News for the Hospitality Executive
McLEAN, Va. (April 24, 2010) – Embassy Suites Hotels today announced the opening of Embassy Suites Fayetteville/Fort Bragg, the Fayetteville/Fort Bragg, N.C. area’s first upscale, full service, all-suites hotel. The 165-suite property is constructed in the brand’s latest design style, Design Option III and is the eighth Embassy Suites in North Carolina. Located at 4760 Lake Valley Drive, the hotel is conveniently situated off of the All American Freeway near the Cross Creek Mall. MBM Hospitality, LLC developed the property and Five Points Hospitality will manage the new hotel.
The Fayetteville/Fort Bragg property is the first Embassy Suites hotel for MBM Hospitality, LLC, and Five Points Hospitality; however, both groups are very familiar with the Hilton Worldwide portfolio of brands. Together they already own and manage the Hilton Garden Inn Fayetteville/Fort Bragg, and Five Points Hospitality manages the Hilton Garden Inn Jacksonville/Orange Park, Fla.
“We’re thrilled to expand our presence in North Carolina with the opening of Embassy Suites Fayetteville/Fort Bragg,” said Jim Holthouser, global head of Embassy Suites Hotels and full service brands, Hilton Worldwide. “The opening of this property will bring the brand’s well- known value proposition to Fayetteville/Fort Bragg’s business and leisure travelers alike with our two-room suites, complimentary happy hour* and free breakfast. The Design Option III design style has been a win for both developers and our loyal guests, and we’re confident that the same will be true of this property.”
The innovative and flexible Design Option III style features side-by-side suites (versus the traditional shotgun style) and a contemporary atrium area, decreasing the amount of land needed and creating efficiencies for both construction and operational costs. These features further enhance the Embassy Suites guest experience as there is still a great sense of space and more natural light in guest rooms and public areas like the atrium, while still maintaining all of the offerings that are characteristic of Embassy Suites hotels including the complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast and Manager’s Reception*.
Manish Mehta, principal, MBM Hospitality, LLC, stated, “We recognized there was a need for an upscale hotel option in the Fayetteville/Fort Bragg area and saw it as a great opportunity to expand our Hilton Worldwide portfolio. We’re excited to open Embassy Suites Fayetteville/Fort Bragg, the first upscale, full service, all-suites hotel in the area and a brand that is known for providing great value and excellent customer service.”
Embassy Suites Fayetteville/Fort Bragg anticipates accommodating visitors to the area’s major corporations, healthcare providers and facilities and military contractors, who will have easy access to a variety of shops and restaurants at the Cross Creek Mall. The hotel features all of the signature amenities standard at any Embassy Suites hotel, including an atrium; free cooked-to-order breakfast each morning; a complimentary two-hour Manager’s Reception* each evening; two-room suites with a separate living area, private bedroom; and wet bar fitted with a microwave, mini-fridge and coffee maker. Suites are equipped with two 42-inch flat panel high-definition televisions. In addition, the property offers complimentary 24/7 fitness and business centers.
The hotel also has nearly 9,000 square feet of flexible meeting space with a ballroom and state-of-the-art audio visual equipment. Guests can dine onsite at Flying Spoons, Embassy Suites’ own full-service hip casual restaurant. The restaurant will be open 7:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. daily, serving breakfast items, lunch and dinner. In addition, there is an indoor heated swimming pool and whirlpool/hot tub for guests’ year-round enjoyment.
“Our location, conveniently situated off of the All American Freeway and within two miles of Fort Brag, offers ideal proximity for both business and leisure travelers looking for an upscale hotel option,” said Vishal Bhandari, general manager. “We’re excited to open our doors and start welcoming guests.”
