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.
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.
