The Hyatt Place DC/National Mall opens

The new Hyatt Place DC/National Mall is now open. HVS Design provided the interior design for the new hotel in Washington, DC. 

The hotel is part of a mixed-use development and sits on top of a new fire station. The hotel is 12 stories with 214 guestrooms, and the roof has a rooftop bar with views of the DC monuments, National Mall and Potomac River. The hotel also has an outdoor pool, fitness center and meeting rooms.

“The Hyatt Place DC/National Mall is unique project that we are honored to be a part of,” said Christine Shanahan, managing director of design, HVS Design.  “Our designers worked closely with the owner and design team to overcome the hotel’s unique design challenges. The end result is a one-of-a-kind development that blends exceptional design and functionality for the hotel guests and community.”

The design for the hotel’s public areas incorporates key local elements while utilizing textures and colors to accentuate. The organic shape of cherry blossoms was juxtaposed with the structured grid of historic DC in not only the artwork, but in the overall layout of the spaces. The public areas maintain a millennial feel with a selection of loose furniture groupings. The millwork is clad in walnut tones, lending to the warmth of the space.

The Hyatt Place DC/National Mall is owned by E Street Development Group. WDG Architecture is the architect for the hotel and Clark Construction is the general contractor.
