Watergate Hotel Holds Liquidation Sale
I've covered liquidation sales at the Plaza in New York and the Stardust in Las Vegas but now the famous, or more accurately, infamous Watergate Hotel in Washington D.C. is holding a liquidation sale. The hotel which is getting a posh makeover and plans to re-open in 2009 is selling off beds, silverware, artwork and other items. There are deals to be had on columns, televisions but few items bear the word Watergate and there is nothing there that is connected to the Nixon-era when the Watergate hotel became synonymous with scandal. The sale is this weekend and costs $10 to get in.
