Starwood announced the completion of a $17 million renovation to the Westin Washington, D.C. City Center hotel.  Changes and upgrades were made to the property’s guestrooms, lobby, fitness center, and meeting space, while a new dining venue was also installed.

The hotel’s 406 guestrooms and suites have newly remodeled bathrooms, 50” HD TVs, refrigerators, room safes, and new Westin brand beds. In addition, rooms also offer newly updated room service menus.

The property’s lobby was refurbished, and now features a natural décor, vertical gardens, and flexible seating areas. The traditional check-in desk was also replaced with freestanding check-in pods with work surfaces.

The hotel’s 17,500 square feet (1,626 square meters) of meeting space was also redesigned.  In additional, the property’s 24-hour fitness center was expanded.

A new restaurant, Fringetree, was also built to the hotel’s premises as part of the renovations.  The new venue offers healthy dining options and a wide selection of beer, wine, and cocktails, as well as a grab-and-go counter serving Starbucks coffee and breakfast sandwiches.

The Westin Washington, D.C. City Center is situated on M Street in the city’s downtown area, and is within walking distance of popular attractions such as the White House, the National Mall, and the Smithsonian Institution.
