General manager Nuwan Jayasena now hopes the change will help to attract new guests to the hotel, which also has a business centre, six meeting rooms and free high-speed wi-fi.
Fairview director Neil Forbes said Ipswich is a very important market for then company and added: "We are delighted to be able to recognise and thank our guests for choosing to stay with us at Novotel Ipswich by investing in this hotel and we hope to continue providing the highest levels of hospitality."
The changes will be unveiled at a cocktail party between 5.30pm and 8pm on Thursday, December 5, where Ipswich mayor Jan Parry will cut the ribbon.
