As part of a multi-million dollar transformation, Hamilton Hotel Washington, D.C. is collaborating with HBO to design a Presidential suite and lounge that pays tribute to the network’s award-winning series, “VEEP.”
The new signature guest suite brings the hit comedy to life with original furniture, props and memorabilia from the show’s vast seven-season set collection. Hamilton Hotel will unveil the exclusive “VEEP” experience this week, timed to the premiere week of the much-anticipated final season.
“As part of an extensive property transformation, the hotel is introducing unexpected experiences that guests will find only at Hamilton. Through our ‘VEEP’ suite, the show’s highly-engaged fans can continue to appreciate the incredibly popular show, and its beloved Selina Meyer, beyond the series finale,” said Mark J. Driscoll, managing director at Hamilton Hotel Washington, D.C
As guests, visitors and fans arrive on the hotel’s 12th floor, where the suite resides, they will view a replica of President Selina Meyer’s Oval Office in the common area. Curated in conjunction with set designers and prop masters from the series’ production and HBO, original props include the Presidential Resolute Desk, a presidential seal area rug, a grandfather clock, an oversized portrait of Selina, and other recognizable photographs, art and decorative objects.
Adorning the hallway to the one-bedroom “Selina Meyer Presidential Suite” are other notable cast photographs from multiple seasons. Once inside the suite, guests are transported to Selina’s brownstone residence through original set props and mementos from her home. The space includes a framed Smith College diploma, Catherine and Selina family photos, a Vice Presidential china plate with Selina’s photo, a throw pillow of Mount Rushmore featuring Selina’s face and multiple other photos and decorative objects. The suite’s living room also features original furniture from the brownstone, including Selina’s bar cabinet, a console table and a writing table.
Hamilton Hotel partnered with Terri Jannes Interiors, based in Weston, Connecticut, to design the suite and oval office, using the original pieces from HBO. Hotel guests who book the suite will receive a complimentary copy of Selina Meyer’s autobiography, A Woman First: First Woman and a sheet of commemorative Selina Meyer presidential stamps.
