(2.9/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
A representative of the Neo-Romanesque architectural style, Old Post Office Pavilion - Temoporarily Closed 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.
