The 231-room Embassy Row Hotel in Washington, D.C.'s Dupont Circle has finished up a $15 million renovation. The property's guest rooms and fitness center were redesigned, and the lobby now is anchored by the new Station Kitchen & Cocktails. The hotel includes a rooftop bar and heated saltwater chlorine pool overlooking the city. Through new partnerships with local organizations, the property now is donating portions of its revenue. For instance, the suite on the eighth floor is now the SOME (So Others Might Eat) suite, with 1 percent of its revenue going to that organization, and 25 cents from each special of the day sold at the restaurant also will go to SOME, as will 5 percent of revenue from every continuous break station purchased for meetings. The property features 8,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space.
