The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

The Water­gate Ho­tel has an­nounced it is in the process of de­sign­ing a one-of-a-kind “Water­gate Scan­dal Room 214.” The room it­self served as a kind of com­mand post prior to the break-in on June 17, 1972, at the Demo­cratic Na­tional Com­mit­tee of­fices at the Water­gate of­fice com­plex next door.

No word on the par­tic­u­lar de­sign, which pairs Lyn Paolo, the cos­tume de­signer of ABC’s “Scan­dal,” with Rakel Cohen, coowner of the ho­tel it­self. Linens, in-room ameni­ties and closet items will be tweaked to “show­case the prop­erty’s sig­nif­i­cant his­tory and un­der­score the guest room’s al­lure to so many global trav­el­ers,” man­age­ment said.

The ho­tel al­ready em­braces its past; room keys in­clude the phrase “No Need to Break-In,” Pres­i­dent Nixon’s po­lit­i­cal speeches are in­cor­po­rated as “hold mu­sic” in the phone sys­tem, and com­pli­men­tary pen­cils in guest rooms are en­graved with “I Stole This from The Water­gate Ho­tel.”
