The 100-room Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in Athens, Tennessee is scheduled to open this Tuesday, May 15, 2018 with a new décor that provides guests with a feeling of warmth and calm while traveling. Located at 106 Burkett L. Witt Boulevard, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Athens will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned and managed by Daly Hotel Management of Greensboro, North Carolina. General Manager Cory Grubb and Director of Sales Melody Gibby lead the management team at the hotel.
Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Athens offers guests convenient access to historic downtown Athens, Tennessee Wesleyan University, Mayfield Dairy Farm, Hiwassee River Rail Adventure, The Arts Center and the McMinn County Living Heritage Museum. Rates begin at $149 per night.
“Delivering both function and comfort, our new design and décor elevate the Fairfield brand, setting a new standard in the moderate tier category,” said Callette Nielsen, vice president and global brand manager, Fairfield Inn & Suites. “At Fairfield Inn & Suites, we provide an easy, positive and productive travel experience, as well as the promise of consistent and reliable service at an exceptional value. The Fairfield Inn & Suites Athens is a truly stunning example of the brand’s contemporary look and feel, and we are pleased to introduce Fairfield Inn & Suites hotels in the Athens area.”
The new décor package is warm, timeless, forward-thinking, and inviting with simple nods back to the brand’s heritage. Specific elements meant to evoke feelings from the Fairfield Farm include a farmhouse table in the lobby for gathering and connecting, photography from the Fairfield Farm serving as artwork in the lobby and guest rooms, natural materials and unique textures featured throughout, and a history wall in every property showcasing the brand’s roots.
The new guestroom design is impactful, unique and addresses the functional needs of the Fairfield guest for a seamless experience. The room was designed with the modern traveler’s needs to stay productive on the road in mind without overcomplicating the guestroom. Each room features 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 feature a mobile desk, a comfortable couch, refrigerator, coffeemaker and microwave.
Additional hotel amenities include an outdoor swimming pool, an exercise room, valet laundry service, complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as fax and copy services, and offers 600 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 40 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.
