Property Acquisition

Originally built in 1981, the Hotel experienced challenges in performance due to a lack of capital and inconsistent management from prior ownership. AWRE purchased the property in July 2018 with plans to commence a $15.0 million renovation that will address every facet of the building including; guest rooms, public spaces, the exterior fac╠žade, and building systems. As part of the Hotel renovation, the Property will be reflagged as a 299-key Doubletree by Hilton. Project is anticipated to be complete by Q1 2020,

Following the conversion to the Doubletree by Hilton brand, the Hotel will represent the area’s most recently upgraded lodging product, appealing strongly to both corporate and leisure travelers. Located off of Interstate 270, a four-way interchange, the Hotel benefits from prime visibility and immediate proximity to 2.2 million square feet of office space, including company headquarters and research facilities, predominantly in the Life Sciences, IT, and Communications sectors. Among many prominent corporations nearby includes the National Institute of Standards and Technology directly next to the Hotel, and over 100 bio-tech companies that reside in Gaithersburg and Rockville such as AstraZeneca, Qiagen Sciences, and Leido. Additionally, there are several new, major local developments underway in Montgomery County with a focus on transit-oriented, mixed-use communities.

schedule for completion April 2020.
