Destination Hotels & Resorts has added The Embassy Row Hotel in Washington, D.C. to its growing portfolio of distinctive hotels and resorts and its expanding Destination Urban Collection in key city centers across the country. Under Destination management, the 231-room property, located at 2015 Massachusetts Ave NW in the heart of Dupont Circle and Embassy Row, will undergo a significant renovation and be repositioned as a contemporary independent boutique hotel for the modern day traveler.
The property was acquired by Lowe Enterprises Investors, on behalf of an investment venture that includes Lowe Enterprises, The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America and Allstate Insurance Company.
“We are thrilled to welcome The Embassy Row Hotel to the Destination Hotels & Resorts collection,” said Jamie Sabatier, president and chief operating officer. “Our planned renovation and repositioning for the hotel will create a contemporary property that draws upon and highlights the historic elements of the Nation’s capital and eclectic energy of the Dupont Circle neighborhood.”
The Embassy Row Hotel has 231 guestrooms, approximately 6,650 square feet of meeting space, and a rooftop pool offering expansive city views. The planned renovation, spearheaded by the Destination Design & Construction Group, will upgrade the property to a level where food & beverage, work and social spaces are highly integrated, functional and aesthetically pleasing. Guest rooms will undergo a significant transformation, along with all public areas of the hotel including meeting spaces, corridors, fitness center and the rooftop pool. A new open lobby area will be introduced with an upscale market concept and a classic Washington D.C. bar, capitalizing on the premium location of The Embassy Row Hotel– close to top Washington D.C. restaurants and bars, METRO and more than 100 foreign embassies, chanceries and diplomatic residences.
Leading the staff at The Embassy Row will be General Manager Shawn Jervis. A Destination Hotels & Resorts veteran, Jervis brings more than 25 years of hospitality experience, most recently as General Manager for Terranea Resort, a Destination resort in Palos Verdes, CA. Jervis and his team will place top priority on implementing the superior Destination customer service culture and establishing the property as a truly preferred Washington D.C. hotel.
