Park Hyatt Washington embodies the spirit of Americana, reflecting timeless regional attributes and the unique culture of the nation’s capital. The entrance of the hotel celebrates the city’s famous blossoming cherry trees with glass box sculptures etched with images of their flowers and branches; the persimmon colored burlap wall behind the reception area hints at the red stripes of the American flag, while Windsor-style chairs dot the hotel’s interior to further enhance the modern Americana aesthetic.

The most comprehensive presentation of The Phillips Collection’s American art collection undertaken in nearly 40 years, Made in the USA showcases more than 200 masterpieces – from romantic seascapes and jazzy city scenes to abstract canvases and boldly colored portraits – by more than 125 artists whose new visual language made American art an international sensation.

The Made in the USA Suite is subject to availability and reservations must be made at least 72 hours in advance. For additional information or to reserve the suite, please visit or call +1 800-778-7477.

About The Phillips Collection:
The Phillips Collection is one of the world’s most distinguished collections of impressionist and modern American and European art. Stressing the continuity between art of the past and present, it offers a strikingly original and experimental approach to modern art by combining works of different nationalities and periods in displays that change frequently. The setting is similarly unconventional, featuring small rooms, a domestic scale, and a personal atmosphere. Artists represented in the collection include Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Vincent van Gogh, Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse, Pierre Bonnard, Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee, Claude Monet, Honoré Daumier, Georgia O’Keeffe, Arthur Dove, Mark Rothko, Milton Avery, Jacob Lawrence, and Richard Diebenkorn, among others. The Phillips Collection, America’s first museum of modern art, has an active collecting program and regularly organizes acclaimed special exhibitions, many of which travel internationally. The Intersections series features projects by contemporary artists, responding to art and spaces in the museum. The Phillips also produces award-winning education programs for K–12 teachers and students, as well as for adults. The museum’s Center for the Study of Modern Art explores new ways of thinking about art and the nature of creativity, through artist visits and lectures, and provides a forum for scholars through courses, postdoctoral fellowships, and internships. Since 1941, the museum has hosted Sunday Concerts in its wood-paneled Music Room. The Phillips Collection is a private, non-government museum, supported primarily by donations.
