Introducing Hotel Nell - Union Market

A Tribute to Our Heritage

Hotel Nell - Union Market, formerly Union Market Hotel, debuts its new name, paying homage to its former life as the Bolgiano Seed Company. Hotel Nell - Union Market honors the rich history of the Bolgiano family and its matriarch, Nell, who served as the company’s president for decades. What was once a thriving seed warehouse and store is now a 106-room boutique hotel, overlooking Union Market District's bustling culinary and cultural community.

  • An Unsung Leader

    While the whole family contributed to the success of the company, it was Nell Bolgiano who oversaw operations as the president of the enterprise and took the helm in navigating the company through prosperity. Nell broke barriers by proving that women can excel in positions of authority while simultaneously raising a close-knit family. Hotel Nell - Union Market continues the Bolgiano family legacy with lush greenery throughout the property, including the rooftop garden, which is populated with Virginia sweetspires, fameflowers, American yellowwoods, and more.

  • An Evolving Neighborhood Meets Time-Honored Heritage

    Union Market is a rapidly growing destination for restaurants, retail, and nightlife, and the newly renamed Hotel Nell - Union Market offers guests the opportunity to explore this vibrant neighborhood while also providing a connection to the area’s deep-rooted history. At Hotel Nell - Union Market, guests can enjoy the property’s elevated design and modern amenities while connecting to the rich legacy of the Bolgiano family, all within one of DC’s hottest neighborhoods.
