NEW BEDFORD, MA – Lafrance Hospitality Company’s Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott has been named number six on the Huffington Post’s ‘Ten Best Hotel Room Views’ for the Northeast/East USA Edition. Travel writer Malerie Yolen-Cohen states that “this new hotel hard by the working docks took a big leap of faith when it opened several years ago. Now, rooms are nearly 100 percent occupied in season, because more and more tourists who are traveling to Boston or the Cape or who come off the high-speed Vineyard Ferry across the street are choosing to stay overnight. With helpful friendly staff, this chain hotel feels more like a B&B. Ask for a room facing the commercial fishing fleet. By virtue of its scallop industry, New Bedford is the most profitable fishing port in the country, and watching the ships coming and going in the harbor from your room is unexpectedly thrilling.”
Lafrance Hospitality and the New Bedford hotel are honored to be a part of this list, which also includes the Millennium Bostonian Hotel, Lake Placid Lodge, Loews Hotel – Philidelphia and other unique properties. The Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott is one of just two international brands that are on this list. New Bedford has a great future ahead of it and the Fairfield Inn & Suites is thrilled to be a part of this charming town!
