Up Close And Personal: Guests Can Experience The Marvels Of Fleet Week When They Stay With Fairfield Inn & Suites On The Lower East Side

This Memorial Day, guests can be steps away from the excitement of the 27th Annual Fleet Week, the city's time-honored celebration of the sea services, when they stay with Fairfield Inn & Suites New York Manhattan/Downtown East. The hotel's convenient location in Manhattan's vibrant Lower East Side makes it easy to explore all of Lower Manhattan and other Downtown attractions such as the World Trade Center, South Street Seaport and Wall Street areas. As always, qualified government employees and military personnel are eligible for special rates and offers.

Fleet Week kicks off May 20 with over 1,500 Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen participating in an exciting lineup of events including concerts, parades, firework shows, flyovers, exhibits and more. Just minutes away from the hotel, guests can witness a parade of more than 20 vessels from the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Coast Guard and the Military Sealift Command as they sail up the Hudson River.

"It's a special day honoring the brave men and women who fought to protect our freedom," adds General Manager William Xu. "As the unofficial start of summer in the city, it's the perfect time to explore the Big Apple."

Hotel guests are invited to start their morning off right with a complimentary hot breakfast buffet at the hotel lobby, or take a stroll through the iconic Little Italy area for a taste of the neighborhood. After a day of festivities, guests can relax at the hotel's cozy bedrooms, which offer space and serenity in the middle of Downtown Manhattan's buzz, as well as exceptional views to the waterside and the Manhattan Bridge.

Depending upon date of stay, room rates begin at $179 per night, excluding tax, gratuity and other incidental charges. Available offers include the Big Apple Adventure offer, featuring round trip transportation for two to a local attraction of choice, and special rates for military qualified government employees and military personnel starting at $149 per night.
