Just a follow up to last weeks post – here are a few more details on the Marriott downtown Bethesda HQ move – taken from Marriott directly via this link. What do you think? Good move for the Bethesda Urban downtown area?

What will be built? When will it open?
The new $600 million Marriott headquarters envisions a state-of-the-art campus with an approximately 700,000-square-foot office building, a 230+ room Marriott hotel and a pedestrian plaza connecting the two buildings that will also be open as a public connection between Wisconsin and Woodmont avenues. Under current plans, the office building and hotel would open in 2022.

It will be a flagship Marriott hotel with over 8,000 square-feet of flexible meeting and ballroom space for meetings, conferences, banquets and events. The hotel will also offer exceptional dining and social amenities including a ground-floor restaurant offering outdoor dining on the pedestrian plaza, a specialty coffee shop and a seasonal rooftop dining terrace.
