I don't see the value that they are charging for. It's a nice place but the prices are crazy high and the premium service is a rip off. The breakfast was the best feature, it was hot and fresh. $39 for overnight parking? I know it's downtown chicago, but please....

This was a combined family/business trip. Our room was very nice, lots of space, clean and great views of city and lake. We decided on this hotel because of the location (nearby) to attractions and buildings we wanted to visit. We weren't disappointed. The hotel staff were all over and above just nice...they went out of their way to make... More

We were so pleased with all aspects of our stay at this Embassy Suites. The staff were friendly and very helpful, the accommodations were very nice, the central location in the city was ideal, the rate was great, and the breakfast was outstanding. The king suite was a great fit for our family of 4. We will definitely come back... More

The hotel was slammed for that full weekend of summer but overall the staff and the hotel handled it well. The breakfast buffet eggs were too watery but otherwise everything was fine with the free breakfast. Good location and clean hotel.

Very nice location - not far from downtown or from lakefront or from river north/magnificent mile area. Pros: Clean, decent rooms. Very nice breakfast. Very nice happy hour with several liquor choices. Friendly staff. Especially thought the cocktail hour bartenders and bussers were super friendly and gracious and helpful (suggesting places to eat, etc.). Nice pool - not huge, but... More

The suite was a sweet size and was perfect for my stay. The complimentary water, breakfast, and happy hour really made my stay excellent. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Chicago for work or personal reasons. Centrally located an a few blocks from the Navy Pier and the Subway and the L.

The location of this hotel is great...just two blocks from Michigan Avenue and all the shoppping. Also a short walk to Navy Pier and to the Beach. Northwestern University campus buildings are located behind the hotel. A full breakfast is available every morning and an evening reception every night. We will return again.

This was the noisiest hotel I've ever stayed at. With a large gap under the door to let all the noise from the atrium into the room, and absolutely no sound proofing between the guest rooms, it was impossible to sleep. The loud partying from both the lobby bar and the room next door went on until 3:00 in the... More

Front desk help very nice, quick valet and check in. The room was a corner room. It was nice. The ceiling was dirty. Black on it across the room from the vent never being cleaned then weird yellow spotty stains over the whole ceiling. Weird. ..I think I said that already.

Perfect spot for night out in Chicago. It's in the middle of downtown, close to many restaurants, clubs, etc. Hotel's very quiet even though it's located downtown. Very good breakfasts, nice open hours in the lobby bar. Enjoy my stay everytime I have a chance to visit.
