MCLEAN, Va.—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. 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 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.
Manish Mehta, principal, MBM Hospitality LLC, said, "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."
The hotel also has nearly 9,000 square feet of flexible meeting space with a ballroom and state-of-the-art audio visual equipment. Flying Spoons, Embassy Suites' own full-service hip casual restaurant is also included. In addition, there is an indoor heated swimming pool and whirlpool/hot tub.
"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."
