For a century, the Wardman Park Hotel has been the choice hotel destination for everyone from politicians to celebrities and tourists enjoying a visit to our nation's capital. Built in 1918 by developer Harry Wardman on the site of his expansive mansion, the hotel's architect designed the hotel to take advantage of the bucolic park-like setting. Wardman Park Hotel was both an upscale hotel and a residence, with US presidents, vice presidents, congressmen, Supreme Court justices, and celebrities residing there. Life at Wardman Park Hotel was like living at a resort, as guests relaxed in the hotel's enormous pool and attended lavish galas. Over the years, Wardman Park Hotel has undergone many expansions; however, a portion of Harry Wardman's original structure remains. Today, the hotel includes well-appointed rooms, luxurious suites, and condominiums and is regarded as a prime convention and meeting space destination.
