Dutch hotel company CitizenM has opened its fifth CitizenM hotel in the U.S. in Southwest D.C., and it calls its rooms “the hotel room, reinvented.”

The 12-story, 252-room hotel is at 6th and E streets Southwest, near the L’Enfant Plaza Metro station and within walking distance of The Wharf.

The hotel has a large living room instead of a lobby, seven bookable meeting rooms, a rooftop bar with terrace, and a canteen offering grab-and-go food, snacks and drinks 24 hours a day, sourced from D.C.-based catering and food delivery company Chef Jess.
