Westin Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of over 30 extraordinary hotel brands, has unveiled its latest offering in Washington, DC – Westin Washington, DC Downtown. After a nearly $80 million investment by ownership group, Sunstone Hotel Investors, the 807-room hotel will offer a sophisticated and contemporary blend of well-being experiences, designed for guests to feel inspired, to rejuvenate, and to maintain their wellness routines while on the road.
“From the moment they arrive at Westin Washington, DC Downtown, guests will have endless opportunities to recharge and recover,” said Jennifer Connell, Global Brand Leader, Westin Hotels & Resorts and Vice President, Distinctive Premium Brands, Marriott International. “The hotel’s modern residential design brings the natural world indoors, to create an all-encompassing health and wellness experience that redefines the traditional hotel stay. What better way to further energise business and leisure guests as they travel through the city, than a visit to the largest hotel fitness studio in Washington, DC.”
Designed by leading architecture and design firms Parts and Labor Design, and Leo A Daly, Westin Washington, DC Downtown seamlessly balances the serenity of nature with the energy of the city. The hotel’s architecture and design elements drew inspiration from Potomac stone, which is native to the Washington, DC area. The contrasting use of materials is highlighted by stone in raw and finished states. Once inside, guests will be immersed in a space inspired by biophilic design, layered with the elements of nature, through the integration of sunlight, greenery, and water. The warm and inviting environment provides a place to unwind, with artwork that captures the influence of Washington, DC’s surrounding waterways in the form of ripples, flow, reflection, texture, and movement.
With community at the core, the hotel features the Westin WELL. Knowing that travellers are often dehydrated when they arrive at their destination, the Westin WELL will allow visitors to prioritise their well-being from the moment they arrive. The nourishing dispensary offers sparkling and alkaline options to hydrate and soothe guests.
“Westin Washington, DC Downtown is an urban oasis with something to offer everyone,” said Kori Johnson, General Manager of Westin Washington, DC Downtown. “We have created a space where a focus on well-being comes together in all aspects of the hotel. From our guest rooms and WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio to our lively bar and compelling cuisine, we look forward to bringing Westin’s wellness spirit to life through our brand’s six pillars of well-being.”
