The Fairmont Washington, D.C. completes $2.6M meeting space redesign

 The Fairmont Washington, D.C. has announced that the 415-room hotel has completed the refurbishment of 24,000 square-feet of its function space. The project encompassed the hotel's ballroom level meeting and pre-function space, the mezzanine level, and the third floor meeting space.

The $2.6 million refurbishment was completed on January 20.

Among the added features include the “Green Label” approved carpeting, as well as low volatile organic compounds wall coverings and paints.

All meeting spaces now feature Internet docking and charging stations, while the third floor executive boardrooms were reprogrammed with wireless touch panels, overhead microphones and rack-mounted equipment, including audio amplifiers, Blu-Ray players and audio signal processors.

The ballroom's pre-function space now boasts a feature wall, while the 5,460 square-foot ballroom can now hold from 30 to 700 people. Also renovated were the chandeliers, enhanced with crystal beads; and the wall coverings. Black and white artwork is also featured throughout the space.

The redesign was helmed by New York-based BBG-BBGM.

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is a collection of hotels including Fairmont Le Château Frontenac in Québec City, Kenya's Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club, and London's The Savoy, reopening later this year following a restoration program. Fairmont's portfolio includes 56 hotels, with plans to develop over 30 new properties in the coming years in Shanghai, Philippines and India. Fairmont is owned by Fairmont Raffles Hotels International.
