Good location, close to many attractions, front desk staff were friendly and helpful.|The room I got had a very bad view but other than that was comfortable. The bed and pillows were great, we slept like we never do!|Breakfast included is very limited in options but its OK. I would like it if they did not use paper plates and plastic cutlery as this is a lot of waste and it makes it look cheap, on the plus side....Fanny and Javier, the staff in charge of breakfast service are awesome. So warm and friendly| Sometimes understaffed and they got slammed but they made every morning a fun way to start our day.

Fairfield’s breakfast is an wonderful experience. Javier's service goes beyond excellent; it's like being welcomed into a home away from home. Every morning, the delightful surprises on the breakfast menu made my stay special, and Javier's patience and helpfulness added a personal touch. He truly deserves more than commendation, maybe even a pay raise. The entire staff radiates warmth, making Fairfield the perfect choice for a wonderful and memorable hotel stay with exceptionally comfy beds. And, oh, you must try the incredible blueberry compote—it's like a warm hug for your taste buds!
