Hamilton Crowne Plaza
From its location on historic Franklin Square, the Hamilton Crowne Plaza is central to everything that makes Washington a top destination for business and leisure travelers alike. The busy area has long been recognized as a hub of business and commercial activity and Alexander Graham Bell’s first wireless transmission originated from the nearby Franklin School.
Recently renovated in early 2013, Hamilton Crowne Plaza gracefully combines traditional ambiance with the latest in guest amenities and high-tech conveniences. Upgrades include restoring the original 1920s Beaux Arts-style arched ceiling with gold-gilt paint, a new lobby design in a new rich palate, decorative historic maps and 1920s imagery, an expanded lounge, and refurnished guestrooms and suites.
Just four blocks from the Washington's convention center, within easy access of the convenient Metro system and with an adjacent 12,000-square foot conference facility, the Hamilton is the perfect Washington address for your next visit.
Franklin Square was the site of Alexander Graham Bell's first wireless transmission in 1880.
