The 360-room, 10-floor hotel was designed by Pritzker Prize laureates Herzog & de Meuron. It has 30,000 square feet of retail space on its ground floor and 32,000 square feet of meeting space, all above ground level and unlike any other hotel in Washington D.C. Rottet Studio designed the interiors.

The hotel also worked with production architect and hotel consultant HKS Inc., as well as landscape architecture firm Gustafson Guthrie Nichol. Curated by consulting firm Tatar Art Projects, the hotel’s art collection pays homage to the city’s historical roots tying back to the Washington Color School.
