ABERDEEN, Md. and MCLEAN, Va. - Home2 Suites by Hilton, Hilton Worldwide's award-winning mid-tier, all-suite hotel brand designed for modern business travelers and extended stay guests, today announced the opening of its 29th hotel, Home2 Suites by Hilton Baltimore/Aberdeen. This marks the second Silver Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified hotel in the brand's portfolio. 

"We are excited to unveil our third property in the greater Baltimore area," said Bill Duncan, global head, Home2 Suites by Hilton. "This market has proven to be a great fit for our Home2 Suites brand and we felt like Aberdeen was a perfect location for our brand. We are also thrilled to open our second Silver LEED certified hotel in Maryland, as sustainability is a key focus for the Home2 brand."

The five-story, 107-suite hotel is located at 20 Newton Road, just minutes from the Aberdeen Proving Grounds Base and a short distance from the Higher Education Center at the Heat Center and the Battelle Eastern Science and Technology Center. Home2 Suites by Hilton Baltimore/Aberdeen gives easy access to many retail, dining and leisure opportunities, including several golf courses. Nearby attractions including Ripken Stadium, Susquehanna State Park and historic Havre de Grace are all easily accessible from the property.

Home2 Suites Baltimore/Aberdeen is LEED certified and a Maryland Green Travel Partner. Owned by Aberdeen Hotels Partners, LLC., and managed by Cherry Cove Hospitality, the hotel is committed to environmental practices including waste reduction and energy efficiency.  The hotel received the second level of LEED accreditation, due in part to the standard Home2 appointments that the brand incorporates to promote sustainability throughout all properties.  These include low-flow showers and faucets, CFL light bulbs, dual-flush toilets, recycled flooring and carpet, saline pools, Energy Star appliances, and other materials and surfaces made from recycled products. Home2 hotels also use real dishes, glasses and mugs instead of disposable place settings and the landscaping features indigenous plants, which significantly minimizes water usage and irrigation needs.

Home2 Suites by Hilton Baltimore/Aberdeen also incorporated other features to achieve silver LEED accreditation:

  • An energy model projected to save 32 percent in annual energy costs
  • Storm water controls to absorb rainwater back into the ground, rather than running directly into the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem.

In addition, the hotel offers easy access to technology and inviting community spaces, as well as the trademark Home2 Suites amenities standard in all properties, such as the Oasis lobby area, the Home2 MKT for grab-and-go items, the Spin2 Cycle, a combined laundry and fitness area, and complimentary continental breakfast at the Inspired Table that includes a variety of morning favorites like a hot breakfast sandwich. The hotel also features an indoor saline pool and gas grills for guests' use. All Home2 Suites by Hilton properties are pet-friendly. 

Home2 Suites by Hilton Baltimore/Aberdeen participates in Hilton HHonors®, the only hotel rewards program that offers Points & Miles® and No Blackout Dates.
