Over the past 35 years, the hospitality ventures management group at TBC Hotels has owned, developed, and operated over 2,000 hotel rooms in the United States. The design and construction team at TBC Hotels offers unique, entrepreneurial expertise, combined with a personalized approach to design and development and property management.
Casting a wider net, TBC Hotels' development expertise includes renovation, re-branding and repositioning and ground up projects that also touch residential and commercial projects. A perfect illustration of the diverse portfolio of work offered by TBC Hotels and The Bernstein Companies is the current Marriott International Headquarters and Flagship Hotel project that includes 785,000 sq. ft. of office space, along with a 244-key Marriott hotel.
New development and repositioning services include feasibility, architecture and design management, FF&E purchasing, brand relations, project management, site assessment, planning, cost analysis, budget development and analysis, scheduled development, change management, quality assurance, pre-opening, and project close-out/punch list. TBC Hotels manages all transitions, standards, and projects for owners and investors.
With a focus on lifestyle properties, TBC Hotels’ portfolio conveys its unique and creative spirit while remaining grounded in the traditions of The Bernstein Companies’ legacy.
TBC Hotels acquired the DoubleTree by Hilton Bethesda in 2016. With 270 rooms and over 15,000 square feet of function space, renovation and rebranding was top priority 2018-2019. The restaurant, grab and go coffee bar and hotel bar were also renovated along with other public spaces.
In collaboration with a local DC Dirm at its side, TBC Hotels took the property standing at 1600 Rhode Island Avenue NW from one brand to another with a substantial redevelopment. Back in 1996 the building was renovated from it’s original use as the headquarters for the National Rifle Association. There was talk of an office building or making use of the space as an embassy, but ultimately it became a hotel.
In 2015 and in partnership with a local firm, the Aloft Raleigh was built from the ground up and sits adjacent to the iconic NC State Memorial Bell Tower, in the heart of Raleigh. Since then the hotel has been awarded with the Sir Walter Raleigh Award for Community Appearance in recognition of outstanding new contributions to the character, environment, and appearance of the City of Raleigh.
In 2017, the idea was brought to the table that TBC Hotels, would redevelop their plot of land between Wisconsin Ave and Woodmont Ave. At that time the Bethesda Court Hotel, accompanied by additional mixed-use space occupied this piece of real estate.
