According to the Washington Buisness Journal, the Watergate Hotel has finally sold for a cool $45 million.  Euro Capital Properties Inc. of New York are the lucky new owners of the infamous property and DC-must see. 

I am already wondering if (and how) the new owners are going to update the space.  As iconic as the building is in its own right, the Watergate Hotel could really use an interior update.  I can already see an eye-catching lighting treatment for the building’s ultra-low ceiling heights….

Samantha can often be found daydreaming by the Rothkos of the East Gallery, sketching store facades along 14th, and snapping photos with her vintage polaroid at 9:30 club concerts. Since moving to DC in 2007 to get an MFA in Interior Design, her eyes can’t seem to be peeled away from the beautiful things in this city.
