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

First, this is the only hotel in town. Fairly new and the rooms reflect that. Extremely clean. I had a room on 1st floor, at the end of the hall. Thought it might be noisy but exit door was one way out so not a problem. Bed fairly comfy, shower excellent. Air treatment in room was very quiet and controlled... More

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.

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.

Checking into the room was less than pleasant and professional, I was not given information re: parking, hotel... 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.
