Capitol Rooms 126 and 127 are located in the North Wing of the Restored side of the Capitol – upon entering the Capitol from the North entrance at L and 11th Streets (across and down the street from the Hyatt), turn right and go up the steps into the old, or restored, side of the Capitol. Both Room 126 and 127 are in that hallway.
LOB Room 100 is located in the Legislative Office Building (LOB) at 1020 N Street. The building is directly across from the South entrance to the Capitol and is at the corner of 11th and N Streets. Once in the building, turn left after going through the metal detector – the room is immediately to your left.
Reminder: You will have to go through metal detectors when entering both the Capitol and LOB – all bags and all metal objects will have to be x-rayed.
