More hotels coming to Convention Center area

The Marriott Marquis being build beside the convention center is set to be the second-largest hotel in the District.   But it's still not enough.  The city wants 1,600 hotel rooms surrounding the convention center.

Therefore, Marriott has plans to build two more hotels next to the Marriott Marquis, reports DC Mud.  They will build a Marriott Residence Inn and a Courtyard by Marriott, which cater to different customers and generally are priced at a different level.

The Marriott Marquis will have 1,175 rooms, and the other two hotels are expected to be smaller.

That adds to a number of other Marriott properties in the area, including the Courtyard by Marriott at 9th and F, the Renaissance by Marriott at 9th and Eye, the Marriott Metro Center, and the J.W. Marriott.

The Marriott Marquis is expected to open in 2014, and the other hotels will open later.
