Westin Hotels & Resorts has introduced its newest gem in the heart of the nation’s capital, the Westin Washington, DC Downtown. After an impressive investment of nearly $80 million by the Sunstone Hotel Investors ownership group, this 807-room haven is set to redefine the hotel experience. Guests can now expect a harmonious blend of modern sophistication and wellness-focused amenities to inspire, rejuvenate, and maintain their well-being while on the go.
From the moment visitors step through the doors of the Westin Washington, DC Downtown, they are presented with an array of opportunities to recharge and rejuvenate. Jennifer Connell, Global Brand Leader of Westin Hotels & Resorts and Vice President of Distinctive Premium Brands at Marriott International, expressed the vision behind the hotel, saying, “The hotel’s modern residential design brings the natural world indoors, to create an all-encompassing health and wellness experience that redefines the traditional hotel stay. What better way to further energize business and leisure guests as they travel through the city, than a visit to the largest hotel fitness studio in Washington, DC.”
Designed by renowned architecture and design firms Parts and Labor Design and Leo A Daly, the Westin Washington, DC Downtown seamlessly marries the tranquility of nature with the vibrancy of the city. The hotel’s architectural and design elements draw inspiration from Potomac stone, a material native to the Washington, DC area. The creative use of stone in both its raw and finished forms creates a captivating contrast. Once inside, guests are welcomed into a space inspired by biophilic design, bringing nature indoors through the incorporation of natural light, greenery, and water features. The warm and inviting environment offers a space to unwind, adorned with artwork that embodies the essence of Washington, DC’s surrounding waterways, with elements like ripples, flow, reflection, texture, and movement.
The Westin Washington, DC Downtown places community at its core, featuring the Westin WELL, a unique wellness initiative. Recognizing that travelers often arrive at their destinations dehydrated, the Westin WELL nourishing dispensary provides guests with a selection of sparkling and alkaline water options to help them rehydrate and rejuvenate from the moment they arrive.
Kori Johnson, General Manager of Westin Washington, DC Downtown, emphasizes the hotel’s role as an urban oasis for all. “Westin Washington, DC Downtown is an urban oasis with something to offer everyone,” Johnson noted. “We have created a space where a focus on well-being comes together in all aspects of the hotel. From our guest rooms and WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio to our lively bar and compelling cuisine, we look forward to bringing Westin’s wellness spirit to life through our brand’s six pillars of well-being.”
With the Westin Washington, DC Downtown, visitors to the nation’s capital can now enjoy a transformative hotel experience that embraces wellness, nature, and community, making it a destination for both business and leisure travelers seeking rejuvenation and inspiration while on the road.
