The Allen Lee Getting Renovated in Foggy Bottom, Will Become New Hotel with Restaurant

2224 F Street, NW

Dear PoPville,

I wanted to share something I noticed in Foggy Bottom. The Allen Lee, a rather run-down hotel (really, a quasi-hostel) at 2224 F Street, has a notice posted on the door about a public hearing regarding changes to the building. It mentions the proposed changes including a high-end restaurant and 81 room hotel.

The notice posted is a liquor license application which says:

“A new hotel/restaurant serving upscale food and drinks, with 81 rooms.”

Will update as construction progresses.
