Second DC-Area AC Marriott Hotel To Open In Dupont Circle
South Carolina-based OTO Development plans to open the 219-room hotel at the former Smith & Wollensky restaurant site on 19th Street, the Washington Business Journal reports.
OTO bought the property, at 1112 19th St NW, from an affiliate of The Forge Co for $23.4M. The restaurant shut down in March, and in May the owner retained Cushman & Wakefield to market the property as a redevelopment site with up to 105k SF of potential density.
OTO plans to break ground next fall and have the hotel open by August 2019. [WBJ]
