An upscale Courtyard Marriott incorporating Marriott’s latest design is going up on West Jackson Avenue, on the east side of the walking path.

The hotel is expected to open in August 2014, just prior to the start of football season.

“The hotel will include a garden roof, complete with grass lawn, trees and plantings creating a unique setting for receptions, weddings and other events that will overlook the campus,” said James L. (Lee) Stafford of West Point, chairman of Oxford Lodging LLC.

Bruce Patel, president of Oxford Lodging, LLC, and Mr. Stafford are involved in numerous other hotels in north Mississippi.

Mr. Stafford, owner of Fusion Hospitality, will oversee construction and management of the hotel.

The hotel will be a 121-room Courtyard by Marriott, featuring eight, two story loft suites and an indoor pool –– Jim Roberts, staff writer,
