We took our three kids to Chicago for a long weekend. We chose the Fairfield because we were able to use points and it allowed us to put 5 in a room. We were disappointed because it only had 2 double beds. They did bring us a cot, but it made things a little crowded. The hotel room was fine.... More

Such an awesome staff, clean rooms and perfect location. Great breakfast!! They even have waffles. The staff was very helpful with any questions I asked and always were very positive. I also loved the location. It was so easy to walk to everything, from shopping to the sights, to restaurants to the subway.

I stayed at this hotel for a weekend with friends. The location of the hotel was great. Some of the amenities however were overstated. The breakfast was standard fare: scrambled eggs, pork sausage, waffle maker, boiled eggs, cereal, pastries, etc. The beds were small for a double, but adequate. The gym was a joke. There were two ellipticals and a... More

A few of us decided to spend a long weekend in Chicago. Having never been there before, we settled on the Magnificent Mile/touristy area. The Fairfield was one of the lower priced hotels in the area and we decided to give it a try. Online, it resembles most other Fairfield level Marriott properties, but in real-life it is so much...

Spent the weekend here with my wife and we were pleased. The room was fairly small and reminded me of a European style room. It was only a place to sleep since we were in the city most of the time. We did have an air conditioning problem and the staff was very quick to actually replace our air conditioner... More

Great location. Furnishings are a little bit outdated. Very busy breakfast room. WiFi is not working for most of our phones/iPads/iPods (only works on Nexus 5). Toilet was not flushing, but it was fixed quickly. When I asked if I could get any discount on the parking fee (I thought it might be available as I'm a Silver elite member... More

Great location, very friendly people, nice, brand new rooms with amenities. Very good breakfast bar included in the price with some healthy options and helpful staff. Surprised no bar or restaurant except breakfast but plenty nearby. One negative is the fire station across the street but not enough to say don't stay here.

After reading a lot of reviews, we chose this hotel for our our stay during our first trip to Chicago to play tourist. We stayed 3 nights 7/13/14 to 7/16/14. The location cant be beat - its one block off the Magnificent Mile and in a very safe area. Timothy O'Toole's Irish Bar is on the opposite corner of the... More

GREAT PEOPLE!! Aside from the obviously great location. The staff was amazing! They accommodated our group as best as possible. Our weekend events flowed smoothly thanks to your staff. The staff at this hotel goes above and beyond the expectation of their duties from hailing cabs (since we were running late) to moving boxes from a room to another. I... More
