A 15-room boutique hotel, the Avery, is planned for the 2600 block of P Street NW — between the Jerusalem Baptist Church, Chichie’s Grooming Spa for Dogs on one side and a new restaurant, After Peacock Room, and the Georgetown office of Washington Fine Properties on the corner, which brokered the property sale.
Located at 2616 and 2620 P St. NW, the new hotel is being created from two office townhouses, Samantha Schneck of the Avery Georgetown LLC told the Washington Business Journal. She said she expected the Avery could open by September after major interior reconstruction but no changes to the exterior.
Planners for the Avery expect its clients would be parents of Georgetown University students or guests of embassies.
“We plan to bring a lot of cool ideas to it to modernize the inn concept,” Schneck told the Journal. “We’re hoping the neighborhood embraces it.”
The proposed hotel is on the agenda for community comment during tonight’s monthly meeting of the Georgetown-Burleith Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2E at Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School on 35th Street, NW.
