Last September, the University of Maryland, the City of College Park, Prince George’s County and the State of Maryland celebrated the grand opening of an upscale four star hotel on Baltimore Avenue, just across from the University’s main gate in College Park.
Although many new additions have joined the Route 1 Corridor over the last decade, the Hotel at UMD – a 115 million dollar luxury hotel – has been one of the most exciting additions yet. With its sleek modern interior design and hip ambiance, The Hotel has caught the attention of many over the past few months.
Occupying three acres with 11 floors, ample conference space, and 300 hotel rooms, the Hotel has had excellent reviews across the board. Upon entering the hotel, customers first notice the extremely spacious and modern lobby. It is cool and chic – displaying two large escalators in the center of the lobby, and a vibrant chandelier piece framing its entirety. It also offers one of the best views of College Park from its rooftop and upper floors.
The Hotel offers top of the line amenities. The restaurants it features include Old Maryland Grill, Kapnos Taverna, Potomac Pizza, and Bagels N’ Grinds – all of which have outdoor seating. Inside there is a high-end spa – The Red Door Spa, a full-service Hotel restaurant and bar, indoor swimming pool, fitness center, parking garage and more. The parking garage offers free 2-hour parking with validation at one of these amenities within the Hotel.
So whether you’re booking a stay to visit someone in the community or on campus, traveling in the DC-area or simply looking for a massage or a delicious meal, you’re most definitely covered!
