Washington, D.C.’s Hotel Zena is about to add an extra dose of female empowerment to the U.S. capital.
Opening in the District of Columbia’s Logan Circle neighborhood, the 191-room hotel will serve as a “cultural hub celebrating the accomplishments of women and recognizing their enduring struggle for gender equality,” according to a press release from parent company Viceroy Hotels & Resorts. Sixty commissioned pieces of artwork will spread a message of struggle, empowerment and hope throughout the property, but its lobby will host perhaps the most powerful piece of all: a pointillist portrait of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, made with 20,000 handpainted and repurposed tampons.
“Hotel Zena was created primarily by women, for people — both women and men,” said Bill Walshe, CEO of Viceroy Hotels & Resorts. “It is a hotel that offers a haven for all genders, races and sexualities, and where an atmosphere of strength and femininity live in harmony. [It’s] our second hotel to open in Washington, D.C. ... and we are looking beyond the power and politics of the city to better position our nation’s capital as a hub for culture, unity and empowerment.”
Hotel Zena will follow the hotel industry’s Safe Stay cleaning and safety program to ensure guests’ safety from COVID-19.
