The result is a new design Fairfield Inn for the area immediately west of the proposed convention center.
The new plans call for a 5-story, 133-room hotel of approximately 71,000 square feet on the southwest corner of SW 4th and Shields.
Based on a prototype for the chain, this property would substitute metal panels, large format tile, stucco and glass for what would typically be synthetic stucco finishes.
However, their application cites prohibitive costs as the reason for surface rather than structured parking.
This would be the 25th downtown hotel as per our Downtown Hotel Summary.
The Downtown Design Review Committee will review the plans at its January meeting.
