Stay like pardoned turkeys “Apple” and “Cider” at D.C.’s W Hotel

This may be a sad, sad day for most turkeys, but not Apple and Cider. President Obama chose these two birds for his annual pardon, a feat he compares to being on Dancing With The Stars, but “the stakes for the contestants was much higher…life.”

“They’ve been living it up on corn feed at the W Hotel,” said Obama. “That’s great advertising … makes me want to stay at the W.”

In case you didn’t know, the W Hotel (named one of our eight great places to stay in D.C. earlier this year) offers a chic rooftop lounge overlooking the White House Lawn.
