WASHINGTON, DC—The JW Marriott Washington, DC, owned by Host Hotels & Resorts, the flagship of JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Marriott International’s luxury brand, unveiled the multimillion-dollar redesign of its 750 guestrooms, corridors and executive lounge.
“Our new room design was inspired by guest feedback,” said Satinder Palta, general manager, JW Marriott Washington, DC. “Guests asked for a refined, yet welcoming space for work and relaxation, and we have delivered that and more. Although we are making changes to our design aesthetic, our landmark location and the exceptional service that our guests have come to expect will not change.”
“JW Marriott Washington DC holds great significance for the JW Marriott brand and our global portfolio,” said Mitzi Gaskins, VP & global brand manager, JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts. “Originally opened in 1984 as a dedication to our company’s founder from his family, this property has helped pave the way for our brand over the past 30 years.”
In order to keep guests informed of JW Marriott Washington, DC’s luxury evolution, the hotel enlisted its front desk manager, Anthony, to be the renovation liaison. Anthony will be documenting the hotel’s progress in a series of 30-second digital vignettes such as “Guest Influence” and “Design Inspiration.” The rest of the vignettes and a time-lapse video can be viewed on YouTube and Facebook.
The new rooms were inspired by the bespoke nature of a beautifully tailored suit, according to the hotel. The guestrooms feature a color palate of deep chocolate, charcoal and pearl gray with small accents of pink and chrome reminiscent of a stylish pocket square and men’s watch. They also showcase textures of tweed, leather and herringbone stitching, as well as subtle patterns of Greek keys and paisley often seen on men’s neckties.
JW Marriott Washington, DC’s long-standing commitment to sustainability and energy conservation is also reflected in the renovation. The hotel updated all of the guestrooms with energy efficient A/C units and LED light bulbs, reducing guest room energy consumption.
