An affiliate of Atlanta-based Songy Highroads purchased the Hyatt Fairfax at Fair Lakes, a full-service hotel located in Fairfax, Va.

The 14-story hotel was constructed in 1989 and contains 316 rooms. It has 9,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 4,140-square-foot ballroom. The NoVa Grill and NoVa Bar provide dining options throughout the day and evening. Additional amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, a heated indoor pool, jogging trails, the NoVa Market convenience store and a patio that can host outdoor events.

Near-term plans call for a $14 million renovation of the property. Upgrades will include updating the pool and fitness center, upgrading rooms and corridors to Hyatt Regency standards and converting 30-60 of the guestrooms into extended stay rooms in an effort to attract more weekend and business travelers. Future improvements could include enhancing the hotel entrance and adding new meeting space. Songy Highroads hired Ambridge Hospitality to manage the hotel.
