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

This hotel was perfectly located for seeing the city with kids. Each morning the helpful desk staff would tell me which bus to take for our destination and point it out on the map they supplied. They were close to Giordano's Pizza and the Sky Deck as well as several local restaurants. The pool was a good temperature but a... More

I don't like being ignored for someone who was better dressed because they hadn't traveled several thousand miles on a train with no air conditioning. The girl at the desk just kept asking everyone else what they needed while we stood there with our suitcases. The rest of the staff went out of their way to make our stay pleasant.... More

This hotel is close to Union Station and Michigan Ave. Great place to stay, but not too many good places to eat nearby. Smoking rooms only have double beds. Everything was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Had to request a mini fridge.

We came into Chicago late via Amtrak and selected the LaQuinta due to its proximity to Union Station – less than $5 cab ride – and because I had points saved up from the loyalty program. When we arrived, they were out of non-smoking rooms in our class, but had already bumped us up to a Jr. Suite. The room... More
