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.

This beautiful hotel is located on Columbus Street, one block from three parks, two blocks from Michigan Avenue, and within walking distance to the Field Museum, the Shedd Aquarium, the Adler Planetarium, the Art Institute, restaurants, and shopping. (No free WiFi, but I didn’t miss it.)

I am not one to post reviews. So for me to take the time to recognize someone, it must be worthy.

The lounge is quite nice and the staff are very professional and attentive. Sometimes these special floor lounges can have staff that are a bit self-important but not this one. Patricio in particular was professional, kind and most of all attentive. A wonderful stay

Attended banquet 9/15. Hosts spared no expense to create a party experience. Think you can expect exceptional cuisine; guess wrong. Now it is a challenge to feed 200+ plus. With reputation, skill and technology, it is expected to be done fabously. But not this venue. Great passed and buffet appetizers. However hot food was not. Unique salad… Read more
Attended banquet 9/15. Hosts spared no expense to create a party experience. Think you can expect exceptional cuisine; guess wrong. Now it is a challenge to feed 200+ plus. With reputation, skill and technology, it is expected to be done fabously. But not this venue. Great passed and buffet appetizers. However hot food was not. Unique salad with lettuces, pecans, fresh figs, fresh pear, and unremarkable diced sweet potato. What really dissapointed was main entre execution. Well done filet supported by passed its fresh date salmon. Beautiful presentation of orange, purple and white miniature root vegetables were barely cooked, tasteless, requiring a firm knife to cut before several tons of maceration effort to devour. Desserts provided by hand picked external contractor were excellent. Banquet care and execution require the craftmanship and skill of a dedicated kitchen crew. They were not present for this function. Read less

Stayed here two years ago. It’s improved. Clean. Friendly staff. Good location. Restaurant is so-so. Grab and go is just ok. But large rooms. But could never get cool at night. Very hot always. Even w windows open.
