D.C.’s $2 billion Wharfa world-class, mixed-use waterfront development on the Potomac Riveris getting a new hotel. Or, to be more accurate, it’s getting two new hotels.

Hoffman-Madison Waterfront, a joint venture partnership of PN Hoffman and Madison Marquette, and the master developer of the massive project, recently announced that Hilton Worldwide and Hyatt Hotels Corp. will open a 413-key dual-branded hotel at The Wharf. They will be part of the world-class development’s first phase, which is expected to open in the third quarter of 2017.

Canopy by Hilton will be a 120,000-square-foot lifestyle brand hotel. It will be accompanied by the 145,000-square-foot, 238-key, Hyatt House extended-stay hotel. The combined properties will have approximately 300,000 square feet and will be located between Maine Avenue and Wharf Street, adjacent to 7th Street Park. In addition to numerous amenities such as a café/bar, a 1,100-square-foot fitness center, 2,500 square feet of meeting space, a courtyard, and an outdoor pool, the property will also offer more than 30,000 square feet of street-level retail and restaurant space and two levels of underground parking.

The project is designed by SmithGroup JJR. Concord Hospitality Enterprises Company will manage the dual-branded property which is scheduled for opening in the fall of 2017.
