The political game continues to heat up more and more by the minute, and before we know it, January will be here, and Washington, D.C. will be once again, one of the hottest destinations on the planet. Regardless of how you stand on the president-elect, you’ll want to be part of this history-making event as the world watches the 2017 Presidential Inauguration. Park Hyatt Washington D.C. has announced their exclusive Inauguration Package, which includes a four-night stay in the hotel’s Presidential Suite (January 19-23); a VIP tour of historic Mount Vernon, home to America’s first president, George Washington; a presidential feast for 12 in Blue Duck Tavern; and an array of unique guestroom amenities.
If you book this package, you will enjoy chauffeured round-trip airport transfers, and a four-night stay in Park Hyatt Washington’s penthouse level, 2,006-square-foot corner Presidential Suite with daily breakfast for two in award-winning Blue Duck Tavern, or at your leisure in the suite. The package also includes a chauffeur service to whisk you and up to three additional guests, to Mount Vernon, George and Martha Washington’s plantation and 21-room mansion, situated on the banks of the Potomac River for a privately guided two-hour tour. Already a beautiful place to visit, you will also gain exclusive access to parts of the mansion generally off-limits to visitors, and hear informative commentary about the historical sites with a rare behind-the-scenes look at George Washington’s Mount Vernon.
Presidential-inspired room amenities for the package also include a luxurious, keepsake 100% wool, flag blanket; a copy of Dining with the Washingtons: Historic Recipes, Entertaining, and Hospitality from Mount Vernon; and a limited edition bottle of George Washington’s Straight Rye Whiskey, which is made according to his original recipe, distilled then aged two years in oak barrels, and sold exclusively through Mount Vernon. George Washington was once the largest whiskey producer in America, producing nearly 11,000 gallons in 1799. Today Mount Vernon continues the tradition of producing whiskey, as well as other small batch distilled spirits, at their historic reconstructed Distillery & Gristmill site.
To complete the experience, you will also be treated to an exclusive Founding Fathers chef’s table for 12 to enjoy this experience with your friends and family. Executive Chef Franck Loquet and Blue Duck Tavern’s Chef de Cuisine Brad Deboy will prepare this one-of-a-kind menu. This unique menu will feature the favorite food and beverages of past presidents, including some recipes from the Washington’s collection. The celebratory meal will also be inspired by influential founding fathers like Thomas Jefferson, said to be a lover of fine food and drinks; Abraham Lincoln, said to favor chicken Fricassee with herbed biscuits and various cheeses and crackers; and George Washington, a great lover of ice cream who often served ice cream at presidential Thursday night dinners.
Cost of this exclusive package is $45,000 excluding taxes and gratuity. In celebration of the Presidential Inauguration, and the opportunity to celebrate great American history for present and future generations, Park Hyatt Washington will contribute a portion of the proceeds to Mount Vernon, as well as make a minimum contribution of $500 to the Trust for the National Mall.
