Great location on the city harbor. Also walking distance to the historic downtown section. Clean and new. Great service team including Shelly the meeting and sales director. Also like the sparkling in door pool area.

Utilized the Hotel as a business/vacation hybrid and was pleasantly surprised. Staff was professional and attentive and went above and beyond in meeting our requests. We were disappointed in the first room we were given, but were upgraded to a better view (of the harbor) the next morning. The room upgrade fixed the view issue and the wonderful staff did... More

Stopped here on way to the Cape. Great and clean. Great staff, great breakfast. I travel a lot and am very critical -- I give 5-stars sparingly. Walk across the street to two great seafood restaurants for great food and cocktails. 5 minute walk to the historic district. Easy access to Vineyard and Nantucket ferries.

My family and I were headed on a long ride to the Cape from NYC and decided to take advantage of the Free stay we had earned for a Category 4 hotel, which this was. It broke up the trip well and was just a short sidestep away from I-195 The hotel looked like a fairly new property throughout including... More

Good location and good price. Worth the 45 min drive to Hyannis. Having ferry across street was convenient. Walking distance to center of New Bedford with some shops museums and restaurants. Good hot breakfast.

The Fairfield is built at the waterfront across Macarthur Dr from the active fishing docks. We had a harbor view and it was a great view. Very busy harbor, fascinating. The suite we had was wonderful. New, clean, nicely decorated. The staff was excellent. Check in, check out, other needs were attended to immediately. Very quiet. Great bed, slept well.... More

We used this hotel for our wedding guests, and blocked off a total of 9 rooms so people could stay here during our wedding. This hotels was a complete nightmare to deal with.

We stayed for 1 night on our way to the Cape. Fairfield Inn provided us with great accommodations. We had a wonderful harbor view room on the 5th floor. The hotel was new, modern and clean. Breakfast was good and offered many choices.

I travel extensively and never believe that I'm entitled even when staying at a brand which I've been loyal to. As a lifetime Platinum elite with Marriott, I only ask one thing---- when it's time for my vacation and using rewards, I'm treated with respect. Not that the folks there didn't respect me.
