CSO was commissioned by White Lodging Services to design a new, five-story hotel adjacent to the University of Notre Dame campus. Located within walking distance of the football stadium, the Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites is a 119-key, custom designed hotel. The exterior building design incorporates brick and stone masonry to compliment nearby retail and commercial development. The interior design of the hotel, featuring the Notre Dame Fighting Irish’s blue and gold, celebrates the University’s long-standing traditions. The hotel amenities include a fitness center, indoor pool, two meeting/event rooms, business center, and dining area. In addition, the hotel has spacious, contemporary rooms and suites equipped with work desks and ergonomic chairs. Construction for the new hotel was completed two months early.
