The Fairmont Washington, D.C. Hotel Completes Spectacular Rejuvenation of Its Renowned Meeting Space

Multi-Million Dollar Refurbishment Adds Style and Function to the Hotel's Meeting Facilities

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - The Fairmont Washington, D.C. hotel is thrilled to announce that the 415-room luxury hotel has completed the refurbishment of 24,000 square feet of its renowned function space. The announcement was made by Regional Vice President and General Manager Mark S. Andrew. The project encompassed this luxury Washington, D.C. hotel's ballroom-level meeting and pre-function space, the mezzanine level and the third-floor meeting facilities. The $2.6 million refurbishment was completed on January 20, 2012.

Maintaining Fairmont's environmental commitment, the 'Green Label'-approved carpeting features beautiful blossoms and vines, as do the low-VOC wall coverings and paints. The soft goods and finishes are inspired by the hotel's serene courtyard garden.

All of the hotel's Washington, D.C. meeting space now provides the latest technology, including internet docking stations. Third-floor executive boardrooms now offer wireless touch panels, overhead microphones and rack-mounted equipment to support audio amplifiers, Blu-Ray players and audio signal processors.

"By updating our expansive function space with modern style and technology, we have enhanced the guest experience in our unique urban oasis within the nation's capital," states Mr. Andrew.

The ballroom's pre-function space boasts a feature wall that reflects light and texture while depicting the cherry blossoms found throughout the capital. And this luxury Washington, D.C. hotel's 5,460-square-foot ballroom is an exquisite setting for weddings and galas hosting up to 700 guests.

The Fairmont Washington, D.C. hotel is convenient to the finest museums, theaters (including the Kennedy Center), shopping and dining. Close to two metro stations, it is five miles from Reagan National Airport and 33 miles from Dulles International Airport.
