We Love DC In The Winter!
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Washington, DC in the winter is full of surprises (and sometimes snow)! From ice skating at the National Gallery to viewing the White House Christmas tree, there's something for everyone in your family.
Before setting off on a journey around our nation's capital, why not savor your morning coffee with our in-house historian, Jim Garrett on Saturdays from 9:00am until 1:00pm. You can usually find Jim in the Book Room where he's available for a casual chat without an appointment regarding the hotel's collection of framed Jefferson autographed documents, the life of Thomas Jefferson, or can recommend points of interest around Washington, DC that are ideal for families, couples or is happy to assist anyone who is heading out on the hotel's WHERE'S TOMMY Instagram adventure!
Guests are also invited to enjoy our exclusive self-guided WHERE’S TOMMY? tour of DC any day of the week, visiting eight locations in and around the city where Thomas Jefferson stands. Just to add a little fun, snap pictures of our TOMMY with your smart phone at each location, and upload the photo to Instagram with the handle @thejeffersondc and hashtag #WheresTommyDC and get a prize for completing the tour.
And to make touring a little easier, the hotel offers you complimentary access to the famous Capital Bikeshare program, with bike stations conveniently located next to each of our TOMMY locations.
When you return at the end of your day, unwind and enjoy homemade cookies and hot apple cider, compliments of our chef.
*The WHERE'S TOMMY Experience is FREE for all resident guests and is subject to availability. Guests must sign a liability form before using Capital Bikeshare and must be 12 years or older.
