Super clean, well run Fairfield, right next to the Historic District with easy access and parking. Walk to Whaling Museum and New Bedford Whaling NHP. Interesting spot near the harbor and the fishing boats. Room pricing was just right. Nearby fish restaurants and also a nice Pizza parlor, Fish restaurants seem to be very pricey.

The location is perfect for walking to restaurants in the area. The hotel is extremely clean and quiet. We really enjoyed our one night stay and took advantage of the free hot continental breakfast. I would stay here again.

Located near the water in New Bedford, close to shops and restaurants in a very nice part of town. Extremely friendly and helpful staff that helped me organize for a presentation. Very clean rooms and common area. Breakfast staff very friendly and outgoing. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

We first choose this location for its location, near the Buttonwood Zoo, St Luke's Hospital, Whaling Museum and tons of restaurants. The rooms were roomy and clean. The common areas were well kept up. On a snowy day, it was cozy reading the newspaper by the fireplace. Even their free breakfast was great; bacon, scrambled and boiled eggs, bagels, make...

The hotel is nice, new and the staff was helpful and friendly. Unfortunately some of the guests while we were staying were not respectful of the place and someone was sick in the elevator which seemed to take a long time to be cleaned up. Responding to something like this matters to me and I wish the Fairfield fixed it...
