Washington DC: Watergate Deuxiéme Partie PDF Print E-mail

If your travels take you to the Nation’s Capital this political election season, you may want to consider staying in an infamous location. The scandal of snooping at the hotel sent Richard Nixon packing 40 years ago. Now, after being shamefully shuttered for nearly a decade, the Watergate has reopened.

The hotel is extensively updated and boasts a five-star rating and many new luxury features. Conveniently located at Virginia and New Hampshire NW, it’s in the busy Foggy Bottom neighborhood. Nearby is the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, George Washington University and the National Mall.

Rates, including taxes and other add-ons, start at about $300 a night. When you check in, the desk clerk may not appreciate it if you do the V gesture and shout, “I am not a crook!” For more info, go to www.the watergatehotel.com
