Architectural Building Historic Site
A representative of the Neo-Romanesque architectural style, Old Post Office Pavilion is a Washington, D.C. landmark. When it was built in 1899, it was the capital city's largest building, the first one to be built with incorporated electrical wiring, and the first one with a steel frame. Today, the building's Clock Tower is the third tallest structure in the city, and it houses the famous Bells of Constitution. There are ten bells, and you can hear them ring for blocks. During its history, the building has been remodeled and faced the threat of demolition. The Trump Organization is converting it into a hotel expected to open by the end of 2016. During reconstruction, the interior is closed to visitors. Put Old Post Office Pavilion on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Washington DC travel itinerary planner.

  • Very cool architecture inside and out. Their are tours of the clock tower.
  • Wow, I would not have stayed here unless the President Elect owned it. The fact that he is the leader of the free world and also owns this hotel is awesome. I felt like I was lucky to get to stay in his presence.
