Press release from Marriott International:
The 113-room Fairfield by Marriott Inn & Suites in Fletcher, North Carolina is scheduled to open on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 with a new décor that provides guests with a feeling of warmth and calm while traveling. Located at 155 Underwood Road, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Asheville Airport/Fletcher will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by Kodak Hospitality, LLC and managed by Blue Star Hospitality of Fletcher, North Carolina.
The Fairfield Inn & Suites Asheville Airport/Fletcher is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains and just one mile from the Asheville Regional Airport. The four-story hotel offers guest convenient access to the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Blue Ghost Brewery, the Asheville Outlets, the Biltmore Estate, downtown Asheville and historic Hendersonville. For outdoor enthusiasts, the property is near the French Broad River, the Nantahala River, Looking Glass Falls, Sliding Rock and the Appalachian Trail.
“Delivering both function and comfort, our new design and décor elevate the Fairfield brand, setting a new standard in the moderate tier category,” Janis Milham, senior vice president and global brand leader, Classic Select Brands. “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 Asheville Airport/Fletcher 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 Fletcher 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 indoor swimming pool, a fitness center, valet laundry service, complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as fax and copy services, and offers 360 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 20 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.
