The Washington Marriott Marquis Convention Hotel is located in the District of Columbia next to the Washington Convention Center and is one of four Marquis properties in the world. The project consists of 1,170 guest rooms on fourteen floors above the lobby and more than 100,000 sf of meeting and assembly space.
The heart of the hotel will be the Grand Lobby which is designed to be a large, open, welcoming space activated with natural daylight from an interior atrium with a glass roof over 130' above the ground floor. Hotel registration occurs to the west side of the lobby and a cascading floor integrates the various lobby bar and food service areas associated with the space. Around the perimeter of the hotel, five publicly accessible retail and restaurant outlets will help activate the neighborhood. Overall, the 1m gsf property reflects an appropriate level of modernity while respecting the strong architectural traditions of our nation's capital.
The project was designed by tvsdesign in collaboration with Cooper Carry and achieved LEED® Silver certification.
