Watergate Stake-Out Site Up for Sale


The infamous former Howard Johnson hotel, where the Watergate burglars were staked out during the Democratic National Headquarters break-in across the street, has been put up for sale by George Washington University after it abandoned plans for a $35 million renovation last year. The university acquired the property in 1999, converting it into the Hall on Virginia Avenue, a graduate student residence. The 200-room, 20,407-square-foot building is assessed at $25.6 million. A price has not yet been set by broker CBRE Group Inc.
