Whether you are looking for a budget hotel or luxury hotel, these are our picks for the 5 best hotels near Fairfield University.

#1 – Circle Hotel Fairfield

Circle Hotel Fairfield

– $$$

– Fairfield, CT

– 4 minute drive to Fairfield University

The closest hotel to the university is also our favorite – but Circle Hotel offers much more than just having a great location.

First of all, we love the design – sort of classy/old school New England house meets a modern/boutique hotel. The rooms are big and bright, the beds and pillows are super comfy, and a free continental breakfast is served daily. If you make it in the summer, be sure to have a swim in the seasonal pool!



#2 – The Inn at Fairfield Beach

The Inn at Fairfield Beach

– $$$$

– Fairfield, CT

– 7 minute drive to Fairfield University

Just a 1 minute walk to the beach, the Inn at Fairfield Beach is the best hotel on our list for a nice, relaxing stay.

We love how clean everything is, and how cozy the beds are. And the rooms are quite big! So big that many of them come equipped with a living area, and a kitchenette! Guests rave about the free continental breakfast, as well as the amazing and helpful staff.



#3 – Delamar Southport

Delamar Southport

– $$$$

– Southport, CT

– 5 minute drive to Fairfield University

Located in neighboring Southport, Delamar Southport is a beautiful hotel set in a charming old building.

While the free breakfast is stellar, we are most impressed by just how clean the hotel is, and how comfy and cozy the rooms are (it probably doesn’t hurt that all rooms come equipped with a fireplace!). Extra points for the on-site bar and restaurant.



#4 – Best Western Plus Fairfield Hotel

Guests love the modern design and overall cleanliness of the Best Western Plus Fairfield, plus you can’t go wrong with free hot breakfast!

This hotel also has super comfy beds, and is located in a calm and quiet part of town, making it a great hotel if you are looking for a good night’s rest. Extra points for free wifi.



#5 – Holiday Inn Bridgeport-Trumbull-Fairfield

Holiday Inn Bridgeport-Trumbull-Fairfield

– $$$

– Bridgeport, CT

– 9 minute drive to Fairfield University

Boasting an indoor pool and clean fitness center – there’s a lot to like about Holiday Inn Bridgeport.

The rooms are really big, and the beds and pillows are super comfortable. The hotel is well-located near restaurants and bars, but if you want to eat at the hotel, you’ll be pleased to know there are on-site options as well 🙂
