Statesman Hotel is a twelve-story hotel located at the intersection of Salem Street and Basso Boulevard at Vernon Square in Washington, D.C.

The Statesman Hotel plays a role in the Reilly's Rangers quest, as well as having ties to Stealing Independence and Agatha's Song. Reilly's Rangers (except for Reilly) are stranded on the rooftop, fighting off super mutants.


The Statesman Hotel served pre-War upper-class clientele.[1] The hotel has two entrances; one on street level, and one accessed from the nearby hospital.


To reach the majority of this building, you must go through Our Lady of Hope Hospital and cross the fallen radio mast. The building is inhabited by super mutants and centaurs, but is a good source of ammunition and explosives. Meanwhile, the hotel is divided into four sections; the ground floor, mid-level, restaurant, and roof.

Notable loot

Because the hotel can be quite confusing, the loot is listed from the first floor to the roof.

Bottom floor (accessible from the street)

Mid level

  • Theo's ammunition box, in the first (southwest) stairwell you reach upon entering the Statesman from the fallen tower bridge. It is part of the Reilly's Rangers quest.
  • A note from Little Moonbeam's father -- one way to get Sydney's 10mm "Ultra" SMG from Sydney after completing Stealing Independence. The note is under a skeleton lying on a white single bed. The bed, opposite a queen-sized bed, is in a suite on the 3rd floor (the second new floor you reach after finding Theo), near the center of the map, one section south of the elevator to the hotel restaurant.
  • Chinese Army: Special Ops Training Manual on the top floor of the middle level (one floor higher than the elevator to the restaurant). It's in a small room off the hallway that leads to the stairs to the upper level. As you are headed to the stairs the room is on the right (interior side). The room will have plungers on the floor in the corner and a bookshelf in front with a row of desk lamps. In the bookshelf, lower left corner next to some Abraxo Cleaner boxes. Not to be confused with the locked janitor closet on the same floor.


  • A Grognak the Barbarian is on a shelf in the Alfresco Lounge bar area at the middle of main room. Next to a sawed-off shotgun, ammunition and ammunition boxes.
  • A Nuka-Cola Quantum is on a shelf in the bar area behind the counter near the sawed-off shotgun mentioned above.
  • If you don't have one and need one for fixing the elevator, the building's sole Fission Battery is located on a maintenance protectron in a closet behind the southwest set of stairs in the main Alfresco Lounge bar.


Related quests


  • Warning: During the Reilly's Rangers quest, it is possible for the player to be temporarily trapped in this building if the fission battery used for repairing the roof's elevator is lost. If this occurs, the player will need to backtrack to the entrance to the hotel with the fallen antenna, and fast-travel to escape. The hotel roof is a separate area and not considered outside for the purposes of fast-travel.
  • Just outside the entrance of the hotel is a crashed Delta IX rocket. This missile seems to be pumping out a disagreeable amount of radiation, and also appears to have drawn several super mutants into the exposed sewer at the base of its crater. Inside the sewers, a D.C. Journal of Internal Medicine, scoped .44 magnum in decent condition, Stealth Boy and a small supply of ammunition and chemicals can be found. The radiation in these tunnels can be lethal without a rad-suit (one can be found in the personal protection shelter) or a supply of Rad-X/RadAway.
  • There is a box of ammunition in the hotel's stairwell next to a deceased member of Reilly's Rangers (Theo). The box can only be unlocked using a code given by Reilly herself. Reilly can be found lying on a bed in Underworld's hospital, tended to by Doctor Barrows. You can either revive her with a high Medicine skill or ask Dr. Barrows to wake her up with a speech check to commence Reilly's Rangers quest. Upon listening to her story and accepting the quest, Reilly will give you the code for the ammunition box.
  • There appears to be a man who drank himself to death with Nuka-Cola next to a Nuka-Cola vending machine in the mid-level of the hotel.
  • If you have cleared the Hotel before, an encounter on the bottom floor may include a super mutant overlord and 4-6 super mutant masters and super mutant brutes and on the roof there may be two super mutant overlords (if you have Broken Steel).

The Statesman Hotel appears in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenes

  • In one of the rooms, there is a skeleton in a bathtub that is posed in striking resemblance to Jacques-Louis David's The Death of Marat, a famous painting of the death of French journalist/politician Jean-Paul Marat.
  • The Statesman Hotel is based on the real-life Willard Hotel.


  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png After going to the hotel from the hospital, there will be rubble in the way when going down the hall. It is possible to get stuck just behind the rubble and you won't be able to move. Loading an auto-save should solve this problem.
    • You can also use grenades on the rubble. Sometimes, this will shift the pile enough for you to get out.
  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png When you enter the Statesman Hotel where you come up a room with a elevator which leads to the roof and you have any follower following you he will disappear to not to return if you don't let him wait before using the elevator.
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png After crossing from Our Lady of Hope Hospital, the player can become trapped within the building and cannot access the restaurant. Entering the restaurant will cause the game to freeze when loading and you will need to restart the console.
  • Upon entering the Hotel normally on the ground level after going up the stairs to the right and to the express elevator, the two tables next to it will be floating in mid-air.
  • PCIcon pc.png On the level with the Alfresco Lounge, if you choose not to pick the door, the super mutant that attacks you in the room with the collapsed floor/ceiling may appear to rise into the air and float there, attacking you as if the floor were still in place.
  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Sheet Music Book may not spawn. The cause is unknown.
