Summer Isn't Over Yet!
Once we roll into August, we starting acting like summer is over. Here is how we see it at Fairmont Chicago, and we have put a lot of thought into it: there are 102 days from the Friday of Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day. So, as of the first of August, there is still 1/3 of the season to be enjoyed! Let’s get snappy, there is still so much to do and see.
Art Institute of Chicago’s Manet and Modern Beauty
The Art Institute of Chicago’s special exhibition, Manet and Modern Beauty, is the perfect way to spend a rainy day or a way too sunny afternoon. With this in mind, the Fairmont has created one package with three ways to enjoy the museum:
- The Artist includes a Signature Guestroom and two VIP access tickets to the Art Institute including the Manet and Modern Beauty exhibit.
- The Master includes a Fairmont Gold Suite and a 90 minute private tour of the Art Institute’s permanent collection.
- The Icon includes a Grand Suite and a private after-hours tour of the Manet and Modern Beauty exhibit.
This summer, don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime exhibit through September 8.

Picnic in the Park
If you think picnicking is one of those things that sounds fun, but in reality is more trouble that it is worth, we are ready to prove you wrong. An age old tradition that never gets old, picnicking for a concert or a movie is a Chicago rite of passage. Just steps outside our front door are Grant Park & Millennium Park chocked-full of amazing concerts and festivals as well as some of our favorite movies.
Turn that evening out into an overnight getaway with our Park Package. Our Park Package includes overnight accommodations in a luxurious Fairmont Guestroom and a Deluxe Picnic including cheese, charcuterie, CT Chicken Salad, a divine dessert and choice of wine, beer or soft drink. Need a Blanket, we have those too.
Air & Water Show
Don’t think just because you have seen it once, you don’t have to go back again. The Air & Water Show just keeps getting better. The largest free air show in the country this year includes the Blue Angels, the Royal Airforce Red Sparrows and even Team Oracle. So head to the beach and enjoy a tradition of old that is new again.
Two is better than one. Catch every moment of both Saturday and Sunday with our Weekend Escape package: Stay two nights and get the third night free.
So much more...
