LIMA — A Lima hotel that was constructed more than 20 years ago has a new look, thanks to an eight-month renovation process that resulted in redesigned decor and more amenities for guests.

Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott, located at 2179 Elida Road, unveiled its newly renovated hotel Thursday during a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Valerie Bollenbacher, the hotel’s general manager, said the decor makes it look more “modern, trendy and eye-catching.”

“Our property is 21 years old, so this did wonders for our building,” Bollenbacher said. “When you walk in, it’s like looking at a whole new place.”

The hotel’s 62 guest rooms were redone, as was the dining area and swimming pool. They also added a fitness center, a guest laundry room and a marketplace that sells snacks, beverages and frozen meals.

Described by hotel officials as a “smart, inventive guest room design,” the new rooms have been repurposed with a “bright and inviting decor.”

“Flexible and functional, the guest room includes a well-designed work area, an ergonomic chair, task lighting and electrical outlets where guests need them,” a press release stated. “A curved, mobile desk enables guests to create their own work space, while also optimizing their television viewing.”

Inspired by nature, the hotel’s newly designed rooms and suites place the living and working area near the window to allow for more natural light and views. Building on this natural design, the room décor features “organic patterns and fresh colors,” blending wood tones with bright pops of color.

The new design also places the sleeping area toward the middle of the room, which is meant to give guests a better night’s sleep on plush mattresses, as well as easier access to the bathroom and wardrobe. The living area features a couch, refrigerator, coffeemaker and microwave, and the bath area comes equipped with showers in all king executive rooms.

“It’s a more modern look,” Bollenbacher said of the rooms.

She added that guests who stayed at the Fairfield Inn more than a year ago will hardly recognize the hotel.

“We get people walking through the front door who are just like, ‘wow,’” she said. “It really did a lot for our property, and we’re excited to show our guests all that we now have to offer.”
