Dating back to 1890, the stylish Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Keene Downtown was once Keene’s Goodnow Department Store. Today, it belongs to the venerable Historic Hotels of America and is “the only high-end place to stay in town,” says Travel + Leisure, following a full renovation in 2011.
The location is ideal, overlooking Main Street (famed as the widest Main Street in America at 172 feet), and steps from the shops and restaurants in town. Nearby is the Colonial Theatre, Horatio Colony Museum and the Keene Swamp Bats’ home ground. Monadnock Mountain is a 30-minute drive away – it is reputed to be second only to Japan’s Mount Fuji as the most hiked mountain in the world.
Although remodeled in 2011, the hotel still has original features such as exposed brick walls and 12-foot ceilings. Cozy up to the lobby fireplace while sipping complimentary coffee and pastries in the morning, as well as free drinks during cocktail hour from 6-7pm every evening. Next door, Fireworks restaurant serves Italian fare and beer from a range of local breweries, and can prepare take-out dishes for dining in-room.
The rooms are spacious and all have queen or king beds (some also have sofa beds), desks, Jacuzzis, and Keurig coffee makers. The sleek two-level loft room includes a living room with a sofa bed, two bathrooms and two flat-screen TVs, and the King Suite has a whirlpool tub. Request a room at the back to ensure a quiet night’s sleep – Main Street can be noisy at night. Pet-friendly accommodations are also available (extra charge applies).
