The 84-room Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in Butte, Mont., is now open. Located at 2340 Cornell Avenue, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Butte will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by Hotel Developers-Butte and managed by Inntrusted of Idaho Falls, Idaho. This is the first Fairfield Inn & Suites in the area to include the brand’s new design and décor.
Located midtown and five minutes from Bert Mooney Airport, the hotel offers guests access to the World Museum of Mining, the Piccadilly Museum of Transportation, the Berkely Pit and numerous walking trails.
“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 Butte 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 Butte area.”
From the moment they arrive, guests are welcomed by the hotel’s modern, bright new design features, including an updated exterior with a tower, a curved porte-cochere and a glass entrance that ushers them into the hotel. Once inside, guests experience the hotel’s open public space with natural light and views throughout the lobby to connect the indoors with the outdoors. At the hotel’s entrance, guests are greeted by associates who can move from behind the angled front desk to interact and answer questions.
The lobby gives guests multiple 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 — 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 work. In the morning, guests can enjoy 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 guestroom décor includes a work area, 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 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 fresh colors, blending wood tones with bright pops of color. The new design also places the sleeping area toward the middle of the room, helping to give guests a better night’s sleep on plush mattresses, as well as easier access to the bathroom and wardrobe. The bright, spacious living area also offers a comfortable couch, refrigerator, coffeemaker and microwave.
Additional hotel amenities include an indoor swimming pool, an exercise room, valet laundry service, complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as fax and copy services. The hotel also offers 636 square feet of space to accommodate functions of up to 71 people.
