We learned of this from a guided tour in DC. It is free to go to. A special entrance opposite of the Trump Hotel entrance. Well worth a visit to see DC from above.

This is a beautiful building and the interior of Trump hotel is amazing. We visited on the spur of the moment and as we were walking back to our hotel we encountered the presidential motorcade. What a sight!

With the Washington Monument being closed for repairs, the Tower provides the best view of DC. It is not advertised a lot, so the lines are not bad. A must see while in DC.

If you want one of the best views in Washington DC, then this is the best place to come. It is nestled inside the Trump Hotel (or more accurately, the Trump Hotel surrounds the tower). You can access the tower for free, and you really...More

....Its closed on the Pennsylvania Ave side as it's now the Trump International Hotel. Go around the side and it's behind the Starbucks. Free entry. Bags have to be checked prior to entry.

This is literally the best kept secret in DC! It’s free and run by the National Park Service. As a previous reviewer mentioned, the entrance is a little tricky to find and there is not a sign on the sidewalk. Find the Starbucks on the...More

Thank you Mr Trump for a beautiful restoration of the Old Post Office into the Trump International Hotel. The entrance to the museum in the basement and tower lookout is somewhat hidden by the Starbucks. Museum consists of historical pictures and documents of early D.C.....More
