This building used to be a favorite because of the great views it provided over washington. Now Donald Trump is building a hotel here and it just disgusts me to see his name in huge letters over this classy building. What a turn off.

Disappointed it is currently being turned into a Trump Hotel so we could not get to the tower to overlook the city. Hoping they keep the tower open after it reopens.

The architecture is amazing and very beautiful to walk through. I loved walking through the marbled hallways to get the national mall.

Great for children 6 - 12 years. Excellent historical background to postal service, "mail" and why it still matters!

I love that Trump owns this now and is making it a hotel! I hope they keep the tower open to the public. This tower has the best view of DC aside from the Washington Monument.

Wonderful displays of history. The tower was very impressive. The old post office is such and integral part of our history.

We visited DC in 1986, and this was a busy, vibrant place for eating, shopping, etc. No more. When we returned recently for what I remembered as a great place to get a waffle cone...it was nearly deserted. We did get a cup of frozen yogurt, sat and rested our feet...but no interesting people watching, no fun shops. Unless it... More

This is a beautiful old building that is just off the National Mall. After years of being a large post office building it was turned into a visitor's site with a great food court and terrific views from the tower. Unfortunately it is no longer open and when it does reopen it will be a new Trump Hotel. Darn!

What could be seen of the building was beautiful. It is currently under renovation as it is becoming a Trump Hotel. It is definitely is a picturesque place. Couldn't get in for a tour as a result of the renovations.

We stumbled on this old Post Office when walking down the mall and noticed it was closed whilst being developed for a Trump Inc Hotel. It will be a great hotel when opened as it will have a great view. We could see it from Arlington Cemetery and from Ronald Reagan Airport when flying back to New York .
