Oxford is a Mississippian town that attracts many visitors on fall weekends. Those who are willing to explore Oxford for a week or longer can stay at the newly built Towne Place Suites by Marriott Hotel on Ed Perry Boulevard, just across the street from Oxford Conference Center. TownePlace Suites had its ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday, Dec. 9th at 3:30 p.m.
Towne Place Suites has opened this past September but yesterday afternoon it had a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Several notable people were in attendance: Governor Phil Bryant, Miss Mississippi USA Courtney Byrd and Ole Miss football tight end Evan Engram, to name a few. Those in attendance signed congratulations to hotel’s owner, Chan Patel, on the cut red ribbon.
Chan Patel said, “I’m glad to have this hotel open. It has been open for three months but I’m glad to celebrate this. Now people can stay longer in Oxford.”
Towne Place Suites offers many amenities for a long term stay. The hotel has 95 suites that are designed for week-long or more stays. However they can be rented for one night or a weekend’s stay when needed. These suites have a dishwasher, a dining table for four and an oven with a microwave as well as all cooking utensils provided. The guests can cook their meals in the kitchen provided with a full-size refrigerator.
Patel custom designed the hotel, upscaling from Marriott’s minimum requirement. The hotel has an outdoor patio with a fire pit and several grills for outdoor cooking as well as a heated pool with an exercise room. The sizable lobby also has three large televisions and the hotel is the first property with a bar franchise-wise.
Its proximity to Oxford Conference Center is positive for Oxford. More clients may be interested in booking events and conferences at the OCC due to newly-available extended stays. Visit Oxford sees this as a boon.
Mary Allen Hedges said, “We have a great partnership with Patel. He is the driving force with tourism in Oxford and we’ll make sure those hotel rooms are filled.”
Visit Oxford has a plan to boost tourism for the city. A crucial part of the plan is to provide more hotels to accommodate the visitors in the fall and spring with intention to attract more visitors to enjoy Oxford in January and February, too.
