USA, Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. July 06, 2020

The 82-room Fairfield by Marriott hotel located in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota is now open for business with a new décor that provides guests with a feeling of warmth and calm while traveling. Located at 6250 Earle Brown Drive, the Fairfield by Marriott Inn & Suites Minneapolis North will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by Empire Hotels Group and managed by Rudra Management of Cheektowaga, New York.

Situated next to the historic Earle Brown Heritage Center and eight miles from downtown Minneapolis, the Fairfield by Marriott Inn & Suites Minneapolis North offers guests convenient access to The Shoppes at Arbor Lakes and numerous shopping, dining and entertainment options.

"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 Minneapolis North 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 Brooklyn Center 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, 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.

Additional hotel amenities include an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor patio with a fire pit, a fitness center, business services, valet laundry service, complimentary Wi-Fi, and 528 square feet of meeting space. A complimentary hot breakfast featuring oatmeal, scrambled eggs, sausage, and other healthy items, such as fruit, yogurt, and whole grain cereals and breads is also available.

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
