Oskaloosa’s newest hotel held a ribbon-cutting Thursday (9/10). The Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott is located at Highway 92 near Highway 163. Oskaloosa Mayor David Krutzfeldt gives the hotel a five star review.
“I’m very, very pleased with what I’m seeing. I think it makes a tremendous welcome for anyone who is traveling to Oskaloosa and the surrounding area. They talk about having 76 rooms in it. Since this is a new hotel, all the folks who were staying away from Oskaloosa, now there’s 76 rooms worth of capacity that we have here. So I think it’s going to make a tremendous impact (on the local economy).”
Fairfield Inn and Suites also has meeting space and an indoor swimming pool. Swift Hospitality Group of Freeport, Illinois is operating the hotel.
