This place isn't the Ritz-Carlton. It isn't then Hyatt. It isn't the Four Seasons. But for $80 a night in downtown Chicago it's not going to be. I am giving the Chinatown Hotel an Excellent rating because for $80 a night in downtown Chicago it was exactly what I thought it would be. True, the building is old, the decor... More

We booked 2 rooms to this hotel online, (2 couples) as we check in, the staffs are very friendly, quick check in, and quick check out. Room wasn't big, but enough room to up and walk around, basic Amenities such as hair dryer, iron and etc.... Microwave are in the breakfast area. Right in Chinatown, closed to the Subway station...

Am an African tourist who, with my wife, had visited 4 other states before Chicago. We booked for 3dys but on arrival, our booking was said 2 have been cancelled. After argument, we were given a room for just one night: WHAT A BLESSING IN DISGUISE. With an extra $60 dollars we got a 3-Star Hotel by River Side. By... More

Not for everybody but I loved it. It felt authentic and refreshing to be surrounded by so much culture. Chinatown itself felt safe but surrounding area is sketchy. Rooms feel worn out but being able to get authentic well prepared Chinese at 3am and grab a beer with my husband made for a memorable night. This is real chicago but... More

The Chinatown Hotel Chicago was located in Chinatown. It was a 5-minute walk from the Chinatown-Cermak red line CTA subway station, which was a 15-minute ride from Grand red line CTA station in the Magnificent Mile. I felt safe in the brightly lit Chinatown area even though it was desolete during the day and night. The Chinese generally kept to... More

if you have the choice to sleep in your car or in the Chinatown Hotel, pick your car. This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff is rude, the room is terrible, the other guests are loud and obnoxious and the neighborhood is scary. I had to pound on the door across the hall to get... More

I think it is important to have a little perspective before firing off a bad review. I opted to stay here for an event at McCormick Place because all other hotels in the immediate area are double or triple - I try to fiscally conscious when traveling for business. The hotel itself reminds me of a Chinese restaurant that was... More

This hotel was nothing it advertised. The pictures online are very misleading. There was hardly enough space to walk around the room. All of the fixtures (closet bar, soap holder, toilet paper holder, etc.) were broken. The bed didn't have a fitted sheet, so there were two top sheets that were too small for the bed. I ended up sleeping... More

Stayed here one night because of its low price. Will never stay here again. Although the China town hotel in Chicago website claims they have cable tv, they do not. There are televisions in the rooms-that have zero channels. How frustrating to turn the tv on and find not a single channel. Why have tvs at all? I guess the... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures sprinkled throughout the neighborhood ranging from animal structures to pagodas, a tile mosaic, Chinatown Gate, and a Buddhist Temple.
