The Hilton Garden Inn is located at the intersection of M and 22nd Streets, NW in the West End neighborhood of the District of Columbia. The 229-room hotel was developed as a Planned Unit Development by Perseus Realty. As part of the development, relief was sought from the parking requirements.
Wells + Associates' traffic consultants were retained to evaluate the transportation and parking impacts of the project. We evaluated parking demands at three similar hotels in the District. Based on this evaluation, W+A determined that although the proposed parking supply was below the minimum required by code, it would adequately accommodate the needs of the hotel.
As part of the study, W+A also prepared a loading management plan and a transportation management plan for Hilton Garden Inn West End.
W+A also worked with the project team and the District Department of Transportation to design a lay-by lane that would serve the needs of the hotel and minimize impacts to 22nd Street.
