So first the good…. Excellent location, free parking. I was dropped off early and came in to check my suitcase and was told my room was ready and could check in. For someone expecting to waste time downtown that was a real bonus! The bad… the room I was checked into had possibly the worst view I’ve had in a while. A brick wall to one side and the dirty ceiling of the neighboring building to the other. Knowing the hotel wasn’t full and getting a view so poor was pretty disappointing. I’m a bonvoy member so I would have appreciated a decent view/room. If I had had even a mediocre view it would have been 5 stars.

It’s fine…stains on lampshades and curtains make it feel not clean. Right in downtown Keene..so walkable. Weird garage parking with specific places to park you can’t get to since it’s under construction & can’t park on street over night. It fine but not great..cool concept in old building that could be so much better if they updated rooms to be less banged up.

The parent hotel chain has not come back to pre covid standards. Overall, the hotel is expensive for what you get. After this stay I decided to drop Marriott from my hotel chain of choice. The hotel is a retrofitted brownstone-type building. There was no one thing that made this stay so so, it was just not what we expected from a Marriott property

This is a lovely hotel in an amazing location that won’t break the bank. What a surprisingly charming little hotel! Though this hotel is amazing, it’s value is in its staff. We were in town for a funeral and the kindness and care we were treated with was above and beyond the norm! From the daytime counter lady, the lovely Ms Bonnie to the hardworking Manager Michael they really went above an beyond to accommodate. They even went so far and to put my daughter (who flew in from another country where she is a student) and her fiancé (that she doesn’t get to see while she is in school) in a lovely room with an amazing view. I will end with their are no words to express my gratitude to them for making a horrible situation as pleasant as possible.

I liked the thought of staying in a hotel in a historic building. As others have mentioned you need to lug your suitcases up and down stairs from the parking lot. The room was fine but we had to call the front desk as the air conditioning wasn’t working and they said they had to reset the breaker. We were there 2 nights and there was no breakfast due to “equipment issues”. This seemed to be the case from a September review as well. What kind of equipment issues would shut down the entire breakfast service. We also had a tip envelope for the maid but received no housekeeping service during our visit?? This was not stated when we checked in. The woman working the front desk didn’t even know where the Chinese restaurant was that was literally on the same street maybe 200 feet from the hotel. Think they need to up their game and their service.

If you drive to the hotel, you have to find street parking or park in a garage and tote your luggage to the hotel. There are no signs indicating where to park. For a few days, the full breakfast was not served due to "equipment issues." A small number of breakfast items were left in the lobby on those days. There was no one to help with luggage. Housekeeping did not attend to my room. I was told (as were others) that I had opted out of housekeeping but I had not. The manager at the front desk was aloof and nasty. When breakfast was served in the breakfast room, I noticed a spider in one of the plates.

First the positives: Excellent location for access to downtown Keene shops and restaurants, the building is an interesting historical structure, the water was plenty hot with good pressure, and the in-room coffee maker was a keurig (so we could substitute our own flavors, which we bought nearby). That said, those few positives were far outweighed by the negatives: The room was dated, in rough shape and not very clean; the mattress was horrible; the towels were paper thin; the room-darkening drapes had holes and didn’t close; our room overlooked Main Street which is NOISY until well after midnight (post-bar revealers, and so many Harleys going by!); the walls and ceilings are thin; the HVAC is quirky and noisy; and the single very small elevator is glacially slow (the staircases are only on the outside of the building, not for floor-to-floor access). We will stay elsewhere if our travels take us to the area again.

I had stayed here prior and the room was filthy, found a used washcloth in the shower from prior tenant - gross. I informed the staff and we were moved to another room. My mistake was giving them another chance - I opted not to travel due to being diagnosed with COVID-19 on the day I was going to fly out. I was informed that it was too late to be reimbursed so I was still charged. I called back to speak to the manager and they would not pick up the phone - real classy. I called the customer line and spoke to a very pleasant lady who then transferred me to someone who was rude and had a chip on their shoulder. I was explaining my situation and this person cut me off mid sentence. If you want a clean room, look elsewhere.

Fairfield Inn is often our choice, but this Fairfield exceeded any of the best ever. It is a beautiful brick building that was at one time a distinguished hotel, then apartments and now a great downtown location. We were lucky enough to get one of the four king bed loft rooms. Amazing! Like a small small apartment in itself - two bathrooms (one down and one up) with a very comfortable living room space. Breakfast by all Covid recent prepackaged and heated was very good. The service and staff were doing an excellent job. Parking is free which is unusual for a downtown location. Highly recommend booking your stay in southern NH here.

The room was well appointed and comfortable. Clean and comfortable. Decent Wifi. The staff was friendly and efficient. Make sure you park in the designated spot for the hotel which is located in a parking building. I got a ticket. I would definitely stay there again.
