Looking for a luxurious and exciting city getaway? Look no further than the Fairmont Millennium Park Luxury Hotel in downtown Chicago. A “Family Travel with Colleen Kelly” producer recently enjoyed a stay at this classic city hotel and found that guests are treated like royalty by the welcoming and attentive staff. She was amazed by all the wonderful accommodations. And with Millennium Park two blocks south and the Magnificent Mile just a few blocks north, the Fairmont is perfectly placed right in the heart of Chicago, making it the ideal stay for families or friends on vacation, or couples looking for a romantic weekend.
Fairmont Millennium Park is ideally located near many other popular attractions as well. Fairmont accommodates its guests with an on-site parking garage at a reasonable cost, so it’s easy to bring a car. But many of the attractions are just a short walk, bus, taxi or trolley away! From Navy Pier, the Art Institute and Field Museum, to countless shops, Water Tower Place and weekly free concerts and shows in Millennium Park, the possibilities are endless. Not to mention, you’ll be just a hop, skip and a jump away from Chicago’s lakefront, where you and your family can relax on the beach, or go for a refreshing swim in beautiful Lake Michigan.
For couples looking for a little escape, there’s plenty of romance to be had in this stunning hotel. Though the Fairmont doesn’t have a pool, it takes pride in its luxury spa accommodations at mySpa, the perfect spot to unwind and relax after a day of touring the city. Also be sure to take advantage of the high-rise suites, which offer a separate living and dining area, spacious bedroom, bathroom with an independent shower and tub, and spectacular views of the city. Did we mention the lavish terry cloth robes for you to wear while lounging around your room during your stay? The life of luxury at its finest!
For dinner, check out the Columbus Tap, the Fairmont’s own restaurant, famous for a wonderful variety of beers and cocktails, as well as delicious food. Don’t be fooled by the idea that “pub food” is just a plate of hot wings. From Columbus Tap’s incredibly popular soft pretzel appetizer, to the scrumptious chicken and biscuits, you’ll find something for everyone to enjoy at this gem.
Depending on when you stay, you can finish off your night out on the town by coming back to your suite, looking out your window and enjoying the spectacular view of fireworks over Chicago’s Navy Pier. This summer treat is just one of the many perks of staying at the Fairmont, and will make your visit to Chicago one you’ll never forget.
