“Fantastic Stay!!!!”
Reviewed April 16, 2008

Myself and a friend of mine stayed at this hotel for 3 nights at the end of March for a girlie shopping trip.
I have been all over america and have to say the free breakfast was one of the best I have had there is such a good range of food to suit everyones taste.

The check in was good and smooth. We got given a rom right at the end of the corridor on the 9th floor, which was quite, good size and clean. the maid service was brilliant even laid out our products for us, as we left them in a pile.

The staff were great, reccommending some resturants for us to try, I have to say concierge Robert was lovely - he was funny and really helpful.

The situation of the hotel is fantasic - one block from michigan avenue and is literally 2 min walk with subway next door and 7- eleven just down the side road.

I would have to say our overall stay was great and we had a fantastic time especially as my friend had never been before.

I would deffinately reccommend to friends and family and have done so already and when I go back to Chicago with my other half, We will deffinately be staying here as the price is right for the great service you get.

Thank you to the staff at Fairfield who made our holiday an even better one.

TIPS:

Got to go to signiture room at top of John hancock centre as sun is setting amazing view.
Warburtons (I think thats what it is called) steak house 16 oz new york strip best steakl i've ever had and huge portions - i swear they think they were feeding a family of 5 not 2 people.

Can't beat the location right downtown close to all. Service was very good and room was clean and large. Breakfast was better than expected and free. For the price you won't find a better deal. Not cheap to park your car there over night, but anywhere downtown costs to park. Highly recommend it.

my boyfriend and i stayed at the fairfield over a weekend in chicago and were extremely impressed. the location was great, and the room was nothing special but more than enough for the price. the continental breakfast was GREAT...one of the best i've had, and the make your own waffles were a great touch. the hotel doesn't have a pool, but being able to used the one at the nearby marriot on michigan avenue was awesome when we wanted to soak in a hottub after a long day of sightseeing. very close to many good restaurants, michigan avenue, millenium park, etc. i will definitely be back next time i'm in chicago!

What a lovely hotel. We were given a suite, which was absolutely beautiful. The rooms were very spacious and the beds were extremely comfortable. The hotel is located within walking distance of the Magnificent Mile. Breakfast was provided at no additional charge and was the best we experienced on a 16 State USA tour.

We spent a night here. We got a great deal, it was like $150 and that included valet with in/out privileges ($40) and 2 tkts to the Field Museum ($50).
The room is a little on the small side, but it's very clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel is located 2 blocks from Michigan ave. There are no restaurants in the hotel, but there are a bunch of good ones nearby.
We were very happy and definitely will look to stay here again in the future.

The Fairfield is clean and newly renovated, with an attractive (if minimal) lobby. Free WiFi is available in the lobby and the 2nd-floor breakfast room; I also managed to find some other WiFi from my fifth-floor room. Breakfast is good, as free hotel breakfasts go. If you've got business downtown, the location can't be beat. Very firm and comfortable mattress. Friendly, helpful staff. A great value for the price!

  • Liked — Clean and comfortable at a reasonable price

Chicago's Marriott Fairfield was a great place to stay on Magnificent Mile without paying a mortgage payment for four nights. I have stayed in more than 5 different hotels in downtown Chicago (I prefer 4-5 star hotels). The average price is at least $350 or more per night. However, I have never visited Chicago in November and it seems that the okay hotels wanted more than $300 per night and the luxury hotels wanted $499 and up per night which is absolutely crazy unless you are a "rock star." If you are a parent visiting your college kid, all of your money is needed to spend on your struggling college student (smile). The hotel was very very clean, staff were very polite, the continental breakfast was the best and inclusive in your daily room rate. And, if you are driving and need to get to the expressway, it is a straight route to major thoroughfares.

I am glad that I decided to stay at the Marriott Fairfield and would definitely stay again. It was in a great location. And for those folks who gave the hotel a low rating, they are probably unhappy in their lives and are a pain in the ...................... for most people they meet. Also, I've stayed in many European hotels that were more costly and much much smaller. In comparison, the room was like a suite and the beds more comfortable.
