The Fairfield Inn is in a quiet corner of Chinatown, only a few minutes walk from Wall Street and South Street Seaport. There are some nice, trendy bars and restaurants nearby which is convenient.
Rooms are a good size (very good size for NYC) and the beds are very comfortable (definitely up to Marriott standard). Breakfast is also good, with a great range of hot and cold options, fresh fruit (always a plus) and good selection of teas. I still don't understand why NYC hotels go for styrofoam plates, but there you go...
The staff are young and friendly and rooms were clean (the hotel is very new so enjoy it while everything is in tip top condition).
Unlike most Manhattan hotels, you will not hear much street noise as this hotel is in a quiet spot.
Yes, there is a Chinese supermarket that sells fish downstairs and some fishy smell can sometimes be noticeable near reception, but this is far from a big deal. In fact, the floors where rooms are smell nice.
I would definitely recommend this hotel as a great find in downtown.
