Located in the Alajuela province and inspired by the beauty of simplicity, the 120-room hotel delivers an inviting and seamless experience, positioned to become the destination of choice for travelers to the greater metropolitan area of Costa Rica.

Fairfield by Marriott San Jose Airport Alajuela has opened its doors as a LEED Gold certified hotel, awarded for functioning as a green building that’s ecofriendly and enhances community quality of life by reducing carbon emissions.

“We are thrilled to introduce Fairfield by Marriott to Costa Rica with the opening of Fairfield by Marriott San Jose Airport Alajuela,” said Brian King, President of Marriott’s International Caribbean and Latin America region. “The arrival of this new hotel reinforces our commitment and vision for the region and will complement our existing offerings that encompass 11 of Marriott Bonvoy’s global brands now with a total of 16 hotels in Costa Rica, one of the most popular destinations in the region.”

Located within a five-minute drive from the Juan Santamaria International Airport, shops, restaurants, and the main corporate centers in the northwest of the metropolitan area, Fairfield by Marriott San Jose Airport Alajuela is an ideal base for local entrepreneurs and international business travelers.
