“In the world!” corrected Enokido, longtime president of the historic hotel, who a few years ago enclosed its roof to create one of the most in-demand event spaces in town, overlooking the White House and Washington Monument. Where else, then, for her retirement party? Bob Bennett, Diane Rehm, Lucky Roosevelt, Phil Pillsbury and other longtime friends came to laud Enokido’s 23 years at the helm. “It’s really hard to leave because I’m still passionately in love with this hotel — this is like my baby,” she told the crowd. She’s moving to New Hampshire to write, paint and take photos: “My bucket list is very long.”
