Where it all began
In 1951, John Willard and Alice Marriott purchased Fairfield Farm and fell in love at first sight. While at Fairfield, JW and Alice Marriott perfected their unique take on hospitality, treating their guests with warm, friendly service. The pure, found joy and natural ease of the farm inspired Marriott to create Fairfield by Marriott in 1987, a brand built on the principles of warmth, family, comfort, and simplicity. Today, more than 950 Fairfield by Marriott hotels around the world are rooted in the principles that began in just one place.
