This hotel had a perfect location - close to everything downtown and near public transportation - plus they offered king sized beds (which are sometimes hard to find for us very tall folks). Everything was clean, well maintained, with good wi-fi. All the staff were friendly and helpful but the highlight was one woman in the breakfast room. Besides having... More

Spent part of our Spring Break in the Windy City. La Quinta Inn &Suites in located in within walking distance of everything. Enjoyed the top floor's quietness even though lots of visitors clearing came for the St.Patrick's Day weekend. Beds were comfortable, pillows excellent, towels fluffy and soft, with a huge bathroom. The modern feel of the decor in the... More

This was our first stay at this hotel and I plan to stay here again. The location is convenient to many attractions. Every staff member that we came into contact with was friendly and very helpful from giving us directions, storing our luggage, getting us extra pillows, etc. they were there for anything we needed. There was also a great... More

Have stayed here twice now-if you thought La Quintas were so-so, this one is not. Great interior, friendly staff, clean rooms, secure. Parking is right next door(not included in price $46) I had had some issues with my La Quinta points which their corporate customer service did make right. Kuddos to them. Called the hotel mgr. direct and explained that... More

Nice, newer hotel. Close to major attractions. 3 Blocks to train. The suite seemed Huge compared to the room sizes I am used to in other major cities (maybe it was the tall ceilings). Staff were friendly and accommodating (bell man was kind enough to flag a cab for me in single digit temperatures). The included breakfast was above average.... More

We stayed here for my Birthday weekend in Chicago! Nice hotel for the money spent. Not as spectacular as other Chicago hotels I've stayed at but nice just the same. The staff was friendly and attentive. The room was bright and spacious. Breakfast was the typical complimentary fare, which was fine. Only downside was the room wasn't all that clean.... More

It's quiet! Fresh and clean. Great staff treated me with unexpected warmth with weather in the 'teens. Food delivery available from nearby restaurants and the attached Noodles off the lobby so you don't have to go out in bad weather to eat. Breakfast area all glass and open to the city view. Very nice. Very nice indeed. Only oddity was... More

Busy, basic business traveler hotel, but it's obvious everyone works hard to keep things clean and organized. Needed room key card to access elevator to our floor, so that's a security plus. It's a super-busy area to drive on a weekday and we were unfamiliar with the one way streets, so we benefited by calling front desk night before for... More
