Washington, DC’s The Embassy Row Hotel begins phase one of $15M renovation

Located in Washington, D.C., The Embassy Row Hotel, by Destination Hotels & Resorts, embarked on a $15-million renovation. The phase one in the multi-million dollar renovation will transform the hotel's rooftop terrace and pool just in time for summer.

The Embassy Row Hotel offers the only outdoor rooftop terrace in Dupont Circle with views of the city, including a view of the Washington Monument. The rooftop terrace and pool, located on the ninth floor, will be completely renovated in less than three months. The outdoor atmosphere will be updated with teak plush seating, modern landscape architecture and the addition of food and beverage service. Expected completion of the rooftop terrace and pool is June 2014.

In phase two, the hotel renovations of all nine floors and 231 guestrooms will include a new redesigned lobby, a social bar, grab-n-go barista station, new meeting space, and a new fitness studio. Decor in the guestrooms and common areas will reflect its Washington, D.C. origin, re-styled with a whimsical modern inspired design. The lobby bar will open up to outdoor seating overlooking Embassy Row and have light bites, unique drinks and outlets for connected visitors.
