“Fairfield Midway”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

This hotel is true to the Fairfield concept and brand. Not exceptional, not disappointing.

The exercise room is almost a closet. There are three aerobic machines and enough room behind them to get from one to the next. There isn't room to do anything else, so I did a bodyweight workout on the grounds out front. My experience is that about 80 to 90 percent of the travelers who come to the workout room hop on an aerobic machine and that is all that they need, so this clearly works for the vast majority of travelers.

The room was neat, clean and in good shape. The breakfast was completely fine. I ate after a bus load of teen aged kids left and the staff had it cleaned up and re-stocked real quick after the mass departure.

The desk staff and managers are engaging and extremely friendly.

This is a bit different set up than I've encountered elsewhere. There are about 8 different hotels all in a "hotel park" about a mile south of Midway airport. Almost on a grid with each other. Marriott has a full Marriott, Residence, Courtyard and Fairfield. There is also a Hampton Inn, a Holiday Inn and a Sleep Inn sharing grounds. It could not be more convenient to MDW. There is no location advantage among the hotels in the park, so pick the brand that works for you.

Very friendly, helpful hotel staff. Had a few things needing fixing in the room and the maintenance man was very prompt each time. Front desk staff were very friendly. Room was very clean. Only complaint would be the breakfast buffet. They ran out of food and it was messy. Not well attended to.

We were at the hotel for four days, in town for a family reunion. The location is convenient to Midway Airport, and the 24-hour shuttle to the airport terminal runs every 20 minutes ... or upon request during the wee hours of the morning. Since the CTA Orange Line runs from the airport to the Loop, the shuttle is a wonderful way to get to the station at any time, and then to downtown Chicago. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff was warm and welcoming. I would advise an early breakfast as the (excellent) variety of choices sometimes dwindles as the morning progresses. I will stay again.

Our visit started off the best way possible with the friendliest of greetings by Paige at the front desk. She should teach classes to Marriott staff across the country - as I rarely find anyone as warm and friendly and welcoming as Paige. Our check-in was fast and easy, our room quite large, clean, comfortable and quiet. Our request for extra pillows was filled within 5 minutes. Breakfast was very good - the option of fresh scrambled eggs is refreshing compared to pre made breakfast sandwiches and hi-carb waffles. The proximity to Midway was our reason for staying, and usually airport hotels tend to disappoint, but this one is well run and made our stay very pleasant. Again - thank you Paige for bringing your best to your job - you never know the affect you will have on people just by smiling and being pleasant.

I stayed here for two nights (the evening we arrived and the night we flew out). We arrived pretty late at night and there was a shuttle just as we exited the terminal. We arrived at the hotel within a few minutes. There were not a lot of restaurants nearby so we ended up eating at TGI's across from the hotel parking lot. The room was spacious and clean. However, the sound-proofing was horrible. We could constantly hear people talking in adjacent rooms and planes flying nearby. The next morning we took the shuttle to the airport and took the CTA train into downtown Chicago. A couple days later, we had an early flight out so we checked in (after midnight), slept for a few hours, and took the shuttle to the airport. I was too tired to notice anything and slept very well. It was convenient to be near the airport so we did not have to worry about traffic that morning. The location is suitable for access to/from Midway airport. I would recommend this hotel only for quick layovers or for late arrival / early departure at Midway airport.

Stayed here for 4 nights on vacation with the family. It's 10 minutes from Midway and they have a free shuttle service. We were able to catch the L into the city from Midway which was terrific. We arrived on a Thursday night, after our plane out of Denver had been delayed almost 2 hours. My mom called the hotel and spoke to Page to let her know, and also to tell her that another member of our party who had taken a different flight would be arriving before us. Page said no problem, and that she would let the family member check in even though the res was not under her. When our family member arrived, she discovered that the room would not sleep the 4 of us, so Syndal(can't quite remember how to spell) was able to move us to a room that would work better. Our in room fridge did not work, but once we reported it, it was taken care of while we were out and about. I have always been a fan of Fairfield Inn and this one was no exception. The continental breakfast is always a highlight. We would definitely stay here again!

If downtown Chicago is too expensive for you, this is a very good alternative. Take the Orange Line from the Loop out to Midway airport. Call for the Fairfield shuttle to pick you up. Very congenial front desk. Quiet rooms. Free Wi-Fi. Delicious free breakfast. Take the shuttle back to the airport; take the Orange Line back downtown. Wonderful adventure. $3.00 per person each way on the Orange Line.
