We stayed at the Fairfield July 24-27 for a long weekend away. We arrived earlier than check in and the girls at the front desk were very accommodating – took our luggage to hold and gave directions on a few places to grab lunch. Arrived back a few hours later and finished checking in. Small snafu with the room (we were given keys to a room that was already occupied!) but it was quickly rectified. We stayed in the King Bed Suite with 4 guests. Nice room, clean, appointed well enough. The bed was quite hard in my opinion and the sofa bed was on the smaller side – maybe a full size at best? All requests for extra towels and cups were handled quickly enough. My only complaint about the room is that there are no hooks anywhere to hang up clothes in the bathroom!
The location is great! It is close to everything and within walking distance to many pubs, restaurants, trolley lines. It was about a 15 – 20 minute walk to the Third Ward District and about the same to the Harley Museum. If you don’t want to walk that far, there is a trolley service that runs throughout the day that gets you close to where you want to be! We were able to enjoy Germanfest and Brewfest while in town.
The hotel offers a warm breakfast buffet for its guests. There are plenty of options available however most of it is carb heavy (danishes, waffles, muffins, cereal) with some fresh fruit, powered eggs and a sausage of some sort. The rest of our party enjoyed the breakfast but I’m super picky about my eggs and gluten free so options were slim.
Overall, a great stay! We would stay again!
