Hotel provides functional space for living and working, helping guests keep their routine and settle into the neighborhood

Online PR News – 03-April-2015 – Wareham, Massachusetts – The 85-suite TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Wareham, Massachusetts is scheduled to open tomorrow, April 3, 2015. Located at 50 Rosebrook Place, the TownePlace Suites Wareham Buzzards Bay will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned and managed by Lafrance Hospitality Company of Westport, Massachusetts.

“We are pleased to introduce the TownePlace Suites brand to the Wareham area,” said Loren Nalewanski, vice president and global brand manager, TownePlace Suites. “Providing an upscale residential atmosphere, this TownePlace Suites hotel offers an appealing alternative to more standard hotel rooms designed for shorter stays.”

The hotel’s friendly “hello” signage welcomes guests to the check-in area. Designed to feel like a community coffeehouse, the warm and inviting lobby includes a variety of seating options designed to meet different needs – whether guests want to work quietly on their own or socialize as a group. The lobby also features a floor-to-ceiling TowneMap® that helps guests settle into the local area by featuring great places to eat, popular night spots, recreation areas, shopping and other services, such as dry cleaners and local car wash outlets.

Guests can enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast every morning in the breakfast room, as well as 24-hour On Us® coffee service. For those who want a quick snack, guests can also select food and beverage items from the 24-hour In a Pinch® market.

Ideal for travelers who need accommodations for longer stays, this property offers king and double queen studio suites where guests can work and relax on their terms. Brightly colored modern suites feature fully equipped kitchens with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, a large flat screen television, a fun yet sophisticated sofa and task chair, as well as luxurious new bedding. All 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.

Other hotel amenities include an indoor saline mineral swimming pool, an exercise room open 24 hours per day, complimentary wireless Internet throughout the hotel and on-site business services, including meeting rooms, copying, faxing and printing. The TownePlace Suites Wareham Buzzards Bay is pet-friendly (fees may apply) and also provides laundry facilities for guests’ convenience.

The hotel also features the adjoining Rosebrook Event Center, a 4,500 square foot function facility with capacity to accommodate up to 400 people for weddings, corporate events, meetings, social parties, and more. With sweeping views of picturesque cranberry bogs, the Rosebrook Event Center will be the perfect choice for events and weddings in the area.

The hotel and event center were developed through a land lease with the A.D. Makepeace Company, which also plans restaurants, retail, and apartments at the site. The hotel is located on Route 28 at the intersection of I-495 and I-195 and is the landmark building for the development.

"This will be a real benefit for the town of Wareham, which currently has no full-service hotel facilities and few accommodations for functions," said Michael P. Hogan, president and CEO of the A.D. Makepeace Company. "I believe this will be a true asset to the region's tourism industry as well as an attraction for other businesses. Furthermore, having an experienced regional operator like the Lafrance Hospitality Company undertaking this project assures it will be successful.
