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.

  • We passed this on the tour a few times and so decided to go in. Now a trump hotel and focal point recently of demonstrations, but politics aside it is an amazing building and to think they were going ...  more »
  • Clock Tower is still Closed - but you can enter the lobby for the Trump Tower - the lobby area is nice a big difference when this was just a pavilion with tourist shops and fast food. 
  • Go all the way up to the top for an excellent view of D.C. Also there are lots of shops and eateries on the bottom level, so this is a nice place to take a break.
