The Darcy, a contemporary hotel located just six blocks from the White House and around the corner from the trendy 14th Street corridor in Washington, D.C., is now part of the Curio Collection by Hilton.

The Darcy Washington D.C., Curio Collection by Hilton, joins the rapidly-growing collection brand of locally authentic hotels as its first property in the nation’s capital. A destination unto itself not far from the cosmopolitan Logan Circle neighborhood, The Darcy—which takes its name from a well-dressed and well-traveled fictional character—is a short walk from four Metro stations and D.C.’s noted landmarks.

“The Darcy Washington D.C. is as eclectic and remarkable as the district it serves, delivering a truly authentic experience for guests looking for one-of-a-kind discoveries,” said Mark Nogal, global head, Curio Collection by Hilton and Tapestry Collection by Hilton. “Newly recreated, The Darcy exudes the spirit of its destination as do all Curio Collection hotels … through ambiance and local partnerships.”

The Darcy Washington D.C.’s design, led by Christian Schnyder, owner and principal of the prestigious Beleco Designs in Los Angeles, is inspired by the American Beauty Rose, the city’s official flower. Its look intersperses European-inspired elements of mixed wood with distressed metals and bright colors.

Restaurants include seafood-focused Siren, offering up seafood reeled in form the world’s waterways, and the more casual Lil’ B Coffee & Eatery, a street-level hangout serving a southern-inspired menu.

The Darcy holds a variety of flexible meeting spaces, including the Logan Ballroom for up to 200.
