GADSDEN, ALABAMA -- For anyone passing through northeastern Alabama I recommend the Fairfield Inn & Suites off of I-59 exit 181, where I am currently staying now on my way back home to Texas. This beautiful facility just opened in April 2009 and still has that "new hotel smell." The staff is also very professional, and the desk clerk, Gerald, was so kind and helpful that my wife described him as a "sweetie." There is also a very good Ruby Tuesdays restaurant right across the street and an easy walk from the hotel at which my wife and I had a very enjoyable meal.
Fairfield Inn & Suites Gadsden is located at 116 Walker Street,
Gadsden, AL 35904; (256) 538-2100.
