The Graham Georgetown, in Washington, D.C. is slated to join Tapestry Collection by Hilton in early 2018.
The seven-story Federalist building houses 57 guestrooms, including 32 one-bedroom spacious suites. As part of Tapestry Collection by Hilton, a growing portfolio of original upscale hotels, The Graham will offer guests an independent hotel stay backed by Hilton name and Hilton Honors program.
Originally opened in 1962 as the Monticello, the hotel is located in prestigious Georgetown neighborhood. The property takes its name from renowned inventor Alexander Graham Bell, who invented the telephone, minutes away from the hotel at the famous Volta Laboratory and Workshop.
Rooftop lounge: Overlooking the neighborhood below, the lauded see-and-be-seen rooftop bar and lounge, The Observatory, is one of Washington's most treasured outdoor gathering spots for locals and visitors alike with views spanning from the Potomac River to the Washington Monument and the Kennedy Center.
Dining: Tipping its hat to the property's namesake, The Alex is the hotel's full-service restaurant. Helmed by executive chef José Molina, it features a seasonally dynamic menu that regularly changes to reflect the freshest produce sourced from nearby farmers and purveyors. The Graham's hip hangout, The Alex Craft Cocktail Cellar & Speakeasy, has become a frequented stop as it transforms into a cabaret, offering live musical performances weekly.
"Lynn and I are excited that our Graham Hotel will be joining the Hilton family as a part of its new Tapestry Collection," said Dwight Curry, co-owner, The Graham Hotel. "Our family has enjoyed our strong business relationship with Hilton for two decades, opening the first newly constructed Hilton Garden Inn in 1998. We are thrilled to again be a part of the launch of another great new Hilton brand, and couldn't ask for a better fit for our historic Georgetown hotel."
The Graham will remain open as usual during its transition process. Renovations will include updated furnishings to select areas of the hotel's public spaces, new finishes to the lobby and an enhanced check-in and concierge experience.
