“Great new Fairfield Inn (NYC)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

This Fairfield Inn is a wonderful option for trips to New York City. The hotel is easy to drive to and they offer reasonable parking right at the hotel. There is no need to park in a lot or ramp separate from the hotel. I have stayed at the hotel twice and the hotel staff has been wonderful and accomodating. By not staying right in Manhattan, you can save a lot of money and it is only one block to the subway station for easy access to the City. I travel significantly for work and stay at Mariott properties whenever possible. I would highly recommend this hotel to other travelers visiting New York City.

We stayed here for 4 nights and were very impressed with the quality of the hotel. Staff were very helpful and polite, the rooms were nicely furnished & spotless (hotel is practically brand new). You can sometimes hear the subway cars but we actually found it quite soothing (certainly quieter than any Manhattan hotel!)
As tourists, we were not sure about the location of the hotel at first, but with a Metrocard we could catch the subway and be in Manhattan in 20 minutes. There are 2 stations nearby - 39th Ave and Queens plaza.
The immediate location around the hotel may not seem brilliant, but we always felt very safe and the area is undergoing a lot of regentrification.
I would score the hotel highly on value for money, especially compared to Manhattan hotels. The complimentary breakfast was also a big plus.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor for the best views

This small, but lovely hotel was staffed by friendly and efficient personnel who not only "go the extra mile" but are also efficient and businesslike. The front desk staff ( Jo, Jasmine, Terrance...to name a few) and the breakfast attendents, Jessy and LIsa) as well as an operations Manager Curtis) made me feel like I was at home! The only drawback was lack of food service for lunch and dinner, but I was out every day and most all evenings...so for me it was perfect.

Room Tip: Rooms on upper floors have fantastic view of the City!

Adressing some prior issues cited in reviews: This hotel is not in Manhattan, granted, but it is just off the access to the Queensboro Bridge on the Long Island City end, and less that two blocks from the subway. The lobby, rooms and whole property are up to date and clean, with a modern feel and while the breakfast was crowded, the staff kept up.

It is hard to find owing to surrounding one way streets - the hotel will give you specifics if you call, but even these can be bit confusing. It's a straight two blocks from the Queens Plaza subway and about that to the 39th Street stop (Queensboro Plaza stop is further away).

It was the closest level 5 Marriott to downtown, with 10-15 minutes subway rides to midtown stops.

And from the looks of construction (across the street, though no noise on a long holiday weekend) the area may be on the verge of gentrification, at least in terms of businesses).

Room Tip: If the construction is still going on, you might want to ask for an upper floor or to face away from...

This is the place you end up when you try to redeem a Marriott reward night - Marriott has put all Manhattan properties, no matter what quality level, off limits to its card holders for the annual reward night.
The new Fairfield Inn has comfortable rooms but its desolate location is a distinct drawback. It is close to the 39th Avenue N and Q station (you can hear the trains rumble from your room). While breakfast is included, don't bother and take the train up to Jackson Height/Elmhurst for lots of great options. The hotel had a sign that showed the "waiting time" for different breakfast hours - a green/orange/red scale that was as off-putting as it was insulting (only the very early hours promised a non-wait breakfast). Why not work on improving the situation instead of posting such a stupid sign? In any case, if you like your morning meal, better not to bother at all.
The good staff is prompt and courteous and there is nothing wrong with the rooms: a comfortable bed, good shower, nice TV.

Just returned from a wonderful 4 day visit! I read previous reviews before deciding to book this hotel and I'm very happy with my decision. I was with 6 other family members and they were happy as well! This hotel is a $15 taxi ride or $2.75 subway ride(1block away from hotel) to Midtown Manhattan. Subway is very easy... Take E train to Penn Station, Soho, World Trade Center & more!

The hotel is located in an area just over Queensboro bridge. Not much going on, (reason for 3 on location) but it looks like an upcoming area. It's CLEAN and offers a continental breakfast of Bagels, Muffins, Toast, Fruit, Yogurt, Cereal, & Make-it-yourself Waffles. Coffee/Tea/Hot Chocolate avail 24/7. This was fine for me as I ventured out to other areas for brunch and finer dining anyway.

The front desk and staff throughout the hotel were very warm & friendly. There is a small bar in lobby area, the bartender Terrence offers outstanding 4 star customer service!!! He's very informative goes above and beyond to provide quality service. This hotel is very lucky to have him in my opinion. Thank you!!

Overall, I enjoyed my stay & best part is paying half price of Manhattan hotels!!!

We stayed 2 nights in Fairfield Inn in Feb 2014. We are happy with our stay there.
Pros:
1. short distance to Manhattan by subway, 5 minutes shuttle ride from Hotel to Subway then 15 minute train ride to Times Square,
2. clean room, clean bathroom with sufficent bathing supplies
3. good breakfasts, lots of food variety, sufficient tables to accomodate guests
4. good shuttle service to and from the 33rd street subway. Shuttle schedule is frequent, runs every 30 minutes
5. helpful staff. Willing to answer questions and show us the way to avoid traffic when we check out
Cons:
1. The hotel is located in an industrial area, with no resturants or retail stores around.
2. Insufficient under-ground parking spaces. There are only parking spaces for 8 to 9 cars, but there are free parkings on the streets nearby

Overall we are very satisfied with our stay in Fairfield Inn at Long Island. The price is good for a hotel which is close to Manhattan. We will certainly return if we come to NYC again.

Room Tip: 7 days unlimited MetroCard costs $30 ppl. We did not buy it. Instead we buy 1 reloadable MetroCard f...
