Fodor's Review

George Washington celebrated his birthdays in the ballroom here, and Thomas Jefferson and John Adams 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, balls, afternoon teas, and free tours on President's Day, Mother's Day, and Father's Day.
