New, 1 comment

With more rooms, a bigger ballroom, and a rooftop lounge

This June, the Watergate Hotel will reopen for the first time in roughly a decade. At the cost of $125 million, the hotel has been renovated with an "urban resort" feel and a 7,000-square-foot grand ballroom.

Some of the newest additions to the development include that it now has a 350-person rooftop lounge, 1,800-square-foot junior ballroom, and 336 rooms (increased from 251). The Washington Business Journal reported that the hotel houses a dual-patina copper metalwork staircase from Italy and an LED-infused ballroom ceiling. Even the uniforms have been tailored to reflect the luxe vibe of the hotel, each designed by "Mad Men" costumer Janie Bryant.

Other amenities that inside the hotel include a 24-hour fitness center, yoga studios, and a 15-yard swimming pool and whirlpool. Guests will also be able to enjoy a 24-hour concierge, valet parking, and dry cleaning and full laundry services. The on-site restaurant, called Kingbird, is dual-concept with what a press release describes as "American cuisine with a French twist." To top it all off, the Watergate Hotel will also feature a spa as well as a whisky bar.

If interested in getting a taste of what this hotel has to offer, the standard rooms will be priced at $425 per night.
