Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park

Chicago, USA

The hotel

Rising gracefully above Grant and Millennium Parks, the Fairmont exudes first class elegance and the grand circular lobby sets the Fairmont's tone straight away: upscale and lavish. Located just off the lobby is The Bar, offering premium cocktails and wines and contemporary small plates. For in-house pampering, visit the tranquil and indulgent mySpa*, with private treatment rooms and baths. In addition to a wide variety of menu options, it also offers oxygen treatments, the latest in non-invasive skincare therapy. Designed to refresh and rehydrate, giving instant results and touchably soft skin. The hotel is within easy walking distance of Michigan Avenue, the Magnificent Mile and the theatre district and if you’re visiting in winter, The Fairmont is connected to the city's underground "pedway" system, where you can walk all the way to Macy's on State Street.

We walked for 10 hours one day and I slept for 11 hours! I didn't hear any noise and the room was quiet.I also stayed at a Marriott the weekend before in Toronto and the room in Chicago was twice the size which I was not expecting! The service was also excellent for checking in and out. They also made last minute reservations for us and recommend a great place to eat which we appreciated. I would certainly recommend this hotel!

From the moment we entered the hotel we were treated like priority guests. The door man and bell captain were quick and courteous and attended to our luggage quickly. The front desk was very polite and engaging while explaining the various services the hotel offered. We upgraded to Gold status. Check in was smooth and pleasant. Again, we were treated like priority guests. We visited the Gold Lounge several times during our stay and the concierge Mugi Mandana was absolutely fantastic. He gave us a quick tour of the lounge area, explained how it worked and what access we had and then proceeded to engage in very helpful conversation about getting around Chicago for the BTS concert the following day. My wife and I were treated like we mattered and with great courtesy and respect. The lounge was a wonderful place to relax, grab a coffee or drink, review emails and news. The upgrade to Gold is definitely worth it. The entire experience my wife and I had at the Fairmont cannot be overstated. It made for a wonderful long weekend in Chicago and we look very much forward to returning there and staying at the Fairmont again. Read less

Great location but the Hotel is tired, overpriced and in need of a renovation. This was my third time staying there and my last. Much better choices in Chicago. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

I have stayed there for a couple for days and had such a great experience in Chicago. The room I chose was almost too big enough for a person;however, people sometimes need such room for especially a long stay. I was quite often at their GOLD lounge on their 15th floor and people served me there were one of the nicest ones. You might want to try their Avocado toast too because it is just tasty. Had a great view both from my room and the lounge. Thank you to Tiphani, Mugi, Mandana, and Patricio for your great service and it was very joyful to talk to you all, especially it was my first time to visit Chicago. It turned to be one of the best memory of my trip. 部屋から見えるミレニアムパークの景色がとても綺麗で印象的でした。ホテルの場所が観光の中心から比較的近い位置にあるということもありこのホテルを選びました。レセプションやラウンジの方々の対応もとても良いので、機会があればゴールドラウンジを使ってみるのもよいと思います。 Read less

Staff were friendly and helpful. Magi went above and beyond to remember us, our food allergies and even sent us home with some of our favourite Fairmont tea. The rooms were clean, the breakfast (included in the room rate) was great, the complimentary bike rentals were nice, and the hotel location was very convenient. I would highly recommend this hotel!!
