Freshly renovated downtown D.C. gem with an understated vibe and power dining possibilities
The unified design by Studio Architecture and interior designer Dominick Coyne melds the limestone building's 1960s architecture with a style that's part historic DC, part modern-day residential. In the expansive lobby, taupes and grays mingle with tufted leather club chairs and sofas in shades of orange, chocolate-brown and ivory. Custom carpets and window treatments feature a prominent octagonal pattern, a nod to President James Madison's stay at the Octagon House after the British burned the White House in 1814. Arrangements of collected and found framed antique prints and oil paintings add polish to the space.
Bed and Bath
All 356 guestrooms and suites echo the muted palette of the public spaces. Tufted leather chairs and sofas blend with coordinated wood furnishings, creating nooks for reading and working. Plush beds are dressed in 300-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens and backed by accent walls in gray toile wallpaper. Bathrooms feature large showers lined with neat rows of antique white subway tiles, and sinks set into marble-topped dark wood vanities.
Come April, celebrity chef Jose Garces's new Argentinian steak house will add buzz to the corner of 15th and M. Until then, guests can meander through the lobby, stopping for lattes and baked treats at the glossy barista bar, or have a proper sit-down over malted vanilla waffles or an artfully stacked burger at Post Script. The comfortably chic Lobby Bar is ideal for end-of-day libations such as the Washingtonian, a tasty mix of huckleberry vodka, lavender and cranberry.
