Historical Traveler Reviews Fairfield Inn Philadelphia Airport
Not bad for the price
Only stayed 2 nights in this hotel and the stay was OK. No real problems except for one morning wanted to go into the spa and the crew was cleaning it. Someone called them out and had to wait an additional hr to get in spa.
Below my High Standards
We arrived on a late evening flight to the Philadelphia Airport and were not interested in waiting any longer than necessary for the airport shuttle. However, despite ringing them numerous times to complain, we were forced to wait for at least 45 minutes in an exhaust-filled parking area for the hotel shuttle. There was no explanation for this terribly slow service nor was there any expected apology from hotel staff.
The room was average, with the pillows and sheets smelling strongly of chlorine. The room had a small window and no balcony. I was pleased to only spend seven hours in the room, mostly in bed!
Breakfast was an even worse experience. Part of the small selection was cornflakes, which were terribly dry. The only beverage that suited my fancy, water, was self-served in Styrofoam cups.
The unfavourable experience in this particular hotel has made me to decide to, whenever possible, avoid staying overnight at any airport hotel. The reality is that they are all similar to one another.
Typical airport hotel
Nothing really special about this Fairfield, located neat Philadelphia Airport. We stayed because we got a terrific rate, which made it worthwhile. Tons of very loud kids in the pool and whirlpool, which was annoying. Management didn't seem to be in the mood to enforce any of the rules against, for example, jumping and kids without adults. Heavy security measures at the front door are a bit off-putting, but once you're past them, this is a typical Fairfield. Decent breakfast.
Pleasantly Surprised with the Fairfield Inn
Just stayed here, and it was very good, especially in view of some of the other reviews. The room was clean, large with two queen beds. It is clearly not as "upscale" as some of the other hotels in the Marriott chain with less fancy bedding, simpler decor and towels that aren't as thick. However, it was comfortable and a good place to stay, with all expected amenities. There was an indoor pool that looked very nice, and the continental breakfast, which was included, was quite adequate with bagels, cereal, fruits etc., even make your own waffles. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Philadelphia was quite booked on this day, and I saw people being turned away because the hotel was full. It is about a 15 minute drive to Philadelphia, close to the airport, and convenient to the highways. I recommend it.
Not awful, but not great
Average in terms of amenities and cleanliness for a 2-star, but I was a little bit disappointed in the customer service at the front desk. Nothing horrible, they just weren't friendly when I checked in. Used the shuttle bus to and from the airport, which was fine. Breakfast was average. It depends on price, but next time I'd probably try somewhere else (there are a lot of hotels nearby). But you could probably do worse than the Fairfield.
So so hotel at the Philadelphia airport
I checked into the Fairfield Inn at the Philadelphia airport and consider the stay average. The room was clean but somewhat worn. Compared to the Hampton Inn a couple of blocks away, the breakfast was disappointing. Also, the staff seemed more interested in chatting with each other behind the front desk then helping their guests out. It was just strange that all these people were behind the front desk and none were looking at the guests.
The airport shuttle took 40 minutes to pick me up at the airport, but it brought me up on schedule.
My wife, 5 year old daughter & I stayed here one night passing through town. We were greated pleasantly & checked in quickly. We received a clean & comfortable room. I was most impressed in the morning. I went to the continental breakfast for the 3 of us and took it back to our room. We stopped back after breakfast was over for a coffee for the road when the 3 of us were leaving. The woman that was cleaning up stated "Did the baby have something to eat?". Most people would not have even looked up. This woman was very impressive. She was took alot of pride in her job. I highly recommend this hotel.
You get what you pay for
I stayed here for the night, and foung the hotel to be a little less than what I am used to. First of all the key coding machine was broken so the staff had to let every new guest into their hotel rooms. Luckily I was only staying one night. However I would not reccommend one should stay here unless they really want to save money. There are several hotels on the same road and I would advise to check them out as well before the Fairfield Inn.
Loved the Airport Fairfield Inn
After reading the review of 11/27 entitled "worst hotel etc........." I was very concerned as we had reservations to stay there for 4 days(12/3 lvg 12/7). We decided to keep our reservations. We found the hotel to be very clean, the staff very courteous and helpful. On 12/6 the Army-Navy game was played . The hotel was full of fans from both sides and with many demands all were handled in the same friendly manner-what more of a stressful weekend could you have? From our standpoint the hotel did an outstanding job and is an excellent place to stay. We travel a fair amount and this hotel is an excellent place to stay
Quite the most disgusting Hotel I have ever stayed in.
After our first night in this hotel I found 2 bills pushed under our door. One was for us the other for the previous occupant who had apparently checked out early. We then realized the room had not been cleaned nor had the bed been changed before we checked in - we had slept in used linen. We complained at the desk however, the manager was "not available" but we were asssured the linens would be changed and the room cleaned while we were out. When we returned later that evening the room had not been touched, the bed was not changed and no cleaning had been done. We were offered another room but that was found to be dirty too. Because Housekeeping had gone home we were presented with clean sheets and towels and told to change the bed ourselves. When I finally managed to reach the manager by phone - after we had returned home he offered to take $30 of the bill and said I couldn't expect to stay at a hotel for free. I finally reached the assistant to the CEO of the Marriott Chain and the cost of our entire stay was refuned. But it will be a long while before I stay in a Marriott hotel again.
