As with any hotel that is under renovation I have a really hard time recommending the hotel during that time obviously the noise level is a big issue to me and depending on where you're at in the hotel a lot of times you run into Construction mess I believe that the hotel is going to look very nice when...

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

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in December while attending the UK vs UCLA basketball game. It was a clean basic no frills hotel. However for the price you pay and location you can't go wrong.

This was a really great hotel, especially for the price. It was two blocks away from the Magnificent Mile with plenty of food choices in walking distance. I booked it for $89/night and parked in a nearby parking garage for $38/night which was validated by the hotel. The room was very clean and we were provided with a very comfortable... More

We had a great stay at this hotel the week before thanksgiving. The price and location were right, the room was a good size for a downtown hotel. However, my husband and I left our expensive sunglasses in the room and didn't realize it until we were over an hour away. I left a message for 'lost and found' and... More

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
