IHG Hotels and Resorts has added the first US property under its Vignette Collection brand.
Previously known as the Renaissance DuPont Circle Hotel and subsequently The Wink, the refurbished 355-room hotel opened under its current name Yours Truly DC in 2020.
Located at 1143 New Hampshire Avenue in the city’s Dupont Circle neighbourhood, the design-led property features South American cafe, restaurant and cocktail bar Mercy Me, and breakfast and lunch deli Call Your Mother.
Other facilities include a fitness centre with Peloton bikes, barber shop Groom Guy, record store El Donut Shoppe, and 15,000 square feet of events space ranging from a ping pong room to a 3,400 square foot ballroom.
IHG launched the luxury lifestyle Vignette brand in 2021, with Hotel X in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley the first to join the brand, followed by properties in Portugal and Thailand.
There are currently 14 hotels in the brand’s pipeline, with a target of reaching 100 properties worldwide over the next ten years.
Earlier this month IHG announced plans to debut its Vignette Collection in China and Germany.
Commenting on the news Claire Bennett, global chief customer officer for IHG Hotels and Resorts, said:
“We committed to bring Vignette Collection to the American market and this first opening in the nation’s capital sets the stage for growth of Vignette Collection across the Americas.
“The global success of the brand in just over a year since launch, with four hotels already welcoming guests in cities like Bangkok and Brisbane, speaks to our focus on delivering one-of-a-kind hotels and memorable experiences alongside a commitment to more responsible travel.
“Whether you travel for work or pleasure, Yours Truly DC welcomes guests not just with an invitation to stay and relax, but also to explore and discover Washington DC. T
“This is an exciting addition to the over 6,000 hotels available within the recently reimagined IHG One Rewards loyalty programme, and we look forward to creating unique moments and unexpected connections at Yours Truly DC for our members and guests.”
