WASHINGTON HILTON HISTORY AND CULTURE
The Washington Hilton is located on one of the highest elevations in the city, less than two miles away from the White House and National Mall.
Named as one of the top historic hotels in Washington, D.C., the Washington Hilton has hosted U.S. presidents and world leaders for a variety of events since its opening in 1965. Notably, the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner has been held at the Washington Hilton since 1968, bringing together thousands of journalists, celebrities, politicians, and of course, the President.
The hotel has also been used for many musical performances by popular artists, such as a young Jimi Hendrix and The Doors in the 1960’s.
What landed the Washington Hilton in the history books was the infamous assassination attempt of President Ronald Reagan as he was exited the hotel on March 30, 1981. You can see the plaque outside the building that commemorates this incident to this day.
