Yes, very much on the road again and loving it! Just minutes from historic downtown Woodland and Sacramento, I couldn't be happier. While not usually the chain hotel traveler, these brands are working hard to please their mostly business clientele, but everyone will feel at home here.
This newly-opened (March 2016) Fairfield Inn & Suites Sacramento Airport Woodland (a mouthful) is very freeway close! But inside the cocooned comfort of my king-room, the world is quiet and peaceful. Love the work space. Yes, always working.
From the street, you wouldn't expect to find this uber-cool mid-century modern interior. Kudos to the design team. Sleek and colorful. I could live here. Wait! I've already moved in. I only wish these decor classics would fit into my own MCM abode.
All the amenities for business travel including free WiFi, both PC and Apple computers in the lobby, complimentary breakfast, in-room microwave, mini-fridge and coffeemaker, and FREE shuttle to Sacramento International Airport -- with 24-hour advance notice. Outdoor pool and whirlpool -- yet to be explored. Of course, a fitness center where, yes, I actually worked out! Hey, long days of wining and dining require I squeeze in a short cardio workout at the crack of dawn. There are outlets galore in sleeping and breakfast room. You won't have to search or move furniture to find them. Brilliant!
Love, love, love the bathroom. Also, very modern and spacious -- thank you very much! The walk-in shower is HUGE! So far, my only ding would be to say they need plushier towels. Also, reminders to conserve water should be an absolute requirement.
For leisure and business travelers, proximity to historic Woodland means dining and wining local. Don't let the small town moniker fool you. Woodland is up and coming plus (remember) Yolo County back roads and great adventures to other local wineries, breweries, and agricultural bounty. Slowly working my way down the list, Morgan's on Main, Savory Cafe, Ludy's On Main - it's exhausting work but I'm just the Are You That Woman to get the job done. Catch your breath and drop by Woodland's new wine bar, Uvaggio, for a little pre- or post-dining wine, cheese, and dessert. Yum!
Dashing off now. Visit Yolo daytime adventures await.
