Marriott Marquis Washington, DC, Wins Real Estate Award
The Washington Business Journal honored the Marriott Marquis Washington, DC, in its Best Real Estate Deals of 2014 Awards.
“The new Marriott Marquis, offering 1,175 new guest rooms, meets expectations with all the bells and whistles hotels now offer. Mobile check-in and other services through designated apps, free Wi-Fi in the lobby, in-room cellphone charging stations, a 24-hour business center and an 8,000-square-foot fitness center are just part of the offerings designed to woo conventioneers.”
“The glass-and-steel hotel is designed by a joint-venture collaboration of Atlanta architecture firms Cooper Carry and tvsdesign, with interior design by HOK.”
“Entering the soaring atrium lobby, guests are greeted by a dramatic, 56-foot-high sculpture, ‘The Birth of the American Flag,’ by Baltimore-based sculptor Rodney Carroll. Two dramatic 54- and 52-foot bronze and silver walls frame the grand staircase to the lobby’s terrace. A cherry blossom branch running the length of the white marble lobby floor, a glass-enclosed fire pit and water features further enliven the space.”
