  • Site best known for political scandal that transpired in 1972. Plot was foiled by security guard Frank Wills who sadly was denied a suitable raise after the incident. Full scandal history here<LINK>
  • Scandalous!! But seriously, kind of neat that this is part of history.
  • When you go in, ask for Florence - the nicest, best person you can imagine!!!
  • Brunch here is great and you MUST go to the rooftop bar- preferably in the summer but they do have heaters :)
  • !
  • The Bitches say: A-. Try Kingbird for a posh, historical setting for brunch with excellent cocktails and service. Don't skip dessert!
  • The hotel is huge, which means you can probably get a room for a good price on an off-day.
  • Shopping here is nothing short of a scandal!
  • Watergate doesn't bother me. Does your conscience bother you?
  • I learned how to place tape on a door lock without it being notice... Just realized how different a world we live in would be, if that mistake had never been found?
  • Smells like scandal.
  • The one and only.
  • Todos los hombres del presidente: En el 6 piso est la sede del Partido Demcrata. All entran 5 sujetos a robar en plena campaa de Nixon. Los periodistas descubren que eran agentes del gobierno.
  • Take advantage of the CVS, Post Office and many other stores at the base of The Watergate.
