The Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel, located at 999 9th Street at K Street, NW, has announced the completion of the redesign of its 807 guestrooms and suites, a $30-million investment by its owners, Sunstone Hotels. Renaissance Hotels is a lifestyle brand within the Marriott International Inc. global portfolio.
Created by Dash Design of New York, the guestrooms and guest corridor interiors along with its customs furnishings are said to reflect an interpretation of quintessential casual American fashion and tailored design.
Guests will find a neutral color palate of khaki and coco-browns with splashes of reinterpreted denim blues and reds. Each room is accented with clean and modern furniture. The leather lounge and desk chairs are inspired by twentieth century modernism. LED reading pin lights are mounted on headboards within reach.
The spa-like bathrooms have rain forest shower heads, backlit mirrors and accent wall coverings featuring a custom collage of historic events in Washington from 1940 to 1970. Artwork capturing glimpses of Washington, DC’s history pop in the guest rooms in the form of presidential profiles, signatures, and the city’s original design plans of Pierre Charles L’Enfant.
Business and leisure travelers both will appreciate the maximization of space and functionality with a six foot work surface, upgraded wireless internet and 18-inch laptop safes; and will enjoy amenities like a built-in mini-refrigerator, i-pod docking station, Aveda spa products, and 40-inch HDTV.
The Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel is situated at 999 9th Street at K Street, NW across from Mt. Vernon Square and the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and a myriad of dining, nightlife, and shopping experiences in Washington DC’s Chinatown and Penn Quarter districts. With 64,000 square feet of flexible function space and 30 breakout rooms, the lifestyle hotel is considered to be a premier meeting and convention destination. The hotel is home to local lifestyle fitness center, Vida Fitness featuring 6,000 square feet of cardio, strength and resistance equipment, and the 4,000 square foot Aura spa offering a variety of customized treatments.
Renaissance Hotels was acquired by Marriott International in 1997.
