Fodor's Review

George Washington celebrated his birthdays in the ballroom here, and Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and the Marquis de Lafayette were other notable patrons of the two buildings—a circa-1785 tavern and the 1792 City Hotel—that were centers of political and social life. They now form a museum, in which the taproom, dining room, assembly room, ballroom, and communal bedrooms have been restored to their original appearances. Special events include costumed reenactments.
