The Fairfield Inn and Suites Marriott’s brief history:
Located in the foothills of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, Fairfield Farm was originally owned by the King of England.
Fairfield Farm so reminded J. W. Marriott of the western ranches of his childhood, he purchased the property for his family’s enjoyment in 1950. In 1987, the first Fairfield Inn hotel opened in Atlanta. The Manor House was refurbished in 1997 and opened as Marriott’s only Bed & Breakfast property, the Inn at Fairfield Farm.
Serving as a backdrop for American history, many prominent figures have visited Fairfield Farm. J. Willard Marriott continued the tradition by entertaining dignitaries such as Presidents Eisenhower and Reagan.
Today, Fairfield Farm is better known as the Marriott Ranch and is owned and operated by Marriott International. It continues to be a working cattle ranch, as well as a host location for special events.
The warm hospitality and simple beauty of Fairfield Manor House inspired the name of our hotels.
Today, the Fairfield brand continues to live up to its heritage, with over 3,000 associates providing a warm welcome and delivering a hotel experience that’s just right to each and every guest.
