At $100 a night I had high expectations of this place but they were not fulfilled. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of linen (as I was the only person using the room) but the bathroom was not just in need of a revamp (the tap was loose, the towerrail fell off every time I picked up a towel!) but it is also far too small, especially as this room is to accommodate two adults!. it was practically impossible to close the door if using the toilet! The decor of the room could also do with a make-over. The black leather sofa, the centre piece of the room, is very old fashioned and has also seen better days. If this was replaced by a nice modern sofa bed and the kitchen cabinets were pained white, the room would look immediately look 10x better. Also for $100 a night I would have expected nicer crockery than Ikea basic white, a water cooker, and more than 1 handtowel. I have stayed at fairfield inn suites before (though not in chicago) and certainly would consider going there next time when I'm in Chicago (two blocks away) rather than using this place again. Also considering that it caters for longer stays, I was expecting a larger gym with more equipment. The positive thing about this place is the staff - very helpful and friendly - and its location (opposite a grocery store, near the main shopping malls) but it is a bit of a walk to the nearest tube station.
