Situated near the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and the Cajundome Convention Center, this hotel is also near the Lafayette Regional Airport. A free airport shuttle is available at the hotel Monday through Friday. After a day of traveling, families can spend some quality time at the outdoor pool, which overlooks the Vermilion River. The kids will love to take a dip while the adults relax on the surrounding pool deck chairs. The comfortable guestrooms and suites feature king or queen beds, a sleeper sofa in a separate living room area, mini-fridge, microwave and flat screen television. Cribs are available upon request. Complimentary Wi-Fi access can be found in the guestrooms as well so there is never a concern about staying connected to work, home or school while visiting Lafayette. The free hot breakfast buffet with eggs, waffles, hot and cold cereal, fruit, yogurt and more is a great way for families to start the morning.

My spouse and I decided to stay in an upgraded King suite. The sleep area is separate from the living / dining area. The hotel is listed as a Smoke Free Property and signage exiting to the outdoor pool area indicates the same. Just don't expect that to be enforced. We tried to enjoy swimming when 2 non swimmer smokers invaded the area to sit and smoke instead of 25ft from front door where there is a smoking area. Breakfast was great but opened late on Sunday morning.
Fairfield Inn & Suites consistently performs above expectations. The staff are always friendly from the front desk to the maid service. Take advantage of the breakfast as it is fresh and provides options for all types of diets.
