My wife and I stayed at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Chicago Downtown/River North in mid-March 2014 for three nights. We were attending a convention at the nearby Hyatt Regency on Wacker Drive but the room rate at the Fairfield Inn was much better (even after a discount at the Hyatt for convention attendees) and we are both BIG fans of Marriott hotels. Great experience! It was good to see how Marriott's Fairfield Inn hotel brand was interpreted in an urban setting like downtown Chicago. Excellent decor, both in the rather smallish lobby area and in the ample size guest rooms. Huge breakfast area with large picture windows overlooking the local street scene. All our usual Marriott breakfast favorites were available and, of course, breakfast was free (as always at Fairfield Inns). The hotel is located just a short Red Line train ride away, north of the downtown loop, if that's what you're interested in seeing and doing. And it’s only a very short walk east towards the lake to the Magnificent Mile, which means art galleries, shopping, eating, theatre, etc. Great location! We reserved our rooms using a Marriott senior discount (62 yrs. +) and the room rate was only $135 per night for 2 double beds. You can also get lodging for $151 per night (king bed) with a AAA card. Either way, you can save quite a bit off the standard rate of $159 per night which really isn't bad either, when you consider you're staying in downtown Chicago in a pretty darned good hotel!
