January 9, 2023

WASHINGTON, DC – Washington Marriott Capitol Hill debuts on January 11, standing between Washington DC’s iconic Capitol Hill and emerging NoMa neighborhoods.

“The new Washington Marriott Capitol Hill reflects the transformation of the Marriott brand, delivering imaginative design, memorable food and drink concepts, and uncompromising service that will appeal to guests and locals, delivering authentic and memorable experiences,” said Rick Sawyer, General Manager.

Located within walking distance of the US Capitol, Union Station, and the bustling Union Market neighborhood, the hotel is a true urban retreat. Situated within the newly developed NoMa Center, the hotel sits adjacent to 40,000 square feet of new retail and restaurants. Guest rooms provide workstations with high-speed internet access, as well as luxurious linens and modern amenities. There is also an expansive 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness center so guests can keep up their fitness routines while away from home.

Inspired Innovation

Upon arrival, guests enter sophisticated public areas designed by award-winning, local Washington, DC-based designer, Darryl Carter. Society Commons, a social hub from day to night, features an intimate bar and a full-service restaurant, which transitions with guests from social to business, creative, and personal activities.

The hotel’s design seeks to honor the past by capturing a spirit that is focused, determined, and efficient using crisp and streamlined architectural and decor elements that are intentional and purposeful. The materials are polished and refined, with hints of strong metals and warm woods. The style embraces the future by combining these metals and woods in fearless applications, using contemporary forms and angular shapes that are both unexpected and dramatic.

A standard across Marriott Hotels globally, the hotel’s M Club is open 24/7 as an exclusive space reserved for hotel guests who are Marriott Bonvoy Elite members. Benefits include complimentary food and beverage throughout the day such as hot breakfast, evening hors d’oeuvres, and premium beverages, ensuring uninterrupted productivity for business travelers.

Next Level Meetings

With 18,000 square feet of state-of-the-art pre-function and event space, the hotel creates connections and offers spaces that can be adapted to varied sizes and formats. The ballroom delivers uninterrupted sight lines and features 15-foot ceilings and leading-edge lighting.

Designed to creatively accommodate today’s guest needs, the space is expansive enough to host 280, while customizable for intimate events. In addition to the innovative indoor meeting space, the property also boasts a stunning courtyard that delivers more than 5,000 square feet of extraordinary special event space with the nation’s skyline as a backdrop.

Savory Delights

An oasis in the sky, Yara is a sexy indoor/outdoor venue that includes a chef-driven restaurant, buzzing bar + lively lounge that celebrate the cuisine and spirit(s) of Latin cultures… with a twist! The menu features fresh and bold flavors, embraces seafood, shareables and unexpected flavor profiles.

Adding to the fun, the mixology program features creative and classic craft cocktails, incorporating fresh squeezed juices and zero-proof tonics and botanicals – perfect for a group or date night.
