Expert Reviews
If you can't be the president, be his neighbor. Immediate prestige is just a slingshot's shot away from the secret service men staring back at you from the White House roof.
DK Eyewitness
Constructed on the sites of the homes of John Hay and Henry Adams, this elegant hotel features beautifully restored rooms filled with antiques and boasting ornamental ceilings.
Forbes Travel Guide
One of the best spots in the hotel is the luxurious rooftop terrace. Its panoramic views of the city, monuments and Capitol make it an excellent choice for private parties and events.
