Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is pleased to announce its tenth hotel property in Washington, D.C. – Kimpton Glover Park Hotel. Currently operating as the Savoy Suites Hotel, the 154-room property is undergoing a significant, multimillion-dollar renovation, rebrand and redesign of all guest rooms, public areas, restaurant, outdoor and event spaces and will officially join the Kimpton portfolio as the Glover Park Hotel in spring 2016.
Situated along Wisconsin Avenue in a tree-lined, residential neighbourhood on the border of Glover Archbold Park just north of Georgetown, Kimpton Glover Park Hotel is designed to be an alluring retreat. World-renowned artist Michele Oka Doner’s conceptual vision for the hotel was inspired by the neighbourhood’s namesake, Charles Carroll Glover – a famed banker and philanthropist who donated nearly 3,000 acres of parkland including nearby Rock Creek Park.
From the outside, a creatively stylised map of Rock Creek Park will adorn the Glover Park Hotel’s eight-story façade facing Wisconsin Avenue and is bound to become a local landmark. Inside, guests will find themselves in a metropolitan oasis. Upscale, urban touches such as brick walls, wood and steel finishes, rounded signature furnishings and abstract patterns bring together a creative, youthful vibe. Generously sized guest rooms will be enveloped in elegant, calm colours and woodsy textures with naturally-finished furnishings and original collage artwork by Oka Doner depicting branching plants found in nearby parks. Twenty-five of Glover Park Hotel’s guest rooms have sweeping views of the National Mall and Potomac River, and 21 rooms will have kitchenettes – ideal for families and those who plan a longer stay.
The hotel’s top-to-bottom transformation will also include a full-service destination-dining restaurant, a new 1,860 square-foot ballroom with ample natural light for meetings and social events of up to 150 guests, restored outdoor space, and a boutique-style gym from Graham King’s Urban Athletic Club.
“We believe that the same way Charles Glover refashioned the city, the Kimpton Glover Park Hotel will transform hospitality in this part of Northwest Washington when it debuts this coming spring,” says Matthew Hurlburt, Area Director of Operations for Kimpton’s mid-Atlantic hotels.
The Glover Park Hotel will offer all of Kimpton’s signature touches, from complimentary morning coffee, tea service and nightly hosted wine hours, to custom maps of the neighbourhood including nearby park trails. Other guest amenities will also include Gaiam yoga mats in every guest room, luxurious bath products, 300 thread-count Frette linens, complimentary Wi-Fi and other perks for Kimpton Karma Rewards members.
