The sculpture-like site of hospitality brand Pendry Hotels will bring two dining concepts, a cocktail lounge, a pool deck and more to the District’s waterfront.
In just a few years, Washington, DC’s latest hub for fine dining, entertainment and waterfront views will become more robust with the addition of luxury hotel Pendry Washington D.C. – The Wharf.
The boutique hospitality brand has locations in San Diego, Baltimore and New York, with four other projects set for completion by 2022, including the 140,000-square-foot hotel in the District. According to co-founder and creative director of Pendry, Michael Fuerstman, Washington seemed like “the perfect fit to make a statement.”

Inspired by the light, space and proximity to the water, the new building is meant to attract both visitors from across the world through its 131 guest rooms, including 35 suites, as well as locals with more than 5,000 square feet of meeting and event space available inside, outside and on the roof deck.
Other features of the site include a spa and fitness center, a rooftop lounge, bar and pool, two culinary concepts that are still being finalized and an indoor cocktail parlor.
“People will stay at Pendry at The Wharf because it will be an experience at every turn,” says Fuerstman.
The District Wharf is currently in its second phase of construction, set to be fully complete in 2022, bringing more hotels such as Pendry, apartment buildings, retail and restaurants to the neighborhood in a total of 1.25 million-square-feet of space.
While an exact date of completion for Pendry has yet to be announced, construction began this summer and we will update Northern Virginia and Washington residents closer to the start of 2022.
