Partner Spotlight – Fairfield Inn & Suites, Leavenworth


Fairfield Inn & Suites in Leavenworth, Kansas is selected as the CGSC Foundation Corporate Partner for June 2017.

The relationship between the CGSC Foundation and the Fairfield was established in 2014 when the hotel opened.

“When the Fairfield opened in 2014, they were the first hotel to open in Leavenworth since 1976,” said Doug Tystad, CGSC Foundation CEO. “From the Foundation’s perspective it has been a great addition to the community because of the number of visitors we need to accommodate throughout the year. We’ve found the hotel and current manager Michael Watson and his staff very easy to work with. It should also be noted they are an award-winning hotel. – They were presented with the Marriott Corporation award for Best Opening in 2015 and their management has received awards as well.”

Tystad added that participants coming in from around the country for the National Security Roundtable programs, attendees of the annual Ethics Symposiums, visiting diplomats and other Simons Center visitors all stay at the Fairfield.

“Our board members like to stay there too,” Tystad said, “and we’ve also used their meeting rooms for meetings such as our brainstorming session last year and for our Covey planning sessions. It’s been a real partnership. Not only do they support our need for accommodations, they’ve been a sponsor of our annual Celebration of International Friendship and also support our monthly walk and talk program with their courtesy van, which is key to getting our visitors on and off post easily.”
