Project Features New Hyattsville Restaurant, Ballroom, Guest Rooms and Marriott Hotels Greatroom

HYATTSVILLE, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 01/15/14 -- Following more than a year of renovation, College Park Marriott Hotel and Conference Center has unveiled a new name to highlight the metamorphosis of its function space, guest rooms and restaurant and reinvented Marriott Hotels Greatroom and business center.

Formerly known as the Marriott Inn and Conference Center University of Maryland University College, the streamlined name matches the hotel's new, flexible design and chic décor developed by architectural firm HKS of Dallas to meet the needs of the modern guest's mobile, social lifestyle.

"College Park Marriott Hotel and Conference Center's new name and renovated spaces reflect the hotel's commitment to provide an exemplary guest experience and dedication to serving the College Park community," says Mike McCarthy, general manager, College Park Marriott.

Stylish changes to meeting and event space include the new Potomac Ballroom featuring 6,700 square feet with 2,000 square feet of private pre-function space and windows overlooking a Georgian-inspired garden. The newly decorated Chesapeake Ballroom offers 8,200 square feet and custom metal-beaded chandeliers as a backdrop for larger meetings and gala celebrations. The hotel also introduced a new 250-seat conference dining room and 18 redecorated meeting rooms, furthering its reputation as one of Maryland's leading meeting and event venues.

The multi-faceted renovation features The Common, a 120-seat pub-inspired restaurant offering contemporary American cuisine and libations sourced from local farms and artisans. The new College Park restaurant and pub boasts sophisticated style and delicious substance that invites guests to mix work and play in comfort.

The project, which began in August 2012, also features 111 renovated guest rooms with 25 new executive studios offering opaque glass-walled bathrooms, built-in custom storage and work areas, iHome keyboard docking stations and art inspired by the collections of the hotel's owner, the University of Maryland University College. Free WiFi is available in public spaces and all 237 of the hotel's College Park guest rooms.

Additional enhancements include:

  • A modern fitness center featuring Matrix® cardio machines that offer cinema-quality virtual workouts in stunning landscapes from around the world
  • New apps such as Mobile Check-In for an effortless arrival; Red Coat Direct, a pocket concierge for event planners; and Workspace On Demand, an easy way to book free and paid meeting spaces

The College Park Marriott Hotel and Conference Center is located at 3501 University Boulevard East in Hyattsville, Md., on the University College campus, adjacent to UMD and convenient to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's White Oak campus and metro Washington, D.C.
