  • Beautiful building and great place to park near the Washigton monuments and museums. High security screening makes you feel even better.  more »
  • This is where my 15 senior high students got big smiles, lots of food to choose from and the vouchers I pre-purchased gave us some savings. There are not a lot of food options in the neighborhood so I...  more »
  • The architecture is fantastic. It has a passageway in the back with Esplanade, very pleasant walking. Do not enter the building which I understand is for business events. It is worth walking when heading East.

  • Is it ironic that the second largest government building in the US was named for Ronald Reagan, a proponent of smaller government? This is a nice building. Lots of space for conferences. The food court has some good dining options. Many doors, but because of heightened security, most are now locked. In the summer there are concerts in the courtyard during lunch. A nice size farmers market occurs on Fridays.
  • Very large office building, with some retail, a restaurent, a large food court and several large conference areas. The amphitheater is is regularly occupied on weekends by the Capital Steps political comedy troupe. The huge lobby is a dramatic space but the acoustics are terrible. The center is easily accessed from the Federal Triangle Metro and a tunnel in back of the food court goes directly to the Department of Commerce. The Center has a huge multi level parking lot which is convenient but expensive (currently about $26 per day). When certain events are underway, underground parking can be restricted only to drivers with government IDs.
  • Popped up at the Reagan Building when getting off the Metro. The upper entrance leads out onto a square that is variously packed with people, home to an international festive or a still point in the early evening. The architecture is very interesting and just a bit unusual. I have never been to the food court. I understand it is rather nice, and offers many selections. I have, however been to the Timgad Cafe, nestled in the lower level plaza courtyard. I highly recommend the coffee there. I am a fan of dirty chai tea lattes - the best I have ever had came from the Timgad Cafe.
  • Very nice atmosphere food court closes at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time come 24 hours a day warm-up use our restrooms. Security check at the door.
  • Incredible interior. Secured federal building with a food court. The lobby speaks for itself and is impressive. It has airport type security but you're processed quickly. Staff are helpful and supportive. Great parking underneath if you're headed to NMAAH or the National Mall.

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.
