We regret to announce that the "White House Overnight Guest Program" will no longer continue under the Trump Administration due to the repeal of the Obama Administration's openness and
transparency doctrine. You are welcome, however, to make a reservation to stay at the 5-star Trump International Hotel just down the street.
Exploring the White House
Perhaps the most exciting part of the Overnight Guest Program is the unprecedented access guests
will have to all areas of the White House. At 7PM, guests will be allowed entry via the prestigious West Wing
Entrance. The Secret Service will assist you in finding your room.
After you are settled in, you are
free to roam the halls for a self-guided tour. Detailed maps will be provided for your convenience.
Be sure to wear the special "O" badge at all times. This will identify you as an Overnight Guest with
Level-4 access. Note: Some areas of the White House require knowledge of a daily access password. You
will receive this password upon check-in. Be sure to memorize it.

The Queen's Bedroom
Named for the many royal guests including Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, Queen Sonja of Norway, and Queen Sofía of Spain,
this richly decorated room is furnished in the Federal Style evoking an early-19th-century New England bedroom featuring
the bed of Andrew Jackson.

Decorated with period art work and colored prints worthy of the most discerning collector.
The room also has a sitting area with full-size sofa and chair, writing desk,
and inlaid armoire. Great view of the North Lawn! Bath has Jacuzzi tub and shower with separate dressing area.
The Lincoln Bedroom
Artfully restored incorporating Lincoln period details such as window cornices and mantel.
The centerpiece of the room is the 8-foot by 6-foot Rosewood Lincoln bed.
The gilded carved bed canopy
is in the shape of a crown with flowing yards of regal purple satin over white lace trailing to the floor.
The bed hanging satin, drapery silk, tassels and tiebacks are Scalamandré exclusives.
The furniture used by the Lincoln Administration includes the sofa and three matching chairs,
two slipper chairs, and four of Lincoln's Cabinet chairs.
Guests staying in the Lincoln Bedroom will have the use of the Lincoln bathroom, installed during the
Truman presidency, with pale green opaque glass tiles and a mirrored dome ceiling light.
The spacious tub has an elegant sandblasted etching of a Presidential eagle.

As the First Lady recently said about the White House: "I hope we've done a good job
of bringing even more people to this place—people who never thought they were connected to
this history. Just increasing that curiosity that this White House is yours, everyone's:
It doesn't belong to a set of special people who have access and privilege. It's
everyone's house, at every age. So come, use this place, walk in the doors.
Feel like it's your museum."
