Historic Washington Marriott Georgetown Transformed
Washington Marriott Georgetown, the first Marriott hotel built in the nation’s capital in 1981, announces the completion of its $28 million transformation, an investment by hotel owner, Geller Capital Partners. Representing Marriott Hotels’ massive reinvention efforts, evolving everything from hotel design to associate training, this is Marriott International’s flagship brand’s first fully redesigned property in the Washington, DC metro area, and is a shining example of the today’s look and feel.“We want our guests to experience forward-thinking, aesthetically pleasing spaces that help foster their inventive nature,” said Matthew Carroll, vice president, Marriott Hotels. “Marriott Hotels has consistently pushed the boundaries of innovation in travel to create experiences that inspire and push our guests’ creativity. Washington Marriott Georgetown has accomplished this and more and we know their guests will be thrilled.”
The newly transformed Washington Marriott Georgetown, situated at 1221 22nd Street at M Street, NW, lies in the heart of the city’s West End neighborhood, an area noted for its tree-lined residential streets, embassies, and critically-acclaimed restaurants, including the city’s first Nobu, scheduled to open later this year. The neighborhood has also become the city’s fitness hub, with brands establishing West End footprints including SoulCycle, Orange Theory, Equinox and the forthcoming Squash on Fire, a 19,700-square-foot squash facility opening its doors in May. The hotel is within walking distance to historic Georgetown, Foggy Bottom, and Dupont Circle providing visitors quick access to shops, museums, and galleries.
Washington Marriott Georgetown’s elevates the guest experience by adding 8,300 square feet of new public space, a completely reimagined food and beverage program, 18 meeting rooms, a new fitness center, and the M Club Lounge. The hotel’s guest rooms feature the new “Marriott Modern Design” room where the experience meets the needs of today’s traveler by offering flexibility, mobility and technology-enabled work surfaces.
“Our hotel now truly exemplifies today’s ideal hospitality experience,” said hotel General Manager Kori Johnson. “In addition to our reinvented space, we offer a great destination as one of the most historic properties in the West End neighborhood. We’re proud to be a part of the neighborhood’s renaissance, contributing to the area’s growth and cementing our place as a destination for visitors and locals.” http://www.travelandtourworld.com/
