The Kimpton Glover Park Hotel Opens In Washington, DC
This month’s destination is Washington, D.C. It is always exciting visiting the nation’s capital and viewing the many changes or new properties developing such as the luxury retail destination CityCenterDC and foodie haven, Union Market. My favorite part of my traveling, besides the food and shopping? The Hotel. And The Donovan Hotel, part of the Kimpton Hotel Group is always my go to. Located in the heart of the District, it features a 24-hour fitness center, a private rooftop pool, and 24-hour in-room dining from Zentan Restaurant.
And now, I have a new D.C destination: Kimpton group’s brand spanking new hotel called Kimpton Glover Park Hotel. The perfect getaway and or mini retreat if wanting to stay at arms-length distance from the noise and rush of the city. It is nestled above a tree-lined charming neighborhood, north of Georgetown and the shopping on M Street and Wisconsin Avenue, and steps away from the National Cathedral and Rock Creek Park. The hotel highlights 154 guest rooms with 25 furnished with in-room telescopes featuring unobstructed views of the National Mall and Potomac River. This marks the second boutique hotel design collaboration between Foxhall Partners and Iron Point Partners following the success of The Carlyle Dupont Circle last year.
The hotel’s design inspiration including a mural on the property’s eight-story facade stems from the neighborhood’s moniker, Charles Carroll Glover, who is recognized for the creation of Rock Creek Park, the National Zoo, and Embassy Row. The rooms feature a calming green and white botanical color scheme, sprinkled with wood finishes and sophisticated accents. The Kimpton Glover Park hotel includes a 2,800 square foot meeting space and a stylish Tunlaw Terrace suited for small events. Amenities feature complimentary shuttle service to Woodley Park Metro Station and the Smithsonian National Zoo and custom PUBLIC bike rentals. For fitness, 24-hour access to the Urban Athletic Club is provided for guests, as well as the Kimpton brand Forgot It? We’ve Got It! menu of travel essentials.
Next month, acclaimed chef and restaurateur Chef Michael Schlow of The Riggsby and Alta Strada will open Casolare-a coastal Italian restaurant with fare from the regions of Amalfi, Sardinia and Livorno featuring antipasti, wood stone-fired pizzas and seafood preparations.
