Georgetown Inn Turns 50 | Events
From Dannia Hakki: Last night, the Georgetown Inn's new owner Nayan Patel of Your DC Hotels hosted a private soiree in celebration of the historic Inn's 50 year Anniversary. Previous owners, Georgetown residents, Georgetown & George Washington University executives and influential DC-media with fond memories at the Inn made a toast to the hotel's half-century birthday. During the 1960's and 1970s, the Georgetown Inn housed Hollywood stars, royalty and sports icons such as the Mercury Seven (the seven original astronauts), artist Andy Warhol, actors Robert Stack and George Burns, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and political luminaries like the Kennedy family. The Inn welcomed new ownership in November 2011 with Nayan Patel, who pays homage to the Inn's history and European charm as a quaint, 96-room alternative to the large luxury hotels that have flooded Washington. Patel has plans to renovate the hotel over the course of the next few years with the help of his Your DC Hotels team, including Director of Operations Chetan Patel, General Manager Kelly Curry, Director of Marketing Heidi Bitar and David McDermott.
