A sign of the nation’s affluence, the Presidential Suite embodies the historic grandeur of old D.C. and represents an important narrative of United States history. After the assassination of President James A. Garfield, the Presidential Suite was built for presidents to safely await their travels and it’s the very room several presidents used to welcome world leaders and dignitaries to the United States. During the world wars, it was temporarily transitioned to a USO lounge for soldiers heading off to war.
The President Suite has recently undergone an expansive renovation and is currently available as a private event space in D.C. This uniquely historic room can accommodate up to 300 for cocktail receptions, and 160 for a seated dinner. It works well in conjunction with other spaces, but can also house your event in entirety.
For more information on reserving this event space, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-289-8300 and a member of our special events team will be happy to assist you.
