“Surprisingly great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

I booked this room because it was close to my favorite Cuban restaurant in Miami and I was surprised by the comfort, cleanliness and general great stay. Loved it and would recommend as it was a great value and easily as nice as the Marriott and much better than most places in Miami. Great location for the traveler.

Location is just convenient to airport with nothing great nearby.

Lobby, rooms and workout area all seemed perfect and new. Was overly impressed for Fairfield- felt more like a courtyard and a nice one at that. Would definitely stay again.

its not all that luxurious but it is perfect just for that 2 day trip in Miami you are planning and want to save a few $ at the same time. Breakfast is well equipped, included in your room rate. Some rooms have a strong odor of a disinfectant they use on the carpet, so ask a room that the smell is not so strong.

Room Tip: ask for a floor that the carpet is not smelling too strong.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and had an overall very good experience. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The location was convenient. We drove in and out of downtown Miami and Miami Beach and found it pretty easy from this location.

Parking was convenient and off-street. I don't know if the staff were sincere or not, but they claimed our parking was free because of our Marriott Rewards status (Silver Elite). We were not charged for it.

My only complaint is that the breakfast was disappointing. I think this was our first Fairfield Inn stay, so maybe its their standard, but the hot food was low quality. We have stayed at other Marriott properties that have higher quality hot food. We pretty much stuck to bagels and fresh fruit. For whatever reason, I'm guessing cost, the hot food felt like it was out of a Jimmy Dean frozen breakfast.

Oh, and this is out of their control, but the next door airport starts buzzing the building at about 6-7AM.

From the Fairfield Inn & Suites Miami, we appreciate your comments. We have shared your thoughts about the breakfast, but I just wanted to let you know, that we don’t serve Jimmy Dean sandwiches any more since last year that our standard was changed to scrambled eggs and proteins. We also have waffles and pastries, mixed fruit salad, bagels, yogurt’s, cereal, muffins and fresh fruits.

At first blush, the rooms are exactly how they appear on the hotel website.

And, that's the end. Property is one of those generic stud-board hotels, with no insulation, thin walls and is hard by the highway.

Noises of toilets flushing, motor bikes and cars roaring by at all hours, housekeepers shouting in the hallways, banging doors - this is like being in an episode of Prison Break.

Breakfast is one of the worst I have experienced - inedible on this visit; Marriott should be paying attention to this franchise - it is not representing the brand too well ! Breakfast is essentially trough food - "Eggs", not scrambled and not real, but some weird fake flavor and false color, which were powdery and inedible. "Sausage patties" - pink round, undercooked, mystery meat, swimming in their own grease, "Bacon" - nothing that I have ever seen.

Fruit consisted of mealy, brown, old bananas and a pre-prepped mixture of pineapple chunks and grapefruit. The standard peanut butter pats, honey pats and stale English Muffins also make an appearance.

Clearly the management at this property is oblivious - if such an obvious thing as breakfast is so wrong, then what else is there behind the scenes.

The rooms are a good size, the bed is comfortable, the front office staff are friendly (in the basic, bare-bones minimum hotel trained way).

The adjoining properties in this complex Marriott, Courtyard, represent a far better investment for your hard earned dollars and are way more customer-centric.

This is a small hotel and the first time I have tried Fairfield Inn & Suites. The hotel got off to a bad start with me as I waited on the kerb an hour before it came. Meanwhile oither leading brand hotels and others came and went frequently. I had to call the hotel twice adding insult to injury particularly given roaming charges from using phone from other country. Night staff person not friendly or welcoming. Smaller room than I was used. Hotel appeared to have been recently renovated in a tropical colourful style. Daytime staff reasonably OK. Free breakfast had good selection including bacon. Coffee weak.

Hotel in middle of highways and if you are there killing time for a cruise or a flight layover it will cost you a minimum of US$80 roundtrip by taxi to go to a touristy area like South Beach or Bayside. There is a coach for Dolphin Mall return trip US$10. Courtesy Bus for Airport appeared to stand until someone asked when you are told it operates every half hour.
Stay relatively expensive at US$ 202 (US$179 exTax) for the standard of hotel.
