Visited the other day. Ate at the local cafe and; found hair in my food and saw the cook drop my burger on the floor. Wish there were regulations to keep that from happening. People were smoking in the hallways. Wish somebody had banned that. They tried to charge me 10 times more for my drink compared to Canada. Wish somebody would care to make goods affordable. The place seemed to have an orange tint as well... Couldn't figure that one out.

This is the best landmark in the Washington, DC area! With the future president living in here (Donald Trump), this place will look even better! The mansion is big, white, and majestic. I love this place! :-)

This place just isn't the same as it used to be. Staff has no diversity and management refuses to hire new people. The guy in charge either lies to your face or berates you, also pretty sure he's being paid for favors by a hotel down the street. Head of promotions relies on giving you alternative facts whenever you point out irregularities in the management style. If you'd like a better idea of how it's run I believe there's a twitter account that you can look up, though it probably needs to be fact checked. I prefer the former management.

As others have said, although you have to stand fairly far away from the actual building, you can still get a very good view and take good pictures. There are a lot of security in the area, and roads are blocked off, but it is still fairly easy to get to. This is a must-see when you are in DC.
