“Great location, great price”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

This hotel was terrific for a weekend in the city. Just 2 blocks off Michigan Avenue and situated half way between Water Tower Place and the Wrigley Bldg on the river. Rooms were clean and efficient. Breakfast was self-serve but more than the usual "make your own waffles." Best of all, the price was right. You could self-pack in a nearby lot and get a substantial price break.

There for a 3 day dental convention. Stayed in King Bed room-had living room with TV, couch, chair, table and separate bedroom with TV, closet. Another closet by entry door and bathroom. Very clean, beautifully decorated with high quality sheets and furnishings, and Paul Mitchel shampoo, etc. Huge selection and fully stocked complimentary breakfast for any dietary requirements. 24 hour coffee/tea beverages available. Plenty of restaurants and stores all in walking distance. I will be staying here yearly, every February.

My daughter had an interview at Northwestern's Feinberg Medical School which is very close to the Fairfield Inn & Suites Downtown. Everything about our stay was perfect! Now, it is a Fairfield so we knew we knew up front not to expect fancy schmancy...but we did get super clean and comfy rooms (with the Paul Mitchell shampoo & conditioner I like!), nice free breakfast, great location close to Magnificent Mile, good rates, and a SUPER friendly and helpful staff...always cheerful, joking, asking if we needed anything...just wonderful!!

We love the location and service at this hotel. It is within walking distance of great shopping and excellent restaurants. This hotel offers packages with parking that make it a deal that cannot be beat! The rooms are quiet and clean! The staff goes above and beyond to make sure that our stay is the best, with the exception of the one gentleman working as a valet who ignored us upon our last arrival! He was not a member of the valet staff that we recognized and have appreciated in the past. Fortunately, he was not there when we left, and as a result, we got excellent service! This Valentine's Day trip was one of our best!

Room Tip: The king suites on the South side are wonderful, and some have a bit of a view of the lake!

Due to recent weather on East Coast my flight was cancelled so my stay on chicago has been extended 2 days. I switched from an expensive hotel to this one and like it much better! Great light coming in windows as well as good lighting. An AWESOME free breakfast included of Waffles, scrambled or hard boiled eggs, sausage, oatmeal, cereal, fresh whole fruit as well as fresh cut fruit, yogurt, breads, bagels and English muffins, juices and coffees. And free wi fi in the room, not just in the lobby. Also just at edge of mag mile. I can see courtyard Marriott just .1 mile from my window, but save your money and stay here!!!

Our package (with parking) was the best price in area. Very nice room & comfy king bed. Was given check-out flexibility around husband's discharge from hospital. Stayed 3 nights. Front desk was welcoming and very helpful. Many restaurants -- at every price level -- in immediate area, which is just east of Michigan Avenue. Will definitely return.
