Best View of the White house

We had planned to go to POV bar at the W Hotel but looking on the website it's closed all summer. Any alternative suggestions?

The best view of the White House is on the ground outside the fence near Lafayette Park. If you want to see it from on high, then the top of the Washington Monument.

My mind is blanking on anything other than Darrell's Suggestions unless you have access to one of the federal buildings nearby (which you likely won't).

Unfortunately, it's not a public space, but the view from many of the south-facing rooms in the Hay-Adams is excellent.

Good luck,

Tourists can get an even closer look of course by going around the back of the White House from the Mall.
