Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott
Rehoboth Beach, DE
Gillis Gilkerson (GGI) completed the construction of the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The four story, 60,300 square foot hotel was completed on time and within the allotted budget despite many weather-related hurdles presented by a winter build. The finished hotel boasts 94 guest rooms, conference and meeting areas, an indoor pool, fitness room, basement bar, and lobby designed to accommodate hot breakfast service for guests.
The hotel is owned by Hudson Management Group, a regional hospitality ownership, and management entity. The opening of this particular Fairfield Inn & Suites not only marked their entrance into the hospitality sector but also the Marriott brand’s entrance into the Southern Delaware region.
As part of the build, GGI delivered an exterior cladded with a combination of cementitious siding and an Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) which offers continuous insulation designed to meet evolving building and energy codes. Project Manager Mike Truitt led Gillis Gilkerson’s onsite construction team and managed the build from initiation through successful completion.
“This was definitely not an off-the-shelf type hotel. It was a custom design to maximize
our guests’ experiences. There is nothing like this anywhere in our market area. Gillis Gilkerson did a great job, and the quality and craftsmanship is second to none.”
