Construction crews have broken ground on a new 74-room, three-story Marriott Fairfield Inn and Suites hotel on Main Street in Hailey.
The $7.5 million project is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2020.
“After almost three years, I am excited to see it get going,” architect Errin Bliss said. “It will be a nice addition to Hailey.”
Bliss said the general contractor for the project is Maurer Construction of Missoula, Mont.
The 42,400-square-foot hotel will feature an indoor pool, fitness room, breakfast and dining room, and a bar, which will be open to the public.
Fairfield Inn by Marriott is a lower-cost chain of hotels franchised by Marriott International. The Hailey location is being developed by a company named Hailey FF.
The Hailey Urban Renewal Agency in April approved a plan to reimburse developers of the hotel for up to $369,623 of expected costs to build required sidewalks, curbs, utility lines and other improvements on city rights of way around the property on the northern end of Main Street.
