The Fairmont Chicago makes the most of its Fairmont Hotels pedigree by offering an 11,000-square-foot spa, impressive suites, spacious boardrooms, and a reputation for throwing chandelier-lit events in the lofty Imperial Ballroom. One of Chicago's many high-rise hotels, the Fairmont greets you with individual style, from the striking wave wall-art behind reception to the hot-red glow of the Aria Bar. Feast on Asian-American fare with Midwestern flair at Aria Restaurant, or 'visit' Continental Europe with world-class wines, cheeses, and chocolates in the Eno Wine Room.

Neighborhood
Located on Columbus Drive in the heart of downtown Chicago, the Fairmont Chicago Hotel is just one block away from Millennium Park, home to the mirrored, bowed mercury of the Cloud Gate sculpture. It's also less than a mile from the chic Ralph Lauren and Hugh Boss stores of the Magnificent Mile, and Navy Pier's white-knuckle Ferris wheel. Visitors can live it up with easy access to the city's incredible Theater District, and enjoy edgy nightlife along Rush Street. Views across Lake Michigan are available from most rooms.
Hints and tips
Since you're in the neighborhood, look out for Millennium Park's line-up of year-round events, which run the gamut from outdoor music, opera, and traveling.

Broadway performances to the Great Lawn's schedule of open-air fitness workouts during the summer.

The location is very nice. The "bean" is just around the corner. Quite close to Navy Pier, in fact we walked back from the pier to the hotel.

4th of July weekend

The bathroom was really nice and the beds were comfy, but it was a little dirty. I found a piece of broken glass in the carpet along with a pin. There was also some stains on the wall. It's in a great location. Only a couple blocks from Michigan ave and the Wildberry. Had extremely nice staff who was quick to help or answer any questions. Parking is way over priced and they only offer valet there.

July 4th family getaway

Great location with a 2 and 5 year old cause it's a one block walk to Millennium Park and the double decker tour's main stop. We would stay here again because of the location and well kept hotel. Convenient cvs across the street. Just wish this hotel had a pool.

Great location, old hotel with updates

We stayed over the last weekend in June and found the overall experience to be very good. The hotel is nice and clean, the lobby is very pretty. The room was very clean and spacious for a city hotel and we were able to get a great view from the 35th floor. The bathrooms feel a little old (the toilets reminded us of a highschool) with an old tub in it as well. But there was a seperate shower which was nice and modern. The shampoo/conditioner/etc amenities smelled really nice. Our TV was a flat screen LG but the remote was finnicky and you could select a channel and had to flip up and down to get where you wanted. They have 24 hour room service which was a great, but when we tried to order late night deep dish pizza the room service attendant said it would take 1.5 hours and tried to talk us out of it. The ARIA restaurant was really nice and we had some good drinks there. The food looked good on the menu but we didnt eat because we had other reservations. All together, it was a nice stay and I would stay there again.

Family getaway with toddler

We chose this hotel purely on location. It's a short walk from my sister's apartment, which was most important for us. Location was not only ideal for this reason, but for a multitude of other reasons. Walking distance to Navy Pier, Shedd Aquarium, Michigan Avenue, Millennium Park, etc… Also across the street from a CVS and supermarket. What more could you ask for? Hotel was nice, seemed more for business travelers than pleasure but that didn't deter us from having a good stay. Not much offered for families with children but all we really needed was a nice size room that was clean and had decent amenities. This hotel fit that bill!

It could not have been better!

I was visiting family in the neighborhood. And what a neighborhood it is! Easy walk to Blue Line for ride to and from O'Hare. Easy access to Riverwalk. The accomodations are exquisite. I will be back!

Great Location, Helpful Staff

We arrived early, but they upgraded us to a nicer room that was ready for us. Unfortunately, the room next to ours contained a yappy little dog, but he was quiet at night. The front desk clerk was thoughtful enough to ask why we were there. When we said we were celebrating our anniversary, he offered to send up "something special" but, unfortunately, it never arrived. It's an excellent hotel, with the only real downside being a shower door that interferes with the bathroom door. Again, no big deal. We'd be happy to stay there again.

The price of the parking at the hotel is steep, but parking longer than 24 hours at the Millenium Park garage is even worse.

Great location for work and play

My eleven year old daughter recently returned from a four night stay at the Fairmont. I was attending meetings at the hotel and we stayed a couple of extra nights. I liked the central location.
