W Washington D.C.
Built in 1917 across the street from the White House, Hotel Washington was the closest neighbor to the First Family. Hosting everyone from presidents to politicians, celebrities to CEOs, socialites to superstars, this was where Elvis met with President Nixon serendipitously in the 1970s and asked to be a federal agent. Where Harrison Ford bought rounds of drinks for everyone. Where Presidents Clinton and Reagan attended balls. Where the President's Thanksgiving turkey trotted on the rooftop before receiving its pardon. Where calls to the White House were connected and "The Godfather Part II" was shot on the storied rooftop.
Because glamour is forever, Hotel Washington's art, music, design, fashion and culture is redefined and revisualized by W Washington D.C., in a tribute to its storied Beaux Arts past. From the sophistication of Sinatra to the charm of Chevalier, nothing will change, and everything will evolve. To be continued…
