Capitol Hill Hotel introduces two presidentially-inspired packages: A decadent package for January’s Presidential Inauguration and a Lincoln-themed package in anticipation of the wide-release of the film, "Lincoln"

With Capitol Hill Hotel’s “Presidential Package,” for $26,000, up to four guests can experience the ease and luxury befitting a world class leader when they travel to D.C. for the 2013 Inauguration.

“We are so close to the Capitol Building that we just can’t help but catch Inauguration fever,” said Joy Whiddon, director of sales at Capitol Hill Hotel.

Capitol Hill Hotel — a newly renovated boutique property located in the heart of the Capitol Hill historic district and the closest hotel to the Capitol building — has announced two presidentially-inspired packages: a delightfully decadent Inauguration package called “The Presidential Package” and an experiential one called “All About Abe” in anticipation of the wide-release of the film, “Lincoln.”

The 152-room Capitol Hill Hotel is ideally situated for guests to take part in both Inauguration festivities and Lincoln-inspired tourism.

“We are so close to the Capitol Building that we just can’t help but catch Inauguration fever,” said Joy Whiddon, director of sales at Capitol Hill Hotel. “And the “All About Abe” package grew out of the local buzz and excitement surrounding the movie’s release. There is so much to see in D.C. that is Lincoln-related — we wanted to share it with our guests.”
