Hensel Phelps is proud to be a part of one of Washington's most anticipated projects as the general contractor – The Washington Convention Center Marriott Hotel.

One of only four Marriott Marquis properties in the country, the hotel will showcase 1,175- rooms, 46-suites, and more than 53,000 square feet of meeting rooms. Especially significant is the fact that the hotel is being built adjacent to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, making it a signature site for visitors and conventioneers to the District.

Scheduled to open in spring 2014, the Marriott will feature an elegant lobby and five separate retail and restaurant outlets on the ground floor. Included in the plans also are a 30,000-square- foot grand ballroom, two 10,800-square-foot junior ballrooms, an 18,800-square-foot indoor event terrace and a 5,200-square-foot rooftop terrace.
