Fairfield Inn & Suites

Fairfield Inn & Suites

Completion date: 2014

Estimated cost: $10 million

The details: When it comes to a planned Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites in north Leavenworth, developer John Ferguson acknowledged that "we had that nice groundbreaking and nothing happened." But work now has started at the site.
The groundbreaking was in late May. Ferguson, president and founder of Ferguson Hotel Group, said the hotel's design is a new prototype. It will be only the third of its kind in the United States. He told Leavenworth city commissioners Tuesday that Marriott requested changes that blew through the budget. Last week, developers were able to get the budget to a point at which it has a little breathing room.

"We should start moving dirt," he said.

Construction should take about 10 months.
