The pressure’s on for Burghartz. Over its 30-year history, guests who have been spotted reportedly dining at Bourbon Steak or Seasons restaurant in the five-star Georgetown hotel include Paul McCartney, President Obama and Michelle ObamaMichelle ObamaInstagram taps former Michelle Obama, Clinton aide to lead communications Americans should get used to pop culture blending with politics Michelle responds to Barack with her own Valentine's tweet MORE, George Clooney, Angelina Jolie, Oprah Winfrey, former President Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonDNI official challenges reports of low morale in intelligence community Why the GOP cannot sweep its Milo scandal under the rug Dems worry too much about upsetting others. That needs to stop. MORE, among others.

But Burghartz says he doesn’t get starstruck: “I think over the years we’ve learned to deal with all sorts of celebrities and powerful people and obviously most of them here in D.C. are from the political arena. But we’ve learned to deal with it and really recognize them as individuals, just individuals that are very well known and have particular needs.”

Because he just moved from the Lone Star State, Burghartz hasn’t had a chance to see the sites or even find a permanent place for his family. Luckily, his job has some pretty nice digs handy: “We’re living in the hotel right now because we’re in search of a home ... Everyone takes very good care of us here.”
