Every summer, the Smithsonian Institute takes over part of the National Mall for the Folklife Festival. This year’s event focuses on and celebrates resilient communities across the globe, with special emphasis on the Basque Country of Spain. Come check out how the Basque people cook, dance, and speak the Euskera language as a way of preserving their culture. There will be plenty of artisan booths to browse and vendors selling traditional food and rioja wine.

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!
