Just wanted to let you know that the Fairmont was a wonderful selection for the Chicago Marathon. You really couldn’t have found a more convenient location!!! Thanks.

 I loved the race! It was warm and I watched my pace a bit but I thought it was really fun. The Fairmont was wonderful. It’s a great chain and we had a wonderful room overlooking the start and finish. It had both location and luxury going for it. I love your company and have enjoyed the 6 or 7 trips I’ve done with you. Thanks so much.

As usual you picked a great hotel and the best location for the race. I enjoyed my trip and the hotel was located right where I needed it for the start and finish. And there was a free bus to and from the expo that picked us up just a block away. The train info you sent was perfect and I took that from the airport. Your name was spread throughout and those going to Boston were told about how well you take care of us runners!!! Thanks for all you do. PS I'm not the only one bragging about you. On the airplane I overheard someone else mentioning your name and at the airport someone else brought up Fit4adventure so we all love you!!!

The hotel accommodations were great. I love the fact that it is walking distance from starting/ finishing line and walking distance from great food, shopping and sightseeing opportunities. Although I didn’t do great in the race time wise, my friends and I had an amazing time and are planning on being back next year! Many thanks!
