W Hotels Worldwide unvelied the W Washington D.C., its first hotel in the U.S. Capital.
The property is the W brand's 25th hotel in North America and 32nd globally. Located just steps from the White House and owned by Nakheel Hotels, W Washington D.C. takes over the historic former Hotel Washington, which opened in 1917.
The hotel features rooftop bar and lounge POV (Point of View), W Living Room, and two firsts for Washington D.C. - J&G Steakhouse, from three-star Michel Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and Bliss Spa.
The Hotel has preserved the historic building’s Beaux Arts architecture, while superimposing the edgy designs of Los Angeles-based designer Dianna Wong. In the W Living Room (W's take on the traditional hotel lobby) many of the building’s original architectural elements have been restored to their former luster, including famed plaster moldings, chandeliers and grand arches.
The W Washington D.C. has 317 guest rooms, including 23 Marvelous suites, seven WOW suites and an Extreme WOW suite (W's reinterpretation of the traditional Presidential Suite). The hotel also features more than 12,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including The Great Room and Altitude Room, overlooking the Washington cityscape. Other amenities include SWEAT fitness center, Wired business center, 24-hour in-room dining and dry cleaning, laundry and valet services. W Washington D.C. also offers the W brand’s signature Whatever/Whenever service promise, providing guests with whatever they want, whenever they want it.
