Virginia Holiday Inn to switch flags to Fairfield

B. F. Saul Company Hospitality Group, an owner and operator of full-service, select-service and extended-stay hotels, closed the 108-room Holiday Inn Express Reston Herndon – Dulles Airport in Virginia as it undergoes renovations in preparation for its conversion to a Fairfield Inn & Suites. The renovations will include all guestrooms and bathrooms, as well as the hotel’s public spaces.

“We are excited to add the Fairfield Inn & Suites brand to our portfolio of hotels,” said Mark Carrier, president, B.F. Saul Company Hospitality Group. “The renovation and conversion of this ideally located hotel creates an exciting and stylish destination for travelers.”

Located at 485 Elden Street in Herndon, Va., the hotel is 6 miles from the Dulles International Airport and offers access to the Reston Town Center, Wolf Trap National Park, the Udvar-Hazy Center and historic downtown Herndon. The property is also close to the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station and numerous corporate offices in the Dulles Tech Corridor.
