Georgetown Suites: No More Rooms at the Inn
By December 31, 2020 0 688•
The Georgetown Suites hotel — which until recently was promoting inaugural packages and special reservation discounts — permanently closed its doors on Nov. 30.
Visitors to the website were greeted with this gnomic and unrevealing message: “It has been our great honor and pleasure to serve you and have you as a guest over the years. On behalf of the entire staff, I want to thank you for choosing Georgetown Suites for your accommodations while in Washington, DC, and express our appreciation for your business and your trust in allowing us to serve you.”
With a Courtyard Building at 1111 30th St. NW and a Harbour Building at 1000 29th St. NW, the hotel boasted an ultra-convenient Georgetown location and 224 “apartment-style” suites with full kitchens and other homey amenities.
That home-centered mission will not change, nor will the building exteriors. According to the Washington Business Journal, Varsity Investment Group, which officially acquired the hotel in late December, is in the process of converting the rooms into fully modern apartments. A common area will feature a gym, a game room and lounges.
With a concentration in student housing, Varsity, based in Bethesda, Maryland, is a well-known player in apartment conversions, as is the contractor, Moseley Construction of Sterling, Virginia. The project is due for delivery in March.
