Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott opens in Herndon, Va.

The 108-room Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in Herndon, Va., is scheduled to open today at 485 Elden Street. The Fairfield Inn & Suites Dulles Airport Herndon/Reston will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned and managed by B. F. Saul Company Hospitality Group of Bethesda, Md. The Fairfield Inn & Suites Dulles Airport Herndon/Reston includes the brand’s new design and furnishings.

Located in downtown, near historic Herndon and six miles from the Dulles International Airport, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Dulles Airport Herndon/Reston offers guests access to Reston Town Center, Wolf Trap Performing Arts Center, the W&OD Trail and the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center National Air and Space Museum.

“Delivering both function and comfort, our new design and décor elevate the Fairfield brand, setting a new standard in the moderate tier category,” said Shruti Buckley, VP and global brand manager, Fairfield Inn & Suites. “At Fairfield Inn & Suites, we provide an easy, positive and productive travel experience, as well as the promise of consistent and reliable service at an exceptional value. The Fairfield Inn & Suites Dulles Airport Herndon/Reston is a truly stunning example of the brand’s contemporary new look and feel, and we are pleased to introduce Fairfield Inn & Suites hotels in the Herndon area.”

From the moment they arrive, guests are welcomed by the hotel’s modern, bright new design features, including an updated exterior and entrance that ushers them into the hotel. The hotel’s open public space provides natural light and views throughout the lobby to connect the indoors with the outdoors.

"We are delighted to welcome guests to our new Fairfield inn & Suites,” Ken Abrom, GM, Fairfield Inn & Suites Dulles Airport Herndon/Reston, said in a statement. “Our new hotel offers them a seamless blend of modern style and functionality that allows them to settle in and thrive while on the road."

In the lobby area, guests can choose to be productive, relax or enjoy breakfast or a snack in a modern and flexible environment with a natural color palette of greens, blues and oranges. The lobby gives guests a variety of 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 - or they can grab a drink or snack item from the 24/7 Corner Market.

The breakfast area’s farm table provides a central gathering place where guests can watch television, meet up with colleagues or get work done. In the morning, guests have access to complimentary hot breakfast, choosing from oatmeal, scrambled eggs, sausage, make-your-own waffles and other healthy items, such as fruit, yogurt and whole grain cereals and breads.

The hotel’s guestrooms include a work area, ergonomic chair, task lighting and electrical outlets within reach. A curved, mobile desk enables guests to create their own work space, while also optimizing their television 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 has organic patterns and colors, blending wood tones with bright pops of color. Each room also has a Keurigâ coffeemaker and a Bittel UNOMedia 5 phone.
