A Roof with a View: Historic Georgetown Hotel Joins Tapestry Collection by Hilton
Collection brand signs vibrant Washington, D.C. hotel; The Graham Georgetown to join its unique portfolio
WASHINGTON, D.C. and MCLEAN, Va. - Tapestry Collection by Hilton continues to expand with the signing of the distinguished hotel, The Graham Georgetown, in Washington, D.C., slated to join the collection in early 2018.
With stunning rooftop views across the Georgetown neighborhood and its picturesque waterfront, the seven-story Federalist building is home to 57 guest rooms, including 32 one-bedroom suites with generous living space. As part of Tapestry Collection by Hilton, a growing portfolio of original upscale hotels, The Graham will continue to celebrate its authentic spirit while offering guests an independent hotel stay backed by the value and reassurance of the Hilton name and its award-winning Hilton Honors program.
"In our pursuit to offer guests the best of both worlds - through hotels that are as unique as they are reliable - The Graham truly embodies the travel experience we are committed to delivering," said Mark Nogal, global head, Tapestry Collection by Hilton. "With its rich background, distinct personality and historic location, we look forward to welcoming this charming, local property to our collection in the back yard of Hilton's headquarters next year."
Originally opened in 1962 as the Monticello, the hotel's discreet brick façade with Colonial-inspired sash-over-sash windows fits beautifully into the traditional architecture found throughout the prestigious Georgetown neighborhood. The property takes its name from renowned inventor Alexander Graham Bell, who pioneered countless inventions, including the telephone, just minutes away from the hotel at the famous Volta Laboratory and Workshop. Flanked between the Georgetown Waterfront and the bustling M Street thoroughfare - one of the city's most popular destinations for dining, shopping and entertainment - The Graham Georgetown is a beloved anchor within the local community.
Additional hotel features include:
Rooftop Lounge - Overlooking the vibrant neighborhood below, the lauded see-and-be-seen rooftop bar and lounge, The Observatory, is one of Washington's most treasured outdoor gathering spots for savvy locals and in-the-know visitors alike with breathtaking views spanning from the Potomac River to the Washington Monument and the Kennedy Center.
Guest Room Highlights - To take in the historic locale, request the Frank Sinatra Suite, named after the rumored regular, featuring a 200-square-foot outdoor deck overlooking the surrounding area. From the roof down to its chic lobby six floors below, the hotel carries a look that is distinctly contemporary with a fresh color palate of earthy grays, cool blues and crisp whites, reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour.
Dining - Tipping its hat to the property's namesake, The Alex is the hotel's full-service restaurant. Helmed by executive chef José Molina, it features a seasonally dynamic menu that regularly changes to reflect the freshest produce sourced from nearby farmers and purveyors. A destination in and of itself, The Graham's hip hangout, The Alex Craft Cocktail Cellar & Speakeasy, has become a frequented stop on the jazz circuit as it transforms into a cabaret, offering live musical performances weekly.
"Lynn and I are excited that our Graham Hotel will be joining the Hilton family as a part of its new Tapestry Collection," said Dwight Curry, co-owner, The Graham Hotel. "Our family has enjoyed our strong business relationship with Hilton for two decades, opening the first newly constructed Hilton Garden Inn in 1998. We are thrilled to again be a part of the launch of another great new Hilton brand, and couldn't ask for a better fit for our historic Georgetown hotel."
The Graham will remain open as usual during its transition process, offering guests the same level of excellence in quality and experience. Renovations will include updated furnishings to select areas of the hotel's public spaces, new finishes to the lobby and an enhanced check-in and concierge experience.
