Hyatt Place Washington DC/Georgetown/West End Opens
WASHINGTON, April 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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.”
Located in Washington’s beautiful West End neighborhood, and adjacent to historic Georgetown, Hyatt Place Washington DC/Georgetown/West End is perfect for business and leisure travelers, and convenient to Embassy Row. The hotel is steps from Georgetown’s shopping, dining and nightlife, while easily accessible to the heart of the nation’s capital via the Washington DC Metro subway system.

Each of the spacious guestrooms feature separate spaces to sleep and work so that guests can relax while staying productive during their visit.
