One night-stay on a business trip, and it was a great choice. I walked to Target and bought snacks/drinks for my in-room fridge. Walked to the next-door mall for dinner. Enjoyed a wonderful selection at the full free breakfast (including fruit-to-go for my meeting!!!). The room was fine: bed firm and comfy, bathroom clean and good water pressure, etc. Interior...

I love this hotel! The staff is super friendly, Laurie and Diana were super accommodating and we're quick to help me locate the best of the nearby dining and shopping! We ended each night at the awesome bar - full service, and some time around the fire pit. Will definitely recommend this place to anyone!

My first stay at this location. Check in person was functional but not friendly. Room looked clean but there was BLACK MOLD on the shower curtain liner (see photos). Check out staff was friendly, and receptive to constructive criticism regarding the bathroom. Otherwise comfortable stay. Didn't eat breakfast so can't comment on it.

What an amazing hotel!! Definitely not what we expected. I love the trendy upscale look. What a gem!! The hotel staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. This is my first time in Durham, and Laurie was very patient as I asked for several suggestions. Comfortable bed and clean rooms. We will definitely stay here again.

This packaging looks ok, renovated with contemporary furnishings but we had live ants in our room and dead spiders. We changed rooms but were completely turned off. We were spooked and looking in each nook and cranny in our new room. The front desk staff was ok, nice enough but not spectacular. If you have a bug free clean room...

My husband and I stayed at Fairfield Inn & Suites in Durham this week while traveling on business. I was tired (read: exhausted) at the end of the day and just wanted to eat at the restaurant and have an early night. Drew was running the restaurant on his own, serving customers and preparing meals. He was very personable and...

I have stayed in many Fairfields, and this one completely blew me away. Has the feel of an upscale full-service: Incredible water feature in an atrium-type setting. 6 floors, great staff - an absolute GEM and the most impressive product that I have seen offered by the Fairfield brand. I will DEFINITELY be staying here again when I return to...

We've just returned from a 12 day road trip during which we stayed in 11 different properties. I wouldn't have a problem staying again in any one of them. Each mostly met my expectations--a few exceeded them. All of the lodgings were in the $65 to $110 price range and all would be considered 2- or 3-star properties. The pluses...

There was really nothing special about this place. Room is average, and even though we requested a late checkout, they forgot to inform the housekeeping staff. There is a skeleton crew at night...1 person at front desk, and a bartender who has to run around like a nut to not only pour drinks, but make and deliver food to tables...

I would really like to recommend this hotel, but can't. Here is the big negative: housekeeping. I stayed here over the New Year's holiday, visiting family. My parents also stayed here and experienced some of the most frustrating housekeeping service they've ever had. Unfortunately, this is not the first time. Of the three times they've stayed at this hotel, 2...
