Good location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 2, 2008

Our stay was fine. We got the reservation through a third party [lastminutetickets.com] for a good price. Through lastminutetickets.com, we requested non-smoking but they only had smoking rooms when we got there [430pm], but I think the lastminutetickets.com hadn't forwarded that part of our request, so I don't blame the hotel. And, we figured that was par for the course for getting a very good rate.

Despite being a smoking room, whatever smoke odors were there disappeared after 5 minutes with the A/C on. The hotel staff offered to move us in a non-smoking room the next morning, but we decided to stay put because it was a large quiet room.

The hotel staff was helpful and courteous.
Cleanliness was not outstanding but acceptable.
Hotel has free wireless internet.
In-room safe was large enough to fig our old 13" [33cm] wide x 12" [31cm] deep x 2" [5cm] high laptop with room to spare
We did not use the pool or restaurant, so no reviews on those

Unique Quality: Great location across the street from Grant Park
[Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium, Field Museum, Soldier Field, etc]

At 11th/Columbus, just a block to the east, there are fast buses that go south to the Museum of Science and Industry]. Also, many buses go north and south on Michigan Ave.

Directions: Convenient if you take Orange line from Midway Airport.
Hotel is on South Michigan Ave at South 11th, two 2 blocks from the Roosevelt L station [Orange, Green and Red Lines; 24 hour Jewel Osco supermarket across the street].

This was the first hotel we stayed in on day 1/2 of our route 66 Road trip.It is a budget chain hotel ,the room was of a good size with reasonable facilities.The hotel car park was closed when we visited but as that was some time ago I guess that is open again.This meant that we had to park the car some distance away which wasn't too convenient.I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a budget room ,and it is close enough to everything.It also has a pool but being outdoors is has seasonal opening times.

Unique Quality: You gets what you pay for

Directions: Michegan Avenue near Est/West Roosevelt crossroads

Here's a summary of choices available to you!

by written on August 25, 2002

It has been many years since I stayed overnight in a Chicago hotel, so I have looked around and found a 'reliable' set of recommendations (I hope):
If you want a LUXURY hotel: try (in no particular order) the Peninsula, the Drake, the Four Seasons, or the Park Hyatt.

If you are looking for a ROMANTIC hotel: try (again, no particular order) the Drake, the Hotel Allegro, the Hotel Monaco, the Hotel Burnham, or the Willows Hotel.

And, for those seeking a BARGAIN place to stay: look at (no order) Hostelling International (absolutely brand-new), the Days Inn (Lincoln Park North), the Holiday Inn and Suites (Downtown), the Chicago Travelodge (Downtown), or the Best Western (River North).

And let me know if you have suggestions to supplement or modify my list....
