The Mason Inn consists of a 25,000-square-foot technologically advanced conference area, integrated with a 149-room hotel. The complex includes a restaurant, lounge, ballroom and 11 meeting rooms. The facility has achieved GOLD Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, making it the first hotel and conference facility in the Commonwealth of Virginia to do so, and is operated to the standards of the International Association of Conference Centers. The Mason Inn is located on the 677-acre main campus of George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. 

The Mason Inn raises the profile of this fast-growing university by providing a high-quality venue for university events, academic conferences and other activities.

Concord Eastridge’s role as master developer included the design and construction oversight, operator selection and development management of this 135,000 square foot project. The development team was formed under University Hotel Partners, LLC which is a joint venture between Concord Eastridge, Inc. and Balfour Beatty Construction.

Construction began in the fall of 2008 and the hotel and conference center opened July 2010, on schedule and under budget.
