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!
... green instead of the brown copper colour due to the oxidisation of the copper from the salty sea water!! We exited the monument and walked over to the range station where the boys wanted to participate in the Junior Ranger program. They were given a question sheet which they had to answer all the questions, things they had learnt from their visit etc, and once done they had to recite a little oath about promising to help preserve national parks...... and ...
... cab it here since the metro system is so good and convenient. It was a short jaunt to the upper east side where Darrin lives. He left a key for us at the front of his condo and the guys working there remember us from previous visits.
After we dropped our bags, we started walking towards Central Park. It’s a beautiful week here, weather wise with warm and sunny days every day. We just love walking around the city and walked all over the Upper ...
... away with slightly pink arms. Unbelievable access to such a famous bridge.
Then off to timed entry at 9 11 memorial. This visit was sobering and despite what has happened since the terrifying day is well portrayed and at times very upsetting. Potentially ill judged for Ruthy but definitely thought provoking for the rest.
We then did a classic for us and decided to go through Greenwich Village to get to High ...
... My favorite were the emails letting me know my documents were ready for collection. I kept writing back, "I know! That's what I'm emailing you about!" Their responses said, ok, no problem, I should email them and they would forward my email to the “concern department.” But I was emailing them? That’s how we were talking…
In the end, I mailed a prepaid Fed Ex mailer up to the office with a note begging for my passport back. It said:
