We were in Ithaca New York looking at Cornell University with our daughter. We chose the Fairfield Inn because of the suites available. We booked a King suite with a pull out couch. The whole hotel looked as if it had recently been remodeled. Lobby was very modern looking and breakfast area was spacey with many tables. Every thing was clean! Our room was small for a suite but the lay out was good and flowed nicely. The couch and chair blended into each other so if you wanted to you could sleep on it without opening it up. My daughter still opened it however. The king sized bed was very comfy. The bathroom was spacious with a large walk in shower. Shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, make up remover and toothpaste were all provided. There was a small fridge, a microwave and a one cup coffee maker. Two small flat screen tvs. The lobby actually had a small area with a large cooler that sold drinks, some food that could be warmed up, candy, snacks and ice cream treats. To make it really convenient you could just charge it to your room.
Staff was great, friendly and willing to answer any questions about the area.
Breakfast was better than most hotel breakfasts. The scrambled eggs were very fresh and hot. Two kinds of waffles every day and then oatmeal, yogurt, cereal, sausage, toast bagels etc. The breakfast staff was very friendly and helpful. I walk with a cane and when she saw that she offered to help me right away.
I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are coming to Ithaca. It is not right in the downtown area, but just minutes away. Truthfully, you don't want to stay in the downtown area..very narrow streets and next to no parking. But that's a different review!
