Fairfield Inn planned at Harmony Commons in Fort Collins

FORT COLLINS — A 107-room Fairfield Inn and Suites is slated to open by spring in the Harmony Commons development in southeast Fort Collins.

Spirit Hospitality LLC announced on Tuesday that construction would begin this fall on the hotel in Brinkman Partners’ 9.2-acre mixed-use development on the southwest corner of Harmony Road and Lady Moon Drive. Wabco Construction, a division of Spirit, will build the hotel, and Spirit will operate it.

The Fairfield Inn and Suites will be the first property under the Marriott flag in Spirit Hospitality’s portfolio.

“We’re so excited to be in business with Brinkman and to venture out of our current molds to be affiliated with the Marriott brand,” said Bill Albrecht, Spirit’s chief executive, in a prepared statement. “We’re confident this property will thrive in the Harmony Commons Marketplace and, being accompanied by so many other great businesses in the area, will only further everyone’s success.”

MidiCi Neapolitan Pizza, Harbinger Coffee and a new brewhouse have been announced for Harmony Commons as well. The marketplace also is set to include a restaurant, fitness center and office space.
