New hotels open in Moscow and help accommodate the backed-up demand

MOSCOW, ID - When it comes to football season on the Palouse, finding a hotel room to stay in can be more difficult that finding a ticket to one of the games.

A new hotel recently opened in Moscow to help accommodate that demand. The new Fairfield Inn and Suites in Moscow has a total of 74 rooms, but they said they're already booked up for some of season's busiest weekends.

"We are looking forward to football season, and we are sold out this weekend, and we're looking forward to Dad's weekend for WSU and
U of I," said Moscow Fairfield Inn and Suites General Manager Sara Raquet.

The hotel has a couple rooms left for the University of Idaho's Homecoming Weekend, but they're already booked up for Mom's Weekend at Washington State University in the spring. The Hotel opened its doors to the community Tuesday night for an open house, that lasted till 6:00.
