Frederick is where it all started.

The Plamondon family has called Frederick home since 1980. It’s where their father started the business and where the company’s headquarters remains today. Frederick is a cultural hub for art, entertainment, dining and shopping, and is centrally located near Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Gettysburg, making it an ideal tourist destination.

Plamondon Hospitality Partners opened Maryland’s first Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott in Frederick in 1996. Shortly after, The Courtyard by Marriott and the Residence Inn by Marriott followed in 1999 and 2002, respectively. Finally, the Silver LEED certified TownePlace Suites by Marriott opened in Frederick in 2012. All four hotels are within walking distance of one another, allowing customers to choose the brand that best fits their individual travel needs. The proximity also allows Plamondon Hospitality Partners to cross-train its associates in four different brands, leading to more exposure to the Marriott portfolio. These hotels are located off major highways and are close to three major airports, making them easily accessible for travelers.
