It was my first business trip to Chicago, and staying in La Quinta (13 nights!) made it a very memorable one. It is at the heart of downtown and easy to get around depending on your preferred mode of transport (walking to our office was safe and easy, too). Getting quality sleep is a big deal for me and this... More

LaQuinta offers a clean, attractive room at an affordable rate; best value in town. The breakfast is awesome. It's a few blocks from major shopping or theaters. But it's worth the extra walk or taxi ride for the price you pay. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when I'm in Chicago. And there's a Starbucks across the street, 'nough said.

At least once a year we come in from the 'burbs for an overnight adventure of fun in the city, a show and dinner. This hotel was easy to access from the Kennedy, the staff were very nice and the rooms were clean and as expected. Could not have been easier to walk to State Street for window shopping, Daley...

I stayed here in July 2014 and have found the place suitable for a short stay. Rooms are clean but quite small. Breakfast spread was good.This hotel is in the midst of key places at downtown and provide good halt for tourists who wish to explore Chicago! Loop/Museum square/Millennium Park are near-by (20-30 mins walk). Staff is courteous and will... More

Easy access to our office nearby, great value, free wifi and great breakfast. A better experience that other nearby hotels that charge and arm and a leg for meals. I will be back for future business trips to Chicago.

I booked here because they offered smoking rooms. Even as a smoker, I have to tell you, this room reaked of smoke. I have smoked in my house 15 years and the smell isn't this overpowering. I wonder if they did more than make the bed when they cleaned it. If they'd fix that problem, it would probably be a... More
