Marriott is expanding its Pittsburgh portfolio with another Fairfield Inn & Suites. The 120-key hotel is located at the Harrisburg International Airport. Shaner Hotels owns and will be managing the property.

Common area amenities will include a fitness and a business center, an on-site laundry facility, a lobby lounge and approximately 1,600 square feet of meeting space. Additionally, Fairfield Inn & Suites Harrisburg will offer a daily, complimentary breakfast along with a bar featuring a wide array of drinks and small bites food menu.

Airport-bound location

The four-story hotel is located adjacent to the Harrisburg International Airport, which is situated in central Pennsylvania, making it the busiest airport. Fairfield Inn & Suites Harrisburg is minutes away from the Middletown business community and Penn State Harrisburg Campus. Additionally, FedEx and UPS have extensive facilities at the airport which serves as a take-off/landing practice runway for Air Force One.

“This hotel is an ideal addition to our growing, international portfolio of select- and full-service hotels located in key markets with strong demand generators and high barriers to entry,” Plato Ghinos, Shaner president, said in a statement. “HIA provides transportation to more 1.3 million passengers and 100 million pounds of cargo annually. Furthermore, it is just a short drive to such major attractions such as HersheyPark, Hershey’s Chocolate World, the PSU Hershey Medical Center and downtown Harrisburg, creating a strong lodging demand for leisure and business travelers alike.”
