Key Bridge Marriott Puts Guests Front and Center for Glamorous FAD Georgetown Event

Guests Will Be Close Enough to Georgetown's Fashion, Art and Design Event to Feel the Flash of the Cameras

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - Sep 27, 2013) - Location, as they say, is everything, and Key Bridge Marriott has long enjoyed its enviable perch across Key Bridge from Georgetown. And with the advent of FAD Georgetown on October 10 to 12, 2013, this hotel will find itself in an unbeatable position for guests to explore all the highlights of the momentous event.

Georgetown's first-ever Fashion, Art and Design (FAD) event has taken the concept of Fashion's Night Out to an entirely new level. Featuring three days and nights of progressive style parties, interactive public art projects, gallery walks, DIY events and red carpets, FAD promises to deliver a more comprehensive and locally relevant picture of design than ever before.

There's no better place to get in on the action than this hotel close to Georgetown. If guests want to explore a trunk show by an emerging designer or attend a design showroom activity, all they need to do is zip across the bridge. If they want to explore the stores, restaurants, showrooms and galleries that have come together to put on this event, this hotel places them just steps away from it all.

After the red carpets have been rolled up, visitors can retire to the luxurious comfort of their guestrooms where flat-panel LCD HD televisions are waiting with cable channels, where 300-threadcount linens and fluffy pillows entice them to bed and where views encompass the breathtaking beauty of Washington, DC or Georgetown.

Of course, with such an ideal location, the Arlington, VA hotel makes it easy for guests to stay beyond the FAD event. Sights like the White House and Smithsonian Institution museums are an easy Metro ride away, as is Arlington National Cemetery. And since the hotel is also near Georgetown University, visitors can easily drop in on that venerable institution, too. Location, after all, is everything.

About Key Bridge Marriott
Picturesquely situated across Key Bridge from Georgetown, the Key Bridge Marriott boasts the best of both worlds. For business travelers, it is just minutes from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and close to the corporations and government agencies located in Northern Virginia. Plus it has 17,000 sq. ft. of meeting space -- including the top-floor Capital View Ballroom -- that is equipped with e-tools like web pages and e-rooming lists. For vacationers, the hotel is just steps away from The Shops at Georgetown Park, the architectural splendor of Georgetown proper and the inspiring, 35-mile Mount Vernon Trail. These two disparate travel groups find common ground, however, in the hotel's state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor/outdoor pool and two restaurants, Revival and Connexion. Both restaurants specialize in satisfying American fare. The 582 guestrooms feature luxuries appropriate for a well-appointed hotel, like Plug-In technology panels, flat-screen HD televisions and down comforters, all of which ensure that every guest gets a good night's rest, regardless of what activities the next day brings.
