LARGO MD (NOVEMBER 6, 2017) — Frontier Development & Hospitality Group is bringing an award-winning extended stay hotel brand to the DC region. Homewood Suites by Hilton broke ground today — Monday, November 6 — at 9103 Basil Court in Largo, MD, a dynamic market just minutes away from the nation's capital.
"We're delighted to partner with Hilton to bring the first Homewood Suites to Prince George's County," says Evens Charles, President/CEO of Frontier Development. "This Homewood Suites is designed to be the extended stay hotel of choice for business and leisure travelers who want upscale accommodations – and all the comforts of home – at a value-driven price."
With 116 suites and 2,700 square feet of flexible meeting space, Homewood Suites by Hilton Largo/Washington DC is slated for completion in late 2018. The new hotel will be owned by Frontier and managed by OTO Development, a Spartanburg SC-based Johnson Management company.
Frontier already has a presence in Largo — the DoubleTree by Hilton Largo/Washington DC, adjacent to the site of the new Homewood Suites — and Charles says his company is investing further based on the market's significant business-oriented growth.
"Since the day we indicated that we wanted to build 'Downtown Largo' and make it a hub for healthcare, the business community has responded by bringing new housing, restaurants, retail and hotels like this exciting new Homewood Suites to the area," says County Executive Rushern L. Baker III, noting that Prince George's County provided $1.5 million in Economic Development Incentive (EDI) Funds toward the $20-million extended stay project, which is expected to create 41 new hospitality jobs.
"I want to thank Frontier Development & Hospitality Group for bringing Homewood Suites to Prince George's County — a great addition to Largo's current stock of hotels," Baker adds. "These are amazing times and it's exciting to watch Largo transform into the downtown area we envision."
Charles says he expects DoubleTree and Homewood to thrive side by side based on demand generators including government agencies, major corporations, commercial projects and, of course the new Regional Medical Center just a mile away. "Our new Homewood Suites brings a contemporary, upscale extended stay lodging option to Largo, providing travelers tremendous value with a variety of amenities," he says.
All suites at Homewood feature separated living and sleeping areas along with fully-equipped kitchens. Guests are provided all the essentials for a comfortable, convenient stay including free WiFi, a fresh hot breakfast every day, a fun evening social Monday through Thursday, even a grocery shopping service. There's also a recreational basketball court and outdoor patio with grill station and fire pit.
