Excellent all around stay-clean new property with excellent staff at all levels from manager to front desk to breakfast staff. Perfectly situated for any one's visit to New Bedford-do not even think about staying elsewhere. An excellent Marriott on all levels.

Our stay at the Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites was very enjoyable. We were greeted by a very warm and friendly front desk staff. They offered me a senior discount (over 62 y/o) and upgraded us to a suite. The room was clean and comfortable. We'd stay again.

The Resident Inn in New Bedford staff was very friendly and the rooms were large with everything you would want in a Resident Inn. While there I was working a 12 hour on and 12 hour off shift so I would arrive bac at the hotel at around noon to get some sleep. I had requested that my room be... More

We stayed here when the hotel first opened a few years ago and loved it then. We then states here again this past weekend and loved it again! The rooms, pool and breakfast area is very clean. The hotel is in a great location very close to Cape Cod and across the street from a great restaurant.

I prefer Marriott properties for both business and personal travel. Up until my recent visit to New Bedford, I had never-ever encountered a less than super friendly and professional person employed by any Marriott ever. I finally encountered one in New Bedford. Checking into the room was less than pleasant and professional, I was not given information re: parking, hotel... More

I am in the process of sharing your concerns with the appropriate teams so that we can make sure that we meet and exceed your expectation. Thank you for recognizing... More

Newer and well maintained Fairfield Inn and Suites. Great location. Great views and close to awesome restaurants. Five minutes from the interstate yet a world away. Pleasant desk and breakfast staff. Nice indoor pool and hot tub, decent fitness center. Easy parking. Much better than average.

We stayed 2 nights on a busy week-end. Hotel is situated close to downtown so you can walk to many bars and restaurants. Property is surrounded on all sides by streets and highway so there is no green space outside only parking lot. It is across the street from a working harbor that has many fishing boats. This is a...

Hotel is located in an industrial area, close to the highway and about 45 minutes from Cape Cod. Rooms are a nice size and clean. One of the beds in our room was sunken in so not the most comfortable couple of nights of sleep. Staff is friendly and check-in and check-out were quick. Breakfast had a selection of individually...

If you are willing to pay extra for a room with harbor view, this hotel is quite nice. Rooms on the other side suffer from street noise. What you get for your money is good chain hotel standard. Nice room, friendly staff and mediocre breakfast.
