FALLS CHURCH, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- As any parent knows, children make every single aspect of life better except one: mealtime. From cajoling kids to eat something green, to threatening them with no dessert if they don't finish their meals, feeding children sometimes feels like an unfair prison sentence. The Fairview Park Marriott, however, is offering a reprieve to parents everywhere with its Kids Eat Free promotion. Just in time for springtime travel, this Falls Church hotel near the DC Metro is giving families a new lease on dining.
Parents won't find a more appetizing offer among Northern VA hotel deals. From waffles in the morning, to burgers at lunch, to pasta for dinner, kids have plenty of ways to eat well during their vacation. And the dessert options (like biscotti gelato and flourless chocolate torte) may just be enough incentive for kids to finish their meals without coercion for once.
Parents can look forward to enjoying equally satisfying meals off the grownup menu, too. Offering creative dishes that riff on classic American fare, the hotel's Ellipse Restaurant can accommodate virtually any palate, from the health-conscious (think garden-vegetable paninis), to the just plain hungry (horseradish-crusted NY strip steak anyone?).
When it's not time to eat, families can take advantage of the hotel's superb amenities. The heated indoor-outdoor pool and fitness center afford plenty of ways to stay active, while 32-inch flat-screen televisions and high-speed Internet access in the guest rooms ensure no kid has to go too long without access to entertainment.
Unique among Falls Church, VA hotels, the property also offers free self-parking as well as complimentary shuttle service to local attractions. This means guests don't have to worry about logistics while planning their activities. Located among Mosaic District Virginia hotels, the property is enviably close to the new development's exciting mix of activities, shopping and dining, not to mention the upscale Tysons Corner. Or families can travel further afield to explore nearby D.C.'s diverse selection of attractions, like the National Zoo, the Washington Monument and, of course, the White House.
Available through December 31, 2014, the Kids Eat Free package includes overnight accommodations and all kids' meals for children ages 12 and younger. Rates start at $69 per night. Travelers must use the promotional code ZJ6 when booking to secure the package. More information is available by calling 1-800-834-6704 or visiting http://www.marriott.com/specials/mesOffer.mi?marrOfferId=798207&displayLink=true.

Considering the numerous surrounding attractions, from the new Mosaic District to the perennially popular Tysons Galleria, there's always plenty to see and do.

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
