Origin of "Lobbying"

According to folklore, The Willard Hotel is often considered to be the place where we get the word "lobbying" because, as President Ulysses S. Grant would frequently have a brandy and a cigar in the lobby of the Willard, men seeking favors would talk to him there. Would be cool to check it out one of these Wednesday afternoons.
