Hilton and Hyatt Hotels have introduced a 413-room, dual-branded hotel at the waterfront community, The Wharf in Washington DC.
The hotel will be located between Maine Avenue and Wharf Street, adjacent to 7th Street Park and is expected to open in 2017.
It will consist of two properties, a 120,000ft² lifestyle brand hotel, Canopy by Hilton, which will feature 175 rooms and a 145,000ft² extended-stay hotel, Hyatt House consisting of 238 keys.
The combined hotels will include a cafe/bar and other dining options, as well a 1,100ft² fitness center, a courtyard with outdoor terraces, outdoor pool; and a rooftop bar, along with 2,500ft² meeting space.
The hotel will be approximately 300,000ft², including ground-floor retail and shared space, as well as two levels of below grade parking.
Both hotels will be designed by SmithGroup JJR and managed by Concord Hospitality Enterprises Company.
Hilton Worldwide CEO Christopher J Nassetta said: "We are excited about introducing our Canopy by Hilton brand to the Washington region and believe this is a perfect addition to The Wharf’s long-term vision of creating an urban neighbourhood on the DC waterfront.
"Canopy is a thoughtfully local new hotel brand that redefines the lifestyle category. Canopy will offer a fresh approach to hospitality by incorporating design and culture elements from The Wharf into the hotel, delivering a positive stay experience."
Madison Marquette CEO Amer Hammour said: "This array of internationally branded accommodations combined with extraordinary ground floor shops and restaurants will further enhance the rare waterfront experience to stay, work, entertain, relax, shop, and dine along the water."
