Washington's Dupont Circle offers 'Your Vote, Your Stay' package

Election fever is in full swing at the Dupont Circle in Washington with packages with either a Democrat or Republican slant, valid through Election Day on Nov. 8.

The Democratic Party Experience includes lunch for two at Bar Dupont with cheeseburgers (a favorite of Bill Clinton's); a $150 gift card to Brooks Brothers to recreate Harry S. Truman's signature look; two tickets to The Spy Museum for James Bond fan John Kennedy; a private VIP tour of the Verizon Center; and a copy of President Obama's favorite movie, "Casablanca," to take home.

The Republican Party Experience includes two hand-rolled cigars from W. Curtis Draper Time Tobacconist, Ulysses S. Grant's guilty pleasure; a $150 gift card to Brooks Brothers, where Abraham Lincoln had all his suits made; vouchers for oysters and beer at Bar Dupont, honoring Lincoln's favorite food; a round of golf on a local course, in honor of Dwight D. Eisenhower's favorite pastime; a teddy bear take-home souvenir, named for Theodore Roosevelt; and a copy of the "Knute Rockne, All American" movie, along with a bag of jelly beans, Ronald Reagan's top choice.

The Slice of the City: Your Vote, Your Stay package is priced from $629 per night, double, with a two-night minimum stay. Both versions include a presidential-inspired selection of in-room books and political party-themed puzzles; and Democrat or Republican party chocolates by D.C.-based chocolatier Harper Macaw.
