Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been appointed by CTF Development International to manage the former Capella Washington, D.C., after it acquired the hotel from Castleton Hotel Partners for $65 million.
Now known as the Rosewood Washington, D.C., Rosewood is working with Capella Hotels during the 49-room hotel's transition.
The building was formerly home of the Trial Lawyers Association, and a partnership between Castleton Holdings and Capella Hotel Group transitioned the property into a hotel that opened in 2013. The property is located near the C&O Canal in D.C.'s Georgetown neighborhood. The hotel's interiors includes contemporary works of art and a number of dining options such as the Grill Room, Rye Bar and a rooftop lounge.
“Rosewood Washington, D.C. is an exciting addition to Rosewood’s collection of properties and strengthens our presence in North America,” said Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group. “The hotel draws on the capital’s rich culture and history to express Rosewood’s trademark philosophy of ‘A Sense of Place’ in innovative and memorable ways.”
“Capella Washington D.C was our first Capella branded property in the United States and we could not be more pleased by the excellence in which we achieved our vision,” said Horst Schulze, president and CEO of Capella Hotel Group.
