2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

If you are going to jack your prices up to double what they normally are for an event weekend (shameless money grab), then you should at least put a little more effort into your rooms and services. I don't normally stay in this hotel because I prefer the Hampton Inn in the same location. However, due to Lollapalooza (or something), all rooms at the Hampton were booked and The Fairfield was all I could get. The beds were old and uncomfortable. The room was supposed to be non-smoking but it clearly had been a smoking room at some point. It smelled awful. Combined with all the moisture in the room (because of the AC? Windows always had condensation on them), the stale smoke smell was intolerable. The carpets need shampooing. My white socks have never been so dirty after walking on the floors. I was deeply unsatisfied with my stay here and will never do so again. We paid double what we should have for a two night stay in a dirty, smelly, dank room because The Fairfield capitalized on the limited hotel space for an even that was an hour outside of the city. I will never stay here again even if it is my only option. The Fairfield needs to pick up it's game because there are ALWAYS other options. Go to the Hampton Inn. Clean rooms, excellent service, comfortable stay. The exact opposite of everything here

Friendly staff, nice access to interstate, and McDonalds next door for my morning coffee!

Room was very clean and comfortable. Plenty of space. Location was great with easy access to the expressways. Very nice continental breakfast and staff was extremely friendly. Would highly recommend.

this was a very nice hotel, room was very clean and smelled nice. the staff was friendly and very helpful. location was great not far from downtown and the EMPRESS casino. down side of my visit maid walked in at 11:15 check out time is 12:00 pm :( but overall i enjoyed my stay and would stay there again :)

Only a five mile drive on the expressway to the Chicagoland Speedway exit. It is also close to the Hollywood Casino (a couple miles down the road) and a Cracker Barrel is right next door. The staff was extremely friendly and the rooms were comfortable and clean. We definitely plan on staying here again for next year's race.

Excellent staff, very polite and helpful! Two places to eat within walking distance or room service. Casinos are less then 10 minutes away and the mall is less then 15 minutes away. Rooms were very clean and pool/hot tub was clean and relaxing. We are already planning our next getaway!

Very nice, would stay again. Very impressed that we were called, about 20 minutes after we got to the room to make sure everything was ok.

Nice room and nice price.

Nice Hotel and well maintained for the Money

Visited family; location was convenient to everything we visited in Joliet, including casinos.
