Fairfield opens in Hershey, Pa., with next generation design, decor

Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott has announced the opening in Hershey, Pennsylvania of the Fairfield Inn & Suites Hershey Chocolate Avenue. The 108-room property located at 651 West Areba Avenue, operates as a Marriott franchise, owned by Springwood FHP LP and managed by Springwood Hospitality, LLC of York, Pennsylvania.

This is the first Fairfield Inn & Suites in the area to feature the brand’s new design and décor, which enhance the guest experience through flexible features, and more welcoming environment.

Located less than one mile from Hershey Park and 10 miles from Harrisburg International Airport, the hotel offers guests access to Hershey’s Chocolate World, Penn State Hershey Medical Center and the Giant Center.

Fairfield Inn & Suites Hershey Chocolate Avenue’s new design starts at the entrance, with new features including an updated exterior with a signature tower, a curved porte-cochere and a glass entrance. Once inside, guests experience the hotel’s open public space featuring natural light and views throughout the lobby to connect the indoors with the outdoors.

In the hotel lobby area, guests can choose to be productive, relax or enjoy meals in a modern and flexible environment featuring a natural color palette of greens, blues and oranges. The lobby gives guests connectivity options, as well as a “connect and print” area that offers both standing and seated Internet stations. Guests can also unwind in the lobby’s living area, whose focal points include a natural stone hearth, organic-shaped sofa and lounge chair, and unique local features. There is also a 24/7 Corner Market.


The breakfast area’s signature farm table provides a central gathering place where guests can watch TV, meet up with colleagues or get work done.

The Fairfield Inn & Suites Hershey Chocolate Avenue’s signature “smart” room décor includes: a work area, an ergonomic chair, task lighting and electrical outlets where guests need them. A curved, mobile desk enables guests to create their own work space, while also optimizing their TV viewing.

Inspired by nature, the hotel’s rooms and suites place the living and working area near the window to allow for more natural light and views. Building on this natural design, the room décor features organic patterns and fresh colors, blending wood tones with bright pops of color. The new design also places the sleeping area toward the middle of the room for easier access to the bathroom and wardrobe. The living area also offers a couch, refrigerator, coffeemaker and microwave. The bath area continues the room’s bright feel with showers available in all standard king rooms and suites.

Additional hotel amenities include an indoor swimming pool, an exercise room, an electric-car charger, valet laundry service, complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as fax and copy services.

Fairfield Inn & Suites has more than 675 properties throughout the US, Canada and Mexico.

Marriott International Inc. is based in Bethesda, Maryland, with more than 3,800 properties in 74 countries and territories.
