We stayed at the Hampton Inn recently, as we had four teenage girls that were attending a concert at Soldier Field. We were happy with the Valet Parking, as we needed to drop-off and pick-up the girls, and it worked out well. Also, the hotel is located four blocks from the magnificent mile, so it is a quick walk to... More

Love the location of this hotel and staff are excellent. Check-in was quick and easy, room was ready for us at 1pm so went up straight to our room. They honoured our request for a high floor (11th and away from the firehall side). Good breakfast options - although was crazy busy on Saturday morning---thanks a lot One Direction. This... More

Stayed here for 5 nights and was very impressed. Location is great, 1 block from the subway and 20 min walk to Navy Pier. We paid a little extra to have a one bedroom suite and we were very pleased we did. Room was huge with lounge, kitchenette and two double bedded bedroom. Good, free wifi and lots of free... More

My friends and I arrived on Saturday for a one night stay for a concert in Tinley park. It was 3:00pm so I was prepared to store our bags and walk around and grab dinner until our room was ready but we were able to check in immediately. We had a 2 room suite with 2 double beds on 5th... More

Had a conference in the city and the host hotel was booked. Stayed at this HGI because of location, brand, and rewards program. Very nice, spacious suite but it was right next to the elevators, even though my rewards program comments ask that my room be away from the elevators. I had trouble sleeping with the whir of the elevators... More

The price of "top" hotels in Chicago led us to stay with Hampton, a brand we frequent from time to time. In general we were pleased with this place, though there were some issues with the car/valet services but actually the fault lay with the hotel staff and not the outsourced service. Apart from this most aspects were good from... More

I had 2 rooms for a long weekend at this hotel, one was the king 1-bedroom corner suite and one was a standard 2-bed room. They were virtually the same price (I paid $25 more all told for 3 nights for the suite). If I had only had the suite I would have given this hotel a 5 star, but... More

Very Nice Complimentary Breakfasts, including eggs, waffles, meats, oatmeal, yogurt, fruits, and pastries. Good coffees and available all day. Good location, close to mix of restaurants, shopping, and lakefront. Some nighttime noise from close by fire station, but comfortable rooms and very good service.

I moved away from Chicago 3 years ago; this time visited for business. Needed to go to the suburbs the next day, but wanted to stay in the City on a beautiful Chicago night. This is a perfect location. Walk to Michigan Avenue, great restaurants, pubs, rental cars. Friendly staff.
