Fairfield Inn - A Pleasant Surprise
This clean, sharp new hotel is definately upscale for a Fairfield property. The room was huge, the linens exceptionally nice, the pillows fluffy and the general decor quite stylish. We had a good night's sleep followed by a nice breakfast provided complimentary with the room rate.
Shuttle to JFK was also a nice additional service.
Surely it is the nicest Fairfield Inn in which we have ever stayed, and we would happily stay here again.
Nice hotel to stay in
This hotel is value for money. The rooms are nice and clean, free internet. Breakfast was ok, the staff was very courteous and helpful. The subway station is about 10 minutes bus ride, they do have a free shuttle to the subway station from the hotel. The bathroom did not have a bathtub, and there was some stink in the bathroom water, else the room and the stay was nice. Would surely stay there again. For about $120 you I did not find a better accomodation in New York/JFK area
Best Hotel at JFK
The best hotel in JFK!! Free Breakfast Free Shuttle to and from JFK 24 hrs Free scheduled transportation to local subway! Clean hotel/rooms + comfortable room Restaurant was awesome with great priced food (American Grill) Front Desk staff was extremely helpful!
Had a stop-over from Hawaii - I am definetly going to stay at this hotel again! A+ for this hotel!!
This hotel is really only practical if you have business near JFK and have a rental car, or you have a layover and are utilizing the hotel shuttle. Overall, I had an average experience just as I would expect at any Fairfield Inn. The staff was above average which was the one standout for the property. It is important to note that during my stay, three NY cab drivers could not locate this hotel. It is difficult to find.
All things considered its pretty good
Very nice newly renovated hotel...disregard the reviews prior to this summer as the hotel has been renovated entirely...Only down side to my stay last night was a large family with about 12 children occupying the (two!) rooms at the end of the hall...they had the doors open frequently and the children were screaming at high volume which made it difficult to sleep. They had about six children and two adults in each room! But the breakfast was good, shuttle service slow but reasonably efficicient, and the beds comfortable.. I slept on a rollaway which was not the best rollaway i'd ever been on but the regular king bed was comfy. Business center is useful also.
They lied on the phone!
I booked a reservation using Marriott points. I am a Marriott Platinum member.
I called the property one month prior to my stay and spoke to a manager. She said I could leave my car there while on vacation for 2 weeks.
When I arrived, there were no rooms ready, the parking lot is miniscule at best and there is NOTHING around except a fried chicken place. Also, the 2 helpless girls at the desk said no, you can't park here that long. I said I spoke to xxxx on August XX and she said I can.
I asked for alternative properties that had a park and fly rate, they said they didn't have any idea of where to go. I asked for a place to eat breakfast, like a diner. One said, "oh there is a fried chicken place across the street". Uh, I said breakfast.
Long story short, we left. Called Marriott customer service to complain about their lack of concern for a Platinum member and took my business to the Doubletree!
I will never consider this place again. Seemed clean, but the staff is clueless....you are totally on your own.
Great location near JFK
Rooms recently updated to Faifield standards. while somewhat on the small side, they were immaculately clean and comfortable. Property well maintained and desk staff very friendly and helpful. All you would expect in a Fairfield by Mariott, plus an on-site restaurant that was quite good.
Nice rooms, recently remodeled!
The Fairfield Inn JFK is excellent. I used 10K Marriott points for a free stay because JFK Airport area hotels were asking gigantic prices for this Monday night in late June: Places like the 1-2* Comfort Inn, Days, Inn, and Howard Johnson's were asking $110-130; this hotel was $159, and the Holiday Inn Select was even $179! Most other 3-4* hotels were over $200.
Anyway, while it's not The Ritz, the Fairfield Inn JFK is really quite nice.
Free Wi-Fi, a decent free continental breakfast, a tiny but usable gym for cardio (only a stationary bicycle and treadmill, no weights), friendly check-in agents, and (rare for a Fairfield Inn) there is a restaurant in-house with a decent-looking Mediterranean menu (entrees $12-18). Also has a sit-down bar. I walked past it on the way to the gym, and it seemed to have customers every time I walked past. Within 4 blocks is a McDonald's, Burger King, a Halal Fried Chicken place, Chinese take-out, and two small convenience/grocery stores. Room furnishings seem to be brand new. TV channels--about 20, though not as many as on the menu card.
