“Need to update accommodations... for what can be just the same $$$ as Downtown Chicago”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

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 While the Cust Service was very nice, the room and general area seemed musty smelling, old/outdated.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.

Of course in Chicago, you are going to pay more to be downtown - but you will also pay more if you want to be close to Midway Airport if you are flying in and out of there. This hotel is only a couple miles from the airport, so it's certainly convenient. We came into town with no reservation and first tried the Holiday Inn next door ($200 a night) - similar for the Marriott and HIlton here - all these hotels are in a hotel 'circle' right next to each other. The Fairfield Inn was $170 a night (with AAA discount) and all the properties charge for parking ($13 a night) - they claim it's due to airport regulations. Which is why I only gave it an average - the value is inflated due to location. The room was fine, but an extremely small bathroom area - only about 6 inches on either side of the sink for your 'stuff'. There's a small pool/jacuzzi and fitness area. The breakfast is very nice - they make waffles for you, plus have egg sandwiches/omelettes you can heat up in the micro along with all the standard continental breakfast items. The staff was nice. I used my own car, so can't comment on the walk to the El, etc., but this is really not such the 'bad neighborhood' that everyone seems to comment on. Costco/Walmart/Target right down the street for any needed items. Only 9 miles from downtown/Lakeshore drive. A TGI Fridays across the parking lot - food was good, service was a little spotty, but it was popular.

Came in for a convention and was one of the best options I could find. The room was clean but there were stains on the chair, floor which kind of creeped me out. Location does not seem to be in a good area. We felt safe but didn't want to leave the compound of hotels to go elsewhere.

location was a little far, but the place is exrtremely nice and quite, very difficult to find a cab from the place although, the breakfast felt like eating at home, cozy place, but the hotel has no restaurant (neighbouring one has although)

I woke up the first morning after staying at the Inn, COVERED in bed bug bites. I had never gotten them before and did not know what they were, but over a week later, being still very red, itchy and boethersome, it was confirmed by a dermatologist. I called the Inn twice to inform them, and was hung up on both times. Calls left with management have also gone unanswered. After looking on the internet it seems many people have contacted the Inn to complain or inform them of their problem, yet the staff their denied hearing anything about it when I spoke with them. The friends I stayed with in the room also have bites. I've washed all my clothing and bedding here at home to make sure I havent taken the bugs with me back home. Will never go there again.

This hotel was a great cheaper alternative to staying in downtown. The airport shuttle runs every 20min and will take you back and forth whenever needed so you can catch a plane or the train to the city. The orange line goes right from the airport to the Loop and from there you can get anywhere. The hotel was clean and we didn't notice any excessive noise from the planes. There is breakfast each morning with a decent variety of things healthy and not, and a pool and fitness center. The desk staff was very helpful with answers to questions, menues and general things. They always greeted you and smiled when you came through the lobby. I would stay here again. Regarding the bedbugs, I stayed the same weekend and my husband and I didn't have any trouble with bugs, itching or marks. It must have been an isolated incident. We stayed 4 nights over memorial day weekend.

Yes, with all the traveling that I do, I have never experienced bed bugs until the stay at Fairfield at Midway airport in Chicago.
I got 13 bites, saw 2 bugs the next day and management denied that there was any bugs! They said they inspected the bed and nothing was there. They would not help other than change our room. DO NOT STAY THERE!!!!
