Location: The Fairfield Inn & Suites Brunswick Freeport is approximately 28 miles NE of the Portland airport. It is conveniently located off I-295 and Hwy 1. However, it is easy to miss your turn onto Old Portland Road, and once you do, you will think you are in the wrong spot.
Value: As Marriott rewards members, we used one of our free night certificates, earned from Marriott's recent promo. Otherwise, our room would have been $179.00. What I love about Fairfield Inn's is that they offer complimentary parking, WiFi, and breakfast. All small expenses, that can really add up, especially for a long stay.
Room: We stayed in room 315, which had a partial wall dividing the sitting area & bed. The room featured two TVs and a Sony sound system compatible with iPhone & iPod. I especially liked the long bathroom counter, with ample room for two people to get ready at the same time. The shower had a Waterpik showerhead with plenty of water pressure. There was also plenty of light in the bathroom for putting on makeup, which is generally not the case in a most hotel rooms. However, the king size bed was centered in the sleeping area, which left very little walking room between the bed & the AC unit. This can be an issue, if you have to get up in the middle of the night.
Housekeeping: Upon arrival, the room was clean and in order. Since we were only there one night, I cannot attest to the daily housekeeping service.
Front Desk: We checked in around 8:45 pm on a Sunday evening. Check-in was quick & efficient. However, we were given a room directly across from the elevator, even though the hotel was no where near capacity. This is the second time this has happened on a free night certificate, and since it happened in two different states, I'm wondering if this is policy for free rewards nights.

Had a perfect travel day yesterday. Actually got away early, 8:45, and had beautiful cold clear weather all day. It was only once we got close to Portland that we saw any snow at all and there it was only deep in the bush. But shortly after we stopped for the night the snow started. It looks like we got about 3" overnight. Luckily we're heading south! Had great Chinese food last night. Who knew we'd find it in Maine! Here's what morning looked like - winter ...
New Years Eve was a lovely day, travelling down the coast, with the aim of arriving in Boston early evening. We visited Kennebunkport and a neighbouring village, both very cute little seaside towns, lots of money evident there. Kennebunkport is where Clinton has a house, so you can imagine!
Note to selves: when returning to Boston, on New Years Eve, and your hotel is on the Times Square of Boston, it is not the best idea to try to drive to the ...
... The waitress was lovely and funny which made the night even better. 'There isn't a starch I've met that I didn't like'.... the menu sides included fingerling potatoes, fries, roast potatoes, rice, potato salad and mashed potato! They were the only options for sides... no vegetables or anything. Just starch. I had TWIN lobsters for tea! 2 whole lobsters for $37! 2 lobsters steamed are only about 300 calories! Dad you really would love the lobster!! So ...
We woke up this morning in our hotel room that housed the shower in a cupboard. Before our tour of the House of 7 Gables in Salem we wandered back to Marblehead to take photos of the cute little coloured houses and the beautiful mansions. Such a great little place. We then ventured back to Salem. Salem You know that feeling when you start a tour, and know from the very first second it's going to be the longest 45 minutes of your life, but there's no escape? ...
... once I told him I was staying in Copacabana he lightened up and said “ahh, good, rich ***** area”, so hearing that maybe there was a chance I won’t be getting shot made me feel much better. Our few days in Miami consisted mainly of going to the beach and just walking around and exploring South Beach. This is definitely a place I’ll need to revisit when I’m 21! Between all the nice hotels, great locations, clubs, restaurants and shops you could so easily ...
