Hotel Lobby D.C.

There is a new design-led addition to Washington D.C.’s five-star hotel scene. This 100-key boutique escape is situated in an overall mixed-use development of 1000+ residential units and offers guests a seductive, upscale lodging experience featuring many special touches from the minute you check in.

Upon entering the lobby, guests are immersed in the warmth of the space. At first glance, the indirect lighting peeks out from behind architectural coves in the ceiling, slender niches within the marble wall and tiny tunnels within the floor to wash each surface in a subtle glow. Organic details like the exquisite oak paneling on the walls and columns and the lush walls of greenery adjacent to the lobby bar act to juxtapose the minimal-yet-luxurious honed marble reception desk and feature wall beyond. The furnishings were artfully curated to compliment the muted architectural finishes and include flax linen draperies, sculptural hide-wrapped stools and chiseled limestone tabletops.

From the second-story mezzanine to the elegant ballroom or cozy lobby and bar, this hidden gem’s sleek, natural finishes and gentle lighting scheme imbue the space with a sense of intimacy and repose that draws a refined clientele.
