Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 10, 2009
The JW Marriott Hotel Washington, DC, celebrating 25 years, recently completed the last phase of a $40 million renovation to all 772 guest rooms and suites, meeting space and the atrium lobby. The high-tech, high-style renovation offers the latest innovations and a fresh, modern design featuring an understated luxury and elegance. Situated on Pennsylvania Avenue in the heart of downtown Washington, DC, the 15-story luxury hotel is owned by Host Hotels & Resorts and is managed by Marriott International, Inc.
"We're very excited about the new look and feel of our guestrooms, suites and lobby," said Scott Nadeau, general manager. "We know our guests want authentically crafted comfort, purposeful luxury and style, but they also want a space they can tailor to their needs, whether it's working, relaxing, or dining. We have delivered that and more."
All guestrooms and suites at this modern hotel in Washington DC feature a clean and crisp look and feature Marriott's new, more luxurious bedding with plusher mattresses, softer sheets and more pillows. All rooms come equipped with a 37-inch high-def LG® plasma screen television and a plug-in technology panel that provides guests with multi-tasking abilities through versatile multimedia usage.
The redesigned Presidential and Vice-Presidential suites at this renovated downtown DC hotel have access to the 7,000 square foot terrace overlooking Pennsylvania Avenue, boasting views of the Capitol Building and the Washington Monument. The suites are over 1,700 square feet and feature 50-inch HD LG® televisions and one touch lighting controls. The newly renovated Presidential suites have conference sized tables with multi-media plug-in capabilities. The largest suite features a custom spa shower and tub featuring Kohler's DTV® electronic interface with sound and ambient lighting effects.
The renovated hotel's atrium lobby has been updated with a sophisticated urban look that blends informal elegance with modern technology. The contemporary color tones, cherry wood paneling and leather wrapped columns throughout the lobby create an ambience that is both dynamic and comfortable. Semi-private seating areas allow guests to socialize, work and play. With Wi-Fi through out the hotel, guests can work on their personal laptops or kick up their feet on oversized chairs and relax in front the media walls with flat screen high-def televisions.
