History[edit]

Introduced in May 1997, many were a rebranding of existing Fairfield all-suite hotels.[3] These featured a bedroom, living area and kitchen. Rooms included a microwave, small refrigerator, iron and hair dryer. The hotel’s breakfast buffet, and fax and copy services were complimentary.[4][5] Growing from 34 properties (six managed and 28 franchised) in 1999, 153 operated by 2006. The 300th opened in 2013.[2]
