“very comfortable”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We were quite comfortable during our 3-night stay. The room was very quiet in spite of being near the ice machine and the stairwell. Front desk service was helpful and polite. Our room was very clean. All in all, a good stay.

Green Features: I would have preferred to not use paper and plastic plates/utensils in the breakfast room. It seemed like an odd choice from a hotel that prides itself on it's "environmentally-friendly practices".

I stayed here for a conference at a nearby hotel. The Fairfield cost about 1/3 of the conference hotel and had free internet. The location near Michigan Avenue shopping and all the great restaurants can't be beat!

My room was simple but comfortable. I will return if I need to stay in Chicago again!

Great place to stay downtown. It is a block off Michigan Ave. and very convenient to everything downtown as well as the bus lines that can take you everywhere. Breakfast offerings are good and convenient to get get you going early. This is our first choice for staying downtown.

All you need in a hotel in a great, trendy neighborhood. Convenient to all. Clean, comfortable rooms and helpful, courteous staff. Rooms were ample size and had all the amenities. We were not bothered at all by noise as some others complained about. We will return next time we visit Chicago. The free breakfast is a bonus!

Good location just off michigan avenue and half way along The Mile. Good strong wifi and a pretty good breakfast offered complimentary in a spacious area.

Seems to offer competitive rates given wifi & breakfast included.

Was slightly surprised the rooms felt quite dated especially in terms of the fixtures - for example very old fashioned air con control panel and system, and shower controls...and just a general 'feeling' of age.

Very surprised that the rooms do not have safes - surely a basic requirement in any hotel in a major city centre. Instead they are offered at reception which is hardly convenient for storing your laptop or excess cash. The lack of any fridge in the rooms is also a minor inconvenience.

Had a tiny issue with the complimentary toiletries offered in little plastic tubs which were difficult to squeeze and couldn't see how much was left.

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.
