“Weekend Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Great hotel for the money with nice breakfast. You can walk to Circle Center without going outside. The staff was friendly and profesional several restaurants are close. Right across from museum and close to zoo. We had a very nice relaxing weekend!

Hotel is located directly behind the JW Marriott. There are also a couple of other Marriott brand hotels at the same location. There is a TGI Friday's in front of the Fairfield Inn & Suites. Self parking is located below the hotel for $23 a night. You are about 2 blocks away from most of the restaurants and shopping downtown. This hotel was for a business trip. It had free wi-fi unlike the JW, which charged a daily fee. There is also free breakfast off the lobby and was adequate, but nothing fancy. I've stayed at the JW in front of it before and I honestly didn't feel the extra money for the JW was worth it. The room at the Fairfield was clean and the staff was friendly. If you are there for pleasure you are right across the street from the baseball field and within walking distances of museums and the zoo. I would definitely stay here again if looking for a budget friendly hotel in downtown Indy.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor on the Victory Field side.

This hotel is part of the Marriott center in downtown Indianapolis. It is very convenient and nice. It is well priced compared to the other locations in downtown. The staff was extremely friendly. I had to complain that the guests next door was making too much noise for me to sleep and the manager immediately came up and fixed it. There is a TGIF in this hotel which is convenient for eating lunch and dinner because it never really gets very busy as it it out of the way unless staying at the hotel.

One of the nicest rooms I've ever stayed in. It's relatively new, of course, and that helps. But my king room was beautifully appointed and very well lit. The bathroom was fabulous! Spacious with good lighting and a beautiful glass door, tiled walk-in shower.

The room is a bit small (not the bathroom part), but unless you're going to be spending hours and hours in it, it doesn't matter. Spotlessly clean from corners to shower. I was very impressed.
Very quiet. I was close to the elevators but never heard a peep from hallway or neighbors.

From check in to check out, the staff was friendly, helpful and very responsive. Free breakfast was typical, but good and satisfactory offering something for every appetite.

Room Tip: If you want a room with a view, ask for one on the street side of the hotel.

This is a nice, clean hotel with a very pleasant staff. It is within walking distance of all of the major downtown tourist and business locations. The breakfast offered many choices - cereal, hard boiled eggs, waffles, yogurt, fresh fruit, Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches. Coffee, tea, packets of hot cocoa mix, and packets of spicy cider mix are all available in the lobby 24 hours a day. There is no extra charge for wi-fi access or for breakfast.

Parking is $23-$27 per day(self-park or valet), but if you do not have a car, this hotel is right on the city bus route to and from the airport. I did not utilize the exercise room, but it appeared to be well-stocked.

The only negative comment I would have would be that the size of the room is small, but, when you are sleeping, the size of the room does not matter.

This hotel room was available in January of 2013 for a bid of $42 per night as a 2.5* hotel on Priceline. At that price, I would unhestitatingly recommend the hotel.
