Dual-branded Canopy and Hyatt House coming to Washington, D.C.

Hilton and Hyatt are partnering to bring a 413-key, nearly 300,000-square-foot hotel to The Wharf in Southwest D.C. With the previously announced 275-room InterContinental Hotel by Carr Hospitality, the Hyatt-Hilton proposal marks the completion of The Wharf’s Phase I hotel deals.

The dual-branded venture will include both a lifestyle brand hotel (a 120,000-square-foot, 175-key Canopy by Hilton) and an extended-stay hotel (a 145,000-square-foot, 238-key Hyatt House) with 30,000 square feet of street-level retail and restaurant space between Maine Avenue and Wharf Street. There will be two levels of underground parking.

“We are excited about introducing our Canopy by Hilton brand to the Washington region and believe this is a perfect addition to The Wharf’s long-term vision of creating an urban neighborhood on the D.C. waterfront,” said Christopher J. Nassetta, president and CEO of Hilton Worldwide, in a press release.
