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

Stayed at the hotel for one night, had a fantastic time. The embassy suites is a great brand of hotels offering the complimentary breakfast and evening reception. Had an upgrade to a premium room which was fantastic. Amazing views of the hotel and other buildings. Plus the snacks on the premium floor were greatly appreciated. The bartenders were great and...

Clean and comfortable. Suite with two beds and a pull out sofabed in a separate seating area was perfect for our family of five including two teens and a tween. Location provided easy access to shopping and bus to aquarium. Parking was close and convenient (although pricey) and breakfast was amazing! Can't think of a single menu item they didn't... More

A nice hotel in an extremely convenient location. We had a room with the two double beds and the pullout couch and found it very useful for our family of 5. The free breakfast in the morning was great as well. Only downsides... the hotel was a bit noisy at night and the parking is very pricey, but you'll have... More

We stayed here for a number of reasons. First was the location. It is situated halfway between Michigan avenue and Navy pier, which made it accessible for a number of the things we wanted to do. Second was the price. For what we paid over spring break, it was a good value (for the most part). Third was it is... More

The hotel was great. It's located close enough to many attractions that you can walk. When we checked in Kenan was more than helpful. The hotel has a free cook to order breakfast that is really great. They have an afternoon happy hour daily.

Nice hotel in the heart of downtown Chicago. Convenient location. Walking distance from the Navy Pier, Magnificent Mile, etc. Room was clean and well equipped. Check in process was a little slow (stood in line for 20 minutes) but other than that, our stay was very pleasant. We took advantage of the free breakfast each morning which was convenient and...

My family took our first trip to Chicago and enjoyed our stay. The location is pretty good and the employees were welcoming and friendly. I felt the pool was a bit small for my taste but it was still good to have. The breakfast was good although the pastries were a bit stale and the omelet line was ridiculously long.... More

The location was ideal, the public spaces of the hotel were clean, spacious and well maintained. The rooms were decent sized and clean, but very ran down and they look more like a Days Inn than a Hilton brand hotel. #1433 had a broken handle on both the toilet and the bathroom door. The view from the room is decent... More
