The Hampton Inn/Homewood Suites dual-brand hotel at 8728 Colesville Rd. in downtown Silver Spring has permanently closed, according to signage posted at the building.
United Therapeutics has purchased the building to repurpose the property for offices, according to Dewey Steadman, head of UT’s investor relations. The building originally was built for offices before it was converted to hotel space.
“The furnishings in the hotel, we’re actually going to donate to community organizations,” Steadman said. “We just started the logistics around that process.”
Reservations have been transferred to the DoubleTree by Hilton Silver Spring DC North at 8777 Georgia Ave. The DoubleTree opened earlier this month after being acquired and rebranded by Plymouth, Mass.-based Linchris Hotel Corporation over the summer.
The Hampton Inn/Homewood Suites completed a year-long, complete renovation earlier this year. Los Angeles-based Level 3 Design Group was the interior design firm for the project.
