On October 8, 2020, West Hollywood, California-based Viceroy Hotels & Resorts inaugurated Hotel Zena on Thomas Circle.

The property called itself “a groundbreaking hotel dedicated to female empowerment”, as quoted by dc.eater.com from a press release.

Andrea Sheehan, the founder of Seattle- and London-based Dawson Design Associates (DDA), for instance, commissioned a massive pointillist portrait of late Supreme Court justice and feminist icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The portrait has been made out of 20,000 hand-painted tampons.

The other 60 art pieces that the hotel houses were painted, photographed, sculpted, or stitched by “feminists of both genders around the globe fighting for human rights,” the release was further quoted. The is also a curving wall with 8,000 protest buttons representing feminist events.
