First Hotel At The Yards Signs Luxury Flag, Expected To Open In 2020
The mixed-use development that has transformed the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood will soon get its first hotel.
Thompson Hotels has signed on to make its luxury brand the flag for the 225-room hotel planned at The Yards.
The four-star Thompson D.C. hotel is expected to open in early 2020 at the corner of Third and Tingey streets SE, on Parcel L1 of Forest City's 48-acre waterfront mixed-use development. Boston-based JW Capital Partners and San Francisco-based Geolo Capital are partnering to develop the hotel and have agreed to sell it to Union Investment upon delivery.
The hotel will have a ground-level restaurant and bar with outdoor seating and a rooftop bar. Its standard guest rooms will range from 300 SF to 350 SF and will start at $350 per night. Its 38 suites will range from 425 SF to 800 SF. The hotel will also feature a fitness center, 4K SF of meeting space and a lobby lounge.
Studios Architecture and Parts and Labor Design are designing the hotel with a maritime theme to fit in with the Navy Yard, using industrial patterns and textures from historic naval structures.
