The Old Congress Hall Hotel: A 'school of practical politics' that we desperately need today

First Published by The Hill on January 22, 2021



The Congress Hall Hotel on Capitol Hill was a home-away-from-home for hundreds of congressmen and senators from 1907 to 1930. Eighty-seven of them lived at the hotel during the 64th Congress, from 1915 to 1917, 66 with their wives and families. The hotel was on New Jersey Ave. SE at Independence Ave. where the Longworth House Office Building is today and was torn down in 1930 to make room for the congressional offices.
