The original 10-story building was built in 1950 as the Kiplinger Editor's Building. The renovation transformed the once deadline-driven workplace into a modern, 116-room Hampton Inn located in the heart of Washington, DC's Golden Triangle. The character of the iconic building was preserved by maintaining and enhancing the limestone facade; a cantilevered canopy and slight changes to the entrance of the building marked additions to the exterior.
The building's interior now features new guest rooms and new elevators, an indoor salt-water pool, conference rooms, a business center, fitness area, breakfast area and associated food prep kitchen. The mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems were completely replaced and a natural gas generator was installed. The focal point of the hotel's public space is the great room in the lobby, characterized by custom lighting, high ceilings and vibrant decor.
Hampton Inn Washington, DC/White House is LEED® NC Gold certified.
