A very nice hotel located north of the river. Short walk to most things of Chicago, and near a Chicago Bike Share rack which we used a lot. The hotel rooms are trendy, new, nicely decorated and overall really good. The breakfast is good with the most necessary food, a bit of both hot and cold alternatives. The WiFi was... More

As a travel agent, I had a group go to Chicago for a soccer tournament... I put them at the Fairfield Marriott/ Mag Mile and they enjoyed their stay very much. They had a combination of suites, kings, and queens and everyone was very happy with the room. As as the travel agent, this makes me happy. And on my... More

As an event planner, I booked a group block of 50 rooms for a two-day business meeting at the Gleacher Center. The rooms were super clean, yet small (but expected for a hotel on the Mile), comfortable and perfect. Our guests were pleasantly surprised to find the value for any hotel on the Mile and will definitely tell others. This... More

We just spent one evening here as we had an appointment with the Northwestern Medical center near by. The location was excellent for our visit as the back door opened right up to the medical facility and plenty of restaurants and Chicago attractions that were within sort walking distance. The staff was friendly and very helpful. A bit expensive for... More

First time here at Fairfield Inn but location was perfect. Usually stay a couple blocks away at Marriot, but this hotel was great to get in and out of and the price was much better than the other properties during the 2 days in Chicago.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Great location and the room was comfortable. I have two complaints: (1) the bathroom did not have an exhaust fan, and (2) the gym could have had some free weights. Otherwise, everything else appeared in order.

This hotel was perfect for our weekend stay in Chicago! It is literally just steps from the Magnificent Mile and there are quite a few restaurants right across the street. One of our favorites is Blaze Pizza and it is straight across street from hotel! The decor is trendy and really pretty. The only negative thing I would say is... 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.
