WASHINGTON, D.C. – Washington, D.C.’s newest lifestyle hotel, The Morrow Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton, has officially opened its doors.
The hotel acts as an anchor tenant for the neighborhood, bringing artfully designed accommodations, dining by Michelin star Chef Nicholas Stefanelli, and nearly 12,000 square feet of meetings and events space to the heart of NoMa, (North of Massachusetts Avenue) one of the city’s fastest-growing creative districts.
“We set out, along with Trammel Crow Company, to bring a truly unique lifestyle destination to a vibrant and culturally important part of Washington D.C. in NoMa,” says Bill Webster, director, hotel asset management, MetLife Investment Management. “We believe in the growth potential of NoMa and The Morrow Hotel will quickly become part of the fabric of the neighborhood, enhancing its already rich culture through unmatched hospitality, service, and dining experiences.”
“When we started this project, we believed The Morrow could serve as the perfect central gathering place for the local NoMa and Union Market neighborhoods, while also setting new standards for nightlife and hospitality across the District of Columbia, and are so thrilled to see that vision come to life in this way,” says Campbell Smith, senior managing director, Trammell Crow Company.
The hotel’s arrival brings four new food and beverage venues by Michelin star Executive Chef Nicholas Stefanelli. Known for D.C. restaurants like Masseria, Philotimo, and Officina, Stefanelli is influenced by his local roots in conjunction with his Greek and Italian culinary heritage.
“As both a chef and a lover of travel, I’m truly inspired to embark on a new professional journey into the world of hotels, with a fantastic group of partners. I wanted to do a hotel project for quite some time, and after my initial meetings with The Morrow Hotel team, it became clear that our approach towards hospitality and creativity was aligned—and that we could have a really fun time creating something for both locals and visitors,” says Stefanelli. “With Le Clou, Upstairs at The Morrow, and soon Vesper, we hope to add our touch to an already buzzing and dynamic neighborhood.”
With 11,400 square feet of customizable space, and convenient positioning at the nexus of NoMa, Union Market, and H Street, The Morrow Hotel is a destination for meetings and events of any size. The hotel features a 4,900-square-foot outdoor veranda; a 2,400-square-foot ballroom with multiple configuration options; a private level lounge; and an open rooftop bar and terrace perfect for meetings, social affairs, ceremonies, and any other special occasions. All food and beverage offerings will be headed up by Stefanelli.
