Illinois Fairfield Inn completes multimillion-dollar renovation

Cicero’s Development Corp., a leading renovation contractor specializing in the hospitality industry, announced today the successful completion of a multimillion-dollar renovation of the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in Bedford Park, Ill. The project began in March 2015 with final sign-off in June. Conveniently located just blocks from Chicago’s Midway Airport, the hotel’s upgrade extended throughout its reception area, lobby, and public spaces and into 114 guestrooms to create a cohesive and revitalizing atmosphere, assuring brand integrity and total consistency with Fairfield’s heritage of great service.

Cicero’s collaborated with Chicago-based architectural/interior/ADA design and project management firm Zimmerman Weintraub Associates LLC in the renovation.

Notably, the design included the signature “smart” room decor package that now welcomes guests into a comfortable, productive and restful environment. Flexible and functional, the smart room includes a well-designed work area, an ergonomic chair, task lighting and electrical outlets where guests need them.

The refreshed Fairfield Inn and Suites offers inviting accommodations for both business and leisure travelers with families. Every aspect of the hotel — from furniture and lighting to colors and fabrics — was thoughtfully renovated to offer vibrant and collaborative spaces. Guest rooms feature new carpet, lighting, curtains, updated bathrooms with new tile, vinyl wall coverings, tub surrounds and light fixtures, and paint schemes, while the recharged public areas provide a great setting for conducting casual meetings or simply socializing in an open environment with modern upbeat colors, accent fabrics, new carpet, updated check-in areas and fitness center, and re-tiled pool area.

RLJ Lodging Trust, a self-advised, publicly traded real estate investment trust that owns the hotel, said the renovation will further strengthen the asset’s market presence and drive additional growth for the hotel and the Company’s portfolio. The Fairfield Inn & Suites Chicago Midway Airport is managed by White Lodging.
