Presidential Turkey Pardon

November 24, 2016

Right before the Thanksgiving holiday every November the U.S. President takes part in a time-honored American tradition: the presidential turkey pardon. Since turkey forms the most essential part of the classic American Thanksgiving meal, the President takes time every year to pardon one lucky turkey (sometimes two) from being made into a delicious dinner. The ceremony, which dates back to John F. Kennedy’s presidency in 1963, is held in the White House Rose Garden every year. Gather around the Graham Georgetown Hotel’s lobby with the family to watch this quirky, very American event on television this year.

Temporary Hotel Closure Due to COVID-19

As a result of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the hospitality industry is experiencing an impact to business that will cause The Graham Georgetown to temporarily suspend hotel operations as of March 27, 2020. This is a temporary measure that is reflective of the current business environment. This decision is not a result of illness or confirmed cases at the hotel.

We are in the process of supporting Team Members through the transition and notifying guests. Any guests with questions regarding upcoming reservations are encouraged to contact Hilton Reservations and Customer Care for assistance. We plan to fully restore operations at our hotel by September 15, 2020, and look forward to welcoming our guests and Team Members back as soon as possible. We can’t wait to resume our place in the Georgetown community!
