The Hamilton Hotel in Washington D.C., has brought Veep to life for its guests.
HBO’s hit comedy TV show Veep may have ended, but fans of Selina Meyer and company can still experience it — and they don’t even have to watch the reruns.
The show concluded last year after seven seasons, but The Hamilton Hotel in Washington, D.C., has now brought the show to life, sort of.
Guests staying at the 318-room hotel on K Street in America’s capital city can have a presidential experience by checking out a replica of Selina Meyer’s (played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus) Oval Office on the building’s 12th floor.
Not only that, but that replica is decorated with original props from the show, like the Resolute Desk and a massive portrait of America’s first female president.
The Selina Meyer Presidential Suite
If the replicas are not enough, die-hard fans of the show can also rent the “Selina Meyer Presidential Suite.”
This luxurious room has been designed to feel like the character’s brownstone home in Washington D.C. Once inside the suite, guests can do more gawking at original memorabilia from the political satire comedy, including Selina’s Smith College Diploma and a copy of her book, “A Woman First: First Woman.”
It’s all a great way to keep experiencing the now-ended show that won plenty of awards, including several Emmys.

Presidential food and beverage options
No great TV show is complete without a meal and a drink to go with it, which is why The Hamilton Hotel is also offering food and beverage choices fit for a president.
At the hotel’s Via Sophia, an authentic osteria, executive chef Colin Clark serves up serious Italian fare. Home to a true Neapolitan wood-fire pizza, here you can munch on a fresh pie and an elegant charcuterie plate while sipping on a cocktail like the Sprazzi (Grand Marnier, Dated Liqueur, Prosecco, and grapefruit juice).
Finally, for cocktails Society is a moody and intimate cocktail bar that, with only 14 seats, feels exclusive and sleek. With a cocktail selection curated by mixologist Maurizio Arberi, an evening at Society is the place to be seen.
Inspired by the building’s original architect, Jules-Henrí de Sibour, who was a member of Yale’s Skull and Bones Society, “D.C.’s first luxe microbar” is a nod to secret societies.
