We are from a very small village in Michigan and don't travel often. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The breakfast was plentiful and very good. The pool is small, but our daughter loved it, and she and her dad spent quite a bit of time there. The view was wonderful. The room very clean...I am especially particular about... More

If I could give the hotel 3.5 stars I would. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable. Location was excellent, in the heart of the financial district. Train was nearby- walking distance. Breakfast was plentiful. I would stay at this hotel again and would recommend it. I did not have a car with me so... More

I stayed here for business and to be honest I did not know what to expect. The staff was very friendly upon arrival and check out. This is a great location. The hotel is mins away from Union Station if you arrive by train and on the same block opposite corner of the Microtek building where I had to go... More

We stayed at the downtown La Quinta only one night and on my La Quinta points. The front desk personnel were very friendly and helpful and I didn't feel slighted in the least even though I was using my LQ points instead of paying out of pocket for the room. The room was very spacious with a large elegant bathroom... More

I know its location is good; however, we can easily find three or four-star hotel deals for Chicago downtown location. For the same price, we should be able to find much better deals, for a real hotel. I made a mistake by thinking this one charge higher price , so it must be different from regular La Quinta. I was...

Located within easy walking distance of Chicago Union Station, this beautifully designed and maintained hotel is a flat-out amazing bargain, considering its exceptional quality, cleanliness, comfort, friendly and gracious staff, and cool urban ambience. The reasonable price of my room included a spacious, well-equipped conference room, which I won't use, but the bedroom and bath are equally spacious, engagingly decorated,... More

Came to Chicago for the weekend to unwind. Ended up having the air show for entertainment as well as some local friends. This LQ is pretty close to the mile. Even closer with a quick water taxi ride. I would stay at this property with no reservations on any trips back to the area.

We visited Chicago because our grandson was interning there for the summer and we chose LaQuinta downtown because it was in the Loop near his job. We were able to walk to almost any where we wanted to go. The hotel was clean, well decorated, staffed by friendly helpful people, and had an excellent breakfast - even on the weekends.... More

The staff are some of the friendliest people we've encountered and so helpful. Facility is clean, nicely decorated and very conveniently located to restaurants, shopping and metro. Breakfast is just ok; would be nice to have more gluten free items. Parking garage is just next door at a rate of $45/day; a bit pricey. We will return again!
