I needed a hotel in a hurry, and I found the Crown Plaza. The rooms are comfortable and clean, everything you need is in the bathroom, but why is the mini bar fridge on the floor just inside the door? Check in check out was very efficient and the staff was courteaous. My room was facing north, and there is... More

We stayed here in 2006 when the hotel was a Radisson. At that time the hotel was a little worse for wear and the rooms were a bit dirty. However, the location was great and so was the view. Most importantly, it was affordable. When my wife and I decided to make a trip back to Chicago in April of... More

I stayed here once on business for a few days. I found the hotel staff to be efficient and courteous. The food delivered to my room was ok but certain dishes were different from the European variety eg spaghetti carbonara but in a different country you expect this. The portions were great and the quality good so no complaints there.... More

The location is the best part about this hotel. It's just a couple of blocks away from Water Tower and many restaurants.

I stayed with a friend for 3 nights at the hotel in February 2014. As it was a vacation for us and we had been to Chicago before, the hotel's location was perfect to walk around the best places in the city. Located right off Mag Mile, the bean/millenium park is a 10 minute walk and the Sears/Willis tower a... More

I had a room with an amazing view on Lake Michigan. The only negatives were the noise of the ambulances, from the close-by hospital, and the small size of the room (but well, that's a big city). But the staff was great, the rooms very clean and the location amazing, at a walking distance from most of the Chicago shops... More

Had outpatient surgery at Northwestern, spent the night before. Arrived at 6pm, valet greeted us and got us out of the car quickly. Greatly appreciated since the area is very busy and construction was going on. Check-in was a breeze, elevators close by. Room was nice, good space. Bathroom needs minor updating, but still very nice. We had two issues,... More

The only two good things about this hotel are: 1) location and lobby staff 2) bed (comfortable and firm) Hence, giving it 2 stars....the rest is just old and bad - as soon as we entered the room the smell of the mold overwhelmed us (and this was during 17 F freezing temperature in CHicago) Even with air-conditioning , we...

Spent two nights while attending a dental convention with coworkers. They were very accomodating. Arrived at 11:00am from the airport and were able to get right in our rooms. Nice rooms and very clean. This hotel is right by Northwestern hospital. So if you are a light sleeper you will probably be awakened many times during the night by the... More
