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.)

From the February 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

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.

“The aptly-named Glover Park Beer Garden opens on Wednesday,” writes Anna Spiegel in Washingtonian. “The summer-long pop-up takes over the outdoor patio of the Savoy Suites Hotel at 2505 Wisconsin Avenue, Northwest, and will serve a range of brews and German-style eats.” To minimize noise complaints, the outdoor bar will close at 11 p.m., Spiegel writes.

515e43e8e4b0daad6e7c6a5eBalance Gym co-founder Graham King has a new venture at the Savoy Suites Hotel (2505 Wisconsin Ave.): Roam Fitness, an indoor/outdoor training gym. “Our motto, Fitness Without Boundaries, stems from the belief that health and wellness should not be confined to the four walls of a gym,” King tells us. “Our signature program ‘OutRun’ gets people out of the gym and into DC’s open spaces like Rock Creek Park, the Tow Path, Roosevelt Island, etc. We never take the same route, and we incorporate the obstacles we find along the way into the workout. For example, in a 4-mile run we will stop along the way for pushups, pullups, squats…and stump jumping.” Inside the hotel, a new gym facility features free weights and cardio machines as well as functional fitness equipment such as sandbags, hurdles, kettlebells, and gymnastic rings, King says.

Monthly gym memberships start at $50, and individual classes cost $25 each. But Roam Fitness is currently offering free trial memberships that last through the end of May and include unlimited classes. To sign up, click here.
