Officials of Shaner Hotels, an award winning, international hotel owner, operator and developer, today announced the opening of the 123-room Fairfield Inn & Suites Harrisburg. Owned and operated by Shaner Hotels, the hotel is located on land leased from the Susquehanna Area Regional Airport Authority (SARAA), a joint-municipal authority that operates four regional airports.

"With the opening of the Fairfield Inn & Suites Harrisburg, arriving and departing Harrisburg International Airport (HIA) travelers now have convenient, brand new accommodations adjacent to the gates," said Timothy Edwards, HIA executive director. "No longer will visitors have to travel nearly ten miles for a place to stay. Not only does this make life more convenient for travelers, but it also improves the practicality of the airport itself."

"Our portfolio now includes four hotels in Central Pa., and we maintain an active pipeline with additional projects in the area, including a project in Mechanicsburg that we plan to break ground on shortly," added Lance Shaner, chairman and CEO. "Beyond sharing best practices and economies of scale, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Harrisburg will benefit from its proximity to the airport, literally connected to the airport terminals via walkway, as well as the fact that it is the first Marriott-branded hotel near the airport."

Situated just steps from HersheyPark, Hershey's Chocolate World, the PSU Hershey Medical Center, downtown Harrisburg and Pen State Harrisburg Campus, the four-story hotel is located adjacent to the Harrisburg International Airport (HIA). Hotel amenities include on-site laundry, fitness room, business center and 1,600 square feet of meeting space. As with all Fairfield Inn & Suites, guests are invited to enjoy a daily, complimentary breakfast, as well as a lobby lounge and full-service bar that offers a wide array of drinks and small bites food menu.

"We continue to have an aggressive, yet measured, appetite to grow our international portfolio of select- and full-service hotels located in key markets with strong demand generators and high barriers to entry," said Plato Ghinos, Shaner president. "The Fairfield Inn & Suites Harrisburg is a prime example of the type of location we seek: a regional airport that serves nearly 1.2 million people annually with nearby business, leisure and educational outlets. We are confident the hotel quickly will become the market leader for Harrisburg-area visitors."

HIA serves central Pennsylvania, making it the state's third busiest airport. All major airlines have hub locations at the airport, including non-stop international flights to Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Additionally, FedEx and UPS have extensive facilities at the airport, which also serves as a take-off/landing practice runway for Air Force One.
