Lowe Enterprises selected OPX to provide architecture and interior design services for the renovation of the 1,119-room Washington Hilton Hotel. Situated on five acres on Connecticut Avenue, the hotel features 110,000 SF of meeting space, including a signature 36,000 SF ballroom.
OPX renovated all guest rooms, reconfigured the meeting space to accommodate multiple groups and events simultaneously, and refreshed the gym and pool areas. The existing 1,200 SF fitness center was reconfigured to include a spa. Food and beverage operations were also enhanced, with the addition of a coffee bar and other upgrades.
Additional flexible exhibition space was created, allowing use as one space or as many as 16 separate areas.
The roof of this new exhibition hall was developed as an outdoor plaza and garden, providing green roof and functional areas for guest use.
