I arrived late, had an upgrade to a King Suite that had a recent (very) makeover. The only complaint was a missing hair dryer. Renovation is to be complete by early March but unwound recommend the location and staff highly. Nice Fairfield Inn near the Magnificent Mile.

I stayed here for a conference in town and really enjoyed it. The staff is very kind and the rooms are comfortable and clean. The hotel was going through some renovation, but that did not affect my stay. The most important aspect of it is the location; you are a short walk to Michigan Avenue and there are multiple restaurants... More

Staff are very welcoming and friendly. Location is great and we had everything we needed to be very comfortable. Breakfast was average but good enough to get us going before we had to go out in the cold.

We stayed here over Christmas this year as our daughter was critically ill and in the ICU at Northwestern Hospital. The rates were very affordable during the shopping season. The room we had was small, but we only slept there a few hours at a time. It is noisy, as there was construction next door and dumpsters are being dumped... More
