The largest new hotel project in the country is Washington's Marriott Marquis at Massachusetts Ave and Ninth St, across from the Convention Center. This 1,167-room hotel got the go-ahead in 2009, and broke ground late in 2010, but didn't really get going until this year (after financing and a lawsuit were dealt with). The project is expected to cost $520M and will include five restaurants, retail, 100,000 square feet of meeting space, and hopes to be finished by 2014.
