The Ven at Embassy Row, Washington, D.C., a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, plans to open in January 2021. Located in an area known for its art, culture, cuisine, and embassies, the Ven will be reflective of the vibrant neighborhood it calls home. Offering style and international flair in a sophisticated yet comfortable environment, the hotel will implement various elements and touchpoints reflective of the Danish and Norwegian concept of hygge, which is design meant to encourage guests’ comfort, exploration, and personal wellbeing.
The 231-room hotel will feature an expansive lobby that will showcase floor-to-ceiling windows looking onto Massachusetts Avenue. The project will also have a Scandinavian-inspired design created with simplicity and minimalism in mind. Vibrant social spaces will display pops of pink and blue, blonde wood tones throughout the property, arched passageways, custom-made furnishings, and a gallery level featuring rotating art from local, national, and international artists. Four times per day guests can transport themselves to the geographic phenomenon of the Northern Lights, with a digital light installation and guided meditation.
In spring 2021, the Ven will debut its rooftop pool and bar. Also on tap is Fred & Stilla, a full-service restaurant in a living room setting that will offer local and fresh programming.
