The location is ideal. A quick walk to the Miracle Mile as well as public transportation. The room was spacious and the beds were comfortable. breakfast included a big variety of foods to choose from. The 2 employees, Fannie and Javier, working in the breakfast area were fabulous. They both kept the extremely busy area free of clutter as well...

My family spent four nights at Fairfield Inn & Suites Chicago last week. We had a fabulous stay. The location is within walking distance of many sights and attractions. Navy Pier is about a 20 minute walk. The Magnificent Mile,with many retail, upscale stores, is a short walk. The Redline Subway, which goes directly to Wrigley Field, is just around...

Stayed here overnight for a little getaway. The staff is very friendly. The hotel is very clean. They offer a great breakfast with your stay. And, it is only a block from Michigan Avenue shopping. The only negative I have to report is the room sizes. They are a little tight once you get your luggage in the room, especially...

This was by far one of the best hotels I've ever stayed. Our family of 5 arrived at 7 AM after our red-eye from Los Angeles, a one hour train ride, and a 20 minute wandering walk through a city we've never visited carrying a heavy suitcase whose wheels were broken by the airline. We were immediately greeted by the...

I have stayed in this hotel several times mainly due to service and location. The hotel staff who serve in the breakfast area are miles ahead of staff you can find in luxury hotels.
