Nice place to stay in the business district. So if u r there for that, great location. It's a moderate walk to Mich Ave or a short cab ride. Rooms r always nice and the staff is terrific. FREE continental breakfast + WAFFLES !!

Great location downtown not much of a view but within a block or two of Willis tower. Good continental breakfast friendly staff. Pet friendly is a huge plus. Only issues were no onsite parking and the ac didn't get quite as cold as one would expect and made it a little difficult to sleep.

We selected the hotel for its location. First time at La Quinta. 3 people shared a room with two double beds. The bed next to the wall was in the darker side of the room and had bed bugs. The bites was shown to the manager and the room was changed. The bites stopped. However, management claimed that an inspection... More

Very pleased with this inn right in the heart of Chicago. Excellent service, decor, nice breakfast. Key card even on elevator gave secure feeling. Less than $200/night. Comfortable bed. I was even able to get in early and got a 1pm checkout.

Chicago is an important city for our business. I visit the downtown area, on average, once a year. At the recommendation of a friend I booked my stay at the La Quinta on Franklin Street. On most business trips I use a car, but for Chicago downtown, absolutely no. I fly into O.hare and take the blue line downtown. This... More

We stay here whenever we go to Chicago. We always ride the train up and it is just 6 blocks away. Easy to walk to staff is nice, but the breakfast staff is excellent. They are always friendly and helpful and very pleasant. The hotel is clean. It is also convenient to CTA access.

We stayed at this property at the beginning and the end of our roundtrip travels on the Amtrak Empire Builder. This hotel was a bargain compared to others right downtown and I was a bit concerned about what to expect. But, I was pleasantly surprised! The staff is very friendly and accommodating, the check-in was easy and fast and the... More

We booked this room on a very busy Chicago weekend because the price was the best available rate we could find in this class of hotel, and the location was convenient. The service at the front desk was efficient and reasonably friendly, the room was clean and the bed quite comfortable. The main reason I'm giving this hotel five stars... More

The La Quinta rooms were very clean and well maintained. The location is right downtown and is an easy walk to many attractions. I had trouble finding cell phone service the verizon coverage was very limited while in the room. The beds and sheets were very comfortable. The free breakfast a good continental breakfast and was well stocked. I would... More

We were pleasantly surprised with out stay here! The decor was very modern and the room was large and clean. We stayed in a king size bed room and we had a ton of space. The small fridge and microwave were nice as well! The pool was very small - but for small children - it is perfect - they... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
