Photo from twitter user MWTICE

At long last the convention center hotel is getting started! Thanks to twitter user MWTICE for sending the picture above letting me know that they’ve saved the the jacket in the ground which, I think we’ve said, comes from an old dry cleaners formerly on this spot. The ground breaking of the hotel is taking place today at 11am at 9th Street and Massachusetts Avenue, NW. More photos on the project as construction progresses.
