The Westin Washington, D.C. City Center has completed a $17 million renovation encompassing its guest rooms, lobby, and meeting space, it announced yesterday.

Located in downtown Washington, D.C., near the White House and the K Street corridor, the Westin's 406 guest rooms now feature newly remodeled bathrooms, as well as new soft goods, televisions, refrigerators, and safes.

Its lobby, meanwhile, includes a new full-service restaurant, called Fringetree, specializing in health-conscious dishes, as well as a new vertical garden designed to improve indoor air quality and bring the outdoors in.

Finally, its 17,500 square feet of meeting space has been updated with new technology, and is now complemented by enhanced catering and event planning services.

The renovation also encompassed an expanded 24-hour fitness center.

"The Westin brand promotes well-being and the enhancements we've made to this D.C. property are designed to inspire successful travel, work, meeting and vacation experiences," General Manager Patty Connolly said in a statement. "This project coincides with the exciting revitalization of the 14th Street corridor in Washington, D.C. Our hotel, much like this city, has a storied past and we are looking forward to embracing an exciting new future. The striking redesign blended with our prime location is sure to make the Westin Washington, D.C. City Center the most desirable hotel in the nation's capital."
