Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


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.
