Downtown Hotel & Conference Center

In 2009, a group of community partners identified a critical need for a downtown hotel and conference center. A feasibility study was initiated, showing strong demand for this new hotel product in the Frederick market as well as induced demand by such a facility for additional hotel rooms at other hotel locations.

On February 19, 2014, The City of Frederick Purchasing Department issued RFP 14-J on behalf of the Downtown Frederick Hotel Advisory Committee for the express purpose of accepting proposals for the development of a privately owned and operated full-service hotel and conference center in historic Downtown Frederick.  Two qualified proposals were received by the May 9, 2014 deadline.  The Selection Committee entertained presentations from both teams and proceeded to score each proposal in accordance with the Selection Criteria established in the RFP. That scoring resulted in the unanimous recommendation of award by the Committee to one of the development teams, Plamondon Hospitality Partners, LLC.

In December 2014, the chosen developer, Plamondon Hospitality Partners, LLC, released artist renderings of the proposed Hotel & Conference Center:
