Located just across from the entrance to Arches National Park and minutes from downtown restaurants and attractions, the Fairfield Inn & Suites is an ideal home base for families who like to be out and about. Before leaving for the day, enjoy the complimentary hot breakfast and stock up on supplies at the Corner Market. When you return, cool off in the pool or relax in the hot tub.

We stayed in Moab for 2 nights, and as Marriott Titanium Elite members, we always pick Marriott as our first choice for hotel stays. This is an excellent hotel to stay at if you are in Moab. It's the closest hotel to the Arches National Park, BEAUTIFUL views from the grounds, and EASY access to the highway, and the main part of town. The room is spacious, the pool area is excellent, multiple pools, multiple hot tubs (shares with the other Marriott, so LOTS of facilities to use). The breakfast was also very good, for a free breakfast, and as always at Marriott, the staff is excellent. The hotel, at least our rooms facing the pool, was very quite, no road noise.
So, the reason this did not get 5 STARS is because on one gripe. and frankly, I can not believe that designers at Marriott allowed this to happen. There are 2 queen beds in our room, however, there was only ONE night table. So, if you were sleeping on the inside, between the 2 beds, you had access to the night table, with the clock and power. If you were sleeping on the outside parts of the beds, you had no night table, and no easy power. I had to put my suitcase there to use as a table for my phone to charge, and to access in the middle of the night if I got a text of call from work. In a day when you arrive at a hotel with a dozen devices for a family, I can not believe there is not sufficient table space at the head of each bed, with sufficient USB and Elec outlets. If they do not want to put 3 night tables there, at least mount a shelf next to the head of the outside beds, and attach a 4 outlet USB hub there.
Again, excellent hotel, should have gotten 5 stars, however, not having sufficient table space and USB access lowered the rating down from Excellent to Very Good. (oh, also, the cost was VERY HIGH for a Fairfield, taking advantage of the tourist coming to Moab).

We stayed her for 2 days and we loved the hotel. It's right on the Colorado river and they have the cutest benches you can sit and enjoy the view. It has a gorgeous pool with a waterfall. The rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast offered a lot of choices. The hotel is close to Arches and to restaurants. I would definitely stay there again
