Residence Inn Fayetteville Celebrates Renovation with Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

The Residence Inn by Marriott Fayetteville Cross Creek, NC, celebrated its extensive renovation with a ribbon-cutting event on Tuesday, April 16, 2024. The property, located at 1468 Skibo Road, debuted its significant upgrades surrounded by community guests and local business leaders.

The hotel team at the Residence Fayetteville Cross Creek hosted the event with a mystery theme, transforming attendees into detectives for an interactive adventure. Dressed in character, the hotel staff handed out game cards with clues and led guests through the newly renovated spaces in search of hidden clues. This innovative approach turned the exploration of the property into a lively and memorable experience.

Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, the hotel hosted a Chamber networking event, fostering connections within the local business community. Esteemed speakers included Nat Robertson, CEO and President of the Greater Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce; Cumberland County Commissioner, Veronica Jones; VP of Sales and Marketing for LBA Hospitality, Judy Cluck; and hotel General Manager, Rose Rodriguez.

“It was truly special to see our community come together to explore what we’ve been working on here,” said General Manager Rose Rodriguez. “The recent renovations really brought a buzz to the hotel. People weren’t just observing; they were connecting, sharing stories and business cards—really engaging with one another. It’s moments like these that remind me why we do what we do. It’s all about people coming together.”

Owned by Flynn Properties, Inc., the renovated hotel boasts four stories and 92 suites, each equipped with a full kitchen, making it ideal for extended stays. Unique features such as an indoor heated pool and sports court set this property apart, alongside its proximity to key locations like Ft. Liberty, historic downtown Fayetteville, the Airborne & Special Operations Museum, and more.

As a proud partner of the Chamber of Commerce, Fayetteville CVB, and Military Affairs Council, the Residence Inn Fayetteville/Cross Creek continues to serve extended-stay guests, local businesses, military personnel, healthcare workers, and visitors to Fayetteville State University.
