Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Clean, contemporary rooms with 32-inch flat-screen TVs
  • iPod docks and free Wi-Fi
  • Coffee/tea maker
  • Bathrooms with walk-in showers and Bath & Body works toiletries
  • Free breakfast with hot and cold items
  • Free passes to a Crunch gym nearby
  • 24-hour station for coffee and tea
  • Computer station with two computers
  • Some rooms have balconies and skyline views

Cons

  • Rooms are small
  • Breakfast and elevators can get crowded
  • No on-site fitness center or restaurant

Bottom Line

This 92-room Fairfield Inn in Midtown is cleaner and more contemporary than one may expect from a mid-range chain, and offers a free morning breakfast buffet, a free 24-hour coffee station, and a computer station. There are no other features, and guests should expect to pay a premium for location during the week when the hotel is busy with business travelers -- but rates can be half the price on weekends. Popular sights such as the Empire State Building, New York Public Library, and Times Square are within walking distance, but the more upscale Strand hotel next door is sometimes cheaper and luxury options can be found in the same price range downtown.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the Garment District of Midtown Manhattan, within walking distance of popular sights

The Fairfield Inn is located on an unexciting block in the Garment District, next to the more upscale Strand Hotel. This area is full of wholesale garment shops and delivery trucks, but it's only a short walk to popular tourist attractions such as the Empire State Building, Times Square, the Theater District, Bryant Park, and the New York Public Library.

  • Within walking distance of 15 subway lines: the 1, 2, 3, N, R, Q and 7 at Times Square, the 4, 5, 6, 7 and S at Grand Central Station, and B, D, F, M and 7 at Bryant Park.
  • 6-minute walk to the Empire State Building
  • 6-minute walk to Bryant Park and the main branch of the New York Public Library
  • 11-minute walk to Grand Central Station
  • 12-minute walk to Times Square
  • 15-minute walk to Rockefeller Center
  • 25-minute drive to LaGuardia Airport
  • 40-minute drive to John F. Kennedy Airport
  • 40-minute drive to Newark Airport

 Bottom Line

This 92-room Fairfield Inn in Midtown is cleaner and more contemporary than one may expect from a mid-range chain, and offers a free morning breakfast buffet, a free 24-hour coffee station, and a computer station. There are no other features, and guests should expect to pay a premium for location during the week when the hotel is busy with business travelers -- but rates can be half the price on weekends.
