This hotel is close to BronzeTown, walking distance to McCormick Place (or a $7.00 cab ride, including tip),close to good restaurants and an easy walk to Chinatown. The staff are friendly and accommodating (We were especially appreciative of Kyle who answered all our questions and provided excellent directions and suggestions for eating out). It is not the Hyatt or Marriott,... More

The price I received on PriceLine was excellent. The room was extremely large....I could have had a high school dance between my bed and the computer/television area! The others that attended the show from my office stayed in hotels that were much higher and farther away. I was within walking distance, and took advantage of this a number of times.... More

This was a great hotel for location! It was close to Chinatown and only a short drive to Downtown. Very clean rooms, friendly staff and 24-hour access to a computer (which came in handy!). I would have liked a small refrigerator in the room (for my leftovers), but I was able to make due. Also, the soda vending machine gave... More

If you are looking for a good value on a hotel for your Chicago visit then the South Loop will certainly fit your budget. The price was right and it's hard to find a hotel in Chicago that has free parking. But it comes with a lot of other "negatives" that you should be aware of before booking. The hotel... More

First of all, let me mention that I travel often for business and this is the first time I've ever felt strongly enough about a hotel to actually take the time to review it. This place is not what they advertise it to be. They call themselves a "boutique hotel." It's not. The rooms and service are the equivalent of... More

I booked a trip with my 2 sisters for a week in Chicago. Having stayed at the South Loop Hotel for the Chicago Marathon I decided to stay again. The large rooms and with a good sized bath were part of the reason. This hotel offers free parking, and is close to city transportation. Very clean and quite with friendly... More
