I travel almost every week and have stayed at over 70 nights in Marriott this year. This Fairfield in NYC is the worst!!!!
The internet was VERY slow and they keep giving me stories why it would not work. The coffee was never full during my 4 night stay. I could continue, but it would not *** value. I would NOT stay at this location, if I was you. The typicall focus to detail was not there.
I will not say here again!!!

Located directly across the street from Silvercup Studios East, the Fairfield Inn Long Island City Manhattan View on Van Dam St is located on the border of Long Island City and historic Greenpoint, Brooklyn's northernmost charming neighborhood and home to New York's largest Polish immigrant community.
The Fairfield Inn is a stone's throw from Interstate 495, a major east-west elevated artery that feeds directly into the Midtown Tunnel into Manhattan.

With the exception of Silvercup Studios East, Greenpoint to the south, Hunter's Point to the west, Sunnyside and Sunnyside Gardens to the north, the area is largely industrial sprinkled with 10-12 story billboards that can be seen by commuters as they dart in and out of Manhattan. The major attraction is Silvercup, a full service film and TV production facility - home of the notorious Sopranos set.
I have no idea if celebrities stay there, more likely TV and film production crew members. Unless you have wheels, or you travel by taxi, the hotel is very difficult to get to. I'm very familiar with the location. Van Dam Street feeds into Greenpoint Avenue, one of a few convenient and quick short-cuts into Brooklyn. When visiting Brooklyn, this is a favorite route especially if we have an appetite for some special pastries and comfort foods that the neighborhood offers.
If Manhattan is fully booked and you find yourself here, consider taking a cab to Manhattan Ave in Greenpoint and take the 'M' subway line from there. The experience will be full of charming surprises and memorable views of the eastside of Manhattan.
Now, if the service at the Fairfield Inn falls short of expectations, consider writing Customer.Care@Marriott.com and place your 8 digit Confirmation # in the subject. Hope these tips help.
Couldn't possibly be worse then the Marriott in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. I have stayed at the Fairfield your talking about an had an "it's OK" attitude about it. I think when management cares then the staff cares. Obviously this management team could use a boost and start doing their jobs correctly. Especially for the prices that you pay.
