    How far from the nearest grocery store is RL Washington DC by Red Lion Hotel? Can tickets for local attractions be purchased at the front desk?
    24 October 2016|
    Answer Show all 5 answers
    Response from Sarah C | Property representative |
    It is a 5-10 minute walk to the nearest grocery store. The front desk does sell tickets for the on and off bus tour. Many of the other attractions are free like the Smithsonian museums.
