Local hotels plan grand openings

A pair of local hotels are preparing to show off their new digs over the next two weeks. One is a grand opening while the other is a re-opening to showcase an updated style.

The Fairfield Inn and Suites Atlanta Gwinnett Place is having its grand opening on Aug. 28 from 6 to 9 p.m. The hotel is located at 3570 Breckinridge Boulevard in Duluth.

“The Fairfield Inn and Suites Atlanta Gwinnett Place is larger than most select service hotels and feature much more meeting space,” James Clements, director of sales, said.

The hotel is also part of Marriott’s new generation 4 prototype model. Clements said that the hotel is the second of only three prototypes in the country.

The TownePlace Suites in Norcross/Peachtree Corners is having its grand re-opening on Thursday from 4 to 6 p.m. The hotel is located at 6640 Bay Circle in Norcross.

The hotel’s new features include fully equipped kitchens with granite counters and stainless steel appliances, new bedding, flat screen TVs, an innovative lobby, updated fitness center with cardio equipment, enhanced complimentary breakfast atmosphere and complimentary WI-Fi throughout the hotel.
