The Morrow Hotel is inspired by the vibrant heritage of the surrounding NoMa neighborhood and infuses its artful spirit throughout the entire property. Located on the last site of Central Armature Works, a 100-year-old electrical manufacturing and repair business, the hotel’s design emphasizes the historical context of Washington D.C. and the local NoMA setting while representing a distinctly modern vision.

The design of the public spaces, including the lobby, restaurant, cocktail lounge, and rooftop bar, create a series of differentiated experiences from light and airy to dark and sophisticated by invoking the times of the day from morning to night. From daybreak to nightfall, the property provides dynamic experiences that effortlessly guide guests from space to space, both physically and mentally. An uplifting experience is created upon arrival with a bright, airy lobby featuring intimate seating areas surrounded by harmonic lighting and ambient music that transitions with the light throughout the day while a crisp breeze on the rooftop coupled with the lush greenery on the terrace create small, memorable moments.
