First time at hotel with family for stay-cation over Easter. Location great, room well sized, beds comfortable, very clean. Overall happy and would come again. Leave an extra hour in the morning if you plan to eat at buffet - we waited but had to leave line or lose museum tickets. Line was easily 30-45 minutes to get to food... More

I stayed at this hotel this past weekend for a group on 5 guys. We had a corner room, in my past experience at Embassy Suites the corner rooms are huge but this is not the case here. They are still large rooms but not what I've had in the past. They do not have roll-away beds, so if you... More

We traveled to Chicago for a quick family trip and wanted to be close to Navy Pier, the Michigan Avenue Miracle Mile shopping strip and Giordano's Pizza on Rush Street. The Embassy Suites delivered on all three requirements. The parking garage within the hotel is also a real plus, and unless you want to pay for valet, just do the... More

I am really starting to look for and stay at Embassy Suite Hotels and this one is no exception. The view was specatular - both inside and out. The suite was LARGE with a living room and Sleeping room; only separated by a washroom. The morning breakfast is why I chose these hotels with "made to order" eggs and a... More

This hotel is huge and sprawling, with the interior atrium open, so when you step out you can see all the floors, and every time I opened the door, I could see a kid sprinting madly about the corridor on at least one floor. This is a family friendly hotel; it is all suites, and gives everyone the space they... More

Convenient location for a business trip. Cab fare from Midway was about $30 before tip Lobby is not at street level. Good staff. Room was spacious though nothing fancy. Lobby is basically a huge atrium. Food was good. If you happen to arrive early and want to check in before 2 it's an extra $20. Wifi worked but was an... More

With Embassy Suites, we always get a comfortable room, and meet awesome friendly staff. Of course breakfast is great too. And don't forget the evening managers reception. That always saves us the cost of at least one meal on our trip.

We chose this hotel based on location and the fact that it had an indoor heated pool. For both of those reasons we would stay again. This is a family friendly hotel. Proximity to all the the main Chicago tourist attractions is great. Lots of things are within walking distance or a short cab ride. Pool and free breakfast buffet... More

I love Chicago. This was a very nice hotel. It was great in location, staff, value, and breakfast! This hotel is in a very convenient location. A full convince store is right across the street; and so is a park! My family and I went last December and fell in love. The hotel is in the perfect distance of everything... More
