Charming bar with exceptional whiskey selections. Bartender was well versed on a large variety of whiskey and had great suggestions for other cocktails. The bar had a great decor. Well worth a visit.

This curved shaped building on the Potomac is one of Washington's best places to live. It's size is impressive but it is close to the water and parks which makes it very desirable.

We went by the complex a few times during our trip in Washington. The complex definitely looked like it was built many decades ago. Condoleezza Rice used to live in the complex when she worked in DC.

The hotel was far beyond what I had anticipated...excellent service, superb room accommodations and the breakfast at the hotel was delicious! The Watergate was directly beside The Kennedy Center so that made 'travel' to The Kennedy Center simple...will definitely stay there again...
