Capitol Hill Hotel Hosts a Warm-Up Lounge for Inauguration Day

Located just 644 steps from the Capitol Building, this lifestyle hotel is offering guests and attendees warm beverages and treats on Inauguration Day

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - December 15, 2016) - Held every four years on January 20th, Inauguration Day is usually a blustery one in the Nation's capital. With that in mind and because of its close proximity to the swearing in ceremony, Capitol Hill Hotel -- just 644 steps from the Capitol Building, the closest hotel to the festivities -- announced today that it will be offering a Warm-Up Lounge for Inauguration Day, inviting both guests and attendees in from the cold for hot chocolate, coffee and treats.

"Because of our proximity to the Capitol Building, hotel guests and lounge visitors can enjoy the convenience of our being just outside the Red Zone, so cars and taxis can still drop off here, but they will be literally steps from where all the action is," said Jennifer Goodman, general manager, Capitol Hill Hotel.

The Warm-Up lounge will be open on Inauguration Day from 9AM- 5PM in the Library of Capitol Hill Hotel, located on the corner of 2nd and C Streets, SE. Guests and inauguration goers alike are welcome to visit the lounge, which will offer complimentary warm beverages and treats in addition to a warm place to spend a few minutes.

In addition to the Warm-Up Lounge, the hotel will extend its 5pm wine reception for hotel guests to include champagne to commemorate the occasion. Hotel guests will also enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi, 24/7 access to the secure fitness room and continental breakfast daily. Limited parking is available for hotel guests, but the hotel recommends guests take the train and relish in their proximity to the action.

"As an Independent Collection hotel, we always get involved in local events at Capitol Hill Hotel and this is our biggest one, held just every four years," said Goodman.
