I travel a lot and I appreciate the breakfast and cocktail hour that Embassy Suites provides. The rooms here were comfortable, but like most Embassy Suites, I felt they were a bit dated. I'm there for work, so the throngs of families and children running through the lobby are not in sync with my own rhythm, but I can understand... More

Being an Embassy Suites hotel I expected more. The location was great and easy access to everything. I had a premium king suite but it was very outdated with stains on the ceiling and around the ventilation unit. The rooms are definitely in need of some upgrades. The complimentary hot breakfast and evening reception were great though. I probably would... More

I stay with HIlton brands most of the times in Chicago. For the first time I stayed at this location and would definitely stay here again. Was very conveniently located from my meeting place. The best part of this hotel is the atmosphere in the lobby. The breakfast service was excellent and the sitting arrangement was not crowded. Very good... More

We recently stayed here for a long weekend, it is large suite style hotel with an open atrium, the rooms were clean and tidy if somewhat a little dated in decor. As part of the package you get breakfast which has a large selection of hot and cold foods, with a made to order omelet area, in general the food... More

The hotel is great, very clean with a super friendly staff. My husband and I were only there for one night, so I don't have too many stories to tell. We booked this hotel because we needed a place near to the Brazilian consulate. We took the light rail from the airport to downtown and walked a few blocks. The... More

First off, all but one of the staff are very friendly and will go the extra mile. The guys at the front door are excellent. The bartenders, breakfast staff, and housekeeping are superb. The woman working at the gift shop has the personality of a dead cat. My wife went inside twice to make a purchase. Both times the woman... More

This hotel is centrally located in the heart of downtown Chicago. It is easy to find (our GPS took us there no problem), but difficult to actually get inside as there is no obvious entrance or doorman on the busy streets surrounding the hotel. After circling the block several times - not easy to do in downtown Chicago - I... More

We had a wonderful stay during the Chicago Marathon and would love to stay her again for our daughter's graduation but the price doubled for that weekend, way too expensive when there are hotels that are also nice and located downtown.

I visited with my family for a vacation and was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. At first the layout of the room seemed odd, but it really worked for us. Breakfast was great and you really can't beat their buffet with anything nearby. Convenient to the El and many restaurants, but not on the main streets so it seems a... More
