The Fairmont Washington, D.C. has announced that the 415-room luxury hotel will refurbish 24,000 square feet of its function space beginning November 21. The project will encompass the hotel's ballroom level meeting and pre-function space, the mezzanine level, and the third floor meeting space. The $2.6 million refurbishment is expected to be completed by the end of January 2012.
Also included in the renovation is the installation of Green Label-approved carpeting throughout the property.
All meeting space will, upon completion, provide the latest in technology; while the third floor executive boardrooms will be programmed with wireless touch panels, overhead microphones, and rack-mounted equipment to support audio amplifiers, Blu-Ray players, and audio signal processors. The 5,460 square-foot ballroom, meanwhile, will be renovated for it to be able to accommodate groups of 30 to 700 people.
The redesign is helmed by designer Christina Hart of New York-based BBG-BBGM.
