Wardman Hotel Owner LLC (“Wardman” or “Debtor”) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on January 11, 2021, ending its management contract with Marriott International. The Chapter 11 petition was filed in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.

The Wardman Park, one of the largest hotels in Washington, D.C. with 1,152 rooms, opened in 1918, during the Spanish Flu pandemic.

According to the Debtor’s chapter 11 petition, Wardman reports $100 to $500 million in both assets and liabilities.

Pursuant to the Debtor’s First Day Declaration, Wardman intends to conduct a sale of substantially all of its assets and wind down its remaining operations.
