I must echo the other reviews and say that, while the staff of this hotel was exceptional, the facilities were sub-par compared to my expectations for a Fairfield Inn (and particularly after experiencing the amazing Fairfield Inn just down the road in Puyallup a few days earlier).
Convenience is what sold me on this hotel (otherwise, we would have stayed in Puyallup). The 24 hour airport shuttle allowed us to drop off our rental car on a Sunday night and catch a ride to the airport the next day. This process went very smoothly. We dropped the car at the rental car terminal, hopped the shuttle over to the airport, called the hotel to send the shuttle over and were on our way in less than 10 minutes. The next morning, the shuttle was on time and got us to the airport with time to spare.
The downsides are that this hotel is very old. The rooms have a "Days Inn Circa 1982" feel. They have the "Fairfield" color scheme, but are missing a lot of the finishing touches (like the bed scarf and the extra pillows and art on the walls). All in all, the décor is very "economy" hotel, whereas most Fairfield Inns are "economy plus".
The rooms were on the small side, especially the bathrooms. The bed was hard as a rock (in fairness, I spent the night before in heaven at the Salish Lodge, so it may have suffered from comparison). It was, however, impeccably clean and the walls were substantial enough to block out noise from the hallway and the planes.
We had to leave too early to try the breakfast buffet. I did note, however, that it opens at 5 AM, which is probably convenient for people with early flights.
I didn't love this Fairfield Inn, but there was nothing horrible about it. I would probably stay there again if I had another early flight.
