Courtyard by Marriott opened its doors on July 2nd, 2009. A group of local investors together with Palmer Gosnell Hospitality (Management Company) put their vision and ideas together and created a beautiful property in the heart of Historic District Fredericksburg. Even though Courtyard by Marriott opened in the mist of recession, it has always captured its fair share of the Market mainly due to overwhelming local support and its sheer historic location which attracts all sorts of travelers, i.e. Corporate / Leisure / Sports Teams / Conferences. Courtyard has enjoyed hosting many wedding parties and social events. Our weekday business travelers love the idea of being downtown and often return with their families to visit Fredericksburg, VA. The Courtyard has partnered and works with the City of Fredericksburg, Chamber of Commerce, Main Street and the Visitor Center on many occasions, as well as opening its doors to providing meeting spaces when needed for the downtown community to meet. Courtyard has always been a hot spot for local gatherings and events, offering live music and comedy shows.

Courtyard by Marriott Historic District staff has been recognized on the Marriott conference stage for providing exceptional service and excellent financial results. Courtyard went through with a complete renovation in 2017 to ensure it maintains its leading edge on the competition.
Courtyard enjoyed its ten years of prosperity and on December 26th, 2018, the hotel was bought out buy an investor group from Utah, Venture Hospitality 2, LLC.
