Hilton hotel planned next to Gannett headquarters in Tysons Corner

MRP Realty plans to build a hotel under two Hilton brands, Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites, next to the Gannett headquarters building on Jones Branch Drive in Tysons Corner, according to two sources involved in the project.

The hotel could have as many as 300 rooms as well as conference space, and will be next door to a new office building that MRP is building in conjunction with LMI Government Consulting, a private, nonprofit contractor that will also occupy 150,000 square feet in the building.

The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. MRP executive Robert J. Murphy declined to make a statement.

Tysons Corner already has 14 hotels with nearly 3,900 rooms, according to the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority, which markets Tysons as having “the largest concentration of hotels in the county.”

But as an urbanized Tysons Corner begins to take shape, hotel operators have begun to sign deals to open new hotels to coincide with the arrival of the Silver Line, which is expected to begin running to four Tysons stations in late 2013.

Woodbine Development Corp., along with Macerich, is building a 310-room Grand Hyatt hotel as part of a $500 million mixed-use project by the Tysons Corner Metro that should be complete by 2014. Capital One has included a small hotel in its planned expansion of its headquarters campus near the McLean station.
