Photos on Friday: Old Post Office/Trump International Hotel (Washington D.C.)

I thought for today's Photos on Friday I'd post recent photos of the Old Post Office building/Trump International Hotel since I recently learned tours of the clock tower have recently resumed. They had been closed a couple of years ago due to the transformation of the Old Post Office Pavilion into the new hotel. Tours quietly resumed in February and I didn't find out until April when I was looking for the information.
View of the Old Post Office. The building is even much bigger than it looks here.

In the past I've taken the elevator to the top and it really does offer a fantastic view. 
The tower is currently one of the best options of getting a bird's eye view of the District since the Washington Monument elevator is closed until 2019 for repairs.

The National Park Service is still running the tours and they are free of charge. If you're in town and interested in going to the top of this historic building, it's said to use the 12th St. NW entrance, located just south of Pennsylvania Ave. NW. The clock tower is open every day, except Thanksgiving and Christmas, with hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (last entry 4:30 p.m). 

This is an older photo taken from the top of the clock tower
