I recently stayed at the TownePlace Suites in Frederick for four weeks. Overall, I had a very pleasant stay. Everything in the hotel is brand new. My bed was amazing!! It was my favorite part of the room. The pillows, blankets, and mattress were so comfortable, I slept like a baby every single night. I loved the bed table that sits on top of the ottoman. I used it to work on my computer at night, or watch movies off my laptop.
The desk had ample storage and plenty of lighting and outlets to work. I was very surprised by the amount of storage in the room. The enormous closet provided more than enough room to store shoes, boots, clothes, suitcases, and the like. The night stands are small dressers with three full drawers each, and the TV cabinet provides additional storage space. There is also plenty of storage space in the desk with book shelves, cabinets, and file drawers. I loved having places to put away all my things so the room never felt cluttered. Another feature I liked about the design of the room is the hide away table under the desk. It rolls out and can either double as an L shaped desk, or a dining table. Whomever designed these rooms was an efficiency expert. That said, they FORGOT THE MIRROR. There is no full length mirror in the room. That was a problem for someone staying for a full month.
The laundry room has all brand new tumble washing machines making laundry day a breeze. They even had a TV and extra soap in there in case you didn't have any.
Management was very friendly, however I was a bit disappointed in the maid service. They were pretty stingy about leaving extra coffee, dish soap, bath supplies, etc. It would have made things much easier if they left it because I really only wanted my room cleaned on Wednesdays, which was one of the two designated "deep clean" days. Management always obliged me when I went downstairs to get stuff, but I would have rather just had extra garbage bags and such in the room. Maybe they can improve on that a little bit. Also, the maids were kind of slack in their efforts. For example, no roll of toilet paper, kleenex, and an empty box of soap one day (and I left them a tip). So I'm not sure what it takes to motivate them to be attentive to details if the tip wasn't enough.
The public area downstairs was very nice. I used the gas grill one night to cook some meat for the week. The single skillet/burner in my kitchen wasn't really doing the job. I would also recommend the hotel provide a small omelet pan that fits the burner size. The large skillet is handy to have, but I found that it didn't really fit the burner so it made it difficult to use. The fridge was perfect for me - temperature was regulated properly and I didn't accidentally freeze my fresh veggies or have anything go sour. (things we take for granted!).
The fitness center was nice - much better than other hotels in the area - but then again, it's new.
Overall I had a great stay there and would return. The location was great - across the street from major shopping, dining, major highways, and a CrossFit gym.
