My friend and I stayed at the Fairfield Inn during Columbus Day weekend 2013. The stay was uncomfortable. When we arrived and attempted to check in, we could not find any staff. We had to ask dining staff and tavern staff to find someone to check us in. We also ordered a cheese platter and a bottle of wine to be in our room upon arrival. When we got in our room there was neither. We received a knock on the door 2.5 hours later with the cheese plate but not the bottle of wine. It is unclear if that was an honest mistake. We had a coffee maker in the room, but no coffee, no filters, or stirrers. We also found a white towel with a large red stain. Although it may not be blood, it was alarming. The inn posts a nice brunch; however, when we went down to brunch it was empty and there were no sign of staff. The only staff member that we did see was the house keeper throughout the stay. It was not all it was published to be.
