Video: Bloomberg Interviews Euro Capital Founder & Watergate Hotel Owner Jacques Cohen

Following a nine-year hiatus and massive renovation, The Watergate Hotel has reopened and is already turning heads. Bloomberg's latest interview with Euro Capital Properties founder and owner of The Watergate Hotel, Jacques Cohen, dives into the challenges and opportunities of the project.

BBGM was the Architect on the project, which entailed a $125M renovation to the property.  Mr. Cohen goes into detail about challenges regarding demolition and expansion of public areas and event spaces.  With spectacular views of the water, the property boasts an impressive rooftop bar and pre-function spaces, in what Mr. Cohen refers to as a much-needed luxury lifestyle hotel for Washington, DC.

The top-to-bottom 1960's branding and mid-century modern design further The Watergate Hotel's position as a glamour icon in the hospitality industry. Watch the video for additional details on the building's captivating architectural history, and the unique approach that was taken to restore the hotel to its full potential.
