USA, Fair Oaks, Indiana. January 09, 2020

First Hospitality today announces it has assumed management of Fairfield by Marriott Fair Oaks Farms. The one-of-a-kind hotel is located in a nearby country destination and agritourism attraction just outside of greater Chicago at 708 N. 600 E. in Fair Oaks, Indiana.

"Fair Oaks Farms offers travelers the highest standards in hospitality along with a countryside escape," says David Duncan, president of First Hospitality. "This is a unique property, and we look forward to sharing it with new and returning guests."

Fairfield by Marriott Fair Oaks Farms is owned by Fair Oaks Farms, who developed and opened the property in January. It marks First Hospitality's fourth hotel under management in Indiana.

Designed as a contemporary barn, the hotel features 68 traditional guest rooms and 31 suites with décor that celebrates the American countryside and custom art throughout the property. 11 custom-designed suites include the Business Silo Suites with a conference room for six people; the Family Bunk Silo Suites featuring bunkbeds and bean bag chairs; the Bridal Silo Suites offering an ideal dressing room for the wedding party; and the Entertainment Suites, which are practical for receptions, small gatherings, and a game of cards or bumper pool.

Other guest amenities include a themed "Pool Party" indoor, saltwater pool and waterslide, indoor and outdoor hot tub, fitness room, large outdoor patio, business center, Great Room common area with a fireplace, and complimentary Wi-Fi and breakfast.

Fairfield by Marriott Fair Oaks Farms is also connected to the Farmhouse Restaurant, Pub & Conference Center with over 17,000-square-feet of wedding, meeting, and private dining space. The hotel's location at Fair Oaks Farms allows guests to become fully immersed in the nature of the surrounding countryside and engaged in true life adventures in sustainable farming.

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.
