Courtyard by Marriott Convention Center
135,000 SF | Landmark Hotel | Private Transaction
Built in 1891 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this project showcases the company’s ability to reconcile seemingly conflicting development needs. The extensive renovation of the former Washington Loan & Trust building included restoration of original marble floors, the ornate gold-leaf ceiling, and the lobby’s Corinthian columns. The conversion into the 188-key Courtyard by Marriott Hotel and Convention Center has resulted in the Center being ranked #1 in performance for two consecutive years among Courtyard Hotels worldwide. The 135,000-square-foot property is located near the Smithsonian Mall, the Verizon Center and Pennsylvania Avenue.
