Hotel Near Georgetown, D.C. Is Just Steps Away From the City's Most Glamorous Night

At the Key Bridge Marriott, Visitors Delve Into Design During the 2nd-Annual FAD Event

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - Oct 10, 2014) - Fashion Week occurs in cities all over the globe, but even the most exciting of these can't quite compare with Georgetown's homegrown style soiree. For while Georgetown chimes in with D.C.'s own illustrious Fashion Week, it's the FAD (Fashion Art Design) event that really thrills design insiders. Scheduled for October 25, this year's FAD promises to be more action-packed than ever, and the Key Bridge Marriott is within walking distance of the best of it.

As guests of this hotel in Arlington, VA already know, Georgetown's picturesque streets and intriguing shops routinely draw them across the Potomac. Its eclectic mix of galleries, boutiques and cultural events is also what gave rise to FAD, a celebration of fashion in all its forms. For one full day and night, FAD will inspire and entertain guests with events and promotions that highlight local fashion, art and design merchants.

FAD expanded the concept of fashion to include other style-driven industries like art and design. Last year, FAD offered attendees three days and nights of interactive exhibits like progressive style parties, interactive public-art projects, gallery walks and red carpets. This year, FAD's multimedia approach to fashion has been distilled into one action-packed day and better represents the spirit and offerings of the historic city than ever before.

For visitors who want to be within earshot of the paparazzi's clicking cameras, this hotel near Georgetown, D.C. offers all of the access with none of the hassle. Guests enjoy a stylish welcome in the spacious lobby with its private seating areas and complimentary Wi-Fi, while two restaurants serve a cosmopolitan vibe alongside their American menus.

Travelers arriving for FAD may well choose to extend their trip and take in some of the surrounding sights. After all, the hotel's close proximity to Georgetown is only the first of its geographical advantages. D.C.'s Metro system is just three blocks away, putting destinations like the Iwo Jima Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery and all of The District's iconic landmarks easily within reach. Traveling well, after all, is something that's always in style.
