BALTIMORE, Dec. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The landmark Peabody Court Hotel, located in historic Mount Vernon Square, has opened a new chapter in its legacy. The 104-room hotel today became the Wyndham Baltimore Peabody Court, the city's first hotel in five years to fly the flag of this upscale hotel brand. The hotel is owned and operated by Silver Spring, Md. - based Sunburst Hospitality Corporation.
To celebrate its re-opening under the Wyndham flag, the hotel is offering introductory rates and packages available on the hotel's website, www.wyndham.com./hotels/BWIPC.
"Major upgrades to the rooms include the latest HD flat panel TVs and the upgraded Wyndham amenity package," said Kevin Hanley, President and CEO, Sunburst Hospitality Corporation. "The hotel meets the high, upscale Wyndham standards, and we are taking further steps to enhance the hotel experience with a complete make-over of all the public space, which will take place in phases over the next six months to minimize guest disruptions.
"This historic property offers the ambiance of a classic, European boutique hotel right in the educational and cultural epicenter of the city," he noted.

The hotel will target corporate travelers, as well as provide lodging and social and business meeting space for the many cultural, educational and medical facilities in the immediate neighborhood.
