    4.5-star Hotel Class
    The Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park can be found inside the Loop – close to both Millennium Park (of course) and the Magnificent Mile – in a place that makes it a convenient jumping-off point for sightseeing. A relatively recent revamp brought this AccorHotels property to the forefront of style, with the lobby and guest rooms now boasting contemporary furnishings and decor, like flat-screen HDTVs and marble bathrooms with separate tubs and showers. Although they're fond of this hotel's location and appearance, some guests said the rooms were on the small side and numerous visitors noted inconsistent customer service. Still, a stay here will grant you access to an 11,000-square-foot spa and a small fitness center, though spa treatments can be pricey. And when it comes to dining, the gastropub cuisine served at the in-house restaurant, Columbus Tap, a favorite among guests and locals alike. Members of the Le Club AccorHotels program can enjoy special perks (like free access to the gym) by choosing to stay here.

    Even though this Le Méridien property sits around 18 miles west of downtown Chicago, recent travelers said the hotel's location is ideal for a staycation or a weekend shopping getaway. (Oakbrook Center is one of the largest malls in the nation, with more than 160 specialty stores, 20 restaurants and grab-and-go eateries and an AMC movie theater.) But if your perfect vacation doesn't involve spending a ton of cash, don't fret. An on-site fitness center is available free of charge, and the property's two restaurants – Longitude 87 and El Tapeo – offer tasty meals and drinks at reasonable prices, according to past guests. When you're ready to catch some zzz's, unwind in your comfortable digs. All guest rooms feature crisp white linens and wooden furniture, and include amenities like 48-inch flat-screen televisions and Illy espresso machine. However, be prepared to pay for in-room Wi-Fi. And because of this property's connection to the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.
