“Our client met their investment goals and was able to achieve an excellent return for their investors. The Fairfield Inn and Suites received significant investor interest due to the premium brand, the high quality of the physical facility and the strong regional market. After Glacier House Hotels completes minor property improvements, the hotel will be well-positioned to increase its market penetration and cash flow,” commented Mike Armstrong. 

The hotel maintains a highly visible location on Fair Avenue, immediately off of Interstate 82. The Hotel’s accessibility to Interstate 82 and immediate proximity to Bob’s Burgers & Brew make it a favorite lodging facility for visitors to the Yakima Training Center, one of Yakima’s most prominent demand generators. Other demand generators include the Yakima Convention Center, Yakima Speedway, the Yakima River and State Fair Park.
