Other than a late check-in, it was a perfect stay. Very family friendly. Staff is very helpful -- make sure to ask for dinner suggestions! Conveniently located within walking distance of nearly everything.

We stayed in a corner lake view room for two days before Christmas. The hotel staff from the bellman to the front of house staff were incredibly nice, smiling and helpful. The view from the room was wonderful as we had a wonderful view of the lake and a view of the river. Get a southeast corner room. The corner... More

The hotel shows its age. The only two problems were that anyone sleeping in the living had to much exterior light coming thru the shutters and the noise was bothersome. The best rooms are in the corners of each floor because of less noise

Very nice hotel - good location. All the staff were exceptionally friendly. Good breakfast. The suites offer a generous amount of space. The atrium is particularly nice. Really nice hotel - I'd definitely choose this property the next time I'm in Chicago (assuming I need to be in the same area of Chicago).

I loved everything about this Hotel except for the pool! Be prepared to be blown away by the breakfast. It is some of the best food that I have had in a while. The Rooms were great and I received the utmost care from the staff. I would highly recommend this Hotel to anyone interested.

I stayed here for the annual Midwest band and orchestra conference. What I would care about if I were reading this review: it is very clean, breakfast is free with cook to order omelets, there is a pool, short walk to Magnificent Mile. This is my 2nd stay here and it was better than the first. Because this was a... More

My family desperately needed a get away. I planned a surprise/mystery trip for us to Chicago with the main idea being checking out all of the Christmas decorations and holiday happenings. The drop off parking was not easily spotted, but very friendly service when we found it. There was only one check in person, but she was very friendly. The... More

It's so hard to beat the features of Embassy Suites when traveling, isn't it? We travel to San Antonio, Texas regularly for business, and know this is one of the best Resort destinations for our needs. I recommend Embassy Suites all the time...

Pros- Soft beds. Nice breakfast. Cons- Parking was a nightmare. I thought I paid for it when I ordered the room, but it wasn't the case. The parking guy was not very nice about the whole thing. We actually had to go back inside the hotel and ask them if we had paid for the parking. The bathroom only had... More
