Luxury evolution for JW Marriott Washington


The JW Marriott Washington, DC, owned by Host Hotels & Resorts, the flagship of JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Marriott International’s luxury brand, has unveiled the multi-million dollar redesign of its 750 guest rooms, corridors, and executive lounge.

“Our new room design was inspired by guest feedback,” said Mr. Satinder Palta, General Manager, JW Marriott Washington, DC.  “Guests asked for a refined yet welcoming space for work and relaxation.”

In order to keep guests informed of JW Marriott Washington, DC’s luxury evolution, the hotel enlisted its front desk manager, Anthony, to be the renovation liaison. Anthony will be documenting the hotel’s progress in a series of 30 second digital vignettes such as “Guest Influence” and “Design Inspiration.”  The rest of the vignettes and a time-lapse video  can be viewed on YouTube and Facebook. 

Intended to enhance and elevate the guest experience, the new distinguished rooms were inspired by the bespoke nature of a beautifully tailored suit. Guests will experience a calming color palate of deep chocolate, charcoal and pearl grey with small accents of pink and chrome reminiscent of a stylish pocket square and men’s watch. Guests will also notice the textures of tweed, leather and herringbone stitching, as well as subtle patterns of Greek keys and paisley often seen on men’s neckties.

JW Marriott Washington, DC’s long-standing commitment to sustainability and energy conservation is also reflected in the renovation.  The hotel updated all of the guest rooms with energy efficient A/C units and LED light bulbs, reducing guest room energy consumption. 

The guestrooms feature upgraded Wi-Fi, swivel mounted 48” HDTVs and convenient USB ports for guests to plug-in their own mobile devices. The well-appointed bathrooms, with JW Marriott custom bath amenities from Aromatherapy Associates, feature illuminated mirrors, sliding doors, and spa-like showers with a discrete shave pedestal. Each of the king bedrooms feature a love seat that transforms into a single bed.
