There are no worries on whether the $20-million facelift of The Madison Hotel will be completed in time for the Presidential Inauguration in January 2013. The storied hotel, which was officially opened by guest of honor President John F. Kennedy in February 1963, has accommodated innumerable VIP guests throughout its history. It was announced that the hotel’s restoration is set for completion sometime in April 2012, with renowned interior designer Dominick Coyne at the helm of this elaborate project. A major aspect of the transformation is the refurbishing of all three of the luxury hotel’s Presidential suites, which provide 2,000 square feet of living space. These spacious accommodations are of particular interest to many of the diplomatic delegates who stay at The Madison Hotel. Mr. Coyne cites the architecture of Washington, DC, as being his main inspiration for the project; he is very familiar with the luxury hotel
, as he also designed its Federalist Restaurant. The Madison Hotel has remained open during this work-in-progress period.
