Hotel news

Performance Capital Partners LLC has acquired a site for its upcoming dual-brand Marriott TownePlace Suites and Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites hotel complex set for the northwest quadrant of Market Street and Verrado Way in Buckeye.  

This new prototype hotel will have a contemporary look and feel with a warm and natural color scheme from the moment the guest walks through the front door. All suites will offer a premium entertainment package that will allow guests to stream their favorite shows, music and movies through their television using Hulu, Pandora and Netflix.   

The TownePlace Suites will feature in-suite kitchens, including full-sized refrigerators, microwave, cooktop and dishwasher. The hotel will be 100% nonsmoking and pet friendly.

The hotel complex will feature a bar serving alcoholic beverages and food; complimentary hot breakfast providing hundreds of combination options; outdoor pool and spa; outdoor patio with fire pits and grills for guest use; oversized fitness center and guest laundry facilities. 

Construction will start this fall. President Jeff Stockert has developed and managed hotels since 1993. The group owns hotels in Salt Lake City, Buckeye and Glendale, too. 

“We believe we have selected an A-plus site that will have tremendous visibility and presence within the Buckeye Verrado community that will satisfy a tremendous need in the area for high-quality accommodations that provide warm, welcoming hospitality,” Stockert said.

“We have a long history in this business and so are confident that this dual-branded hotel complex will be well received and do very well at this location.”
