Archer Hotel is expanding with the debut of ARCHER® Hotel Tysons. This luxury, new-build hotel in Fairfax County, Virginia, in the new Scotts Run South development marks the seventh property in Archer’s collection and its fourth on the East Coast. The 178-room boutique hotel is owned and operated by LodgeWorks Partners, L.P.
As with each hotel in the collection, Archer Tysons, designed by LK Architecture Inc., has stayed true to Archer’s core design philosophy. The seven-story building blends historic adaptive reuse architecture with the modern urban infill of Scotts Run—mixing tumbled multicolor brick with contemporary metal panels and floor-to-ceiling muntin framed windows to create an urban-chic destination.
The hotel includes the House Art Collection of unique and storied work, a fluid grouping of pieces in a range of mediums, all created by local and regional artists. Their works tell individual or Virginia-centric stories. Guests will take in an original series of hand-painted pieces that pay homage to the famed 1950s advertising slogan “Virginia is for lovers” commissioned through Art Whino and by artist Nicholas Zimbro. There are a number of guestroom selections including a field guide of Virginia butterflies by Kate Dolamore and a close-up of the red-spotted purple, a beautiful forest butterfly commonly seen in wooded suburban areas of the state. There will also be mini galleries adorning each guest corridor. A seventh-floor photo gallery of several of the most iconic musicians of all time who once called Virginia home features Ella Fitzgerald, Jim Morrison, June Carter Cash, Wayne Newton, Patsy Cline, and Roberta Flack.
