This odd-shaped hotel sits next to the Kennedy Center and is most famous as the site where the Watergate break-in occurred, leading to President Richard Nixon's resignation. Elegance prevails at the hotel, with its black and white marble floors, lavish Asian rugs, antiques and lobby waterfall. The newly renovated guestrooms were formerly apartments and are spacious. Many have balconies overlooking the Potomac River. The Watergate complex includes offices and luxury apartments, where many celebrities and political notables reside.
