The 96-room Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in Columbus, Ind., officially opened. Located at 2820 Merchants Mile, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Columbus will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by AGS Columbus and managed by HP Hotels of Alpharetta, Ga.

Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Columbus offers guests access to downtown Columbus, the Edinburgh Premium Outlets and Architectural Tours.

“Delivering both function and comfort, our new design and décor elevate the Fairfield brand, setting a new standard in the moderate tier category,” Callette Nielsen, VP and global brand manager, Fairfield Inn & Suites, said in a statement. “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 Columbus is a truly stunning example of the brand’s contemporary look and feel, and we are pleased to introduce Fairfield Inn & Suites hotels in the Columbus area.”

The new décor package includes specific elements meant to evoke feelings from the Fairfield Farm, including a farmhouse table in the lobby for gathering and connecting, photography from the Fairfield Farm serving as artwork in the lobby and guestrooms, natural materials and unique textures throughout and a history wall in every property showcasing the brand’s roots.

The new guestroom design addresses the functional needs of the Fairfield guest for a seamless experience. The hotel's guestrooms were designed with the modern traveler’s needs to stay productive on the road in mind, without overcomplicating the guestroom. Each room has a modern lounge chair, serving as both functional and comfortable to either work or relax in. The artwork in the room takes center stage with the window treatment acting as a focal point, displaying photography taken at the Fairfield Farm. The material is sheer and allows light to pass through the photography, warming up the room and creating a comfortable environment. The guestrooms also include a mobile desk, a couch, refrigerator, coffeemaker and microwave.

Additional hotel amenities include an indoor swimming pool, a fitness center, the 24/7 Corner Market, valet laundry service, complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as fax and copy services, and offers 3,125 square feet of versatile event space to accommodate functions of up to 300 people. A complimentary hot breakfast, featuring oatmeal, scrambled eggs, sausage, make-your-own waffles and other healthy items such as fruit, yogurt and whole grain cereals and breads is also available.
