LARGO, MD—Frontier Development & Hospitality Group, LLC, in partnership with Capstone Development, has acquired the 184-room Radisson Largo, MD, with plans to convert it to the DoubleTree by Hilton Largo/Washington D.C. by May 1.
The $19-million acquisition and transformation of the hotel is being managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts.
“Largo, Maryland has emerged into a key sub-market of the national capital region, and we believe this is an ideal time to add a world-class brand to Prince Georges County,” stated Evens Charles, president/CEO of Frontier. “With key government agencies, major corporations as well as tremendous residential and commercial growth, the area truly needs an upscale hotel. There has been significant business-oriented growth in the market, and that is why we decided to invest our capital here.”
“We are committed to transforming this investment into a best-in-class, business-oriented hotel,” said Norman Jenkins, president of Capstone Development. “We are working shoulder-to-shoulder with our architects, engineers and Hilton Worldwide to ensure that we not only meet, but exceed, the expectations of our guests.”
All guestrooms will be redesigned and the hotel’s public space, meeting rooms and food/beverage zones will be reinvented. The hotel’s design will feature a new exterior social zone that will be anchored by a fire pit and the property will have a new fitness center and indoor pool.
The hotel will be open throughout the transformation.
