DSC_0527Marriott International announced the completion of a $50 million renovation project at the W Washington DC.

Originally the Hotel Washington when it opened in 1917, the project at the Beaux Arts building included a complete redesign of all guest rooms and a reimagined Living Room lobby.

The hotel’s 326 guest rooms, now with a studio layout, retain their classical architecture with the addition of what the hotel calls “playful references” to the city.  The studio layout includes modular seating, open-flow bathrooms, a Mix Bar minibar, and side tables in the shape of the Washington Monument, as well as green window-seat sofas that convert into a bed.  Guest room pillows feature caricatures of U.S. presidents.

The hallways are adorned with neon artworks by Amit Greenberg that the artist says were inspired by presidential portraits.

Dining options for guest include Cherry and the Corner Office. Both establishments are helmed by Chef William Morris. Cherry features an open kitchen with a grill that uses a blend of cherry and other woods to infuse flavors into various dishes, while Corner Office offers wood-fired pizzas and a variety of beers.

The W Washington DC has 12,000 square feet (1,115 square meters) of meeting space including a rooftop ballroom.
