What Our Visitors Say
“Thanks again for allowing us to stay at your site. I believe this is our 8th time staying at the Washington Seminar Center!  It’s always been such a wonderful experience staying at your church. It’s nice because the students have more together time than they would at a regular hotel. ”
– Soraya , leader of 55-member group from Florida, 2013

Welcome to the Washington Seminar Center!

We offer the ideal spot in the city to launch your program – be that a mission trip, retreat, choir tour, service learning project, or visit to lobby your representatives.

Stay in our affordable and welcoming group hostel accommodation perfect for sleeping as well as meals and activities. You can also receive advice, guidance and resources in designing your most memorable and meaningful program ever!

Located blocks from the Nation’s Capitol in the heart of Washington, DC, The Washington Seminar Center is a low-cost lodging/meeting facility for groups visiting the nation’s capital with educational, social, political, and spiritual objectives in mind.

Our overnight facility, with its close proximity to famous institutions, allows youth and adult groups from across the country access to an inner-city environment that also happens to be home to our national government. With more than 1,600 program participants annually, we provide opportunities for visitors to learn about important national and international issues, as well as mission opportunities with people right here on Capitol Hill.
