Parkersburg, WV – June 27, 2017 – Get ready to be real and be you on long stays. Marriott International’s (NASDAQ: MAR) TownePlace Suites by Marriott Parkersburg, West Virginia is now open for business. On average, a TownePlace Suites opens every six days. Built for travelers looking for a simple and friendly place where they can settle-in, keep their routine, and easily connect to the Parkersburg area. The new TownePlace Suites Parkersburg located at 415 7th Street, continues to exemplify the brand's rapid growth. The new hotel will operate as a Marriott franchise, locally owned, and managed by Christy & Associates, Inc. of Marietta, Ohio. The project was financed by WesBanco of Wheeling, West Virginia.

“We are excited to introduce the TownePlace Suites brand to the Parkersburg area,” said Diane Mayer, vice president and global brand manager, TownePlace Suites. “At TownePlace Suites, we get it. We want to go above and beyond to do everything we can to make our guests feel comfortable. We encourage our guests to be real, and help them to do so by providing a seamless residential atmosphere with a friendly staff who genuinely care about our guests. That is what our brand is all about, and this property is a great example of that.”

The new hotel allows guests to keep their routine and settle into the vibrant city of Parkersburg. All service team members are thoroughly trained on local knowledge and look forward to connecting guests to the local area. Our floor-to-ceiling TowneMap® helps guests instantly acclimate themselves to Parkersburg by featuring great places to eat, play and live (explore). The TownePlace Suites Parkersburg features free parking in easy walking distance to everything downtown, with convenient access to Interstate 77, Corridor D/Route 50 and the Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Airport. The new hotel offers guests the very best Parkersburg business location, convenient to the U.S. Treasury Bureau of the Fiscal Service, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, WVU Medicine’s Camden Clark Medical Center, downtown banks, courts, funeral homes, and major industrials Chemours and Kraton.

Out of town guests may have no idea of the historic significance of the new hotel’s site, but locals know that the building is an adaptive reuse of the former Uptowner Inn, that operated as a hotel in Parkersburg from 1963 to 1987. The developers and their architects worked closely with the City of Parkersburg to adapt the structure to incorporate all elements of the latest TownePlace by Marriott design concept, whilst adding many new jobs for city residents.

Ideal for travelers who need accommodations for longer stays, this new property offers studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites with fully equipped kitchens. Guests can work and relax on their own terms in 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. Most rooms also feature the Home Office™ Suite, designed to provide guests with plenty of storage and flexible space to spread out and make it their own.

The TownePlace Suites Parkersburg allows guests to maintain a healthy lifestyle with an array of food options. While on property guests can create their own complimentary hot breakfast every morning in the lobby area, and can fire up their stay by grilling up dinner on our outdoor Weber grills. The 24-hour In a Pinch® market and On Us® coffee service offer guests the chance to get their snack and caffeine on whenever they feel the need. The full kitchen and refrigerator allow guests to cook their own food, or save their leftovers after eating at a local Parkersburg hotspot.

TownePlace Suites helps its guests stay organized on the road with the help of our partners the Container Store. While staying at the TownePlace Suites Parkersburg, travelers can unpack their suitcase into a custom elfa® closet. From drawers to shelves to smart hanging space, you'll find everything you need to make you feel right at home.
