Washington Marriott Georgetown, the first Marriott hotel built in the nation’s capital in 1981, completed a $28 million transformation, an investment by hotel owner, Geller Capital Partners.

Representing Marriott Hotels’ massive reinvention efforts, evolving everything from hotel design to associate training, the Washington Marriott Georgetown is Marriott International’s first fully redesigned property in the Washington, D.C. metro area, and will serve as an example of the latest and greatest the brand has to offer.

“We want our guests to experience forward-thinking, aesthetically pleasing spaces that help foster their inventive nature,” said Matthew Carroll, vice president, Marriott Hotels. “Marriott Hotels has consistently pushed the boundaries of innovation in travel to create experiences that inspire and push our guests’ creativity. Washington Marriott Georgetown has accomplished this and more.”

The newly transformed Washington Marriott Georgetown lies in the heart of the city’s West End neighborhood, an area noted for its tree-lined residential streets, embassies and critically-acclaimed restaurants, including the city’s first Nobu, scheduled to open later this year. The neighborhood has also become the city’s fitness hub, with brands establishing West End footprints including SoulCycle, Orange Theory, Equinox and the forthcoming Squash on Fire, a 19,700-square-foot squash facility opening its doors in May.

The hotel is within walking distance to Georgetown, Foggy Bottom and Dupont Circle.

Washington Marriott Georgetown’s renovation added 8,300 square feet of new public space, a completely reimagined F&B program, 18 meeting rooms, a new fitness center and the M Club Lounge. The hotel’s guest rooms feature the new “Marriott Modern Design” room where the experience meets the needs of today’s traveler by offering flexibility, mobility and technology-enabled work surfaces.

The hotel also transformed its 18 meeting rooms and added three new rooms including the new 4,800 square-foot Metropolitan Ballroom, making a total 22,000 square feet of above ground flexible event space. Many meeting spaces feature floor to ceiling windows, while all include a flexible setup.
