Kimpton Glover Park Hotel, Kimpton’s tenth hotel in Washington, DC, has welcomed its first guests.
Perched above a tree-lined, picturesque neighbourhood on the border of Glover Archbold Park just north of Georgetown, the Glover Park Hotel is designed to provide an alluring getaway, while situated minutes from the heart of the city.
The project is a collaboration between Kimpton, DC-based developer Foxhall Partners and Iron Point Partners as the group’s second design-driven boutique hotel in Northwest Washington, following the introduction of The Carlyle Dupont Circle last year.
Foxhall hand selected the hotel as well as the partners involved in its revitalisation to elevate the hotel’s unique, local offerings and one-of-a-kind style and design.
The hotel’s connection to nature, an inspiration taken from the neighbourhood’s namesake – Charles Carroll Glover – who helped shape the city’s most iconic parks, is reflected throughout thanks to world renowned artist Michele Oka Doner’s vision, blending a metropolitan edge with familial comfort and tranquillity.
A plethora of surrounding green spaces and parks, coupled with Oka Doner’s proclivity for abstract organic art combine to create an aesthetic that is both youthful and sophisticated, perfect for those seeking an upscale getaway.
Guests will be greeted by thoughtful design pieces including a custom map of Rock Creek Park on the property’s eight-story façade, original mixed-media artwork and handmade light fixtures by the artist herself and a variety of natural textiles throughout the communal spaces.
Glover Park Hotel features ample accommodations that will be similarly enveloped in a calming green and white botanical colour scheme, punctuated with luxurious wood finishes and playful accents.
Twenty-five of the 154 premier guest rooms feature unobstructed views of the National Mall and Potomac River, a treat for anyone longing to relish the iconic sites.
In addition, those who desire extra time in the nation’s capital will appreciate the 21 fully equipped kitchenette rooms, each of which include a small refrigerator, Keurig coffee maker, microwave, dishes, glassware and utensils.
Guests can rest easy with completely reappointed light-filled rooms, memory foam beds, Doner’s custom artwork and modern work desks.
For those planning memorable meetings and events, Glover Park Hotel will offer over 2,800 square feet of meeting space including the Walnut Room, a 1,860 square foot ballroom washed in natural light for weddings, large events and meetings of up to 200 guests.
Steps from the hotel’s living room and Casolare is the 1,000 square foot restored sophisticated Tunlaw Terrace, an open-air space best suited for events of up to 150 guests.
Casolare will provide catering for all events and meetings at Glover Park Hotel with completely customized menu options.
