DoubleTree by Hilton Washington DC-Crystal City completes $25M renovation

DoubleTree by Hilton Washington DC-Crystal City in Arlington, Va. completed a $25-million renovation of the 631-room property. The transformation included the hotel's guestrooms, entry, two-story lobby and bar. In addition, the hotel upgraded the Wi-Fi system in all guestrooms to increase speed and connectivity.

All DoubleTree by Hilton Washington DC-Crystal City's 631 guestrooms and suites were redesigned and now have soothing colors; DoubleTree by Hilton Sweet Dreams bed; 32-inch LCD television; Cuisinart single-cup coffeemaker; a work desk with ergonomic chair; an upgraded Wi-Fi system; and a digital panel that allows guests to connect and charge several digital devices at once. New lighting and contemporary original artwork complete the look. Meanwhile, the renovated guest bathrooms have Kohler fixtures, granite countertops and deluxe showerheads.

In addition to guestrooms, the hotel completed a lobby renovation. Part of the goal for the redesigned space was to create more areas where guests can socialize or relax more privately. For example, the main bar - previously surrounded by low walls - was opened up and became the focal point of the main lobby area. Along the main window wall, high-back lounge chairs and sectional couches are clustered between partial-height millwork “TV Pods” which give guests a more private gathering area.
