Clean Hotel with good staff and well updated rooms. Rooms were small but that is standard for the Loop. Rate was expensive for the location and room size. Breakfast typical American cereals, waffle, biscuts and gravy No Yogurt, very few fruits, they need to take a lesson form Europe since they have a lot of European staying there. PLEASE NOTE... More

Great Location, Great Service, Friendly and Helpful Staff, Breakfast Choice was very good and surprising. Parking rates reasonable for a large city, if you've never experienced it just prepare yourself for it.

The location was ideal for my recent business trip. It was close to nearby train stations and walking distance to the office I was visiting. We arrived late and were treated by friendly front desk staff, but found all area restaurants were closed and we ended up taking a cab to Greek Town for dinner. Not what we had hoped!... More

The hotel was clean, reasonably priced, had a good location, and included breakfast. We did not use the pool or other amenities but if they were as well kept as the room I am sure they would be satisfactory. La Quinta is a good choice for Chicago tourists.

The location and the hotel itself was great! Loved the room- it was spacious, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was awesome- lots of variety (although it would be so much nicer if real dishes, cups and silverware were used--and much better for the environment!) My main issue with the hotel was the front desk staff who I found to be... More

Very pleased with the hospitality in this hotel. They workers greeted as you came in and out. The breakfast was amazing so if traveling with kids plenty of options and great service. It is also in a great location if you are going for travel.

I cannot get over how nice this hotel is! Large clean rooms and bathrooms. Keurigs in the rooms. Friendly Staff. I would stay here again! Location is fantastic in Chicago. Just blocks from Millennium Park, CTA and Union Station. You won't be sorry if you stay here.

This hotel is close to downtown attractions. The room was spacious with plenty of room to work if you needed to. The decor was very modern, comfy bed, overall a very comfortable, well-located room with a great breakfast.

We stayed over a long weekend with our toddler. The location was within a block of the transit trains, seven blocks from bus lines. We were able to get tickets to shedd aquarium at the front desk, which was a big time saver. Free breakfast was basic but well stocked. Service was very friendly.

When I walked into room loved the way it looked, beautiful, the smell, like 10 musty men, it was horrible. I choose the hotel. Because of the hot tub. The first night there the hot tub did not work and the pool was very cloudy. I let the manager Mr.Pratt know this and he basicly called me a lier and... More
