Fairfield Inn & Suites Baltimore Downtown/Inner Harbor
Ranked #33 of 67 Hotels in Baltimore
Reviewed 14 November 2009

We stayed for a weekend getaway and found this hotel to be perfect. I am surprised this hotel is so reasonably priced; it's a steal as far as I'm concerned. Rooms were a bit on the small side but they were very modern looking and very clean. Hotel bar was great for late nights and free breakfast was better than your ordinary continental breakfast (bagels, yogurt, m-wave b-fast s-wiches, etc) and we found it to be more than adequate to start the day. No room service is only drawback.

Hotel is only 3-4 block walk to Inner Harbor restaurants/shops and 2 block walk to Power Plant Live. We felt very safe walking even later at night. Parking is not ideal; valet is required. Staff was very nice as well. Did not take advantage of outside courtyard with gas firepit but looked very nice. Would absolutely stay here again; highly recommend this hotel.

This is a new Marriott property located just east of Downtown and Inner Harbor in the historic Jonestown neighborhood, a history heavy section where few tourists venture. It also a short walk to Little Italy and Fells Point. (If it is history you seek, the Star Spangled Banner House, Shot Tower and Carroll Mansion are just steps away.)

I am not sure if the building is original or converted from a previous structure (warehouse?), but it does offer up an atmosphere of coziness. There is a small lobby with the front desk, opposite from which is Tavern 101, where hungry tourists can feed on burgers or simply swill a brew. One thing to note: there are two buildings with separate elevators – something this reviewer discovered! The Fairfield does offer a nice lounge area, adjacent to the breakfast room, a 24-hour market, and an outdoor courtyard that features an ancient water tank converted into a fountain.

As for the accommodations, my rooms, a King, was comfortable, ample, and colorful with a modernistic flair that offers a huge bed, ample closet and flat screen plasma television. The bathroom was average and provided all your basic toiletries along with a glass portioned shower with overhead nozzle, which was enough to wash away the grime from even the dirtiest guest. An enjoyable stay I say.

We loved this hotel. Here are our pros and cons:

PROS:

(1) This is a beautiful property! Location was excellent and very accessible to Johns Hopkins and the Inner Harbor. We valet parked the car when we arrived and walked the rest of the time, which was good for many reasons.

(2) We reserved the eco friendly/Allergy Suite and it was beautiful -- spacious, two levels with 2 TVs and a bike to use if you should chose to ride through downtown Baltimore!

(3) We were tired and cold and did not want to walk with our group to find someplace to eat for dinner -- we ended up eating at the hotel and we loved it! What more can we say? Stella Artois (and many others!) on draft!! The sliders were good, chicken fingers were yummy and the service was great (yeah to the staff member from Pennsylvania who knew about food allergies!!). On another note, the Jewish Deli down the street -- Attman's -- is not to be missed for lunch!

(3) We loved the open courtyard area -- it was really just beautiful and tranquil to sit with an early morning coffee (which we did) or an evening drink (which we did) and look up at the city sky and just relax! It was a truly unique feature in a hotel that encompasses the history and beauty of the building (a restored brewery -- so beautifully re-done!) that the courtyard alone is worth staying at this hotel!

(4) Rooms and main areas are sparkling clean.

(5) Small but tidy and welcoming Market area had items available for sale in case you are craving a sweet treat or forgot something!

(6) We did not care about the parking fee -- it is a city, they brought our car up SOO fast the next morning (thank you)!

(7) We will be back!!

(8) We liked the interactive map in the lobby with a touch screen and big graphics -- very cool!

CONS:

(1) In our suite, there is no door separating the sleeping area from the living area; however, there are stairs. As a result, there are 2 TVs very close together, not buffered by a wall and both TVs turn off and on (or mute) when you use the remote for one of the TVs. This "dual functionality" did not seem to effect changing the TV channel, but it was a tad annoying.

(2) In the exercise room, there are TVs attached to the treadmills and one big TV on the wall. The TVs on the treadmills did not (a) work, on one of the treadmills; and (b) on the one that did work, the channel would not change from CBS/local. On the other hand, the very large wall TV (which is beautiful and very sleek) but only has a limited number of TV channels -- which was annoying and perplexing! Where were the local TV channels on this sleek/state of the art TV? The channels appear to start at 17 and go up but do not go lower than 17. In my opinion, the workout/exercise room was excellent, but the detracting and somewhat annoying electronics "issues" with the TVs were preeminent in my mind!

(3) No salt and pepper available for the morning breakfast -- easy fix that they could make.

(4) I cannot understand -- and none of us ever did -- how to work the heaters in the room. We were very cold at night, so be sure to check on the specifics before it is too late at night to ask (or when you are too tired to bother!).

Again, great hotel!

We just got back from our stay at this hotel. Couple of drawbacks: The shower is very nice, I thought there was plenty of water pressure (unlike the other reviewer), but there is no shower curtain, only a partial glass partition. My husband splashed the water around and got it all over the bathroom floor. Other drawback is that there is one elevator to serve about 30 rooms per floor for 4 floors (5 story hotel). We had to wait a long time for the elevator for breakfast and to check out. The $27/day for valet is actually not that steep compared to other hotels in the area. Great location, about 1 mile walk to the stadium and to Camden Yards. My favorite was the hair dryer in the room. They provide a very powerful and compact hair dryer in the room.

Enjoyed my staff. Staff was wonderful. Parking was difficult but the hotel provided valet parking. Restaurant was fare for pub food. Noise outside of hotel during night.

Traveled to Baltimore on my way to our family Southern Vacation. This was one of the best stays I've had by far. The checkin process was bit rocky however as we had requested an early checkin. Upon arrival and speaking with the front desk clerk we were told that an early check in was doable and that we would only have to wait an hour. An hour turned into almost 3 hours having to wait for our rooms. We felt that the front desk staff person who assisted was not completely honest about the condition and timeliness of the room being ready. In addition, the other staff working at the desk were not friendly and did not present us with a warm and friendly greeting despite our effort to be the most curteous and nicest guests. The second thing that was a turnoff was the fact that there was no on-site parking but you had to pay $27 for validated parking.. bummer! I suppose that's not too bad for a Downtown Area. Last and not least was the breakfast area which was unimpressive at its best and the food was horrible! Overall, the rooms were fabulous, including the bathroom and the bedding, what can I say, one of the most comfortable nights rest I've ever had. In addition to the gorgeous room, I loved the location of where we were which was, you got it, Inner Harbor. I loved being within walking distance to restaurants, shops, harbor, and anything else you may have wanted to sight see. This was a very nice trip and despite the minor setbacks I would do it again. You will love this hotel.

Good location, friendly staff and comfortable surroundings make this a nice hotel. Check in, breakfast and facilites were great. Walked to Little Italy and the Inner Harbour. One major drawback was the shower. There was very little water pressure and the shower would barely rinse the soap out of your hair. Also, the $27/day valet was very steep given the hotel type.
