“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Stayed here with my wife on a trip to the Ft. Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. Located near the intersection of I-30 and University Dr., this hotel is very convenient to the cultural district with art, history, and science museums and the Will Rogers Coliseum. We were greeted by two very friendly young men, who checked us in very quickly. Even though it is near the highway, the road noise was minimal. The bad point was that the overpass channeled the train noises and whistle right to our window. The room was very clean and well-decorated, but a little crowded with cabinet for microwave and frig, nice desk and chair, chest w/flat screen TV, king bed and side tables, and a reading chair. The bathroom was large and clean with nice fluffy towels. I found the bed too soft but my wife said it was "like sleeping on a cloud" and really liked it. We both disliked the small foam pillows. Although we did not eat in the hotel, we checked out the breakfast area in the morning and it appeared to offer a good selection of fruit, cereals, breads, waffles, and microwave breakfast sandwiches. There are good restaurants within walking distance and fast food and Chili's across the street. Although more expensive than I usually look for, you're paying for a clean, safe, comfortable room, very close to the cultural district and event center. This will be our choice when we are in Fort Worth again.

Room Tip: Request room away from highway.

Thank you for your input regarding your recent visit. While we are fortunate to have a great location with the Cultural District, restaurants, shops and Trinity Trail, we also have the rail yard. While I understand your discomfort with the beds I am glad your wife was in "heaven". We look forward to having you back as guest in the future.

We have been staying at this hotel several times a year for the past 10 years. The rooms are always clean, the breakfast good and the staff friendly. We always stay here during the Stock show and they are booked solid. Still, things run smoothly. They also have an indoor pool and hot tub that the kids enjoy. Bottom line, if you are going to be in Fort Worth going to the zoo, stock show or even TCU, this hotel is the place to stay. It isn't the fanciest in Fort Worth but for the price, it can't be beat!

Room Tip: The rooms on the University side of the hotel have more road noise.

My girls and I went to ck out TCU and I love this hotel. It is super easy to find and easy to get on the freeway. It is slightly away from the College Busy area, which is great to get on freeway. It is located behind a Macaroni Grill, which made it easy to just walk there. Hotel is safe, quiet, super clean rooms, and friendly staff. The beds, linen, carpet, and bathrms were clean. We slept awesome! The continental breakfast helped out tremendously. We woke up late and the Breakfast employee just pulled out some food for us and made us feel at home. THe A/C works great in the rooms. If my kid gets accepted at TCU, I am going to call this place home for our visits.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2011

Wife and I stayed there with two grandkids (girls) March 12 -- a little getaway to start Spring break. Our must have annemnities included two queens, indoor pool and hot tub, and breakfast. I got a pretty decent rate via AAA discount, about $95 after tax, for a standard 2-queen room. Parking is free. The room included a microwave & refrig. All staff were very pleasant.
Let me say, Hilton properties are our first choice in hotels but Marriott is the dominant brand in the 76107 zip area we wanted to be around. We were quite pleased with this Fairfield property. The hotel looked like it was recently remodeled. The quality of annemnitiies for the price was quite competative with a Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn Express. If you're wanting to do Fort Worth's Trinity Trails, I don't think you can find better access. I did a run there in the afternoon -- the big HOT tub with strong jets was just what I needed to recoup for the evening. Hilton still has superior beds, but all else at this Fairfield met or exceeded our expectatations for this stay.
We would definitely recommend this hotel for similar outings as ours, and will probably return when we want to spend the evening in the Forest Park area of Ft. Worth.

Overpriced hotel with active train tracks and expressway exit ramps out front, Macaroni Grill in front for your outstanding culinary needs, surly staff, broken equipment in the fitness center, old outdated room accomodations and - did I mention - totally overpriced i pay less for quality in Europe

I really liked this hotel. It was very close to downtown in what seemed like a decent area. The price was also good too. The breakfast in the morning, which is complementry, was also very good. They have TEXAS shaped waffels, cereal, fruit, OJ, etc... An indoor pool and hot tub, didn't use them, but they looked nice. We had zero problem with noise, even though train tracks and the freeway are close by.

The hotel is also right on the Trinity River, which has a 28 mile hike & bike path attached to it. It was really nice to be able to run with some scenery and not on the treadmill.

I'd stay here again for sure.

My son and I stayed at Fairfield Inn near TCU in Ft. Worth for an academic competition held at TCU. The hotel was filled with kids attending the competition and it was still quiet and comfortable. The hotel was clean, everything worked, quiet, plenty of space and very comfortable. Macaroni Grill is across the parking lot. My son used the fitness center and liked it. Breakfast included was ok.
