Washington Marriott Wardman Park Unveils Redesigned Guestrooms

Modern Design Is a Nod to Hotel's Distinguished History

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - May 14, 2015) -  The Washington Marriott Wardman Park recently announced the completion of its renovation of 1,048 guestrooms, 104 suites, concierge lounge and public spaces. Originally built as condominiums in the 1920s, the design of the new NW Washington, DC hotel suite's draws from the hotel's origins and blends both traditional and modern elements. The multiple million dollar renovation is an investment by the hotel's owners, The JBG Companies of Chevy Chase, Md. 

"We are excited to share our dynamic new look and feel with our guests," said Bill Walsh, General Manager of Washington Marriott Wardman Park. "Our guests have asked for a sophisticated yet comforting ambiance for both relaxation and work; we have delivered that and more. Our redesigned guestrooms combined with our thoughtful service, convenient location, premium conference space and our mobile guest technology positions the Washington Marriott Wardman Park as world class destination for meetings, business and leisure travel." 

Dallas-based architecture design firm, Leo A. Daly, took inspiration from the roaring 1920s. The refreshed look evokes the Art Deco period with rich colors, carpets with bold geometric shapes and ornamental fixtures. Guestroom furniture is wrapped in faux linen, while a palette of warm gray is interwoven with pops of azure blue on the headboard or pillows. White and ivory detailing in the walls and window treatments pairs with the tailored fabrics and the clean-lined furnishings. Each room features easily movable furniture -- guests can expect either a sofa, which can split apart into two separate seating groups, lounge chairs or ottomans.

"Our design sought to bring back to life the glamour of a time and excitement when an invitation to Wardman Park meant a person had reached the pinnacle of society life," Kathy Chavez, Project Manager at Leo A. Daly said. "We drew from today's fashion with a color palette that is classic rather than trendy to create a contemporary modern feel for guests."

Washington Marriott Wardman Park also features new Marriott Hotels brand technology, designed for guests who embrace the mobile lifestyle for work as well as leisure. These added services include:

  • Red Coat Direct, a first-of-its-kind app that lets meeting organizers adjust and edit their meeting requests and preferences with a touch of a button and without ever leaving the meeting room.
  • Mobile Check-In & Check-Out, a mobile capability that provides an enhanced arrival experience with check-in up to two hours before arrival and automatic notifications when a room is ready.
  • Free Wi-Fi is available to all Marriott Rewards® members, who enjoy free in-room Wi-Fi when they book directly on Marriott.com, Marriott's mobile app, or by calling 1-800 MARRIOTT.
