I spent several nights at SLH. When I arrived I was informed that the only available room (although my order was made several months in advance) was the one reserved for the disabled. The woman in the reception joked "well, then you won't fall and die, you never know when you will need this" (referring to the handles in the... More

We appreciate your taking the time to review our property. Unfortunately, we do no pre-block rooms, so those guests arriving later in the evening get what inventory we have remaining. I apologize for the inconvenience our housekeeping staff and location caused you. Guest feedback is a way we gauge our performance and I would like to thank you for your... More

You get what you pay for. This hotel is on the outskirts of the Chicago loop, but just far enough away that you can't walk to downtown. Bad: I was very disappointed in the cleaning. I found a gum wrapper and a half eaten cracker under the desk in the room when walking in for the first time. I watched... More

Hotel was clean and offered free parking. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was fine. Nothing special but way nicer than the $125 price tag on a Saturday. Stayed at multiple "nicer" hotels based on ratings in Chicago and for the price and location this was one of the best. You can walk anywhere the neighborhood is... More

Hotel is nice, clean and well maintained. Ladies at the front desk were not friendly, and also didn't let us eat our take out at the lobby, even though there's a dining table there... As i was checking out i needed to open a can and the only woman staffing the lounge /restaurant was deliberately unhelpful. On the other hand,... More

Thank you for taking the time to offer feedback regarding your experience with us. I apologize that you found our front desk staff unfriendly. Our property does not allow eating in the lobby.

Stayed here for 3 days with friends to see Lady Gaga in concert. Very nice lobby! Staff was very polite and helpful! Free fast internet access too! Our room was very spacious and clean. No complaints! The second night we were there we had gotten back kind of late and there was no parking in the main lot due to... More

Why spend $300 per night when you can save a ton of money, get a huge room with a relaxing soaking batch, refrigerator, separate sitting area, free wi-fi, etc. Nice staff, good restaurant, live jazz music on Thursdays, etc.

Was here for 3 nights during IRCE in McCormick Place in early June. I believe I got the last room available for 3 nights on Hotwire so I did NOT get the best room... BUT it was $150 cheaper than the Hyatt and the other convention recommended hotels... AND it is only a 7 minute walk to the west building... More

Considering the cabbie did a double take when we told him where we were staying we were curious about what we were getring ourself into. The lobby was fun, Yolanda checked us in and was very pleasant. The rooms didn't mirror the lobby, but they were clean and that's what really matters. There is a bar/restaurant attached.

I booked this hotel through Hotline, so got a good deal. Hotel rooms in downtown Chicago are quite expensive, and in addition almost all of them make a significant ($20-$30 per nite) charge for parking. The South Loop Hotel provided free secured parking facilities, so that was a bonus. The hotel itself is an older property, but our room was... More

We were going to a game at U. S. Cellular Field in South Chicago. The South Loop Hotel was the closest to the field (about a mile away, we walked it). The price was fairly expensive for a very average hotel. One lobby elevator which was extremely slow. An expensive breakfast. Nothing bad but nothing memorable. Although the location was... More

Thank you for providing feedback about your experience with us. Our rates, as with most hotels in Chicago, are at their highest in the summer and at high occupancy. I assure you our rates are competitively priced. We actually had CDQ (Corner Deluxe Queen) rooms that offer views of downtown! Perhaps you can return and try one! More
