New York-based interior designer Tony Chi is known for being a perfectionist. Because of this, that made him perfect for the job to totally redesign Washington, D.C.’s award-winning hotel, Park Hyatt.
In a multi-million dollar renovation, Chi updated the lobby and 216 guest rooms with a modern style that utilizes rich woods, gold accents, and custom glasswork by photographic glass artist Amanda Weil.
Chi previously redesigned the hotel in 2006. In this recent renovation, the new features are mainly seen in the deluxe king, deluxe double, and junior suites. Here, there are 100 percent natural vegetable fiber wall coverings, custom-designed plaid wool rugs, and rich walnut wood platform beds, complete with leather headboards and reading lights, according to a press release.
The color palate incorporates denim blue, “cracked caramel,” and blue-grey hues. In order to further emphasize the hotel’s placement in the nation’s capital, the deluxe rooms also now feature tables with inlaid cherry blossom glass art.
The hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Blue Duck Tavern also now offers a “Seasonal Garden Table,” rooftop garden, and garden-inspired cocktail series.
Starting late April, there are plans for the hotel’s mezzanine level to showcase an exclusive collection of “spring-like art” from The Phillips Collection in Dupont Circle.
Park Hyatt is located in D.C.’s West End neighborhood at 1201 24th Street NW. It is less than half a mile away from the nearest Metro station and a little over a mile away from the White House.
