Fairfield Inn & Suites is a Marriot brand hotel. Their new “Modern Urban Oasis” is ready to welcome guests!

This is a new Birmingham project headed up by Ascent Hospitality, who is no stranger to the area. In 2017, they opened the Elyton Hotel, which is the sister development and next-door neighbor of the new Fairfield project.

Location of Hotel

Downtown Birmingham just keeps growing! Fairfield by Marriot will be located on 1st Ave, in the heart of downtown.

Right next to this development, the corner of 20th St. and 1st Ave N earned the nickname “The Heaviest Corner on Earth” thanks to the four skyscrapers that made it famous.
