MEININGER Hotels to Open Its First U.S. Property in Washington, D.C.
MEININGER Hotels has signed a long-term lease agreement with Altus Realty, the project owner and developer, for a hotel in Washington, D.C. Located at 35 New York Avenue NE in the NoMa neighborhood, the new hotel is scheduled to open at the end of 2020 and will feature 154 rooms and 616 beds.
The MEININGER Hotel Washington D.C., with a gross floor area of 74,500 square feet, will be a newly built 13 story property. Staying true to MEININGER's concept, the room categories will range from classic double rooms to private and shared multi-bed rooms. There will be ample public areas on two floors including a large reception, lounge and bar area on the ground floor and a breakfast area, guest kitchen and game zone on the second floor.
"We are very pleased to be able to realize our first project in the USA in the capital Washington, D.C. With an abundance of school and youth groups visiting, cultural offerings and as the political centre of the country, Washington D.C. is the ideal city to introduce MEININGER to the North American market. We are also proud to have Altus Realty, an experienced partner, by our side for this project," declared Hannes Spanring, CEO of MEININGER Hotels.
