We stayed here last New Year's eve and it was very accessible to Magnificent Mile and Navy Pier. The hotel is very simple and little spacious. The hotel staffs were friendly. Things go wrong sometimes, their fire alarm kept on ringing in the morning and disturbed our sleep ended up waking up early in the morning and checked out. As... More

This hotel is very modern. My hotel room had hardwood floors. The service was excellent and friendly. The room was typical city room which is to say it was small, but clean. The location is a block and half off Michigan Ave which was great.

I don't think I have ever stayed at a hotel with friendlier staff. I was always greeted upon entering and leaving the hotel. The staff went out of their way to help me with any questions I had. The hotel rooms are very comfortable. The only problems I had with the rooms were the paper thin walls (you can hear... More

I have stayed here several times and have never had a negative experience. The staff is SO friendly and helpful- they allowed me to adjust my checkout time because I was in a tight situation, and held our bags all day for us. All are kind and social. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and stylish, all recently redone this spring.... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night only during a quick weekend getaway. The price for the location seemed to be better than most other options and we were definitely pleased with the location. We like walking and pretty much everything we wanted to see was within a 2-3 mile walk. We parked in the lot the hotel... More

We spent the Easter weekend at the Fairfield Magnificent Mile Chicago. The service was outstanding and the room was clean and updated (although a bit small). The hotel was within walking distance of shopping, activities, and dining. I would recommend this hotel.

We have stayed here many times in the past 3 yrs. While the rooms are small, it is a good location and offers free breakfast. The staff are friendly. However, since the new renovation, the rooms are a lot less functional! In the place where clothes were hang there used to be a standard bar spanning approximately 3', now there... More

Price couldn't be beat for the group of 35 students and 24 parents staying one night. Clean spacious and the staff worked well to make for a great stay. Breakfast did NOT disappoint as both hot and cold offerings were continuously re-stocked. Bus parking $30 per night at McCormick Place but to park a car nearby is $38. Location perfect... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
