FRANKLIN - Officials in Franklin will Thursday cut the ribbon on a nearly $9 million hotel. The four-story Fairfield by Marriott Inn & Suites Greenwood/Franklin will be managed by Indianapolis-based General Hotels Corp. and create up to 30 jobs.

Ground was broken on the 81-room hotel in the fall of 2017. The hotel is located off I-65 at exit 90 and features 536 square feet of meeting space and amenities, including an indoor swimming pool, fitness center, and valet laundry service.

The ribbon cutting ceremony is being held in conjunction with the Franklin Chamber of Commerce and will be followed by an open house.
