Two Santa Clarita Valley hotels got full facelifts for visiting travelers and longer-term guests.

The Fairfield Inn and Residence Inn on The Old Road in Stevenson Ranch have been completely renovated from head to toe, said Lianne Snyder, corporate sales manager for the two Marriott hotels.

Part of a cluster of four Santa Clarita hotels – the Courtyard by Marriott on Westinghouse Place, Hampton Inn on The Old Road, and the Fairfield and Residence Inns are part of a portfolio of hotels operated by Louisiana-based Dimension Development Corp.

They are referred to as the “four pack,” Snyder said.

Built in 1997, this is the first full renovation since the hotels opened. Prior to this, both had “soft renovations,” she said, in which appliances, mattresses and other items had been updated.

“This is the first full renovation complete with new design, layout, ceilings, new furniture, flooring, everything,” Snyder said.

Working one section of a floor at a time, crews began the overhaul of all rooms and public spaces in the hotels in late December. They wrapped up the renovations in March.

“We remodeled about 25 to 30 rooms at a time,” she said. “There are 90 guest rooms in the Residence Inn and 66 rooms at the Fairfield.”

Lobbies, conference and meeting rooms, and outdoor living areas were also included in the multi-million dollar remodels of both hotels.

Costs to renovate ran about $1 million for the Fairfield and $1.8 million for the Residence Inn, according to General Manager of both hotels, Brad Cleveland.

“Everything is completely new,” Snyder said.

Keeping business travelers in mind, Snyder said renovations also included creating more work space for guests, more power sources for digital devices, and “social zones” for business people to meet or relax.

Room upgrades included the addition of King-size beds and stainless steel appliances.

Because business people will use the Fairfield Inn for short-term stays, and people relocating to the SCV for employment will stay longer-term at the Residence Inn, Dimension Development added a lot more work space in rooms based on guests surveys, Snyder said.

The hotels are holding a grand opening to officially debut their new looks April 24.
