The former Comfort Inn receives a complete top to bottom renovation
The 147-room Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in Alexandria, Virginia is set to open today with its smart, inventive public space and guest room design, and its bright and inviting décor. Located at 6254 Duke Street, the former Comfort Inn Alexandria West – Landmark will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned and managed by Baywood Hotels of Greenbelt, Maryland. The property has gone through extensive renovations to all guest rooms, bathrooms, as well as public spaces.
Located nine miles from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and 20 minutes from downtown Washington, D.C., the Fairfield Inn & Suites Alexandria/Landmark offers guests convenient access to Old Town Alexandria, the Springfield Town Center, Arlington Cemetery, the George Washington Masonic National Memorial and The Birchmere.
“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 Alexandria/Landmark is a truly stunning example of the brand’s contemporary look and feel, and we are pleased with the continued growth of Fairfield Inn & Suites hotels in the Alexandria area.”
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 newly refreshed stylish lobby area, guests can choose to be productive, relax or enjoy breakfast or a snack in a modern and flexible environment featuring modern furniture as well as a decorative fireplace. Guests can also unwind in the lobby’s inviting living area or they can grab a drink or snack item from the 24/7 Corner Market.
The completely renovated room warmly welcomes guests into a comfortable, productive and restful environment.
