I stayed here for a few days while attending a conference at Ft. Bragg.
The hotel is pretty new, so the design and rooms are very nice. They are of a decent size, are well appointed, and the beds are comfortable. It is a standard TownePlace Suites.
I actually stayed in two types of rooms. One was two queens (might have been large full size), the other was a king. Both rooms are similarly sized, but the difference is the King had a large desk and storage area. If you dont need the second bed, I would recommend the king.
The kitchen has nice appliances, and the staff was great in clearing my dishes and running the dishwasher. It was a big help.
Breakfast was continental with the standard waffle machine. They have 24 hour coffee which is AWESOME (hello other Marriott brand hotels? – stop doing away with lobby coffee!). They also have Otis Spunkmeyer cookies in the early evening. Cant complain about that. Front desk staff was nice, and went out of their way to help where they could.
Overall everything was pretty good.
Now on to the cons:
Location is ok. It is located in a semi-seedy area of Fayetteville. It is right next to a Sam's Club and Wal Mart, which the crowd in the general area make it a little uncomfortable to walk around alone at night. There are several restaurants in the area like O'Charley's, Logan's, and Ryan's (I will post a separate review on Ryan's - avoid that place) - as well as a Sonic across the highway, so the location isn't all bad.
The fitness center has two treadmills and an elliptical. If you are into working out, don't go here. As nice as the hotel is, they really skimped on the equipment. There are no weights, and the equipment is some off brand and cheap. Your fitness routine will suffer here.
Parking is horrible. There isn’t anywhere really good to park as compared to the location of the doors. The designers of the hotel really screwed up on that one. If you go here, you will see. There are three doors up front, one in the back by the pool – and no registration parking – so you are going to be either blocking traffic, or lugging bags a long way.
They have free internet, but it is EXTREMELY slow. If you need to download a large file, it will take some time, as well as connectivity can be a bit choppy.
Final con is that it’s Fayetteville! The average price of this place is over $150 per night. I would say if you are on any kind of budget at all, you would do better at other chain hotels in town.
Final note - in the king room I was by one of the elevators. Avoid that at all costs! The elevators are extremely noisy in this place!!
I don't mean to sound so negative about this hotel, but it is new and when the big stuff such as cleanliness and amenities are not an issue, it is easier to focus on the little things.
Overall, the hotel is nice, but misses the mark on some of the little things. However, I would still recommend this place if you don’t mind spending the money, and don’t have a strict fitness routine!
