We stayed here for one night on Jan 2 while in town for a hockey game at the Verizon Center. On the plus side, the hotel is a short walk to the Verizon Center, and other points of interest. The location is great, and the price can't be beat for the area. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The king sized bed was super comfy! One thing that drew us to this hotel was the free breakfast. That's where the minuses kick in (and why I can't give it 5 stars.) The hotel has a generously late check-out time: 12:00 noon. Breakfast ends at 9:30. Silly. The miniscule breakfast area is absolutely packed with guests trying to beat the clock. There was a very long line of guests waiting at 9:15. The staff was taking food away from the buffet line as people were actually trying to serve themselves! I managed to get a spoonful of eggs and a cup of juice, and we got in line around 8:00. Forget trying to toast something, because you'll spend all morning waiting in line for the toaster. IF you managed to get some food, you might as well take it back to your room, because there's no way you're going to find a place to sit in the lobby. Fairfield Inn, you have a lovely, comfortable hotel, and we'd love to stay there again sometime, but some thought needs to be put into how you handle breakfast. Would it be such a bad idea to extend the breakfast hours until 10? 10:30? 11? With a check-out time of noon, I would think not.
