Searched for a hotel close to Union Station; (arrived & departed Chicago by Amtrak). It's 5 or 6 blocks, not a bad walk unless the Windy City is stuck in the Polar Vortex! Did not find any other hotels much closer, and the value for price of the La Quinta made it the clear choice. There is an "L" station... More

Other than being right next door to the office, my favorite thing? The towels! Nice, fluffy towels, not thin or worn like many similar quality hotels. Breakfast is ok, but the eggs are those gritty, powdered ones; and you don't get to serve yourself, so you're likely to end up with too much. Beware.....they do have really tiny rooms, too.... More

This hotel is certainly not glamorous or anything fancy, but for the budget-conscious traveler interested in something that is a reasonable walk from most of Chicago's downtown destinations (Michigan Avenue shopping, Art Institute, Theatre District, etc.), this is a great option. The hotel is convenient to public transportation. Unfortunately, as it is in Chicago's financial district, the immediate area is... More

Overall great location in the heart of downtown. Good breakfast and great wifi. Pool and hot tub are nice as well. Good value considering what you would pay a few blocks away. Would stay there again on my next trip. Really enjoy Chicago, definitely one of the nicer cities to checkout in USA.

The entire staff was wonderful - from the doormen, to the front deak to the breakfast crew. Whenever I am in Chicago for business, I stayed at this hotel (approx. 2x a year); the location is so convenient. But the presentation of the rooms were not "inviting" and enjoy your stay more of a "ok, bare minimum amentities in the... More

Good, clean, and quiet place to stay. A short trip or 10 minute walk to all the great restaurants. Rooms are large and the beds are nice. The ladies that handle the weekday breakfasts are very friendly.

Great location. We stayed here for a concert at the United Center. Room was good with nice amenities. Spa holds two people, pool is not a lap pool. Breakfast was a good variety for my husband. I have to avoid gluten, so my choices were more limited. When we left, the doorman went to the middle of the street to... More

Booked here based on rating and proximity to the shuttle for the Blackhawk Games. The shuttle pickup was right across the street and post-game drop off was a block away. This was really convenient when considering it was hovering around zero degrees and windy the day we went. Room was clean and spacious. Staff were friendly. Other reviews mention the... More

Very user friendly and convenient. I have stayed here in the past and it is very consistent. Will return again in the future. The hotel has been available when I've needed to make a short-term reservation on last minute notice which has been helpful.
