Fairfield by Marriott hotel opens downtown
The 133-room Fairfield by Marriott hotel in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma opened Wednesday, January 8 with an upgraded décor that provides guests with a feeling of warmth and calm while traveling. Located at 10 SW 4th Street, the Fairfield by Marriott Inn & Suites Oklahoma City Downtown will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned and managed by Anish Hotels Group of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Anish Hotels Group owns 15 hotels in the area and recently broke ground on a 182-room Renaissance by Marriott in downtown Oklahoma City and plans on beginning construction later this year on two new hotels in downtown Phoenix, including a Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott.
The Fairfield Inn & Suites Oklahoma City Downtown is the first hotel to open in the new downtown convention center area, adjacent to the new $290 million Convention Center set to open in September and across from the new $140 million Scissortail Park. The new hotel is two blocks away from Chesapeake Energy Arena, home of the NBA team the OKC Thunder, and just minutes from the Bricktown Ballpark, Myraid Gardens, Bricktown, and numerous shopping, dining, and entertainment options.
Additional hotel amenities include a full-service bar featuring pre-prohibition craft cocktails, a fitness center, valet laundry service, complimentary Wi-Fi, business services and 988 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 75 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.
“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 Oklahoma City Downtown 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 Oklahoma City 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.
