We chose this hotel since it was close to the airport and since we had a 6am flight, the closer the better. The staff was great and very accommodating. Our early departure meant that weren't able to try their breakfast. Room was nice and clean... Slept like a rock on the comfy bed until the alarm rang at 3am...

I have stayed at this property previously in 2009 for an extended stay and the service, food and location were all excellent. The hotel is clean and very well kept. While the location hasn't changed over the years, I feel that the service was a bit lacking. I opted to use the pre-check in capability on the Marriott App on...

I stayed here for business, and was wowed by the service. When I arrived, I requested a top-floor room away from noise. No problem. When I got to my room, I got a phone call from the front desk asking if the accommodations were to my liking. I've even stayed at 4-star and 5-star hotels, and this question has never...

This hotel was like a lot of others of the same category. It was clean and comfortable. The staff were very pleasant and helpful which is not always the case at similar hotels. The AC worked very well. The breakfast bar offered hot items as well as pastries and cereals. There is a coin laundry room and gym available. The...

It's a standard Fairfield hotel. Very clean newer style interior. Decent workout room with working equipment. A bit pricy for a Fairfield, you could actually stay on the beach for about the same price. Staff has a great welcoming attitude.

I stay in a lot of hotels on business and this particular one was slightly disappointing. The lobby was nice as was the staff but the rooms were small and stuffy. They were extremely plain for the very high price.

I was very impressed with this hotel from start to finish! As soon as I checked into my hotel room I had a courtesy call asking if everything was to my liking.

The front desk was more than helpful at check in, they even smiled. I've stayed at lots of hotels and usually takes a lot to impress me but the staff was very nice.
