Like other construction projects in the area, Virginia’s first JW Marriott is facing some delays.

The 26-story hotel, which plans to open at Comstock’s Reston Station, has been delayed by a year, according to a spokesperson for the Reston-based development company.

“Construction was delayed on this for a year due to the pandemic,” the spokesperson said, adding that work is currently underway on the site.

The hotel, which will be located at the intersection of Reston Station Boulevard and Wiehle Avenue, had planned to open in 2024 and will cost roughly $250 million to complete.

JW Marriott launched in 1984 as Marriott International’s luxury brand. There are more than 100 JW Marriott hotels in 36 countries.

Once completed, the building would complement the design of the Helmut Jahn office tower across the street.

Overall, the development is expected to have around 400 hotel units. The JW Marriott will include 250 guest rooms, 90 residents, roughly 15,000 square feet of meeting space, two restaurants and other amenities.

Marriott’s Extended Stay hotel is also planned for the site. CRS Hotel LC, a company managed by Comstock, finalized a franchise agreement in February 2021.

The project is expected to delivery in late 2024.
