Let me start off by saying that we had a wonderful time on our first visit to Chicago. There were mixed reviews, however, regarding this hotel. The hotel is in a perfect location. It is a block from Michigan Ave. and walking distance to almost everything-Navy Pier, bars and restaurants. I read the trip advisor reports prior to our arrival... More

They are under construction but seem to be doing well through it. No king rooms upon checking in so we got an upgraded suite. Very helpful with area. Parking is $60 a night though. That's tough. All in all, pleasant stay.

...you will feel right at home! We visited Chicago for a week-long summer vacation and stayed at the Crowne Plaza, which was under construction. This was not mentioned when we made our reservation. We asked for a room with a view and we were put on the 38th floor - right next to the elevator shaft. We requested a new... More

Went there for a fun weekend to visit family and the hotel was under construction. The lobby was small, congested with fair-poor service. No help with luggage out of car. Had to retrieve our stored luggage ourselves from an unlocked closet as no one was around to help. There were two elevators for 38 floors. They were moving furniture via... More

We stayed here last summer because we wanted a hotel with a pool. We thought this was fun because it was outside. Great views from the pool. Very nice room. We plan on staying here again this summer. Great neighborhood and M Burger is right across the street.

First off, the hotel honors Platinum Elite members with upgrades when available. In our case, we were upgraded to a corner suite, which was wonderful because we have two children that were able to sleep in a separate room from us. It had views of the lake and had lots of windows to look out of. The bed slept wonderfully.... More

We arrived to find the hotel under renovation - the lobby was set up oddly and crowded, but the staff was wonderful during check-in. We were upgraded to one of their "newly renovated" suites, which was very nice of the staff, but the room is VERY poorly designed. The bedroom was very big, but the TV was too small for... More

Just returned from a two night stay at the Crowne Plaza - Clearly the eye sore of Mich ave. rooms are refurbished but otherwise a dump. Elevators are horrible (slow), filthy inside. They need to close and reno the property. Terrible climate control.

We have 2 nights at this lovely hotel, our room has just been refurbished ready for the rebranding and it is very elegant is it's styling.

I'm a little biased because I think Chicago is pretty overrated. I guess if you like to shop there are a lot of stores all in one area, otherwise there are traffic jams, overpriced parking, tiny hotel rooms, and everything outside smells like poop. Yay. I stayed here for work and after being gouged for like $50 to park a... More
