Spotlight On: Marriott Marquis Washington D.C.
tvsdesign and Cooper Carry have once again partnered to bring a great neighbor to the Washington Convention Center, located in the District of Columbia.
“For some time, we have worked diligently to bring a world-class hotel to the Convention Center that will spur development and offer new jobs for District residents. [The] new state-of-the-art Marriott Marquis brings approximately 1,600 construction jobs, and when the hotel opens, offers more than 1,000 jobs for District residents in the hospitality industry,” said Washington D.C. Mayor, Adrian M. Fenty.
The 1,000,000 gsf hotel features:
- 1,170 guestrooms on fourteen floors above the lobby
- Over 100,000 sf of meeting and assembly space
- Five food and beverage outlets
- Sub grade connection to convention center
The overall design approach reflects an appropriate level of contemporary thinking while respecting the undeniable architectural traditions of our nation’s capital. The hotel itself even incorporates an adjacent historic building that is re purposed as unique guestrooms for the larger hotel.
