Over the next few years, Washington, D.C.'s hotel industry is expected to grow with new developments breaking ground, finishing construction, and making the big bucks. A year ago, the D.C.

One can only expect to see the numbers continue to grow as projects like the Trump Hotel and The Conrad open their doors to the public.
