        • Group of friends
          9.6

          The staff was so friendly!!

          Wish it had more amenities, like a pool or a gym that you didn't have to pay to use.

        • Single
          9.6

          The location was great and also very near to the lake, puts you right in walking distance to the heart of it all. Great hotel and the restaurant Aria served some fantastic sushi!

          My only complaint is that I was there for a business/leisure trip and was a bit put off for having to pay for internet on a daily basis. I believe that in this day and age when paying $190 per night(not including taxes), internet should be free of charge. So I opted not to use the internet during my stay since my phone has capabilities. It would have been nice though to use my laptop. Would most likely not return for that reason.....but beautiful hotel nonetheless.

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          Location of conference. Consierge was fanstastic. Also enjoyed the vanity area in addition to the bathroom

          No coffee shop - would have like to just have gotten a cup of coffee for the conference I was attending.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          I loved the size of the rooms and the proximity to the things I was in town to see.

          The service at the lobby wine bar/breakfast bar was subpar.

        • Family with children
          8.2

          It was quite comfortable. The air filtration system they use is wonderful.

          The front desk was not very professional nor very helpful when special assistance was needed.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          The staff was very friendly and hotel was very nice

        • Single
          6.2

          The room service was 'out of this world'. It was cold outside and what better way than to oder room service and to dine in-house. Great food and hospitality.

          The room furniture is 1980s decor (that's OK). It's a good hotel, but i'm sutre there are better in Chicago.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          The fancy coffe pot in the room. Just simply give me a Mr. Coffe machine that is a no brainer. We also stayed in the room when we had to switch the clocks back. No way, no how could we figure out how to move the time back one hour. Stupid things, but iratating.

        • Group of friends
          5.4

          Breakfast

          no flexibility, no helpful staff

        • Family with children
          9.2

          It was close to the Red/Orange Line, close to River Walk, and in a beautiful and central location. Courteous staff always!

          We did notice that the sheet/bedskirt under the mattress had some dirt. Unfortunately, we always check for bedbugs by the mattress. None were found, just dirt. We also had requested a non-smoking room when reserving our room, and we given a smoking room. Not too bad, though. Would welcome Fairmont being totally non -smoking.

        • Family with children
          6.2

          The location was good

          Having to pay for the use of the coffee maker and internet

        • Single
          8.8

          Very comfortable bed; very clean

          Our room had a view of a rooftop of another building. Room service was very expensive.

          9.2

          Excellent location while still very calm neigbourhood. Close to the park

          Hotel staff/management actively participated in the city marathon festivities. Private Bus was arranged to event registration location; staff all knowledgeable and positive towards marathon event; staff on sidelines of race morning of race day.

        • Couple
          9.6

          I like the hotel's proximity to the Loop, Navy Pier and the Magnificent Mile. Moreover, there was a bevy of excitiement downtown.
