A new themed suite at Hamilton Hotel Washington, D.C., celebrates women’s right to vote. The new signature suite is available now and is a collaboration with the Freedom Forum’s Newseum. The one-bedroom suite on the hotel’s 12th floor also received influence from Samantha Barry, editor in chief, Glamour, who helped curate the space’s decor.


The suite is filled with artifacts from the Freedom Forum’s Newseum collection, as well as a private collection on loan from political activist Barbara Lee. Items on display include issues of The Revolution, the women’s rights newspaper; a 1916 suffrage poster; historical campaign buttons celebrating the suffragist movement; and a 2018 issue of The New Yorker that celebrated the 116 women elected to Congress that year. Imagery and artwork throughout the space depict other suffragist and feminist themes.


Other aspects of the decor take on the suffrage spirit as well. The color palette, for example, is filled with purples, yellows and whites, the colors suffragists historically used to represent loyalty, hope and purity. The decor also incorporates sunflowers, the suffrage movement’s official flower.


“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with the Freedom Forum’s Newseum to celebrate the milestone anniversary of women’s suffrage in the United States,” said Mark J. Driscoll, managing director, Hamilton Hotel Washington, D.C. “By creating an immersive themed suite, we will not only be able to offer guests a unique way to learn about this important movement in American history but show our commitment to offering guests unexpected and one-of-a-kind experiences found at one of D.C’s newest, independent luxury hotels.”

EzPacking Transparent Toiletry Bag

Plastic-averse travelers may shudder at the thought of using a resealable, zip-closed plastic bag for travel-sized liquids each and every time they travel. While some sturdier brands can be used multiple times, there’s a possibility the plastic could rip or the zipper could malfunction, therefore resulting in a free-for-all liquid disaster in your luggage. More secure toiletry bags can be safer bets, but fancy fabrics and designs can conceal the contents within, making them futile travel companions when it comes to TSA screenings.
