PROVIDENCE, RI—TPG Hotels & Resorts was selected to operate the first Moxy hotel in Washington. In coordination with owner/developer Douglas Development Corporation of Washington DC, TPG Hotels & Resorts will provide technical development services assistance throughout the development process and manage the property upon completion, currently targeted for Q1 2017.
Moxy DC Hotel, under Marriott International’s contemporary lifestyle brand, will be located on the corner of 11th & K Sts. in Washington.
“We are thrilled to partner with Douglas Development and to be the first hotel company to manage a Moxy-branded hotel in the Greater DC area,” said Paul Sacco, chief development officer, TPG Hotels & Resorts. “Moxy DC Hotel, an exciting new Marriott-family brand, is yet another example of new lifestyle hotels TPG is actively engaged in throughout the U.S., which complements our successful history of operating core, full-service brands for over three decades.”
Douglas’ design plans involve incorporating an existing historic building into the overall design and function of the Moxy brand. The 13-story hotel will contain 200 guestrooms, a rooftop lounge, an outdoor street level patio, and also feature a live Instagram Wall capturing images in real time from Moxy travelers worldwide.
The design and style will feature an industrial look and the aesthetic of polished concrete floors, exposed concrete columns and open ceilings.
In addition, the hotel will feature keyless entry, screencasting, ample plugins, tech-enabled rooms, motion sensor lighting under bed and free WiFi.
“This site at 11th and K embodies all the key characteristics we look for when considering historic restoration and repurposing through thoughtful expansion,” said Douglas Jemal, founder and president, DDC. “The conversion of this property to a Moxy Hotel will add excitement and vibrancy to this high profile location. We look forward to delivering another marquis development to the greater DC area.”
