A $27 million renovation under way at the Fairmont Washington, DC, Georgetown is scheduled to complete its first phase next month, strengthening the property's group offerings.

"This exciting project will be complete by April 15, 2016, enhancing both the guest experience and the hotel's position as the largest luxury group hotel in the nation's capital," said Shane Krige, general manager of the property.

The project encompasses each of the hotel's 415 guest rooms, which are being updated with new interiors, art and furnishings; its specialty suites, the number of which will increase from five to seven; and its meeting space, which will be enhanced with a new 2,900-square-foot junior ballroom being carved out of space formerly occupied by the hotel's executive forum amphitheater.

A second phase of renovations is expected to commence in July and will encompass the hotel's lobby, courtyard, and onsite restaurant, Juniper.
