The staff, accomodations and location were all great. The hotel is newer and very well kept. The continental breakfast was good as well. You can walk to the historic section of New Bedford and the Whaling Museum. The location is directly across from the shipyard and was fine for the time of year we were there but it could be a bit smelly I would imagine during summer months.

I stayed at Fairfield Inn & Suites, New Bedford over the weekend. The hotel was a little tricky to find -- I could see the place and my GPS gave me clear instructions, but there is construction that required a little maneuvering in order to get there. Once we figured that out there was no problem pulling in. The hotel was clean, the staff very friendly, and the price was good. The breakfast began at 6:00 on Sunday and that helped us out since we had a plane to catch in Boston. Also, the breakfast was very good. There was a lot of variety.

We stayed here with 12 other people.The location is great.Close enough to the water for great views .Close enough to the highway without hearing the traffic. And my favorite, close enough to a huge antique collective. There is a great restaurant right across the street on the water.The old downtown area was within walking distance and worth the stroll .The hotel is newish and kept in pristine condition.The beds were VERY comfortable, the rooms cozy without being small and the staff was very very nice and helpful.Plenty of easy parking.The continental breakfast was complete and good and had generous serving times.

Room Tip: I sleep with my eyes closed so it didn't matter to me what side of the building I was on but the water views on the east side were lovely

This is a relatively new hotel on the waterfront, spacious and clean with large rooms and very comfortable beds. It deserves high marks for this but the breakfast, which was included, is very limited. It's alright if you like waffles, muffins, cereals and toast. There was also plastic food available in wrappers which could be heated in a microwave. Ugh! There's no restaurant but across the road the Waterfront Seafood grill has a very inviting menu.

Watch out for the traffic chaos. The hotel is currently isolated by major road works and finding the entrance can be a real problem. Once you arrive and step inside then a pleasant stay is promised. Our welcome was a bit abrupt however. Not a smile from the gentleman on the front desk and he mumbled the instructions for checking-in. Later on, other staff were far more friendly. But I would recommend visiting New Bedford with its fascinating Whaling history and museum.

Room Tip: Read the maps and make sure you know how to reach the location. It can be very confusing with all the road works taking place.

I stayed there for a week on bissness. The hotel itself is nice new it ends there. As a elite Marriott member I have stayed at lots of Marriotts threw out the north east. The Room smelled like dirty gym socks. They cleaned the room once during our stay. By mistake they charge $1400.00 on my charge card, sorry they said when I called them when I got the statement. The staff was very rude. that I Have ever incounterd at a marriott, totally unacceptable service. I wont go to that marrott again..
