Fairfield Inn New York Long Island City / Manhattan View
Ranked #16 of 34 Hotels in Long Island City
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Just returned from staying here for 3 nights. The hotel was quite nice. It's a block from the Long Island Expressway, so you don't hear the noise from the room. The rooms itself was nice, though a little small. The only problem I had was that the room darkening blinds were about a foot too short, not allowing full darkness in the morning.

The breakfast was okay. Scrambled eggs and sausage were a little overcooked, but they also had cereals, juices, make your own waffles and boiled eggs. They also had a nice business center will free computer use, wifi throughout the hotel and shuttle service to the 33rd street station (line 7). The shuttle runs from 6am to 11pm. If it's not waiting there, or you miss it, it's a long 3-4 blocks, which is very doable.

The hotel is in an industrial area, so it's pretty quiet at night.

Pluses:
- Price
- Proximity to Manhattan
- Friendly staff
- Shuttle to nearest subway
- Free parking within hotel and on nearest streets. During weekdays don’t park next to a warehouse or risk damaging your car.
- Breakfast. Coffee and yogurts available.
Negatives:
- Not on Manhattan.
- Nothing around the hotel. One must walk a mile away minimum.
- Can be very loud traffic sounds if the window is open.
- Very soft, worn out beds.
- Super small rooms.
Overall very decent hotel.
I did my booking within booking.com with 48 hours cancellation policy. On Marriott site cancellation was out of question and I was offered to prepay 100% 2 weeks prior. Ouch!
Depending on a season I would recommend to wait (if you can!) for booking until last minute and get up to 40% discount.

If you're looking for a great value with easy access to NYC, then this is a great place to stay. The rooms were small, but very comfortable. The complementary breakfast was delicious and included a variety of hot and cold items (eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, fruit and bagels/breads). We also loved the free shuttle to and from the subway.

The hotel is in a warehouse district, but don't let this deter you. The area felt very safe and the street noise was very minus all. They do have a small parking lot and a few spots in and underground garage.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all, a great place to stay for tourists on a budget!

I spent a one-night stay here using one of my free-night certificates due to its ridiculous high price. Breakfast was good and the room space was acceptable. Parking lot was really small, so I believe that most customers had to park their cars along street sides. And of course, it's impossible to see manhattan view via your windows :)

Stayed for 6 nights Oct 13; great breakfast, good room, all nice and relaxed. Hotel provided Bus to and from subway and also local restaurants, which was very convenient.

All in all recommended. A good value option in the Big Apple.

We are routine Marriott guests, and love knowing what we can expect at Marriott hotels. Fairfield is one of their lower category hotels, and thus it might not have all of the perks as a higher-grade Marriott does. But this Fairfield, true to its class, was great. Nice staff. Free breakfast, with a decent assortment. Our 3rd floor room, although missing the "Manhattan View" had a jacuzzi tub... perfect after long days walking in the city. Provides a complimentary shuttle every 30 minutes to the Subway. The closest subway station is a 20 minute walk (we walked it 3 times during our stay at 11:00pm at night after missing the last shuttle and it was fine). It would appear to be in a not good part of town, but it's really just industrial and we saw no one on the streets while we were walking. We would stay here again.

We are currently staying at the Fairfield Inn and have been impressed with the high level of service and professionalism displayed by the staff here. After having stayed one night out of our five nights they changed us to a view room without any hassle.
