Taking part in the most important election the Beltway has seen in some time, the JW Marriott on Pennsylvania Avenue will welcome one lucky group—with a generous budget—during the presidential inauguration, with renovated function space and a once-in-a-lifetime chance to participate in Washington, DC's festivities.
Following a $2 million renovation of its presidential and vice presidential suites, the JW has created a package for a three-night celebration. Priced at $1 million, the festivities are held on the hotel's 7,300-sf, 12th-floor terrace, which affords a "premium view" of the inaugural procession, while protecting guests from winter weather in a heated tent.
The JW will assist in designing and decorating the tented space to fit the group, whether that means creating a posh lounge, swanky clubhouse, casual sports bar, Polynesian paradise, or something more directly tied to the ceremony.
The package also includes the use of two presidential suites, two vice presidential suites, 300 guest rooms, and up to $200,000 in food and beverage for events with up to 450 attendees.
The recent upgrades of the suites was part of a larger, $33 million freshening of the hotel's lobby and 737 guest rooms.
