. It was unclear if that meant it was going to be processed or if they wanted me to take it back. So I took it back and then walked it over to the drop box to put in in there. Otherwise, I was unsure whether it would just sit out on the desk all day!

Ryan Verey: Scheduled a passport appointment here with my 3 month old son. The lady was so rude I was honestly taken back. She said the pic would look bad because my child is white and wearing a white sweater. I said there was nothing in the application about refraining from wearing white to which she replied “it’s common sense”. The other lady helping me was nice and even said that she is always like this and difficult to work with. She was going out of her way to be rude. What’s funny is I told the nicer lady that we came here because this location is usually nicer than the staff on S Glebe (which are another level of rude) and she told me that this lady used to be at that location which I found kind of funny.

Olivia Lanham: Truly a terrible experience every time I go here. Long lines and bad customer service that surely incentives most locals to use other carriers in the area. Todays experience summarizes a typical sort of encounter- There weren’t many customers but there was a line forming at the post-it-yourself machine because apparently the main desk was down. I approached the main desk just to ask for advice and to borrow a singular piece of tape. The woman ignored me, had her personal AirPods in. I then stood back to wait as she took another customer (who was not in line). Everyone at the machine now realized that her desk was, in fact, not out of service. I found another attendant to ask for the piece of tape. She said they didn’t have any (???) but that I could buy some (not a normal roll, that wasn’t even in stock). Same goes for scissors to cut this tape. None sold, and I was told to use a pen. Two other customers were having similar experiences with the attitude of the women working, and the three of us helped each other sharing the supplies found in our purses- pens, scraps of tape, etc. We finally are able to attach our labels loosely to the prepaid packages, knowing that ultimately the lady behind the counter will more pristinely re-tape it all with the tape she apparently doesn’t have. I get it. They can’t give everyone a handout. But an act of kindness, especially when the store is not busy, does go a long way. The three other customers and I agreed that it’s worth it to just pay for better service elsewhere next time.

Kate Winterholler: Is the requirement to work here that you are the rudest, most condescending person ever? Never in my life have I received such horrible service. I am appalled at the way I was treated at this USPS passport agency— from the second I stepped in the door I was spoken down to in an EXTREMELY harsh manner for absolutely no reason whatsoever, and then, the woman conducting my appointment turned me away for a completely false reason (I have since verified to be VIABLE proof of citizenship by 2 different government agencies including the Department of State,) so she turned me away for no reason other than she is a lazy and inconsiderate person who doesn’t want to do their job and gets off on speaking down to people and ruining their day. Also, I asked for a pen while I was waiting to fill out the needed forms, and THEY gave me a blue pen, then proceeded to tell me blue ink is unviable and to re-do the form in black ink. YOU gave me the blue pen to begin with. The fact that our government functions like this is abhorrent. Thank you for the false information and cruelty!

Delena Ganey: Staff has always been very helpful, and the line is never more than ~4 people. I have never had a negative experience and have been here several times!

Kujnn Yaah: Tamika the Supervisor NOT HELPFUL and how long have the same problems with her and this post office now in this new location continues to happen. Tamika have not resolve issues with missing mail that always happen with the Carriers! Carriers loses mail quit often. REPORT THE SORTING MAIL OR CARRIERS WHO DO NOT DELIVER YOUR FIRST CLASS MAIL ALWAYS MISSING ESPECIALLY IF IT IS A GIFT CARD OR CREDIT CARD. THE POSTAL SERVICE IN ARLINGTON COUNTY NEEDS INVESTIGATIONS DUE TO HOW MUSCH MAIL IS ALWAYS TAMPERED WITH.

Cait O’Donoghue: Had a great experience with the passport office here-Tiana was fantastic, caught a few errors on my forms for my infant daughter, and was able to get them fixed. She also helped with my renewal application. I had an appointment and didn't wait at all. (just FYI the confirmation email didn't come through, but thats a USPS.com issue)

Leslie Smith: Staff is rude and does not prioritize customers. There was a line of five people and one staff member was standing at the desk organizing paper. After getting to the front of the line, I was told that I could not be helped because my package did not yet have tape on it. I brought my own and it took me two seconds to tape. I had to have it open to show them the return address on my return sheet before placing it in my package. They gave me a hard time about this too. I’m sad that this is going to be my new post office as it is next to my new apartment. I miss the treatment at the UPS store that was next to my old apartment.

Josh Johnson: Staff is rude and slow. They’re busy chatting with each other and playing with their phones while there’s a long line of people. They don’t answer the phone when I tried calling.
