We enjoyed watching the activity over at the commercial fishing docks from our room. The staff was outstanding answering all questions about the immediate area. It is easy to walk uptown for meals. For those interested, there are geocaches within walking distance.

My wife and I stayed here a night for a nearby wedding. At first we were worried because the wedding started at 4PM and that was the check-in time. Fortunately we called ahead and they were accommodating enough to give us a 1PM check-in but in a downgraded room. The room itself was still large, clean, and had a nice... More

Great location on the city harbor. Also walking distance to the historic downtown section. Clean and new. Great service team including Shelly the meeting and sales director. Also like the sparkling in door pool area.

Utilized the Hotel as a business/vacation hybrid and was pleasantly surprised. Staff was professional and attentive and went above and beyond in meeting our requests. We were disappointed in the first room we were given, but were upgraded to a better view (of the harbor) the next morning. The room upgrade fixed the view issue and the wonderful staff did... More

Stopped here on way to the Cape. Great and clean. Great staff, great breakfast. I travel a lot and am very critical -- I give 5-stars sparingly. Walk across the street to two great seafood restaurants for great food and cocktails. 5 minute walk to the historic district. Easy access to Vineyard and Nantucket ferries.

The Fairfield is built at the waterfront across Macarthur Dr from the active fishing docks. We had a harbor view and it was a great view. Very busy harbor, fascinating. The suite we had was wonderful. New, clean, nicely decorated. The staff was excellent. Check in, check out, other needs were attended to immediately. Very quiet. Great bed, slept well.... More
