Several reviews mentioned room and noise problems here. On our two night stay on an August weekend, we had no complaints on either account. The staff, especially one lady in the breakfast room, were very welcoming and helpful. The biggest problem we found at the Fairfield in is access to and from eastbound New York Avenue, which is 6 lanes, a divided median, and has no direct access to the hotel. We had to turn left at the next street, drive a block, turn around, come back and either turn back right onto NY Ave., or go through the lot of an adjacent hotel to get there. Getting back onto NY Ave to get into downtown DC is equally tricky. I haven't seen this problem mentioned on other reviews, so maybe it's not a big for most guests. Some reviews knocked the neighborhood as …
The front staff were very nice but there seemed to be a lot of people "hanging around" the lobby. The is well kept and gives a nice first impression. Unfortunately the room I stayed in was old and dirty. The picture I included is the dirt caked around the door handle of the closet. It easily could be cleaned but wasn't and this is not after one use. Carpet is old, furniture has been clearly around for quite some time. It is very loud with traffic outside. The Uber driver suggested I not walk outside after dark. In fact, the last day I was here, three police cars ran lights and siren to the hotel. Not sure what the commotion was about. There are plenty options in the area, I will not stay here again.
Front desk staff welcoming and very gracious. Answered our questions and gave us good information. Breakfast staff were also gracious and helpful. We chose this location because it was relatively close to Fedex Field where we attended the Rolling Stones No Filter concert.
We stayed one night at this location but it was very dull and depressing area. Will not stay here again. There are far more better hotels in the vicinity. Marriott is generally great overall but this hotel did not meet our expectations.
This is a clean, comfortable hotel. Very friendly and attentive staff. Excellent free hot breakfast until 10 am. Beds very comfortable. Bathroom was large and very clean. Rates were very fair. Very convenient to the area.
