Full disclosure - I am a Marriott Premium member.
The Fairfield Inn at Pontoon Beach IL was conveniently located for a multi-location event that canvassed from the west side of Alton, IL and downtown St. Louis. The hotel is located just off I270 at the Pontoon Beach exit. It is new - so now that two of the party's GPS units could not locate the address or road, even on updated maps. HINT - If you're setting your GPS to the property, set it to the corner of IL-111 and Engineer Road off the I270 exit.
The property is new and very clean and the staff is absolutely fantastic. They helped with a multi-party reservation that was a little complicated and they made it go absolutely smooth.
Rooms were quiet and very comfortable. The bed was "Marriott comfy" and there was ample electricity next to the bed for medical devices if necessary. Likewise, there is ample electricity around the room for all electronic needs. Housekeeping was "on the hop" every day and kept the room fresh.
The free breakfast that Fairfield offered is typical of the hotel type. The coffee was wonderful!
If it's a quick stop between Saint Louis and Illinois, this is the place you want.More
