The iconic and legendary Watergate Hotel is located next to Georgetown and the ideal location for corporate groups & meetings in Washington D.C. With over 27,000 square feet of meeting and event space, our hotel was completely redesigned and renovated in 2016. Ten functional meeting rooms across two levels comprise our distinct meeting and event rooms. Additionally, our rooftop venue, Top of the Gate, offers the best views of the city and Potomac River in all of Washington, DC.

Our name is synonymous with the country’s biggest political scandal. The Watergate Hotel, however, was controversial from the start. When it opened in 1965, celebrity Italian architect Luigi Moretti’s curvy, sprawling design sent shock waves through conservative D.C. Despite criticism, the Washington D.C. luxury hotel quickly became a playground for the fabulous. Actors and models hobnobbed with the congressmen and Supreme Court justices who lived in the Watergate apartments. Its glamorous reputation was eclipsed with political scandal on June 17, 1972, when five intruders were caught in the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee, leading to Richard Nixon’s resignation from the presidency.
