The Fairmont Hotel occupies one of the most prestigious addresses in Chicago—along the Magnificent Mile. This luxury hotel is located in a reclaimed skyscraper, one that is an iconic element of the Chicago skyline. A recent $60 million transformation made this hotel more than just art-deco style. It's also one the most comfortable and welcoming places to spend some time in the heart of the city.
The list of attractions within in a short walk is quite amazing, including Millennium Park and some of the world's best shopping. After a day exploring Navy Pier, conducting business or whatever else keeps you busy, you'll want to retreat to your stylishly appointed room to relax and gear up for another day in the Windy City. The hotel staff knows the city well, and they're eager to make suggestions about where to go next—and they can even help set up the transportation to get there, whether you're traveling by limo, the EL train, or taxi.
Rooms at the Fairmont Chicago
With nearly 700 guestrooms and suites, the Fairmont Hotel is large enough to have space available, but it's not so big that you'll get lost.

Once they check into their rooms, they'll find a number amenities, including 42-inch flat-screen TVs, individual climate control and MP3 player docking stations. Internet access is available for a small monthly fee. The guestrooms and suites are decorated in crisp lines and earth tones, and the windows overlook the amazing skyline loved by architecture enthusiasts everywhere. Artist Warwick Orme created the lovely floral paintings that adorn the walls. The rooms also feature spacious bathrooms, with marble accents.

In addition to the 24-hour room service, the Fairmont Chicago has one of the best restaurants on Columbus Street. The eatery is watched over by an expert chef who crafts menus of American dishes with Asian influences. East intersects with west, as the restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The hotel's sushi bar opens at lunch and also specializes in cocktails besides the gourmet bites. The Fairmont Hotel also has a wine bar that opens every morning for quick breakfasts. Every afternoon, the luxury hotel and its wine bar transforms into a chic wine bar where drinks, chocolate, and cheese are plentiful.
