WhyHotel guests can escape the concrete jungle by visiting the tranquil courtyard or sweat it out in the multi-level fitness center.

“This partnership really excites us because we get to work with a fast-growing company that was started right here in DC. With its headquarters just around the corner from the project, WhyHotel understands the Union Market neighborhood and experience in a way that truly gives guests a feel for the core of our city and mirrors the resident experience that we provide,” said Josh Etter, Vice President of Development at Foulger-Pratt. “Whether here for work or pleasure, our Press House project provides everything the city has to offer at your fingertips. And when guests are ready to unwind at the end of the day, Press House provides all the conveniences of home. Together with WhyHotel, we’re looking forward to welcoming guests to the property and showing them the very best of what Press House and the city has to offer.”
