We travel to this area several times a year and have stayed different places, some good and some not. We have never really found a place that we all said we will stay again until now on.. This is a great hotel for a family. The rooms are very clean, spacious and equipped with everything you could need. The pool,... More

The wife and I were attending a family members 60 birthday party and didn't want to drive back to Rhode Island after it, so I booked a room at Fairfield. It being only 2 miles away from the restaurant made it a great choice, but the accommodations made it a awesome choice! The free breakfast and the great staff just... More

This hotel is very close to the historic part of the city, an easy walk to the Whaling Museum and other New Bedford attractions. Good place for family vacation stay. It's also a decent hotel with comfortable beds and a decent breakfast selection.

Overall, this is a very nice hotel. The staff are very helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the location is great for this area. My biggest issue is that they don't enforce the no-smoking policy effectively. That's the reason I marked low scores for cleanliness, sleep quality, and rooms. My colleagues and I have issues weekly with cigarette... More

Very comfortable bed, clean, good service. Breakfast unremarkable. Gym and pool are small, but nice enough. Good place to stay for business or family. Close to town and wharf. Good, easy walking distance to several great restaurants. No fridge, which was surprising for a hotel of this caliber.
