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.
