I would absolutely recommend the inn. The hotel was clean, staff was friendly and accommodating, breakfast was delicious with lots of variety. Waterfront location is very scenic, and convenient to both downtown New Bedford and Fairhaven.

I really liked the interior decorations in this hotel. A lot of thought and care has gone into selection of the colors and materials for the carpets, corridors, and the rooms. The colors are very appealing. Everything is done in good taste. The people at the front desk were extremely helpful and friendly. One employee at the front desk went... More

Stopped by New Bedford to visit the Whaling Museum. Very close to the museum, a very easy walk. There are many restaurants for lunch or dinner nearby. I'm usually a Hampton Inn guy in this class of hotels, but the breakfast here was better than I've had in most Hamptons. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very... More

Staff was very friendly, rooms were very clean and neat. We had a suite with a king size bed. Suite was a little small as far as suites go, but it was fine for what we needed. Everything was immaculate. Staff said hello to us every time they saw us. No one was exasperated when I asked a myriade of... More

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.
