  • Great place to meet, as it is a place where you decide the future of the country. Indico leave this place to go late in the afternoon, before the Sun is poor, so you will have a better view of the other points of interest. If you can, rent a bike, to save time. $2/30 min.

  • The best government office building in DC. It's just a few blocks from the US Capitol and by far the nicest office building in Congress. It houses the Senate and contrary to the House offices, The Hart Building is modern, open, and light. Anyone can walk in (you just need to get through security) and explore the building. You'll notice a large middle section with a modern sculpture in the middle. Take one of the elevators to any floor and walk around looking at how big the Senator offices are. If you're a photographer, this building has amazing lighting to capture some good shots!
  • This is my favorite of the congressional office buildings as the interior has a nice open feel with a large amount of offices opening into the atrium. Additionally, there is a massive steel mountain and clouds sculpture in the atrium that is rather inspiring as well as some smaller models of buildings on Capitol Hill.
  • One the most amazing place that I've been here in D.C, we finished out IYLEP program here. Leading figures from the Iraqi Embassy In D.C were here it was honor to learn and give something in return to your country.
  • Big, spacious and modern. Where the senators are. Security line can take up to 30 min in am.
  • Senators and Representatives from your state can arrange Capitol tour by their staff. Email in advance. Grill for lunch on ground level. Great news! They also have a Tylenol vending machine on the ground level in case hearings give you a headache!

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.
