“Intended to serve as a neighborhood hideaway to in-the-know guests, the hotel will embrace a sophisticated residential design and serve as an exclusive jumping-off point to enjoy the District’s most popular bars, restaurants and boutiques,” Kimpton said in a statement, referring to the 14th Street corridor.
