Fairmont Washington, D.C., Georgetown has announced the launch of $27 million renovation of the 415-room luxury hotel. Phase One will begin in December this year and include refurbishment of all rooms including the exclusive Fairmont Gold Floor, lounge, and the conversion of the executive forum amphitheater into a 2,900-square-foot junior ballroom. The additional ballroom will increase group meeting capacity as well as adding entertaining space for social events and weddings. “This exciting project will be complete by April 15, 2016, enhancing both the guest experience and the hotel’s position as the largest luxury group hotel in the nation’s capital,” said Fairmont Washington, D.C., Georgetown’s General Manager, Shane Krige.
The redesign will be led by designers Pierre Josselin and Ayten Nuhoglu of New York-based Wimberly Interiors. Specialty suites will increase from five to seven, and all double guestrooms will feature two queen beds providing ultimate comfort for guests. An upgraded high speed internet system and in-room media panels will keep guests and meeting attendees well connected. A built-in luggage bench, tea station and 49” television will give each room a cozy, residential feel with optimal media viewing. The marble bathrooms will feature large walk-in showers and expansive vanities.
The project is scheduled to be completed by 15 April 2016.
