Just a month after the opening of D.C.’s first Cambria Hotel & Suites, in the historic Shaw neighborhood, the District is saying ”hello” to another important hotel brand. Hyatt Hotels Corp., The JBG Cos. and Crescent Hotels & Resorts last week announced the opening of the city’s first Hyatt Place.
The 14-story Hyatt Place Washington D.C./U.S. Capitol opened on June 26 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. It is located at 33 New York Ave., N.E., in the NoMa district, one of the city’s fastest-growing neighborhoods.
Cooper Carry designed the hotel. Hyatt Place Washington D.C./U.S. Capitol has 200 rooms, all with plush beds, sofas and HDTVs. It also provides its guests with free Wi-Fi, a large state-of-the-art fitness facility, an outdoor pool and terrace, as well as 1,600 square feet of meeting space.
“We are very excited to bring the Hyatt Place brand to Washington, D.C., a large and energetic city filled with restaurants, museums, theaters and entertainment attractions,” said Stacy Smith, general manager of the new property. “We believe this new hotel will add an exciting, new dynamic to the neighborhood, and we are confident that Hyatt Place D.C./U.S. Capitol will exceed guest expectations by providing both business and leisure travelers with everything they need while away from home.”
“JBG is excited to enter the growing NoMa district with the introduction of Hyatt Place Washington D.C./U.S. Capitol,” added JBG Principal Moina Banerjee. “This brand is a state-of-the-art product, and we are extremely proud to be the first Hyatt Place hotel in Washington, D.C.”
