Hotel Overview

When guests stay at this charming Frederick hotel, that is just minutes from the historic downtown area, the options are limitless.

Show More / Less

Comfortable accommodations and convenient access to the most popular attractions in central Maryland, such as Fort Detrick, are guaranteed. Enjoy 116 rooms and suites with cable satellite TV, free Wi-Fi and laundry services. A free hot breakfast is offered each morning, the perfect start to a day of lounging by the outdoor seasonal pool, taking care of business in the meeting facilities, or keeping up with your regimen at the fitness center.

Proximity to the Frederick Fairgrounds and B&O Railroad Museum® really make this Frederick hotel stand out. Head to the Gettysburg Battlefield or one of the many local wine festivals. The Celtic Festival is always a great time while the Sheep and Wool Festival is brimming with charm. Fredericks' In the Streets and the Great Frederick Fair can’t be missed, while business travelers with Medimmune and Bechtel are close to HQ. From a meeting at Lockheed Martin to a lecture at Hood College, traveling is easy.

Frederick, Maryland hotels feature a convenient location off three major highways including Routes 70, 270 and 15. However, this property is also near the Frederick Airport with a parking lot that can accommodate all sizes of trucks and buses. As the closest hotel to historic downtown Frederick, history buffs favor this property. All rooms have refrigerators and microwaves for longer stays, such as those who want to see all the Civil War battlefields along one of Maryland's scenic byway.

Golf groups are accommodated with special rates, while access to the Maryland SoccerPlex & Discovery Sports Center is a breeze. Plus, when you are within walking distance to shopping and restaurants or would rather take advantage of the outdoor picnic and grilling area, a Frederick hotel stay feels more like staying with family.
