“My impression is that this is an older facility, which has been faithfully updated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We stayed at the Fairfield 2 nights. The lobby and all is standard Fairfield, breakfast bar, and lobby eating/lounging area. The room was a king room. The bed was perfect for me, a little soft for my companion. I slept well. The room was nice enough. Walking down the hall, had a glimpse into a service area, with the door left open. The service area was in need of some serious maintenance. All in all, the stay was just fine, normal. Not as luxurious as the more pricey Marriott brands, but good enough.

Close to the freeway and a very fast drive into downtown Ann Arbor (about 10 minutes or less depending). All the amenities and such that one would expect, nice staff. Very comfy bed! The breakfast was the usual in these types of places, and there was a little store in the lobby for anything extra. Didn't have time to use the pool, but it looked nice and people seemed to be enjoying it.

Business trip and honestly I prefer Courtyard Marriott due to the Starbucks, but this property had everything but that so I just stopped around the corner to the courtyard for my coffee! No problem!
It was about $20 per night cheaper so my colleague decided on this property.

My wife and I were visiting our daughter at UM. Checkin was fast and friendly. Room is clean. Nice common area, pool and exercise room (two treadmills, one orbital and some free weights). Didn't eat the free breakfast at the hotel because the hotel is close to Zingerman's bakery (a msut stop!!!). Easy access to mall and campus.

The hotel is well located if you are driving to visit the university. The room was okay and the check in desk personnel were all very helpful.

Quiet location but there are several other hotels in walking distance that I would check out as well.

We stayed at this Fairfield on the way to the Detroit airport. Hotel was clean; reception staff was friendly. Location within the city was good for us - close to the highway but far enough away. We saw lots of noisy teens in the hallways yet our room (in the middle of the hallway) was quiet.

Breakfast was a little disappointing. Not much selection (not even powdered hot chocolate). But we did manage to get full, so I guess it is ok.

Internet service was excellent - and included. This is starting to matter more and more - maybe more than breakfast.

The hotel may be hard for some to locate. One must drive through/past other hotels to arrive. Don't let this deter you, but be forwarned if you are arriving in darkness.

One more item - our room included a sink in the main area, not in the bathroom. This was perfect for us (traveling with a teenaged girl!) but might not be ideal for others.
