nice location and good value.

I was charged twice for a one night stay

Staff extremely friendly. Great location very active area at night

Pretty convenient downtown location; close walking distance for shopping, parks, Navy Pier. The rooms were clean and comfortable; bathroom was a bit tight but not bed. Beds were very comfortable as well.

Just a little noisy because of being in front of the fire department.

The location fits our needs perfectly. It is close to all the attractions we want in downtown Chicago. The room was clean. The service was great. The staff in the breakfast room is probably the best I saw in any hotel - friendly, efficient in cleaning our table as well as keep the food coming. Kudo to them! While the room size is smaller than some but this is Chicago, real estate is expensive. The room is big enough for our use and very efficiently design. I particularly like the bathroom with shower stall instead of tub and the many hooks for towels and clothes at level fits for average people instead of basketball players. Definitely recommend the place.

Nice & friendly staff. Clean & comfy rooms with a great continental breakfast!

Helpful staff, super value for the money. Hotel close to variety of restaurants and is centrally located as well.

“Suite” is an exaggerated description (quite small for the required upgrade due to 3 kids). Our window faced a fire house - great for peace of mind, but terrible for siren noise.

Johnalyn at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. She gave us everything we needed maps and answer plenty of our questions she was professional and smiling and warm. Fanny and Xavier at breakfast where very professional and caring. They made us all feel like we were vacationing with a few old friends. That made the experience so much better. We look forward to coming back to Chicago and staying at the Fairfield Inn

Easy to get to and pretty quiet for being in downtown Chicago. Very nice, rooms clean and up to date. Just a note: you'll pay a lot to park overnight in the area.
