Hilton heads into Virginia mixed use development

by | 25 Oct 2022 | Hotel Projects, Projects

Hilton Worldwide has signed an agreement with developer Dittmar Company for a full-service hotel in Arlington, Virginia, USA, near the country’s capital, Washington DC.

Hilton at The Key is a 36-storey, 331-room property which will be part of multi use development, The Key, a project that includes a destination restaurant, street-level retail, and 517 luxury apartments.

Modern meeting spaces

Once completed, the hotel will feature approximately 28,000 sq ft of flexible and modern meeting spaces, including an event space on the 36th floor with 360-degree views of the Washington, DC, skyline, the Potomac River and Arlington, Virginia.

The site was previously home to a 307-room full-service hotel for more than 50 years, and was demolished to make way for the new 1.3-million-sq-ft development.

Destination facility

Greg Raines, an executive at Dittmar Company, said: “Dittmar Company is proud to partner with Hilton as we bring a true destination meeting and event facility to Arlington, Virginia, and the surrounding DMV area.

“This site has been part of the Dittmar Company portfolio of Northern Virginia assets for more than 50 years. Dittmar Company and RentDittmar.com continue to establish a reputation for quality construction and dedicated management. This exciting development of The Key is another part of that progression, and we are thrilled to have Hilton as a part of the project and the Dittmar team.”

Exciting addition

Leonard Gooz, global brand head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, commented: “For more than a century, Hilton Hotels & Resorts has set the benchmark for hospitality around the world. The signing of Hilton at The Key, Arlington-Rosslyn heralds an exciting addition to the global footprint of our flagship brand right in our own backyard.

“This new development will be located in the most prime location of the area and will be a highly desired destination for leisure and business travellers visiting northern Virginia and the Washington DC metro area.”

Other Hilton projects underway in Virginia include The Founders Inn and Spa, Tapestry Collection by Hilton in Virginia Beach, Home 2 Suites by Hilton Bealeton and Embassy Suites by Hilton Stonebridge in Richmond.
