t be better

from bomborivera
Spent the weekend in Chicago with a couple of buddies and had the pleasure of staying at the Fairfied Inn. The staff was great and met every demand and answered every question we had. Room was very comfortable and large enough for the three of us. I would definitley stay here again.

Great location. Great customer service. Clean

My sisters treated me to this my first trip to Chicago for my 40th birthday. The hotel was perfect. I would definitely stay here, again.

We arrived in the morning, asked if a room was ready early, and they were able to get us in our room (around 10 a.m./check-in was 3 p.m.). It was a relief to be able to unload.

They were extremely friendly. We told them the purpose of our trip. They surprised us with a basket of fresh chocolate chip cookies and a birthday card. What a treat!

We always felt safe here. The location was just right. Just far enough off the madness of the Mile, but close enough to be there in a couple of short blocks. The Schezuwan (sp?) restaurant at the next corner has a wonderful Dim Sum. My sister had eaten at the Indian restaurant across the street on another trip and recommended it. Everything's nearby.

I understand the beds are being replaced, soon. I slept like a baby. Wonderful pillows. But, the bedding did seem pretty worn.

Water pressure could not have been better. Great shower.

Our view was not interesting. Perhaps we might have gotten a better view when more rooms were cleaned by 3:00 check in. It was worth it to be able to check in early and take the view of the room on another building.

Breakfast was just right. Stocked constantly. Basic stuff, but plenty of selection. Pretty location on the 2nd floor.

I loved this hotel and would seriously consider staying here, again, as long as the price was right.

Very Satisfied

My daughter and I stayed at the Fairfield Inn September 15, 2005. We arrived at 11:00 a.m. and they actually had a room ready for us! There is easy access to park your car when checking in, then a valet takes care of getting your car in a parking garage. The room and bathroom was clean and spacious. A continental style breakfast was included which was very satisfying. When checking out on the 16th, we had additional shopping we wanted to do but had shopping bags and our suitcases to deal with. They have arrangements to tag them and keep them in a locked room behind the front desk until you return. The hotel is nicely located close to Michigan Ave. Very accomodating.

security and guests first!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
An old friend and I went away for a girls weekend. We loved the Fairfield Inn. It was very comfortable and in a great location. We got back to the hotel and were sleeping.......at 5AM the phone started ringing. Thinking it was my wake up call, I answered the phone, said thanks for the wake up call and hung up. Someone was knocking at the door, yes at 5 AM. The phone rang again, this time my friend answered the phone. It was the front desk. Some guy walked past the front desk and said he was going to our room. We got to sleep early since I had to get up at 6AM to catch the early plane out. The girl at the front desk asked my friend if we were expecting a guest. Of course the answer was NO. She thanked us and told us security was on their way up to remove this "guest". Two seconds later we heard Security talking to this guy to remove him from the hotel. I can only guess he met some girl in the bar and she said she was staying in our room and he was going to pay her a visit. A little scary for us . Hats off to the Fairfield Inn in downtown Chicago. I will stay there again because of the top security again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great in every way!

from jamesjamesmom
I just came home from the Fairfield Inn and everyone there was awesome! I was there with my mom and sister; the Fairfield gave us a great rate because our mother is a senior citizen! They also include a continental breakfast - we were used to coffee and day-old danish = here they have juices, cereals, toast, hard-boiled eggs, bagels, fruit, the requisite danish, but also 2 make-your-own waffle waffle-maker with individual waffle mix right there for your convenience! Very tasty and easy; ready in 2minutes! I wanted to take one home with me! The front desk staff were always very courteous and knowledgeable, even when we arrived tired and cranky after our red-eye flight at 7am! The best part was that our room was ready so we were allowed to check-in at 7am and take a nap. The room was fine, and the Fairfield's location was really great - just 2blocks from Michigan Ave. and the free Trolley to Navy Pier. I would definately recommend the Fairfield!

Absolutely Amazing Find!!!!!

from é
Let me start by stating that I am typically the world's greatest deplorer of so-called cheap (budget) hotels. But having stayed at many chain and non-chain hotels across the globe, both on business and pleasure, this is definitively one of the best value for money hotels you will ever ever (ever!) find. That is a fact, not a mad Brit raving about a one off experience. Fantastic location, highly functional rooms, very helpful staff...it hits the spot every single time. I really don't need to write much more. Try it. You will be very pleasantly surprised!

Excellent - seemed like new Chicago hotel

from bowdenj
Stayed 04/25/05 - 04/26/05.

In Chicago taking photos for work and this hotel is very close to Michigan Avenue.

The hotel had a very new look to it and the staff were first rate.

Rooms had high speed internet and decent cable channel selection.

Breakfast buffet was very crowded - a group I think - so I headed to Cambridge House 1 block south of the hotel - my favorite place for breakfast in Chicago.

Valet parking was quick and they let me retrieve some items from the car after it had already been parked.

Highly recommended.

Great Location!

from Proximus
This hotel is amazing! The rates are extremely reasonable and the location can't be beat! It's only a block and a half from Michigan Avenue! This is the only place we stay when we're in Chicago. The rooms aren't fancy, but they're clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast is pretty decent, but the breakfast room is kind of small. I recommend bringing the food back to your room. I highly recommend staying here. It's great.

Good deal and great location

from tewks
The location of this hotel is definately great! Just off Michigan Avenue, near Navy Pier and only about 4 blocks from the large Convention-focused Sheraton, it is a great alternative place to stay for those on a budget. I was in Chicago for a convention at the Sheraton and could not justify the rates there; this was a short 4 block walk, and saved me lots of money! Add in the really better than average complimentary breakfast and you have a great deal. Be aware that the rooms can be quite small, but if you're not there to spend more than just sleeping time in the room, it should be no problem.

Great value and location

from SunnyTrvlLvr
Three of us stayed here in a studio "suite" for two nights in mid-March. Rooms were clean and comfortable, although the sleeper sofa mattress was thin. Bedroom does not have any doors closing it off from the rest of the "suite" so consider this if you are looking for any privacy. Included free continental+ breakfast. The location just of Michigan is great. There is a computer in the lobby that guests can use for free internet access/printing. We would stay here again at a similar rate (less than $130), but would probably book separate rooms rather than a studio suite.

Top Local Tips for Chicago

great italian ristorante bice, less than a block from the hotel, is a phenomenal italian restaurant...i highly recommend it!

cheesecake!! Book a tour at Eli's Cheescake Factory. The public tour is at one pm...cost's three bucks, and they give you a $2.75 piece of cheesecake after the tour. So I guess you really get the 25 cent tour :) The cafe there is very good, arrive early and eat lunch there. It's worth it, and has an awesome chicken salad sandwich. They have a good website with details. It's on the Montrose bus route. They also have cheesecake food items for sale, including a discount freezer with "seconds" (we brought home two) and lots of goodies to choose from. If you are a foodie, this is a good side trip.

do some net search before actual arrival Before the actual journey, do a little net search and select what attractions you must travel and then buy a go-chicago card. Different combinations are available and you can choose set accordingly. Travel by bus as it is easy.
