DC’s Great Escape: Kimpton Glover Park Hotel


Big news in D.C.: we’ve made it a perfect 10. That’s right — our 10th hotel just opened in the nation’s capitol. And it just so happens to be in a charming residential neighborhood anyone would be happy to call home, even for just one night. We’re thrilled to introduce Kimpton Glover Park Hotel, now open on the border of beautiful Glover Archibold Park.

The 154-room retreat, with a new restaurant by James Beard award-winning chef Michael Schlow, is just north of Georgetown and sits on a picturesque tree-lined street. Go ahead — take a stroll, explore the nearby parks, local shops and restaurants, and totally unwind. But don’t mistake this for a sleepy spot: Kimpton Glover Park Hotel has an unmistakable urban vibe, giving easy access to all of the buzziest spots in D.C., including Georgetown shopping, the Smithsonian National Zoo, plus American, GW and Georgetown Universities. It’s even close to the Vice President’s home.

The Style
World-renowned artist Michele Oka Doner took inspiration from the neighborhood’s namesake, Charles Carroll Glover, a famed banker and philanthropist who helped reshape D.C. as a “city of parks.” Imagine the most alluring parts of the outdoors brought in with a stylish urban edge.

This means white brick walls, wood and steel finishes, and abstract patterns that all add up to a creative, youthful vibe. The green and white tones will soothe you, and so will the nature-inspired materials, lush fabrics and rich wood finishes. There’s no missing the mural on the outside depicting Rock Creek Park; at eight stories high it’s an impressive artistic map of the park’s winding, stream-spangled paths.

Speaking of style: guestrooms give you that never-want-to-leave feeling with elegant woodsy textures and original collage artwork by Doner herself, depicting local foliage. Grab a City View Room for unbeatable views of the National Mall and Potomac River (speaking of … have you heard about the District’s iconic Fourth of July fireworks?).

The Flavor
The kitchen at Casolare will even oversee room service and events in the Walnut Ballroom or open-air Tunlaw Terrace for up to 200 guests. That means, at your beck and call, appetizing selections like rigatoni tossed with white beans, diced soppressata, black olives, tomatoes and chilis. Enough said.

The Amenities
Any good hotel and foodie destination has little extra something, and Glover Park Hotel delivers. It has a lot of fun extras to offer guests, including a 2,000-square-foot fitness center from Graham King’s and group fitness classes led by Washington’s top-rated private trainers. Or, borrow one of the hotel’s running strollers and maps to explore the neighborhood on foot.

You can also indulge in our own custom tea blend by Capital Teas morning, noon or night in the living room. Or, kick back and doodle away in the original coloring book (for kids or adults!) that was custom-created for the hotel and highlights the surrounding Glover Park neighborhood and local spots like the Washington National Cathedral and Guy Mason Park.

When you want to check out the local scene, we make it easy: There’s a complimentary shuttle to Woodley Park Metro and National Zoo.

We can’t wait for you to experience our newest serene uptown retreat in D.C.
