The 301-room Hamilton Crowne Plaza, Washington, D.C., has completed a renovation of its guest rooms, suites, lobby and meeting facilities. The design was chosen with founding father Alexander Hamilton in mind. The original ceiling with 14-karat gold features still decorates the lobby, and original artwork and maps of local points of interest are hung throughout the property.

Guest rooms and suites in the 1920s property now sport classic furnishings with contemporary elements in espresso, taupe and red touches. Silhouettes of Alexander Hamilton feature his quotes. The rooms also now have multiple data ports, high-speed Internet access, seven-layer bedding and luxury bath amenities.

The 5,000 square feet of meeting space maintains a classic feel in its new furnishings and finishes. Planners also can book space at the adjacent Sphinx Club (formerly the Almas conference facility); combined with the hotel, the two venues offer 19,000 square feet of meeting space in 14 rooms.

At the intersection of 14th and K Street near the White House, the hotel features the 14K restaurant and lounge, serving regional American contemporary cuisine.
