Checking In: An Updated Map Of D.C.'s Anticipated Hotels
1. Marriott Marquis
Washington, DC 20001
This one is so close to completion, we can smell it: the scent of construction dust disappearing forever! This Convention Center neighbor opens on May 1st.
2. Old Post Office Pavilion: Future Trump Hotel
Washington, DC 20004
This hotel won't open until 2016 but the current residents of the Old Post Office Pavilion have started to move out and renderings have been revealed for the ballrooms and guest rooms.
3. The Westin Bethesda
Bethesda, MD 20814
The Westin in Bethesda won't open until October 2015, so it's not bookable and there are not yet any renderings. Strangely enough, this hasn't changed since last June. However, there's a prime location on Wisconsin Avenue. The picture reflects the current occupant via Google Street View.
4. The Line DC
Washington, DC 20009
It's now clear that this full service hotel which has started construction and will will incorporate the facade of the neighboring First Church of Christ, Scientist now has a new name: The Line DC. More mysteries have yet to be revealed for this one.
5. CityCenter DC Hotel
Washington, DC 20001
Right now there's still very little information about this hotel coming to the mega-complex by the Convention Center. Right now, it's clear that it will have 350 rooms, it will be bordered by 10th Street, I Street and New York Avenue and will reportedly be run by Hilton.
6. Hyatt Place Washington (NoMa)
Washington, DC 20002
This 14 story hotel is the only one of three Hyatt Place hotels coming to the District that already has a presence on the company's website. They're accepting reservations now and anticipating a late October opening.
7. Hyatt Conference Center and Hotel at The Parks at Walter Reed
Washington, DC 20012
When the Hines/Urban Atlantic partnership won the Walter Reed bid last fall, they made clear that a Hyatt conference center and hotel was a part of their development plans. That said, it could be awhile until that part of the plan is activated.
8. Intercontinental Hotel at The Wharf
The enormous Southwest revitalization project which broke ground last week will include a 280 Intercontinental Hotel.
9. Hyatt Place (Federal Center SW)
Washington, DC 20024
Ground broke at the end of 2013 on this 214 room hotel that will be conveniently close to the National Mall.
10. Hampton Inn & Suites
Washington, DC 20003
Expect to see this 168-room, 13-story hotel deliver near the middle of 2015. This is only one of the hotels coming to the suddenly busy (and Curbed Cup winning) area near Nationals Park.
11. Homewood Suites
Washington, DC 20003
Much like the neighboring Hampton Inn, this one also has not yet made an appearance on the Hilton website. Then again, construction won't even begin until, at best, late 2015. This hotel will be eleven stories high and have 195 available rooms.
12. Springhill Suites By Marriott
Washington, DC 20017
This project may or may not actually happen. The nine story, 314-room hotel has another two years to come up with the funds.
13. Hyatt Place (West End)
Washington, DC 20037
This is kind of a weird one. The nine story, 168 room Hyatt Place is actually taking over a vacant lot and will be connected to a Washington Marriott Hotel (shown) that's already there.
14. University of Maryland East Campus Hotel
College Park, MD
As of late last year, the University was still looking to close on a land deal that would allow them to build the 300 room hotel with 10,000 square feet of conference space that they've been wanting to construct for almost a decade. Stay tuned.
15. MGM Resorts International - National Harbor
Oxon Hill, MD 20745
Could a casino really come to National Harbor without giving guests a place to stay? That's why the massive MGM International Resort, slated to open in mid-2016 will include a 300-room hotel.
