Well-appointed hotel with good access to the university town of Ann Arbor
Located south-east of Downtown Ann Arbor close to many of the University of Michigans facilities, the Fairfield Inn Ann Arbor is an ideal accommodation spot for visitors heading to the university or those looking to those attending the Michigan city on business.
The hotel is also positioned well for those looking to visit the citys leisure attractions, or searching for a base of operations to explore the likes of Lansing and Detroit from.
This 3-star property consists of 110 guestrooms, all of which feature private bathroom facilities. Bedrooms have been designed to offer top-notch comfort, making use of thicker mattresses and luxury bedding, a soft reading chair and a stylish ottoman.
Each room is also fitted with a number of electrical amenities, including cable television (with HBO and pay-per-view movies), internet access (wired and wireless), tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, and a number of data ports. A complimentary newspaper delivery service is also offered.
Guests at the hotel can enjoy a spot of exercise in the indoor swimming pool or the well-equipped fitness room. A whirlpool and table-tennis are also available. Other services found within the property include coin-operated laundry, coffee in the lobby, vending machines, valet dry-cleaning, and safe deposit boxes. Guests can enjoy a continental breakfast in the morning or can request dinner delivery from a local restaurant.
Visitors to the Fairfield Inn Ann Arbor will find many of the citys attractions close by. Those that enjoy a sport of retail therapy will benefit from the positioning of both the Briarwood Mall and Waters Place Shopping Center, both of which can be found just a few blocks from the hotel. As well as catching up on Michigan styles and fashions, shoppers are sure to find a souvenir or a bargain along the way.
Due to its close proximity, many of the University of Michigans (U-M) campuses and facilities can be found nearby. Included amongst these are the U-M Museum of Art, the U-M Matthaei Botanical Gardens, and U-M Golf Course. Michigan Stadium, or The Big House as it is colloquially known, hosts the U-M Wolverines football team. On game day the attendance at the stadium regularly exceeds 110,000 (almost the same size as the population of the city) generating an atmosphere that has to be seen to be believed.
Amongst the other attractions within Ann Arbor is the Michigan Theater, a former movie house that now also hosts live performances. The building, which was originally built in 1928, offers a unique view to the East Liberty Street faade, and includes its original pipe organ, a stunning sight in itself.
Other features that often prove popular with tourists include the Gerald R. Ford Library and Nichols Arboretum, both found on the U-M campuses, as well as Ann Arbor Hands on Museum.
Those staying at the Fairfield Inn Ann Arbor willing to travel can also head to the likes of Detroit and the state capital, Lansing. Alternatively, Ford Lake, which is located south-east of the city, and the Waterloo State Recreational Park (west) both offer a slice of outdoor landscapes.
