Your Lodging Of Choice

take a tour of The magnificent white house

Less than a mile from our convenient location in central DC, the White House is where United States presidents have lived since the turn of the 19th century. Throughout the year, you'll be able to enjoy an up-close-and-personal look at the some of the rooms that make up this grand residence via various tours. Self-guided tours are available by getting in touch with your Congressional representative. This can be done up to three months ahead of time but no less than 21 days in advance. White House garden tours are given less frequently but are equally compelling.
