The $27 million dollar transformation of Fairmont Washington, D.C., Georgetown started with the renovation of the 413 beautifully appointed guest rooms and suites, and the addition of the Kennedy Junior Ballroom.

The final touches of the project covered the redesign of the lobby, lounge and outdoor courtyard, which drew inspiration from the geometry of an aerial view of Washington D.C. The color palette, also influenced by this aerial view of D.C., was intensified to add more drama and sophistication to the lobby and lounge.

A variety of seating is available, allowing for a mix of social groups, intimate gatherings, business meetings or quiet contemplation with a laptop or book. The outdoor courtyard oasis with cafe tables spread throughout the center provides a great place for light bites or to enjoy locally inspired seasonal menus.

Around the perimeter of the courtyard, under canopies of cherry trees, two new water features add to the visual and auditory backdrop. Lounge furniture surrounds three different fire pits, providing a social environment to gather day or night.

Guest Rooms & the Fairmont Gold Experience

Inspiration for the guest room decor comes from the city of Washington itself, conveying politics and power in the design. Like the eclectic city, modern furnishings are mixed with classically detailed pieces, while the art collections reflect the city’s history and importance. Added features in the spacious guest rooms, starting at 400 sq. ft. (37 sq. m.), include multiple outlets for charging electronics along with bedside USB ports, a built in luggage bench and enhanced lighting.

For the more discerning traveler, Fairmont Gold is the perfect option. The 58 rooms and suites enjoy special amenities such as private check-in and concierge service in the Fairmont Gold Lounge. Daily breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres are also served, giving guests a sanctuary to relax beyond their guest room.
