The Melrose Georgetown Hotel

Washington, DC

The Melrose Georgetown Hotel, near the White House, hosts domestic and international business travelers, diplomats, and politicians. With 1930’s sophisticated Georgetown as inspiration, high contrast tones of parchment and gunmetal grays were used along with pops of patriotic color hues of indigo, rust, and currency green, reflecting the city’s American heritage. Black and white photography of 1930’s Georgetown adorns the public areas, with clean lines and symmetry reflecting order.

The lobby, restaurant, and lounge were designed to flow together, offering a variety of seating options within a common atmosphere. In the lobby, a federal-style fireplace serves as the focal point for the room, offering a sense of warmth and tradition. In keeping with the collegiate Georgetown atmosphere, the library has semi-private vignettes, plug and play nooks, and communal tables for impromptu meetings and social interaction. Flooring designs use travertine and marble in bold graphic patterns.
