In fairness, I like the room, the hotel in general, the staff, and the location. It's literally minutes from Buttermilk Falls State Park and every amenity you could possibly need. The pool is nicer than it photographs (very nice, good temperature). For that, I give the hotel a 4 or 5 out of 5. Downside: we are a family of... More

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel and I am glad to hear that most of your stay was acceptable. I apologize that you were disturbed by the guest laundry room. I wish you had informed the front desk sooner so we could have asked the other guest to wait until later the next day to finish their... More

We went to Ithaca for a college visit and decided to stay at the Marriott Fairfield Inn since it was close to the college. Its a new hotel with the same layout as other Fairfield Inn's we've stayed in. The front deck employees were very nice and helpful. The rooms are a decent size with 2 large beds, flat screen... More

As other reviewers have written, this hotel is a newer property and it shows: very nice rooms and decor, nice lobby, helpful staff. We had a very nice stay here. The only problem is that apparently there's a nearby house with a wood-burning stove or open fire pit (the hotel backs up on a hill), and this meant that we... More

I reserved a King Suite for a two-day stay, and made sure that the room was guaranteed with a credit card for late arrival. After driving all day from northern Ontario, we arrived and were offered a handicapped room with a king bed. No suite, no workspace, the small shower required you to sit to take a shower. After complaining,... More

I am sorry that you were dissasitisfied with your ADA accessible room. We are set up to accomodate those with disabilities and this requires that we have a certain percentage of rooms for that purpose. On high volume nights this means that guests who did not request ADA rooms will be placed in them. We were able to put you... More

Stayed at this quite new hotel several times. Ithaca is still, sadly, somewhat economically depressed, but the positive influence of Cornell's hotel management school just a couple of miles away can be assumed in the excellent performance here. This Fairfield has always proved meticulously clean and comfortable, with very nice staff-- quite a few exceeding expectations in their willingness to... More

A nice, new hotel with all the amenities you expect from a modern place. Free breakfast, lots of plugs for charging, plasma TV, and a nice business center. The best part about staying here is the shuttle van, which will take you just about anywhere you want to go in Ithaca, including the brewery down the street. Or the Purity... More

Our stay was excellent in every way. The staff was very pleasant and professional. On check in, the clerk at the front desk was busy with another guest, but the General Manager immediately came out of his office and took care of us. I noted that they were very helpful in directing guests, including us, to restaurants and areas of... More

My husband and I have been coming to Ithaca every year for the last four years moving our daughter back and forth to college from Massachusetts. We have had to stay at hotels twice each year, never staying at the same one twice. So, out of 8 hotels in Ithaca, we recently stayed at the BEST and trust me, have... More

Stayed here with my family of five while we were exploring the Ithaca area. The hotel is nice and new. We had a room with two queen beds and a pull out couch which was very spacious. The location was good and close to many of the parks and falls and the breakfast was nice. My husband made the reservations,... More
