Hilton Washington DC National Mall is gearing up for its April 1, 2019 debut. The hotel is the latest expansion of the brand in Washington and is the product of a multiyear modernization of an existing property at the top of historic L’Enfant Plaza.
Located at the hub of public transit, the hotel adds to the neighborhood 367 guest rooms, 23,000 square feet of meeting and private event spaces and multiple dining options.
The property is situated above the L’Enfant Plaza Metro station, with direct access to metropolitan Washington, D.C. year-round.
“We are so excited to introduce guests to Hilton Washington DC National Mall, not just because of its contemporary design and amenities, but because of the doors it opens [for visitors] to experience D.C.,” said Claudia Eggspuhler, general manager.
Design firm Architecture Inc. and interiors firm Studio HBA conceptualized Hilton Washington DC National Mall’s sleek design to evoke a polished, yet personal decor.
The hotel’s open concept lobby is clean and inviting with white marble flooring, warm wood finishes and metal accents establishing the tone for the hotel’s aesthetic. Flanking the entryway are an executive lounge, Starbucks and marketplace highlighted by striking light pieces which set the mood for the large space.
The hotel will be the first in Washington to offer exclusively King Deluxe beds in every guest room with two king beds in several. Many rooms bring D.C.’s iconic cherry blossoms – a symbol of international diplomacy and the city’s springtime celebration – inside with subtle inspired artwork and floor to ceiling windows.
Rooms boast views overlooking the city’s skyline, the Capitol dome, Smithsonian Castle, Washington National Cathedral and Washington Monument, the Potomac River stretching from south to west, or the secluded rooftop pool.
The hotel will also act as D.C.’s newest venue for events and meetings. The 5,406-square-foot ground floor L’Enfant Ballroom, second floor 4,240-square-foot Gallery Ballroom and 2,109-square-foot sunlit Solarium are each appointed with state-of-the-art audio-visual capabilities.
The poolside reception area will be complete with fire pits, cabanas and a bar, sure to set the scene for galas, fundraisers, and more.
Boardrooms include the hotel’s discreet Caucus Room equipped with a private entrance and foyer, and a plethora of breakout rooms with floorplans suitable for groups of up to 500 people.
The hotel’s culinary program will offer cuisine inspired by the Washington region at the French-inspired L’Enfant Bar & Grill led by Director of Food and Beverage Peter Laufer.
Laufer’s extensive culinary experience promises to delight diners, who can look forward to a sophisticated, thoughtful menu.
The lobby bar sets the scene at the entrance as an ideal place to start or end the evening with nuanced cocktails, local beers, and a curated selection of wines.
Hilton Washington DC National Mall will also house a full-service Starbucks and a grab-and-go marketplace, ideal for guests unwinding during a business trip or relaxing on vacation.
Neighbors can look for announcements about happy hour and meals in the coming months.
