Modern Snapshot: The Inn of Rosslyn

I’ve driven by The Inn of Rosslyn on Route 50 many times, but never seemed to have time to actually stop to take pictures. I finally did the other day so here are a few shots of the former Motel 50, built by William D. Green in 1957. The mid-century motel remains in the Green family, which also built and owns the the 1963 Americana Hotel in Crystal City. (Here’s a cool shot of the Americana at night.)
