The 76-room Fairfield by Marriott hotel in Corpus Christi, Texas is set to open on Friday, November 8, 2019 with a new décor that provides guests with a feeling of warmth and calm while traveling. Located at 522 South Padre Island Drive, the Fairfield by Marriott Inn & Suites Corpus Christi Central will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned and managed by Buffalo Lodging LLC.
Located five miles from Corpus Christi Central and 10 minutes from downtown, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Corpus Christi Central offers guests convenient access to the Art Museum of South Texas, the Selena Museum, the USS Lexington Naval Museum and the Texas State Aquarium.
“Delivering both function and comfort, our new design and décor elevate the Fairfield brand, setting a new standard in the moderate tier category,” said Janis Milham, Senior Vice President and Global Brand Leader, Classic Select Brands at Marriott International. “At Fairfield by Marriott, 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 by Marriott Inn & Suites Corpus Christi Central is a truly stunning example of the brand’s contemporary look and feel, and we are pleased with the continued growth of Fairfield by Marriott hotels in the Corpus Christi 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, and a history wall in every property showcasing the brand’s roots.
The new guestroom design is impactful and unique, while addressing the functional needs of the Fairfield guest for a seamless experience. The room was designed with the modern traveler in mind, allowing for productivity on the road 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, a fitness center, business services, valet laundry service, complimentary Wi-Fi, and 600 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 25 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.
