DUMFRIES, Va. — The Marine Corps Heritage Foundation in March announced plans to build a 200- to 250-room hotel and conference center adjacent to the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Va.
A start date for the project has not been announced, but a developer is expected to be selected soon. The hotel will be on 10 acres within the Marine Corps Heritage Center complex and is expected to include a full-service restaurant and lounge, a pool and fitness center, a gift shop and a business center.
“The development of this facility is a tremendous step forward in completing our vision for the Marine Corps Heritage Center as a complex dedicated to the service of Marines,” said Lt. Gen. Ron Christmas, president and CEO of the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation. “The addition of a hotel and conference center will not only advance the mission of the Marine Corps University but also significantly benefit Marines and their families visiting the National Museum of the Marine Corps and Quantico Marine Corps Base, as well as all visitors to the historic attractions of Prince William County.”
“The hotel and conference center will satisfy the needs of the thousands of visitors to the museum and other area historical sites as well as providing a much-needed local venue for conferences and events,” said Maureen Caddigan, a Prince William County supervisor.