The shuttle seems to only depart from the hotel once per hour (10 minutes after the hour), so that's not very convenient. I happened to catch it at stop C of the AirTrain (Federal Circle) as it went by, so I didn't have to wait at all. Still, it's shared with the Comfort Inn and HoJo's, so that could be improved. The neighborhood seems to be ok, but not great: industrial buildings, auto shops, etc, with very little pedestrian traffic--so if you're on foot, you'll meet very few others. However, there is a lot of car traffic, so it's not like there's nobody around. I was back to the hotel by about 8pm, so it was still light out, but it seemed just ok.
All in all, if you can get a decent price, I'd highly recommend this hotel, especially over the trio of hotels located further down the highway (and within walking distance of nothing, save for the NYC Sanitation Department garbage truck base): Holiday Inn Select, Days Inn, Comfort Inn.
Rooms recently renovated
Just spent a Sunday night at the Fairfield Inn JFK as we had to be nearby early Monday a.m. Arrived 10 p.m. and left by 6:30 a.m. Get good directions as you loop under highway to get to the hotel and there it is. We drove and the parking lot is surrounded by high fence, but I wouldn't leave anything valuable there and lock up tight. Neighborhood is at edge of industrial area, not bad, but not great, either. We felt safe gettingout and unloading. The front desk was manned, friendly and efficient. Went down steps (1 floor elevator available), past lounge/restaurant, breakfast area to elevator to our room 300 in corner. Two doubles, nicely furnished, TV, table, chair, etc. obviously recently done. Not fabulous, but very nice. TV worked. Free Wireless internet worked. Bathroom was medium sized and perfectly fine and very clean. Room overlooked parking lot - no problem. airconditioner blew the curtains, but we didn't care. Slept until 5:45 wake up call. Showered, etc. We were pleased that the breakfast room, scheduled to open at 6:30, had coffee available and basic baked goods, i.e. muffins and croissants were out about 6:15. Shuttle bus was waiting as we departed by car. For the area, I was perfectly happy for the price, location and level of service, comfort and cleanliness.

After checking into the Hotel and getting settled....Mari and I took the Long Island Railroad into the city for some last minute shopping and had dinner at "The Counter ", the highlight of the evening was stopping for a dipped cone at the ice cream truck at 42nd and 7th,
We will be up early tomorrow for our 15 hour flight to South Africa....getting excited!
If I thought I was speechless seeing the view from Brooklyn bridge then my reaction at seeing Time Square for the first time could only be described as gobsmacked. What a total assault on the senses... the sound, smell and sights were from a different planet. I have never experienced such a cacophony of sounds - sirens, shouting, laughter, car horns, music combined with the most amazing ...
... FACE! Just before I decided to give up and leave the bags in America, an open elevator arrived and we were on our way up. THREE: We arrived at the ticket counter and began to check in. Surprisingly, only two of our 9 checked bags were overweight (and not by much!). The woman said she could check our bags all the way to NZ for us (hooray for not going through customs in Sydney!). ... She said. Finally after about 10 minutes of typing and tagging and printing, Mark and I were ...
... visited the statue of liberty and central park zoo on my own. tbh, no offence to nick, i quite enjoyed my lone time, needed to be on my own and have a bit of freedom. i could do what i wanted!. so i fullfilled my role given to me by my bunk as the grandad of the group - went for a lovely stroll in the park for a bit and had posh nosh in central park with a splended live band. 'twas good.
tomorrow is the start of my trek, the next chapter. fun fun. im tired allready ...
... The iced coffee was a tall glass of black coffee with ice in it. We added milk from the little packs that are everywhere in America. The food was all good and cost us $44 including tip. We got back to the theater just as they opened the doors.
We were sitting 4 rows from the back (not what I'd call MID-mezz) but had a great view of the whole sweep of what was happening on stage. The show was FANTASTIC. The puppets so clever. Some ...
