THE DALLES, OR—The 80-room Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott located here is scheduled to open on July 3, 2014. The Fairfield Inn & Suites The Dalles will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned and managed by Escape Lodging of Cannon Beach, Oregon. This is the first Fairfield Inn & Suites in the area to feature the brand’s new design and decor.
“Delivering both function and comfort, our new design and decor elevate the Fairfield brand, setting a new standard in the moderate tier category,” said Shruti Buckley, VP 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 The Dalles is a truly stunning example of the brand’s contemporary new look and feel, and we are pleased to introduce Fairfield Inn & Suites hotels in The Dalles area.”
The Fairfield Inn & Suites The Dalles features modern design features, including an updated exterior with a signature tower, a curved porte-cochere and a glass entrance. The hotel’s open public space featuring natural light and views throughout the lobby connect the indoors with the outdoors.
The lobby gives guests ample connectivity options, as well as a “connect and print” area that offers both standing and seated Internet stations. Guests can also unwind in the lobby’s living area—whose focal points include a natural stone hearth, organic-shaped sofa and lounge chair and local features.
The Fairfield Inn & Suites The Dalles features signature “smart” room decor. Flexible and functional, the guestroom includes a work area, an ergonomic chair, task lighting and electrical outlets. A curved, mobile desk enables guests to create their own workspace, while also optimizing their TV viewing.
Inspired by nature, the hotel’s 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 decor 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. The living area also offers a couch, refrigerator, coffeemaker and microwave, and the bath area continues the room’s contemporary feel with showers available in all standard King rooms and suites.
