      Historical Traveler Reviews Fairfield Inn & Suites Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile

      Surprisingly elegant and convenient!

      from

      This hotel may not be a Four Seasons or a Westin, but it a definite good find for the budget traveler. This hotel is just two blocks off of the Mag Mile, and is central to many other locations. The rooms are simple yet stylish, and immaculately clean. The service staff at the front desk was composed of some of the nicest employees of any hotel I have ever offered. Any request we may have simply mentioned they looked into without hesitation. The valets were also extraordinarily nice. Again, while certainly this is not the luxury hotel you may be looking for, there are no negatives in this hotel and would be a great choice for any sort of traveler.

      What a find!

      from

      We spent a weekend here in mid October and loved it. The facilities were very clean and the rooms quiet. And what a fabulous location! We'd definitely stay here again. The staff was exceptionally helpful! We highly recomend this hotel.

      Pleasantly surprised

      from

      I recently spent the weekend at the Fairfield Inn and Suites and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. I have stayed at several places in the downtown area and a relative made reservations for me here to attend an event in the area. THe staff was exceptionally friendly and accomodating. THe rooms were very adequate. It was very quiet. THe location to Michigan avenue shopping was great. THe continental breakfast was very nice also with a nice variety and staff to replace items that were going fast. I would definetly book here again.

      Not a bad Place

      from

      Decent but nothing special. The rooms were adequate and the bathrooms were clean. It's not the best price in town, but it beats some of the more expensive places.

      Good for Budget Conscious-

      from

      I chose to stay at the Fairfield for a few nts. because I had a free night voucher and $ per nt was reasonable. It was within walking distance to sites and they had a free continental breakfast every morning. The room was very clean but VERY SMALL. (Don't know if all the rooms are this size-we had the queen) Checkin and checkout was a breeze and staff we associated with were friendly. We had a hard time finding it (it's not one of the larger hotels) and with the one way streets kept missing it. If traveling on a budget, it's probally a good choice. I knew it wouldn't be a spectacular hotel from the research I did. Don't let the free continental breakfast be your deciding factor it's just a little bonus. (cereal, toast, doughnuts) There was even a line one day.

      I wanted to be close to or on the Mag. Mile so location was good but I realized it seemed like most hotels are near everything. We walked EVERYWHERE.

      Oh, at night I did hear sirens (it's near the hospital) and could even hear people sometimes outside the front but it wasn't a big problem for me.

      Other than that, Chicago was a great, clean city I look forward to visiting again.

      Great stay

      from

      Had a great stay here on July 1-4. Great location for the Magnificent Mile, and easy walk to the lake. Would stay here again.

      Spotless retreat

      from

      The staff was friendly and responsive. The room, though small, was spotless during our stay. Off site parking available. Good continental breakfast. All at a reasonable price for a downtown location.

      Fantastic service!

      from

      My granddaughter and I just returned from a 4-day trip to Chicago and we stayed at the Fairfield Inn and Suites on Ontario and I only have good things to say about this hotel. The staff especially was very friendly and helpful and really made us feel welcome. The only thing I would suggest (if you don't already do this) is when you're in your room always make sure the night security lock is locked. A maintenance man knocked on our door one afternoon and without waiting to see if anyone answered he proceeded to try to enter the room using his master key. Housekeeping also did this once. I always use the night lock when in a room but it could've been an embarassing situation. They are located 2 blocks off Michigan Ave. and there are lots of restaurants and bars within walking distance and if you need a cab a doorman is always on duty to help you. I would highly recommend this facility!

      Great deal

      from

      I agree with the other reviewer...for the money paid the downtown Fairfield was spotlessly clean, quiet, and the location is unbeatable, especially if you are a first-time visitor and want to experience the highlights of Chicago...eg Gold-coast shopping, Navy Pier, Wrigley Building. The breakfast buffet is copious and if you arrive 15 minutes before it is over there they are still restocking it, unlike most other hotels' continental breakfasts. Only negative is the actual street it is on.. a bit dark and dingy at night, but once you turn the corner onto Michigan Ave, plenty lighting and people.

      Most value for the Dollar-Downtown Chicago

      from

      For the price paid this is one of the best values in Downtown Chicago.

      If you don't need in house Restaurant or bar this a great palce to stay. Newly redone, one of the nicest continental breakfasts around (even has waffle maker), small work out area and rooms but by far the nicest in the low end Marriott properties (nicest Fairfiled I have stayed in). Price and location (right off N. Michigan Ave) can not be beat.

      ... there you can walk everywhere to visit the best attractions. The architecture is excellent and you may even see a rising bridge (the type they jump over in the movies). After you have gorged on the many excellent restaurants ask a local for the password to a "speakeasy". There is only one original speakeasy left but most of them are good fun. Find the establishment, knock on the door (usually down a dimly lit laneway) ...

As we drove into Chicago everyone was all geared up and on their way to the football (Chicago Bears vs Miami Dolphins). We drove past the line up of people waiting to park and asked what are the chances of us 6 getting tickets and they all replied saying slim. ...

Amazon has been a great help to research products and also blogs like this that give ideas on what to pack... Day 1 of my travels was pretty much getting into Asia via Hong Kong. I worked in Hong Kong many times so this was a perfect stop over since I would catch up ...

We went to a restaurant called 'Wildfire' and, well, steak is officially ruined for us now: nothing will ever match the steak we experienced last night. It was the perfect way to say goodbye to Illinois. We're off again now: currently sat on a flight to San Francisco, California here we ...

      Good Day Everyone,

      I've been putting making a blog off for some time. Really only because I could not find the time or reasons to do it. Now I see that just having a travel for passion and sharing info is enough to create this blog.

      Since I was young, I have been travelling on family vacations, or recently with my wife. While most of ...
