The Kimpton Glover Park Hotel, the latest boutique hotel in Northwest Washington, opened June 15. The “design-driven” uptown retreat (formerly the Savoy Suites) boasts a number of special offerings, including telescopes in its 25 “signature city view guest rooms,” according to a press release. The hotel, at 2505 Wisconsin Ave. NW, across the street from the Russian Embassy, is the 10th Kimpton in D.C. and the product of a collaboration between Foxhall Partners and Iron Point Partners, which opened the Carlyle Dupont Circle last year.
The design, inspired by neighborhood namesake Charles Carroll Glover, shaper of some of the city’s most iconic parks, was conceptualized by artist Michele Oka Doner, who created an atmosphere of bringing nature inside. The façade features an eight-story map of Rock Creek Park, for which Glover was an active advocate.
The 154-room hotel has 21 kitchenette rooms, 2,800 square feet of meeting space, the 1,860-square-foot Walnut Room ballroom, the 1,000-square-foot Tunlaw Terrace, a 2,000-square-foot modern boutique-style fitness room and an Italian restaurant from chef Michael Schlow, Casolare. Among the other amenities are “Live at 5,” the hotel’s Wednesday wine hour, when the hotel’s “living room” is transformed into an intimate jazz club.
