Shaner Hotels has opened Fairfield Inn & Suites Harrisburg, a 123-key hotel owned and operated by them. Susquehanna Area Regional Airport Authority in Harrisburg, Pa., leased the land that the property sits on. The company broke ground last year in June.

Located near the Harrisburg International Airport, the hotel also offers convenient access to the PSU Hershey Medical Center, Hershey’s Chocolate World, HersheyPark, and Penn State Harrisburg Campus. The four-story property consists of 86 rooms and 37 suites, and offers common-area amenities such as:

  • on-site laundry
  • car rental service
  • valet dry-cleaning
  • fitness center
  • business center
  • full-service bar

Additionally, Fairfield Inn & Suites Harrisburg includes two meeting rooms totaling 1,690 square feet of space. The development is the first Marriott-branded hotel to open near an airport.

“Our portfolio now includes four hotels in Central Pennsylvania, and we maintain an active pipeline with additional projects in the area, including a project in Mechanicsburg that we plan to break ground on shortly,” Lance Shaner, Shaner Hotels’ chairman & CEO, said in a prepared statement. “Beyond sharing best practices and economies of scale, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Harrisburg will benefit from its proximity to the airport, literally connected to the airport terminals via walkway, as well as the fact that it is the first Marriott-branded hotel near the airport.”
