Slated to open in the third quarter of 2018, the mixed-use project will include a newly built 357-room Courtyard hotel and a 147-suite Residence Inn hotel. Located at 901 L Street, NW, the planned hotels will be adjacent to the Washington D.C. Convention Center and will be in the midst of the city's central business district, close to Capitol Hill. The hotels will share approximately 10,000 square feet of meeting space comprised of multiple meetings rooms, a board room and three hospitality suites. Additional joint hotel amenities include a fitness facility and full-service restaurant. Capstone Development and Quadrangle Development are the owners and developers of Columbia Place. The architect of record is Cooper Carry.

Convention Center, these two hotels will provide comfortable upscale accommodations and amenities for business and leisure travelers."
The Courtyard by Marriott will have 357 guestrooms and an independently operated, full-service restaurant which will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Each guestroom is designed with a flexible layout, including a work desk, high-speed wireless internet and a flat screen television.
