Hilton Garden Inn opened a decade ago as Fairfield’s only full-service hotel and has such touches as banquet rooms that can seat several hundred people, a lobby with a wood-panel fireplace and Ahi’s restaurant. It gives Fairfield the type of hotel close to Interstate 80 that can attract various types of conventions and meetings. It is also the site for local functions ranging from Solano Economic Development Corp. breakfasts to Soroptimist meetings to Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce events. Director of Sales Christian Wentworth said customer satisfaction surveys rated the local Hilton Garden Inn fourth in customer service for the northwest region, from California into Canada. He credits the hotel’s success to its staff and to its location near the Solano Town Center mall, about 18 restaurants and local spa. “People can park their car, walk out the front door and get anything they need as far as food and shopping and exercise,” he said.
