IHG opens first Vignette Collection hotel in the Americas

IHG Hotels & Resorts has debuted the Vignette Collection in the Americas with the opening of Yours Truly DC.

Vignette Collection, the newest brand in IHG’s Luxury & Lifestyle portfolio, is a family of hotels connected by a shared vision that travel can benefit local people and places. Located in Washington, DC’s Dupont Circle, Yours Truly is a “bohemian-inspired haven designed to feel like a warm, welcoming home,” according to the company.

“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,” said Claire Bennett, global chief customer officer, IHG Hotels & Resorts. “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.”

The 355-room property, like all Vignette Collection hotels, is unique in its own right, with its own distinct outlook and story to tell, according to the company. Designed by Simeone Deary Design Group, the hotel was inspired by a “bohemian-meets-brutalist” stylistic balance, embracing the building’s architectural bones and evoking a curated home-away-from-home.

Amenities include an outpost of Groom Guy, a modern barber shop offering haircuts and premium personal care products; a gym, which shares inspiring workouts daily on its chalkboard walls; and 15,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event spaces, including a studio and ping-pong room to an outdoor patio and 3,400-sq.-ft. ballroom.

Yours Truly DC is Vignette Collection’s fourth hotel to open, joining Hotel X Brisbane Fortitude Valley in Australia, Sindhorn Midtown Hotel Bangkok in Thailand and Casa da Companhia in Portugal. Future openings span from El Gran Encomendero in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and The Gwendolyn in Oregon’s wine country to Carlton Al Moaibed Hotel in Saudi Arabia, House of Chinhara in Zimbabwe and RIHGA Royal Hotel Osaka in Japan. The brand has 14 hotels in the pipeline, and more than 100 properties globally are anticipated to join in the next 10 years.
