The $50 million facility includes 148 guest rooms and a full-service restaurant and lounge. It also features 20,000 square feet of technologically advanced conference space and 12 meeting rooms, including two ballrooms.

The project meets the stringent standards of the International Association of Conference Centers (IACC) and is designed to the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold standard of sustainability.

The Mason Inn was recently awarded Project of the Year in the Multi-Family Residential/Hospitality category by Mid-Atlantic Construction magazine’s Best of 2010 awards program.

Operated by ARAMARK Higher Education, The Mason Inn provides a high-quality venue for university events, academic conferences and other activities. In addition, it is open to the public and expects to attract trade from nearby Washington, D.C.
