Fairfield isn't a full line Marriott but you might not know it based on the attitude of the staff. One of the most friendly staffs that I've run across in a few years. Rooms were nice, well appointed. Little short on closet space but at the price I couldn't complain. We booked a few months in advance and got an... More

What a great stay, got a bargain online which included valet parking and breakfast daily. The room was excellent, loved the décor in both the room and reception area. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The location could not be better. Had no problems with noise and our room was definitely updated and modern.

I needed to book a hotel last minute for a work trip and was very concerned about price. I was a little hesitant to book this room because the price was "too good to be true" and I figured it was going to be filthy and uncomfortable. But it was an excellent hotel! Kind of boutique-y, very lovely, modern lobby.... More

Right on the magnificent mile. The Staff very friendly and accommodating. Their inclusive breakfast has a nice healthy variety. I felt safe walking in the day and night in that area. I would definitely go back to this hotel.

The staff was super friendly and attentive, but this hotel needs a major update. The rooms and "amenities" compare to that of a Fairfield in the middle of nowhere. It doesn't feel like Chicago. Our room was freezing and never properly heated, until we awoke in the middle of the night to the smell of an overheating furnace. We had... More

Stayed here for a special event at the United Center and some Christmas shopping on the Mag Mile. This hotel is a very short walk to great shopping and Garrett's popcorn. There are good restaurants close by as well. The room was a little loud but it's a hotel and I expect that. We were right by the elevator and... More

Noisy rooms that smell like somebody puked into a corner, just overlayed by bottles of room spray they injected. After complaining, we got another room that was even worse. I stayed for over 120 nights in hotels of the Marriott chain, this one clearly made it to the bottom of that list. The location is good, but that is the... More

If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, and friendly hotel with great free breakfast - this is it. I've brought a school group here two years in row from Tennessee and am online booking a third.

Fairfield Inn is right in the heart of downtown Chicago. While it is not on Michigan Avenue, it is a short walk from many of the major downtown areas. The hotel offers good views of the city. The rooms are good size and the breakfast is typical of Fairfield Inn. Hotel is well maintained and very clean and a good... More

The hotel is located a block east of Michigan Ave. Can't beat this location. Capital Grill steakhouse next door, Epic Burger across the street. In other words, everything is within walking distance. The room was ok. Clean, with a pullout sofa. Bed was ok. Not the most comfortable. There was a fridge in our room also. The complimentary hot breakfast... More
