Just a few minutes away from downtown Alpharetta, and less than a mile from the Avalon, the five-story, 78,000 square foot Fairfield Inn will feature 166 guest rooms, a fitness room, bike racks, and electrical vehicle charging stations.

Florida-based construction management firm, Firmo Construction, has been hired to build a Fairfield Inn by Marriott in Alpharetta. In partnership with Savannah-based hospitality management and development group, HOS Management, the two companies celebrated the start of the construction process for the new hotel with a groundbreaking ceremony this morning.

Eric Collin, President of Firmo Construction and Krishan Gandhi, VP of Development and Acquisitions of HOS Management, offered brief remarks to the events’ guests, which included President and CEO of Alpharetta Chamber, Deborah Lanham, and the project’s architect, Nitin Patel of Elevate Architecture Studio.

“With the relationships and partnerships we’ve already established with the City of Alpharetta and Alpharetta Chamber, our team is excited to become part of the area and ready to bring our expertise in hospitality construction to this new tourism opportunity,” said Eric Collin. “This hotel will commence our third project with the HOS Management team, and commemorate our first project in the Alpharetta community.”

Bringing decades of experience with the Marriott brand and the hospitality industry, Firmo Construction, HOS Management, and Elevate Architecture Studio, will deliver this Marriott model on Webb Bridge Road, just a few minutes away from downtown Alpharetta and less than a mile from Avalon. The future five-story Fairfield Inn will feature 166 guest rooms, a fitness room, bike racks, and electrical vehicle charging stations. At a little over 78,000 square feet, the structure will be situated on a six-acre lot.

“With HOS’s mission to create welcoming hospitality experiences for all our properties, combined with Firmo’s experience with ground-up hospitality construction, I look forward to opening this hotel to future guests and visitors in the Alpharetta community,” said Krishan Gandhi. “Our team is excited to continue to work with a partner that shares our family-oriented mindset, while expertly navigating the construction process to deliver our vision.”
