Gordon James Construction of Maple Plain is partnering with Vercon, Inc., an upper-Midwest-based construction company, to construct the new Fairfield Inn & Suites in Detroit Lakes. The 4-story, 69-unit hotel will also include nine top-floor condominiums and a 4,000 square foot restaurant.
The hotel is located on 2.78 acres near the Detroit Lakes City Beach. Providing upscale lodging offerings in that area aligned with the city’s long-range comprehensive plan and would have a positive impact on tourism economy. Several existing buildings have been demolished to make way for the development, including the former Capri Motel.
