Be one of the first 50 when the truck arrives at each hotel, and you can get a free cone with one topping, such as strawberries, granola, or organic chocolate chips. You also can enter a raffle for a free weekend getaway at each hotel and get the “inside scoop” on the company’s more than 80 green products and practices.

Where and when: Virginia – Today at Hotel Palomar Arlington (3:15 p.m.), Hotel Monaco Alexandria (4:45 p.m.), Morrison House (5:30 p.m.), and Lorien Hotel & Spa (6:15 p.m.); DC – Friday at Hotel George (10 a.m.), Hotel Monaco Washington DC (11 a.m.), Helix Hotel (Noon), Hotel Rouge (3 p.m.), Topaz Hotel (4 p.m.), Hotel Madera (5 p.m.), and Hotel Palomar Washington DC (6 p.m.).
