Frederick, Maryland – October 19, 2012 – The 120-suite TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Frederick, Maryland is scheduled to open later this month. Located at 5050 Westview Drive, the TownePlace Suites Frederick will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by Westview Hospitality Associates, LLC and managed by Plamondon Hospitality Partners.
Located in the Westview Corporate Park and minutes from historic downtown Frederick, the TownePlace Suites Frederick offers its guests convenient access to the National Museum of Civil War Medicine, Fort Detrick and Harry Grove Stadium – home of Frederick Keys baseball, an affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles. Rates vary depending on length of stay.
“We are pleased to introduce TownePlace Suites hotels in the Frederick area,” said Loren Nalewanski, vice president and global brand manager, TownePlace Suites. “Providing an upscale residential atmosphere, this TownePlace Suites hotel offers an appealing alternative to more standard hotel rooms designed for shorter stays.”
The TownePlace Suites Frederick’s warm lobby and friendly “hello” signage welcomes guests to the check-in area. Guests and staff interact using a floor-to-ceiling TowneMap® that helps guests settle into the local area by featuring great places to eat, popular night spots, recreation areas, shopping and services, such as dry cleaners and local car wash outlets.
Guests can enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast every morning in the lobby area, as well as 24-hour On Us® coffee service. For those who want a quick snack, guests can also select food and beverage items from the 24-hour In a Pinch® market.
Ideal for travelers who need accommodations for longer stays, this property offers studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites with fully equipped kitchens, as well as separate living/working and sleeping areas. Guests can work and relax on their terms in brightly-colored modern suites that feature full kitchens with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, adjustable work spaces with built-in shelves and lighting, a large flat screen television, as well as luxurious new bedding. Each room also features the Home OfficeTM Suite, designed to provide guests with plenty of storage and flexible space to spread out and make it their own.
The hotel is expected to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification for its contributions in making the environment a healthier place by reducing waste and conserving energy and water. It is the second TownePlace Suites to receive this level of certification and will be achieving LEED certification via Marriott’s LEED Volume program using the pre-certified prototype for the brand.
