From the November 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Negotiations concerning a proposed rooftop deck at the Savoy Suites Hotel (2505 Wisconsin Ave.) were ongoing at press time, but one knowledgeable observer believed that hotel management and near neighbors were close to a compromise that would allow the deck to go forward, while addressing concerns about increased noise and parking issues.

From the October 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

A local hotel’s bid to build a rooftop deck is facing stiff neighborhood resistance. The Glover Park and Massachusetts Avenue Heights advisory neighborhood commissions have protested the Savoy Suites Hotel’s application to serve alcohol on its rooftop, and the Massachusetts Avenue Heights Citizens Association has appealed a building permit for the deck that was issued in May. Opponents of the deck fear that it will create late-night noise and exacerbate local parking woes. The hotel, located at 2505 Wisconsin Ave., is undergoing a major renovation, at the end of which it will be renamed the Glover Park Hotel.

The Savoy recently won one small administrative victory in the deck fight. On September 9, the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board dismissed a protest filed by a group of 17 near neighbors, because only one member of the group had actually signed the protest letter. The group was given 10 days to sign and resubmit its letter. A status hearing on the matter is set for October 14, and a protest hearing on November 18.

From the September 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3B has filed a protest against a planned roof deck at the Savoy Suites Hotel (2505 Wisconsin Ave.). The ANC will withdraw its protest if the hotel reaches a compromise agreement with neighbors, according to commissioner Jackie Blumenthal.
The planned deck, which would have a seating capacity of 136, is part of an ongoing renovation that will end with the hotel being renamed “The Glover Park Hotel.” Near neighbors have raised concerns about the deck’s potential to create late-night noise and parking problems. The Savoy has been negotiating with neighbors to establish rules for the deck that would address their concerns, but at press time, no compromise had been reached.

The rooftop deck at Surfside (2444 Wisconsin Ave.) operates under a voluntary agreement that stipulates it must be closed by midnight, and any music must be recorded, unamplified, and inaudible outside of the premises. The ANC argues that any new rooftop deck in the neighborhood should not be allowed to stay open later or play louder music. (Two other establishments, Mason Inn at 2408 Wisconsin Ave. and Mad Fox Tap Room at 2218 Wisconsin Ave., are allowed to serve alcohol on rooftop decks, but neither of those decks has been built.)

The gym formerly known as Roam Fitness has rebranded as Urban Athletic Club, according to owner Graham King. The club, located inside the Savoy Suites Hotel (2505 Wisconsin Ave.), made a splash in 2013 when it opened with outdoor fitness classes, but it also features a fully equipped indoor studio and classes. “While ‘Roam’ was a good name, it confused some people, as they didn’t know that we had an indoor facility that offered personal training and group classes,” King tells us.
