Thank you
I've never stayed there but I am booked for the 8th of Aug (returning the 19th) We got our room for $99 including 2 weeks parking. The only thing is that we must check in after 10pm. This works for us b/c we want to leave Whitby around 8 o'clock when the kids normally go to sleep that way hopefully they will fall asleep in the car and not wake up till the next morning! I couldn't find this price for reserv. on-line but I called the hotel directly and booked it.

I continue to be amazed at the prices and the simplicity of flying out of buffalo. After our march break trip I swore I would never go from Toronto again. We just last Sunday booked our christmas flights to orlando. We are going december 22nd and they actually had 99.00 seats.!! Less than 1000.00 for the 4 of us !!! and wayyyy less stress and time than going from Toronto. Oh and toronto was 3200.00 and even Jet blue was 1640.00 so this was greeeaat.

Easy fast and cheap.

Good DTW Hotel Needed

Can anyone tell me of a clean and decently priced hotel near DTW that has the park and fly program? I am having trouble finding one where the reviews on tripadvisor don't say it's a rathole, or the price isn't astronomical.

Thanks so much!!

We stayed at the Fairfield Marriott earlier this month and we would definitely stay there again. We paid $99/night, although I see the P&F rate is now up to $109. That includes up to 8 days parking at Qwik Park which is literally next door. The Fairfield is rated #1 on the TripAdvisor web site for Romulus-area hotels.

Hotel is very clean (anything would be, compared to the HoJo just up the street where we stayed last time) and breakfast starts at 5:30 just off the lobby. The pool looked OK (but small) but we didn't make use of it. The rooms was very nice with a brand-new plasma TV and free high-speed Internet access.

Gotta agree with Mike
We stayed there before trip at March break this year.
We were told the hotel had not yet been open a year, I guess that's why everything was still in such nice shape.Also, probably why they weren't prepared for the Canadian March break exodus though, as they did not seem to know why the whole hotel had been booked up Friday and Sat. night
The kids were in the pool, it was nice, nice work out area next to it.
There are computers in the lobby that you can use to check into your airline, and print boarding passes(great when using SWA).
Breakfast was great. We didn't leave 'till 2pm, so asked for late check out-no problem.
Pickup at the airport on the way back was very good.
Would stay there again, anytime.

Thanks for the info on Fairfield MikeJ and Petbren! That was the hotel I was leaning towards.

Can either of you tell me how often the shuttle runs to the airport?

We just drove our van over, literately, across the parking lot. The attendant asks where you are going, and tells you where to park, and the little bus just came over and picked us up and drove us to the airport, no wait time at all.

My husband is a professional truck driver, and for them, it's a well known fact that Sarnia is quicker and easier (plus, more reasonable guards) than Windsor. Professional drivers try to avoid Windsor whenever possible.

My DD and I are going to WDW in October. I have enough Airmiles to get one seat and was so excited about that, figuring I was saving a bundle,,, BUT when I called I found out you have to pay the taxes! So, for me and my daughter to fly out of Toronto with a connecting flight throuigh Montreal, it was still going to cost $859.00

I wasn't too sure about traveling to Detroit by myself but now with this shuttle service I am all set......now I have to start checking for prices from Detroit...

Thanks to everyone who has posted here, it has been very helpful
My hubby is a Wingham boy...well, Whitechurch, lol. We live in Ripley now! What a small world after all!

Who did you book with? Southwest just came out with their rates today for Christmas and New Year's and they were alot more than that. It was going to be just over $1100 for my DH and myself (we have got 4 flights out of Buffalo to Orlando the end of September for $800 return). We always fly out of Buffalo (we love that airport) but unless rates come down somewhat I will be cancelling our first DVC vacation.

That's good to know. We are staying there in September. We stayed at the La Quinta last time which is on the other side of the driveway (The Fairfield was not finished yet). I had no complaints staying there however our travel agent booked us into the Fairfield saying she had had some complaints about the La Quinta.
