This is worth stopping by to see the city views! I would recommend it cause you can decide where you want to go after viewing everything from up here. Inside the hotel is also super fancy and nice to look at.

This old post office building, now a Trump Hotel, has a clock tower, from where you can enjoy a nice view on Washington DC. The entrance is free.

We were there last April and it was closed at the time and are not certain as to whether the renovations have been completed. It looked like a very extensive renovation so I wouldn't be surprised if it hasn't opened yet... More
