The Darcy, Curio Collection by Hilton to open in Washington in 2017
Hilton announced the signing of The Darcy, Curio Collection by Hilton, a global portfolio of distinctive upper upscale hotels that caters to travelers in search of local discovery and authentic experiences. The Darcy, Curio Collection by Hilton, is expected to open in mid-2017.
The 226-room hotel is in the heart of Washington, D.C., just off Scott Circle. Only three blocks from Dupont Circle and Logan Circle, and six blocks from the White House, The Darcy’s central location will allow guests to easily visit the city’s many monuments, attractions and museums, including the Verizon Center and Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery.
The Darcy will feature a timeless yet edgy design, focusing on clean and classic architecture with accents of distressed metals and bright colors. Subtle cherry blossom patterns and abstract artwork of magnolias will connect the hotel to D.C. As with all Curio properties, The Darcy will reflect the local spirit of its community, embodying the sophistication and energy of Washington.
“The Darcy will offer unparalleled, personalized service in the most convenient of locations in Washington, D.C.,” said Tobias Arff, general manager of The Darcy. “Our location is ideal no matter your reason for visiting – whether visiting the White House and the National Mall, heading to meetings on K Street or looking for inspiration from one of the new hot spots on 14th Street Corridor.”
Chefs Robert Wiedmaier and Brian McBride created the hotel’s restaurant, Siren, which will feature locally sourced ingredients paired with the world’s freshest seafood. Lil’ B, an intimate coffee shop and eatery, will be led by celebrity Chef David Guas, who brings his New Orleans style to the cafe. Additional amenities will include a fitness center, business services, room service, valet parking, concierge services and programming with business and leisure travelers in mind.
The approximately 5,500 square feet of meeting space, which will allow for flexible room sizes and include contemporary, state-of-the-art audio visual options, will make The Darcy a well-situated choice for meetings and events in the center of Washington, D.C. The hotel is a ten-minute walk from Metro stations at Dupont Circle and McPherson Square and three miles from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
