Built in 1926, this charming air-conditioned city hotel offers 182 rooms and is an icon of restored elegance where glamour meets tradition. Desirably located just two blocks north of the White House, the gracefully re-imagined establishment is the hotel of choice for royalty, presidents, and prime ministers in the nation's capital. Guests are welcomed in the lobby, which offers a 24-hour reception and a 24-hour check-out service, as well as a hotel safe, newspaper stand, currency exchange and lift access to the upper floors. There is a café, a bar and a restaurant and guests will appreciate the conference facilities and wireless Internet access. Guests can also take advantage of the room and laundry services (fees apply for both). Those arriving by car may leave their vehicles in the hotel car park or garage (both for a fee).
The hotel offers an unparalleled vantage point to the capital's premier destinations. Two blocks from the White House, the hotel is also just a short walk from the Washington Monument, the National Geographic Society, the Lincoln Memorial, and many government buildings.
