WASHINGTON, D.C. – April 18, 2016 – Hyatt and Crestline Hotels & Resorts, LLC (Crestline) announced today the opening of Hyatt Place Washington DC/Georgetown/West End. The 168-room hotel is located at 2121 M Street NW, and was developed by Washington, DC-based Renaissance Centro, which enjoys a 30-year legacy of nationally recognized projects throughout the DC metro area. Hyatt Place Washington DC/Georgetown/West End is managed by Crestline, which is based in Fairfax, VA.
The nine-story hotel with rooftop terrace was designed by local architecture firm JN+A, and interior designer HVS. They worked together to capture the spirit of this historic DC-neighborhood by incorporating local elements and community relationships into the hotel’s offerings. Renaissance Centro commissioned local artist Drew Smith to create a photo mural that adorns the fitness center and pool area, and the artist and his work will be featured at the hotel’s Grand Opening along with a showing of other local artists. Additionally, Hyatt Place Washington DC/Georgetown/West End is collaborating with George Washington University to use the hotel’s development and opening as a case study for graduate students in the university’s hospitality program. Community influence continues with the hotel’s 24/7 Gallery Menu and Market where guests will find samplings of flavors from local artisans—from coffee to donuts to locally-brewed craft beer and regionally sourced food. Guests are encouraged to get out and explore the iconic neighborhood by providing maps, complimentary bicycles, helmets, and water bottles.
“Georgetown/West End is Washington DC’s most historic and legendary neighborhood,” said hotel General Manager Kevin Varr. “We are thrilled to be a part of its vibrancy and look forward to contributing to the neighborhood with community involvement, and by encouraging our guests to learn about its culture and unique offerings.”
