Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport is requesting proposals from qualified firms for the design, development, financing, construction, and operation of an airport hotel. BWI Marshall is working to establish a convenient, full-service hotel that offers direct access to the Airport terminal.
“We want to provide a true on-airport, high-quality hotel for the benefit of our customers,” said Paul J. Wiedefeld, Chief Executive Officer for BWI Marshall Airport. “A full-service hotel with efficient access to the terminal would offer an important service for travelers.”
Major international airports in the United States and across the globe provide hotel facilities with easy terminal access. BWI Marshall is seeking a nationally-branded or independent first-class hotel that would connect to the terminal building. The hotel would reflect the Airport’s role as a gateway to the Baltimore-Washington region. It is projected that the hotel would offer between 200 and 250 guest rooms. The facility would include meeting spaces, local food and beverage offerings, an upscale restaurant, and other customer amenities. The hotel site is located adjacent to the BWI Marshall Airport Hourly Garage, and provides approximately 2.5 acres of land for development of the hotel facility.
A new BWI Marshall Airport hotel would replace the nearby Four Points by Sheraton BWI Airport hotel. Formerly located adjacent to the BWI Marshall Airport Daily Garage, the Four Points was a 201-room hotel that closed in late 2013.
The procurement schedule and other detailed information for interested firms are available in the Request for Proposals document, MAA-RFP-15-001. Information is also available on the website www.newBWIairporthotel.com.
