WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/14 -- Much like a restaurant should reflect its given region in the menu, a hotel should embrace its context in everything from amenities to aesthetics. This can be a tall order for Capitol Riverfront hotels in D.C., where the neighborhood is as diverse as it is sophisticated. But following a comprehensive renovation of all 192 guestrooms and 12 suites this year, the Courtyard Washington Capitol Hill/Navy Yard has risen to the challenge and become one of the most relevant and attractive hotels in this eclectic neighborhood.
Whether a room gazes over Nationals Park or one of the city's many other landmarks, each room has been reinvented for guest comfort and convenience. Unique among accommodations in Capitol Hill, the property now welcomes visitors to rooms outfitted with new carpet, wall coverings and window sheers, as well as updated sofa sleepers, chairs and desk chairs.
But the changes go beyond furnishings and carpets. Guests will discover smaller, thoughtful touches that create a more welcoming stay. Each room now features an accent wall for a burst of visual appeal, a feature that's complemented by the new artwork and lamps. New bath towels and makeup mirrors in the bathrooms help travelers feel at home. And when it's time to sleep, guests now sink into luxury style linens with a new cumulus top sheet. Even the corridors enjoyed an update. Like the guest rooms they now boast new wall coverings, new carpeting, new artwork and new tables by each elevator landing.
As one of the most stylish Washington, D.C. hotels near the Metro, the property lives up to its globally-inspired neighborhood. The guestroom renovation followed a transformative remodel of the lobby and meeting space last year. As guests arrive, they are greeted by the lobby's bold color scheme, flexible seating (ranging from a communal table to an intimate lounge area) and tech-friendly features like abundant electrical outlets for charging devices and a 52-inch GoBoard® where the latest news, weather updates and travel information are available with a swipe of the LCD touch screen.
The result is a property that stands out in every way, not just among hotels near Nationals Park, Home of the Washington Nationals but among all hotels in the D.C. area. From its impeccable appointments, to its prime location near the National Mall, to its value-added amenities like complimentary Internet access, this hotel demonstrates good taste in every way.
