Guests also enjoy very short walks to the National Mall, the museums of the Smithsonian Institution, the Washington Monument, and the White House.
THE SEAT OF POWER
In the heart of the nation’s capital, you’ll get an in-depth understanding of the insights into the forces influencing America and its actions in the world. This is your once-in-a-lifetime chance to meet and interact with people shaping the news and the country’s future, from Congress members and diplomats, to lobbyists and journalists, for an edifying look into the houses of power.
Newsweek correspondents will discuss what it’s like covering the President, the House and the Senate, as well as how journalists can hold our lawmakers to account on behalf of ordinary citizens.
