  • The church is so beautiful. Music perfect and very good sermon. Highly recommend anyone to attend.
  • I have a blast to document weddings there! Church itself is just stunning. Very calm and very charming. If you never been here before please do.
  • Very beautiful church on the inside. Lots of seating. It's very big.
  • Amazing cathedral. In silence you can really feel its magnificence, plainly. A must when you visit DC.

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.
