DUPONT: The St. Gregory Hotel Celebrates the National Cherry Blossom Festival's 90th Anniversary with the Ultimate Cherry Blossom Experience

The St. Gregory Hotel, an official sponsor of the National Cherry Blossom Festival, invites guests to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the beloved festival with the Ultimate Cherry Blossom Experience package.  Each year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival commemorates the 1912 gift of 3,000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the city of Washington, DC.  The gift and annual celebration honors the lasting friendship between the United States and Japan and the continued close relationship between the two countries.  This year guests can revel in the cherry blossom's natural beauty while also enjoying a weekend filled with luxurious accommodations, unforgettable experiences and a cherry blossom-inspired libation.
