The 81-room Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in Eugene, Oregon is scheduled to open on Friday, December 29, 2017. Located at 3003 Franklin Boulevard, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Eugene East/Springfield will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned and managed by Alko Hotels of Eugene, Oregon.
Located 11 miles from Eugene Airport and just minutes from downtown, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Eugene East/Springfield offers guests convenient access to the University of Oregon, downtown Springfield, the Matthew Knight Arena and the Jordan Schnitzer Art Museum.
“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 Eugene East/Springfield 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 Eugene area.”
From the moment they arrive, guests are welcomed by the hotel’s modern, bright new design features, including an updated exterior with a signature tower, a curved porte-cochere and an inviting glass entrance that ushers them into the hotel. Once inside, guests experience the hotel’s open public space featuring natural light and views throughout the lobby to connect the indoors with the outdoors. Consistent with the Fairfield brand’s heritage of great service and a warm welcome, guests are greeted by associates who can easily move from behind the angled front desk to interact and answer questions.
In the lobby area, guests can choose to be productive, relax or enjoy breakfast or a snack in a modern and flexible environment featuring a vibrant, natural color palette of greens, blues and oranges. Guests can also unwind in the lobby’s inviting living area ― whose focal points include a natural stone hearth, organic-shaped sofa and lounge chair, and unique local features — or they can grab a drink or snack item from the 24/7 Corner Market.
“We are thrilled to be adding a Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott to the Eugen/Springfield area,” said Alpesh (Al) Patel and Komal (Tina) Patel, owners of Fairfield Inn & Suites Eugene East/Springfield. “We believe this property will appeal to business and leisure travelers seeking modern design features and amenities consistent with the Fairfield Inn & Suites brand’s tradition of great guest services.”
The breakfast area’s signature farm table provides a central gathering place where guests can watch television, meet up with colleagues or get work done. In the morning, guests can enjoy complimentary hot breakfast, choosing from oatmeal, scrambled eggs, sausage, make-your-own waffles and other healthy items, such as fruit, yogurt, and whole grain cereals and breads.
The signature “smart” room décor warmly welcomes guests into a comfortable, productive and restful environment. Flexible and functional, the guest room includes a well-designed work area, an ergonomic chair, task lighting and electrical outlets where guests need them. A curved, mobile desk enables guests to create their own work space, while also optimizing their television viewing.
Inspired by nature, the hotel’s thoughtfully designed rooms and suites place the living and working area near the window to allow for more natural light and views. Building on this natural design, the room décor features organic patterns and fresh colors, blending wood tones with bright pops of color. The new design also places the sleeping area toward the middle of the room, helping to give guests a better night’s sleep on plush mattresses, as well as easier access to the bathroom and wardrobe. The bright, spacious living area also offers a comfortable couch, refrigerator, coffeemaker, microwave and 43-inch flat-screen television offering premium movie channels.
Additional hotel amenities include an indoor swimming pool, a fitness center, valet laundry service, complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as fax and copy services. The hotel also offers 300 square feet of space to accommodate functions of up to 30 people.
