EDMONTON — The 135-room Fairfield by Marriott Edmonton International Airport, Alberta is scheduled to open today. Located at 4545 Airport Perimeter Rd., the property will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by K5 Investment Group Inc. and managed by Hotel Equities.
“Delivering both function and comfort, our new design and decor elevates the Fairfield brand, setting a new standard in the moderate-tier category,” says Janis Milham, senior vice-president and global brand leader, Classic Select Brands. “The Fairfield by Marriott Edmonton International Airport is a truly stunning example of the brand’s contemporary look and feel and we are pleased to introduce Fairfield by Marriott hotels in the Edmonton International Airport area.”
The new decor 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 guestrooms, natural materials and unique textures featured throughout and a history wall in every property showcasing the brand’s roots.
Designed with productivity in mind, the new guestroom design features a modern lounge chair to either work or relax in. The hotel also features soundproof rooms with state-of-the-art temperature-control systems.
“Our engagement from inception on the development and construction side of the project, along with our pre-sale and ramp-up of the hotel, deliver incredible ROI to our owners,” says Joe Reardon, Chief Development Officer for Hotel Equities. “We’re excited to bring that level of high-performance results to our great partners with K5 Investment ownership group and we could not be any more pleased to work with such great owners on this exciting new hotel in Edmonton.”
