I would like to start with this is a great hotel . Rooms are lovely and what a great bed so comfortable had no problem falling asleep . Rooms are clean and there are coffee makers in the room with the most delicious coffee and free bottle of water every day There is also free breakfast added in . There is normally a bit of a que but you get seated quickly or you can have the grab and go . I really can't say anything bad about the hotel but the area is something else . It could be the last time we were here we were more to wards the park side so it could be that I was sheltered from what new York was really like . When you come out of the hotel and walk towards 8th Avenue I was met with homeless people sleeping in door ways . Most were out their faces on weed or alcohol. I will say they never bothered me but the smell of drugs being blown in my face was not what I wanted I will say that most of the homeless that had cards up saying hungry still had money to have their cell/ mobile phones working . As I said lovely hotel just the wrong place for it . Read less

Found a new way to enter NYC, we left our vehicle in NJ and took the bus from East Rutherford into the Port Authority Bus Terminal. This put us less than a block from the Fairfield.

We sorted a new way to get into New York to save parking and trains. We now park in Jersey and take bus in. The bus authority is right across the street from the hotel and only steps from times square. Great stay. Super staff. Nice breakfast spread.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights. This hotel was booked by accident as we thought we had booked the Fairfield at the 33rd Street location (booking error on our end). However, our experience at the 40th street location was positive. Our room was nice and comfortable. We had a nice bed, soothing shower, good Wi-Fi and a decent amount of storage. The hotel offered free breakfast, which worked for our needs. A word of advice, try the breakfast as early as possible as the queue to get in gets a little long after 9 am. The elevators for the hotel traveled fast (something that is rare in NYC hotels). Location-wise, it worked well. We were close to Times Square, Port Authority (next door) and not far from Penn Station. We attended Comic Con at the Javits Center, which was only a 10 minute walk away. The A,C and E subway line was just down the street from the hotel entrance, which was very convenient. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. The lobby is a bit small and can get crowded at times. One note of negativity (and not directed toward the hotel) is there was some riff-raff and homeless folks as you got closer to 8th Ave. We didn't get harassed, but it was troublesome walking through the crowd with their drug activity and such, especially later at night. Maybe being close to Port Authority you get that presence. Otherwise, a very nice stay and would stay again. Read less
