Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced that the Loews Madison Hotel will join Hilton Hotels & Resorts' portfolio as The Madison Washington DC, a Hilton Hotel. The 356-room hotel, located in the heart of downtown Washington, D.C., has long offered sophisticated accommodations to some of the capital's most esteemed visitors. In partnership with affiliates of Walton Street Capital and Waterton, The Madison Washington DC is poised to set a new standard for hospitality and elevate Hilton's presence in this globally sought-after destination.
Hilton planted its hospitality roots in Washington, D.C. more than 60 years ago when its founder, Conrad Hilton, purchased the hotel now known as Capital Hilton in 1954. In addition to Capital Hilton, The Madison Washington DC joins Washington Hilton, marking the brand's third hotel in the city.
"We are delighted this distinguished hotel will join the Hilton family, strengthening our presence in the nation's capital," said Shawn McAteer, vice president, global brand management, Hilton Hotels & Resorts. "We look forward to welcoming discerning travelers seeking an exceptional experience at the intersection of the city's quintessential offerings."
A short walk to the White House, Walter E. Washington Convention Center and many key attractions, museums and landmarks, the hotel combines a reverence for history with modern luxuries and amenities, offering 356 guest rooms, including 27 suites. The Madison Washington DC offers more than 12,000 square feet of meeting space, including eight stylish meeting rooms equipped with the latest technology and high-speed internet access. Other amenities include a 24-hour business center, lobby bar, restaurant and lounge and fitness center, which includes floor-to-ceiling windows with great views of downtown D.C. as well as his-and-her steam rooms.
Renowned since its opening, with President John F. Kennedy attending the hotel's commencement ceremony, The Madison Washington DC has long set the stage for countless distinguished guests. From Frank Sinatra to the Dalai Lama and nearly every president since Kennedy, the hotel, named after James and Dolley Madison, combines class and comfort, providing exceptional service and unique guest experiences, every day, every time. Built in 1963 by philanthropist, art collector, history buff and developer Marshall B. Coyne, the hotel redefined luxury in Washington as Coyne filled the hotel with his personal collection of antiques to set the tone and ambiance for visiting travelers.
The Madison Washington DC is a short drive from the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and easily accessible by D.C.'s Metro.
