I just returned for travel from business & selected this hotel for proximity to workplace. I'm often use Marriot hotels for all business travel (30+ nights/year) having used all sub-brands & price points.
For $179 per night for Fairfield Inn... I would have expected a cleaner & more updated establishment. While the Cust Service was very nice, the room and general area seemed musty smelling, old/outdated. Only available eating was TGIF , some small restaurants across the street & some other hotel sports bar.
Breakfast was typical of most Courtyard, Springhills Suites, etc.
For the price paid per night, I changed hotels to Courtyard Chicago Downtown (on Ontario) for about same price per night (though have to deal with parking $ for downtown and be walking distance to Magnificent Mile & all different choices for dining.
Only plus items: (1) proximity to MDW, (2) still drivable distance via streets to Downtown (20-25 min). Cons: (1) area north of MDW is industrial & what looks like lower class area, (2) limited dining options for relative area of MDW hotel area, and (3) just as much $$$ as Downtown Chicago.
