We stayed here for a concert at Soldier field. The location was great for Navy Pier and the magnificent mile. The staff was very helpful. The room and food were great. The only issue was riding the elevators - sometimes it was a very long wait. We even had to finally go up in order to be able to go... More

The Embassy Suites Lakefront was our home base for a weekend family trip to Chicago. We arrived around 230pm and were asked if we needed help with our bags, which we accepted. The check-in is located on the 5th floor “sky lobby” where the line to check-in was 6-7 people deep resulting in about a 10 minute wait for check-in.... More

We were there for 4 days in August. Great location. Excellent property. Valet parking was pretty expensive. Premium suites are worth the extra money. Breakfast was great as usual and evening cocktails were amazing. In my travels, my first choice is always Embassy Suites. The rooms are always bigger than other hotels and "cooked to order" breakfast and evening cocktails... More

Beginning with our check in with Hannah at the front desk we were treated very well by the staff of the Embassy Suites. The lobby boasts a nice seating area that accommodates guests for the complimentary breakfast and social hour each day and during the off times provides a gathering place for family and friends. The indoor garden and water... More

Great location, walking distance to many attractions. Very clean. Beautiful lobby with free happy hour and breakfast daily. Morning Hostess, Shirley, is outstanding - so friendly and outgoing. A Whole Foods market is being built across the street from hotel - will make this location even more enticing in 2015.

We were there for three days and were pleased. The rooms were huge for Chicago standards. Our boys loved the layout to explore. Elevator ride is very cool with a great view. Location is ideal. Almost half way between pier and Michigan ave. Breakfast was good - only got omelet once however due to long lines. A nice place would... More

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

First, I must say that Dinah at the front desk was a tremendous pleasure. She checked us in a couple of hours early, she gave us a couple of room options, and well, she was just plain nice to us--what a pleasure! Hotel is standard Embassy fare. Room standard for Embassy was spacious, clean, and no problems at all. Good... 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
