White House

Located one mile from our hotel, the White House is one of the most iconic places in America. The official home to U.S. presidents since 1800 is open to visitors year round courtesy of several tours. The self-guided tour must be arranged by contacting your representative to Congress up to six months, but no less than three weeks, in advance. Several times a year, you can also join White House Garden Tours. You learn all about the White House at the Visitor Center.

  • Do I need identification for a White House tour?

    If you are 18 years of age or older, you will need identification to enter the White House. Valid government-issued photo identification, such as a driver’s license, passport or military ID, is required. Non-citizens of the United States must show their passports. No photocopies or expired pieces of identification are acceptable.
  • Are there any items not allowed in the White House?

    There are several items that you cannot bring with you on a tour. These include cameras, video recorders, handbags, backpacks, purses, book bags, food, drinks, strollers, and weapons. You can, however, bring cell phones, car keys, wallets, and umbrellas with you. Remember not to use your cell phone inside the White House or it could be taken away.
