I was travelling for business and found the Fairfield a comfortable modern hotel, with exellent amenities, right in the heart of Chicago. Hotel has it all, comfortable suite, large comfortable bed, large bathroom, closets, living room. I could work, rest and find great restaurants, shops all within walking distance.

This hotel is very small, but the location is 1 block east of Michigan Avenue. We walked to Gino's Pizza and they gave us a "priority seating" voucher at the Bell Desk which came in handy. The lobby is very small, but modern and cozy. 2nd floor breakfast area was large, clean, well stocked and good. Our 2 queen room was very clean. Our room was right by elevator on 7th floor, but we couldn't even hear it run! Would recommend!

After reading the many, many positive reviews, I didn't have any worries about booking a stay here for a weekend getaway w/ a friend. And...as expected...we had a very good experience. The lobby is small but very sleek & modern. Every staff member was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean & comfortable. Even though the hotel is in a GREAT location, just a block & half off Michigan Ave, it was too cold for us wimps to walk around so we cabbed instead. Valet parking is only $9 more and worth it because the self park is on the next street over and down a little, plus it offers in/out privileges.

We had reserved a room w/ two doubles and asked to be away from the elevators since my friend & I are both light sleepers. We were told that all the doubles are by the elevators & the kings make up the rest of the rooms on each floor, but were assured that there was soundproofing so we shouldn't hear the elevator noise. We were happy to find this true- we didn't hear a PEEP from the elevators, just the crying baby next door.

A breakfast buffet is included which had all the standard cereal, yogurt, bagels, juice etc, plus hard boiled eggs, oatmeal, a waffle maker & batter and breakfast sandwiches & mini-quiches that you could heat in the microwave.

It's not a 5 star plush hotel w/ fancy robes and such but you can't beat the cleanliness & value for the money here.

The only negative was that we came back after a long Saturday night out & were planning to watch a pay-per-view movie, but the tv's do not have that option. Oh well...minor detail.

Thanks Fairfield- I will definitely be back!

We was to the FairField Chicago for 3 nights in September, and that was second stay in "Marriott" hotels in Chicago.

This hotel had really good price (for good room, large, with sofa, 2 tv's) at a higher floor.

The room (bed) was confy, the hotel is really near Michigan Ave, good restaurants near the room and parking near the hotel.

I go back to Chicago next month and I will go back to this hotel!

We came downtown for some Christmas shopping, the location couldn't have been better for this. The room was very spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast was very good. Staff is excellent, they couldn't have been more accomidating. Definitely recommend to others and will try to stay here again when going into the city.

My family and I stayed here over the Thanksgiving weekend. it was easy to find and very conveniently located to all the touristy things in Chicago. The front desk staff was very polite and the valet was great. The room was clean and surprisingly quiet. The bed was a little uncomfortable but I am like "The Princess and the Pea". There is a great breakfast place right down the street and very good Indian restaurant located above it. Coffee is served 24 hrs a day on the second floor. The internet was not WIFI....I guess that is my only complaint.

We are due to check-in tomorrow. we have been there before and know that the front desk is very accommodating and the people very pleasant. Breakfast was great last time. The lobby is small but very nice to be in.
Bus routes are down the block and taxis are usually waiting as it is a big enough property.
