‘Disruptive’ hotel brand Yotel to debut in Washington this fall


After openings in New York, Boston and San Francisco, ‘disruptive’ hotel brand Yotel is to make its debut in Washington this fall.

As the brand’s first acquisition and transition, the former Liaison Washington Capitol Hill hotel will undergo a multi-million dollar transformation and rebrand before launching as Yotel Washington later this year.

The project will include a full modernization of hotel rooms into signature Yotel cabins, and the lobby into the brand’s staple Mission Control area outfitted with airline-style check-in kiosks.

The hotel’s meetings & events space, and conference areas and private rooms will also undergo design and technology enhancements.

The Art and Soul restaurant will see an evolution of both the restaurant space and from scratch signature dishes under the direction of executive chef Douglas Alexander.

The hotel’s rooftop terrace will also undergo a complete renovation, accommodating for greater F&B space atop one of the largest rooftops and pool decks in the area.

YOTEL Washington D.C. will begin construction of the brand’s new cabins.

“Our rapid global expansion is very exciting and further asserts our prominence in the U.S. and on the world stage. We have a proven track record operating globally with hotels in many of the key feeder markets to Washington – Boston, New York, San Francisco and Europe, “said Hubert Viriot, CEO of YOTEL. “Furthermore, the hotel offering in Washington is fairly traditional and YOTEL is ready to introduce our cleverly designed cabins ideal for short and long stays.”

YOTEL Washington D.C. marks the YOTEL brand’s 10th hotel under development or open in the US with hotels in New York, Boston, San Francisco, Miami, Atlanta and Long Island City and four YOTELPAD properties in Miami, Atlanta, Park City and Mammoth.
