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.

“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.

On October 11, the Savoy Suites Hotel (2505 Wisconsin Ave.) will host a cocktail reception and fundraiser for Friends of Guy Mason, the nonprofit group that helps maintain the Guy Mason Recreation Center (3600 Calvert St.).

Although Guy Mason is a city-run facility, Friends of Guy Mason augments what the government’s stretched budget is able to provide. In the past, the group has maintained the center’s tree canopy and fragrance garden; installed new playground equipment; and led community cleanup days. “We promise to continue to be strong advocates for the interests of students, faculty, and guests inside the building as well as all the outdoor users,” writes FOGM president Dan Melman in a statement to Glover Parkers. “As we build upon our past successes, we ask you to support us in our efforts to steward and improve our local treasure. We cannot do it without you.”

The October 11 event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets cost $60 each and can be purchased at the Friends of Guy Mason website.
