Hotel was very nice but the walls are too thin. Could hear conversations in the next room. Alittle pricey, but there is a hot breakfast and in the evening cocktails and snacks. Only about a ten minute walk to Navy pier.

Can't go wrong with the included manager's reception each night and the cooked to order breakfast each morning. The rooms are spacious and the lobby area is beautiful. Lots of great restaurants in the area and a close walk to Navy Pier and Michigan Avenue. Not terribly close to the "L" but still walkable.

Location is great but several problems with the room. Refridge did not work, problem was it took 5 days and 4 face to face talks with front desk to get anyone to look at it. When they did they pointed out that the microwave was not safe to use. My 2 week stay amounted to trying for almost half of... More

This hotel has been updated and has a nice, modern feeling to it. The layout is typical Embassy Suites with the center courtyard and rooms around it. The rooms were nicely updated with the typical layout- separate bedroom, bath between the living and bedroom. Comfortable beds with decent pillows (not always the case with Hiltons!). We ordered a snack mid... More

The stuff was really polite, friendly and willing to help us in every way (they helped us print our... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying several nights at this hotel. The reason for my trip was to attend an annual industry Summit. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and complete professionals who went out of their way to be accommodating. The business room we used as well as the AV staff were top notch. The food served at breakfast,... More

The pros: 1. Comfortable suite style accommodation with a generously sized bathroom. 2. Relatively convenient location - brisk 10 minute walk to the Red line and 3 blocks from Michigan Avenue. 3. "Cook to order" omelet at complimentary breakfast. The cons: 1. Check-in time is 4pm, which we knew in advance. We arrived at 1:30pm and were told the "system... More

I stayed at the Embassy Suites for a week at the end of September. I was on my own so a central location and a quiet, comfortable room were the priorities. The hotel delivered on all of the above. This was not the most luxurious place I have ever stayed, however for value for money it was excellent. The suite... More
