Chesterfield Hotels, Inc. was founded in 1996 by David Parmley to manage his first hotel investment, the Hampton Inn – Chesterfield, a 91 room property that opened in February of 1997.

Due to the immediate success of that property his development group decided to build their second hotel, the Hampton Inn and Suites - Chesterfield, in the quickly expanding Chesterfield Valley area of West St Louis County. That 120 room property opened in August of 2000.

In 2007, the company expanded Westward, with the purchase of the existing Hampton Inn and Suites in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  After an extensive top to bottom renovation and refurbishment, it is now the market leader in its segment.

 In 2008 Chesterfield Hotels Inc. developed a 134 room property, the Hampton Inn and Suites - Columbia at the University of Missouri, located on a site adjacent to the Mizzou campus.

 In 2009 we opened the Stadium Grill restaurant on a parcel next to our Hampton Inn & Suites and located just 2,000 feet from the Mizzou Basketball Arena and Football Stadium. Both of these projects have been very successful and well received in the market.

 In 2014 the company completed construction of The Broadway, A Doubletree by Hilton hotel. This seven story boutique hotel serves as both the gateway to Downtown Columbia and the North Village Arts District. The 114 room hotel also features The Roof, an exciting indoor/outdoor venue with impressive views of Columbia and the University of Missouri. The property is the only hotel in Mid Missouri to achieve LEED status and was also recognized by Hilton Hotels as the Best New Doubletree Development for 2014.
