Valerie I have been on a tour of the White House twice, and I believe that the tour guide mentioned that, but I can't remember, so I am going to guess at 60.

Posted by George Souto, Your Connecticut Mortgage Expert (George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages) over 9 years ago

I chose (A 35) because (E 132) does not seem possible to have one bathroom for each room.  And using the process of elimination, B C and D are out.

Posted by Dee Mayers, San Gabriel Valley, CA over 9 years ago

I'm going with Dee's answer above - okay, I admit, I was thinking 32, but since that's not a choice, I'm going with 35.  I've been to the WH a number of times over the years, thanks to growing up in VA and now living in the DC area, but I never heard how many bathrooms there are!

B is my answer Valerie! Of course, I'd only have 2 if I had to clean them!

Valerie...I'm going with the maximum number of bathrooms, all of Washington is Full of SH&t and the White House is the central pile of the same.

Hi Valerie:

My guess is 35...

60 (and the rest of the options) seems too many....

Posted by Toula Rosebrock, Broker/Sales Associate, Realtor, Lacey Township, (Diane Turton, Realtors, Forked River, NJ) over 9 years ago

I like Steve's answer, but I'm thinking A is the actual answer.  60 or more seems too high.

Posted by Debbie Gartner, The Flooring Girl & Blog Stylist -Dynamo Marketers (The Flooring Girl) over 9 years ago

35 is plenty but, knowing how important it is for the VIP to have their privacy I would say 132.

Are wwe talking full bath or all baths together, lol.  It should be 'A' but like Steve says!!!

Posted by Randi Brammer, Accountant & Tax Preparer (Randi Brammer, Acctg.) over 9 years ago

Valerie, with 132 rooms, there should never be a wait, but as part of the White House is sealed off as a private residence accessibility wold be important. My guess would be either C:60 or D:75, and I would probably lean to C:60. Assuming at least 5-10 for the private residence for obvious reasons then another 10-15 for those areas where there are public bedrooms. (Think Lincoln's room had a private bath?)  that leaves 25-35 for the rest of the place, and as it is the White House, you would not expect to be telling people that they need to walk down 4 corridors and up 2 flights of stair to go.

I would also like to thank you for the Honorable mention on last week's trivia. And I am sorry for making you with the repaired hip, ROFLMAO. I hope you didn't hurt yourself

Hi Valerie,

Sorry I missed you last week. Don't know where the time went!!

Now, this question sounds very familiar. Didn't you ask this once before or was it Buckingham Palace??  Anyway, I know Buckingham Palace has 78 so the Whitehouse must be way less than that. I'll plump for A) 35.


Posted by Steve Merson 512 412 1621, CNE, e-PRO (Keller Williams Realty) over 9 years ago

I'm going to go with the SAT strategy of, if you don't know, pick C.  75 seems like a lot, but maybe they're counting outhouses too.


Posted by Team Honeycutt (Allen Tate) over 9 years ago

I know there are 28 fireplaces and 5 chefs, thinking about bathrooms?????  I have to guess A 35 - for the era this place was built, it couldn't be 75 or 100+ ... I think 35 makes the most sense.  Not that anything in Washington makes "sense"....

Posted by April Hayden-Munson, Brookfield Wisconsin Real Estate over 9 years ago

I'm with Ed. I think 60 or 75. I am guessing when they have "state dinners" and with all the staff, they need to be scattered everywhere and in groups of 5-6 male and female.
