I've been traveling to the area for a long term project for work since August that will last until the middle of next year.
We had been staying at the Crowne (now Ramada) Plaza but decided to give this Fairfield a try. I'm very glad that we did. Having stayed at many other Marriott brand hotels (including many Fairfields), this one rates as a "better than most" Fairfield. The interior has been completely renovated and, most importantly, is very clean. New bathroom countertops, furniture, etc. The hotel is relatively small, just 3 floors.
Rooms aren't large, but again, good enough for business travelers. Each has a nice sized flat screen LG TV, updated furniture and a comfortable bed. Doors are nice and heavy. Room walls are a bit thin sometimes. If you have a loud neighbor, the sound does come through.
Exercise are has 2up-to-date treadmills and an elliptical. All Lifetime fitness equipment with individual video screens. Room is a bit small so no room for an exercise bike which would be nice. The hotel does supply headphones for use while you exercise too. I didn't use the pool but it looks nice, and there's a hot tub.
Breakfast is typical Fairfield fare. Cereal, microwave breakfast sandwiches, pastries, fruit. Though not a full breakfast like we had at the Crowne, I'd trade that for the updated hotel cleanliness any day. Good enough, and besides, not as fattening.
Only "complaint" I might have is what I've found with other Fairfields. It may just be the way Marriott does things, but the linens don't seem to match the quality of the hotel. I've been at many recently updated Fairfields (in WI, IL, upstate NY, PA, FL) and have noticed that the towels and bed spreads are flat and unimpressive, not matching how nice everything else has been updated. One might expect nice fluffy towels and a big heavy bed spread. Not really a big deal, just an observation, but if an owner might want to standout among other Fairfields that are getting updated, I'd upgrade the linens.
Overall the staff is very helpful, providing that cookies. A nice touch!
Would recommend this place.
