    Kimpton’s iconic Washington D.C. hotel, The George, has announced the completion of a multi-million pound renovation and redesign. The renovation of The George covers all 139 guest rooms and suites, hallway corridors and lifts, which will now flow seamlessly with the artful, contemporary design of the hotel’s recently refreshed living room, gallery, and meeting spaces.“We’re thrilled with the results of the renovation and so are our guests. The new rooms are modern, upscale, and will keep us on the map as the premier hotel for business and leisure on Capitol Hill,” said Ben Timashenka, Director of Operations for Kimpton’s Washington, D.C. hotels.

    CBT, an interior, architecture and urban-design firm specialising in luxury hospitality design, was hired to re-imagine The George’s design and capture the presidential spirit of the hotel. Starting with the guest rooms, the redesign features a sophisticated, crisp colour palette with rich accents of warm blues, browns, and beige, as well as contemporary references to American history, reflected in the parchment and ink graphic wallpaper depicting George Washington’s handwritten inaugural address.

    The hotel’s premier guest room, The Presidential Suite, received stylish updates including new furniture and an accent rug illustrating Washington’s inaugural address in the separate sitting area, custom impressionist-style portraits of George and Martha Washington, and a luxurious new free-standing soaking tub and marble shower.
