The W Washington D.C. hotel is finally showing off the results of a big renovation that began more than a year ago. “It’s been a decade since W Washington D.C. opened its doors and forever transformed the nation’s capital with a bold and dynamic energy that has been embraced by the city’s power players and visitors alike,” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, W Hotels. “This complete reimagining further cements the hotel as the ultimate can’t-miss destination in the heart of the city and it also marks an important and exciting milestone in our substantial renovation strategy currently underway at many of our W properties in North America.”
A sleek waterfall greets guests upon entry—an homage to the city’s many memorials that use water. The welcome desk has large glass columns which pull from the surrounding architecture. Political cartoons referring freedom of speech by artist Amit Greenberg are wrapped around the desks of each welcome desk pod.
The hotel’s lobby—the “Living Room”—includes a geometric-shaped lobby bar, a mirrored ceiling that evokes the city’s reflective memorials, cut-out graphics of lobbyist symbols stamped into the Living Room’s archways, and a replica of the Capitol’s dome ceiling fresco (“The Apotheosis of Washington”) above the bar.
