The 95-room Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in Holyoke, Massachusetts is now open for business with its smart, inventive public space and guest room design, and its bright and inviting décor. The hotel is located at 229 Whiting Farms Road, at Holyoke’s newest development, Ingleside Square and will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned and managed by Shield Hotels of Northampton, Massachusetts. Ingleside Square is a ground-up redevelopment of a dynamic location, featuring such restaurants as Applebee’s, Chipotle and McDonalds as well as retail stores.
Located just 25 miles from Bradley International Airport the Fairfield Inn & Suites Springfield/Holyoke at Ingleside Square is conveniently based around exciting family attractions such as the Basketball Hall of Fame, Six Flags, Yankee Candle and the Volleyball Hall of Fame. The area’s newest attraction, the MGM Grand Casino, will open in downtown Springfield in 2018.
“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 Springfield/Holyoke at Ingleside Square 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 Holyoke 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.
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.
Additional hotel amenities include an indoor swimming pool, a 24/7 fitness center, valet laundry service, complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as fax and copy services. The hotel also offers 450 square feet of space to accommodate functions of up to 50 people.
