Fairmont needs a renovation

I have stayed at the Fairmont Millenium Park Chicago at least a dozen times. The room I received was in need of a renovation. Carpet was tattered as well as the bed frame. The mattress was lumpy. The room needed a fresh coat of paint. I never had an experience like this on my previous visits. Too many nice hotels in CHI - will not return.

Out of date but central to downtown

Beautiful lobby, and room bathrooms, but room was old. Furniture was chipped, leather headboard was severely scratched and cracked, cheap pillows, smelled musty (like it used to be a smoking room), and carpets need to be replaced. Def not the newest hotel on the block. But centrally located to the millennium park area. Oh, and room service came to make up the room at 8am on a Saturday morning...not the best wake up call.

Great Location and Value

We arrived well ahead of check-in time, but our room was ready, so we were able to walk around the city without having to carry our luggage - a great start to our visit. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. The hotel is in a great location, 2 blocks south of the river and a short walk north of Millenium Park. I'd definitely stay here again.

Great location

Pros: Location
Cons: Replace/recover some of the furniture; nicer sheets
Location: Miracle Mile just a few hundred yards walk away
Fairmont Millenium Park Hotel's service was good, especially the bellmen/car service. The furniture in my room was "tired". But the location was excellent. I could walk easily to Hyatt Regency where my conference was being held, leave and return to my room in five minutes, no longer bombarded by the hoards there.
