And, as the lodging chain's 4,000th property, this striking Penn Quarter hotel is a bold testament to the determination and perseverance of Marriott International Inc. and the Marriott family.

The new landmark Washington, D.C. hotel with its 1,175 rooms and 49 suites, owned by Quadrangle Development and its partner Capstone, is operated by Marriott International Inc., a leading lodging company based in Bethesda, MD.

"We have been fortunate to call this town our home," said J.W. Marriott, Jr., executive chairman. "Washington is one of the world's greatest cities and we are excited to host visitors and groups from across the globe at our newest hotel to fly the Marriott Hotels flag. The Marriott Marquis Washington, D.C. also has created more than 500 new jobs, with 63 percent coming from the District."

Travelers are welcomed to take advantage of discounted rates with the hotel's Stay More and Save deal, which offers up to 20 percent off standard rates through Sept. 1, 2014, to see for themselves the beauty of this magnificent lodging which includes total renovation of the historic Samuel Gompers AFL-CIO building and an impressive glass atrium ceiling.

Encompassing nearly an entire city block at 901 Massachusetts Ave., NW and connected to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, the new Washington, D.C. lodging has embraced many green concepts and is one of the largest LEED Silver certified hotel properties in the world. Boasting innovative designs and leading technology, guests can enjoy a clear wireless signal throughout the hotel's 15 stories and utilize an array of Marriott's high-tech mobile applications designed to evolve travel through every aspect of the guest's stay. Utilizing all of Marriott's latest technologies, the new hotel allows mobile and global travelers to blend work and play with industry-leading innovations, including the Greatroom Lobby, Future of Meetings and Mobile Guest Services that elevate style, design and technology.

As base hotel for the Washington Convention Center, the new hotel's location near Union Station and popular destinations along with its 105,000 square feet of state-of-the-art event space brings a new dimension to meetings in Washington, D.C and strengthens its standing as a prime convention destination.
