Hyatt breaks out its latest D.C. hotel

(Hyatt Place D.C.)

Hyatt Place Washington, D.C./Georgetown/West End opened. The 168-room hotel is located at 2121 M Street NW, and was developed by Washington, DC-based Renaissance Centro. The hotel is managed by Crestline Hotels & Resorts, which is based in Fairfax, Va.

The nine-story hotel was designed by local architecture firm JN+A, and interior designer HVS. Renaissance Centro commissioned local artist Drew Smith to create a photo mural that adorns the fitness center and pool area, and the artist and his work will be showcased at the hotel’s grand opening along with the work of other local artists. Additionally, Hyatt Place Washington, D.C./Georgetown/West End is collaborating with George Washington University to use the hotel’s development and opening as a case study for graduate students in the university’s hospitality program.

Community influence continues with the hotel’s 24/7 Gallery Menu and Market where guests will find samplings of flavors from local artisans—from coffee to donuts to locally-brewed craft beer and regionally sourced food. Guests are encouraged to get out and explore the iconic neighborhood by providing maps, complimentary bicycles, helmets and water bottles.

“Georgetown/West End is Washington, D.C.'s most historic and legendary neighborhood,” said Kevin Varr, GM of the hotel. “We are thrilled to be a part of its vibrancy and look forward to contributing to the neighborhood with community involvement, and by encouraging our guests to learn about its culture and unique offerings.”

Located in Washington’s West End neighborhood, and adjacent to historic Georgetown, Hyatt Place Washington, D.C./Georgetown/West End is designed for business and leisure travelers, and is near Embassy Row. The hotel is steps from Georgetown’s shopping, dining and nightlife, while accessible to the nation’s capital via the Washington, D.C. Metro subway system.
