Market Highlights

Located in Washington, D.C.’s growth corridor

  • The Hyatt Place is the newest hotel in Washington, D.C.’s fastest-growing urban submarket. Both NoMa and the adjacent Union Market are witnessing a massive transformation of derelict buildings and empty surface lots into an acclaimed, mixed-use, urban community
  • NoMa has seen approximately $8 billion private investment since the early 2000s, which has yielded 13.7 million square feet of office space and nearly 6,400 residential units (1)
  • The submarket now has 60,000 daily workers and over 370,000 square feet of highly activated retail space (2)
  • Significant runway for growth still exists, with 3.5 million square feet of additional commercial space under construction and almost 14 million square feet planned (3)
  • Large number of GSA tenants located within the NoMa neighborhood include the Department of Justice, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Department of Education, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Internal Revenue Service, and Customs and Border Protection. Most notably, the Department of Justice has expanded in the neighborhood by taking almost 500,000 square feet at Three Constitution Square in 2017 and has fully pre-leased the 523,000 square foot Four Constitution Square building that is under construction (4)


  • We believe the Hotel benefits from its proximity to Washington, D.C.’s CBD via the NoMa / Gallaudet Metro Station (Red Line) and New York Avenue
  • The Metro’s Red Line offers guests direct access through the city’s office core in the CBD and to Bethesda and Silver Spring in Maryland
  • Union Station – the busiest station in the Metro system – is just one stop away from the Hyatt Place and provides access to Amtrak, MARC train, and the Virginia Railway Express lines
  • New York Avenue is a major urban thoroughfare that is a direct artery into the CBD, which also provides convenient access to I-395 and I-495, as well as both Washington Reagan National Airport and Baltimore-Washington International Airport


  • D.C. Metro Area historically outperforms the nation during broad economic contractions
  • The economic support provided by the federal government, contractors, and a rapidly growing base of tech employment have and will continue to help support the local economy and lodging demand in the near term
  • The District of Columbia, Virginia, and Maryland have seen far fewer unemployment claims than other major markets over the last eight weeks; the D.C. Metro Area has the lowest percentage of at-risk employment of any major city in the country
