370 Room Hotel Opening at CityCenter

A parking lot currently occupies the new hotel site.
Phase II of the 10-acre CityCenter project will kick off next year with construction of a new hotel. Hilton will operate the 370 room hotel under its Conrad Hotel & Resorts brand. The hotel will be the first for CityCenter, which already boasts offices, condominiums, apartments, retail and restaurants. There is also an open air plaza and a public/private park. The hotel will cover about half of the block bound by New York Ave NW, 9th Street, I (Eye) Street, and 10th Street. 

Plans call for 70,000 square feet of retail to accompany the hotel, adding to the 188,000 sq ft of existing retail. The Conrad timeline includes a mid-2015 start to construction, retail openings in fall 2017, and hotel grand opening in early 2018.
