Congress Plaza-strike finally over

by written on June 16, 2004

5/30/13 update-The Chicago Tribune this morning reported that the strike, which started on June 3, 2003, is over. That's a 10 year strike!!!!

This isn't a statement for or against unions, the workers at the Congress Hotel or the hotel management since I'm not all that familiar with the issues, just a warning to anyone considering staying there.

Workers at the Congress Plaza Hotel have been striking since June 2003 and from what I understand the protesters are out there every day although not in great numbers and low on enthusiasm now that the strike is nearing it's 4th anniversary. Just my opinion, a hotel with striking employees would not be my first choice for accomodations.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 25, 2002

We, ten Ukrainian educators from Luhansk, stayed in this hotel three days and two nights.
It was striking to see the old hall, the grand piano - a museum piece - and lots of other well-known places that made that hotel famous.
I had a good room - I think the number was 1107 - with a view of Sear Tower.
I felt I traveled in time and I lived in the twenties of the last century...

Unique Quality: Gazebo Restaurant (American cuisine, relaxed atmosphere, big choice of dishes); Tavern Tap (cocktails, full menu & popcorn, electronic games, pool table & big screen television); Fitness Center located in the lower level.
