Opens Sixth Property in Fishkill, New York
WICHITA, Kan. – March 8, 2006 - Sierra Suites® Hotels is creating a buzz in Poughkeepsie-Fishkill, NY. LodgeWorks, L.P., parent company of the Sierra Suites Hotel chain, will open the doors to its newest next-generation hotel Tuesday, March 14, 2006. The objective, developers say, is an unrivaled hotel experience.
“Sierra Suites Poughkeepsie-Fishkill (100 Westage Business Center Drive, Fishkill, NY) is a fresh interpretation of what we think today’s business and leisure traveler desires in a hotel,” says Cheryl Doll, vice president of Marketing and Distribution for LodgeWorks. “It has a great location and a fresh, contemporary style. Service is still refreshingly personal. And it’s loaded with amenities to allow our guests—business and leisure—to live their best life while they travel.
While one of the marks of a Sierra Suites Hotel is a strong regional aesthetic, the company remains committed to its own, branded attitude and seamless attention to its guests.
“We are a hotel company that wakes up thinking about how to merge style and functionality, how to be a little bit aspirational at the same time we’re inviting our guests to kick off their shoes, lay down their laptop and stay awhile. The driver of every decision is empathy.”
With the opening of Sierra Suites Poughkeepsie-Fishkill, guests will find that attitude expressed through an amenity package that makes it easy to maintain daily routines.
In addition to traditional guest rooms, the hotel offers generous one- and two-bedroom suites with kitchens. A 24-hour on-site convenience store, expanded exercise room with cardio stations and weight training, gourmet coffee and complimentary breakfast with hot items are staples. The Sierra Café and Bar will also play host to a complimentary weekday social hour with beer, wine and hors d’oeuvres. An extended cash bar is a new feature, according to Doll.
“We’re focused on taking the guest from wired to wineglass,” she says,
“offering a continuum of amenities from free, wired and wireless high-speed
internet access to a complimentary, multi-station business center to conference
suites and a meeting room for up to 200 to a comfortable spot in the bar
in front of a large, flat screen TV when the lights go down.”
Sierra Suites Poughkeepsie-Fishkill will open in the Westage Business Center at the intersection of Interstate 84 and Route 9, a short distance to IBM and the United States Military Academy at West Point. Hotel staff, under the supervision of General Manager Howard Gerhardt, are available to give tours by appointment prior to opening.
