Managing Directors Kyle Stevenson, David Weymer and Mark Morris, as well as Senior Directors Dan Hawkins and Matthew Bailly completed the sale. Senior Managing Director Andy Coleman and Director Mauricio Rodriguez advised the buyer on the financing.

“The Hyatt Centric is located near a Washington Metro stop and is surrounded by over 10 million square feet of office space with an additional four million square feet under development,” said Morris, in a prepared statement. “The Rosslyn tenant roster includes several blue-chip companies, defense contractors and federal agencies. The hotel also looks amazing following a recent renovation and rebranding.”
